Edmonton Favourite: 104th Street Downtown City Market

Edmonton Favourite: 104th Street Downtown City Market

I can’t believe this past weekend was the very first time we visited the Downtown City Market — after a whole year and a half of living here — but it could just be our new favourite outdoor market in Edmonton. If you haven’t yet checked […]

Edmonton Favourite: Lock Stock Coffee

Edmonton Favourite: Lock Stock Coffee

Lock Stock Coffee has been my favourite coffee shop in Edmonton for most of the year that I’ve lived here. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram on any of my travels, you’ll know I’m a coffee addict. You’ll also know that I’m at a […]

Bucket list: Santorini, Greece

Bucket list: Santorini, Greece

It’s LESS THAN three months till Greece! Eeeek. I feel like Greece has been on my bucket-list forever so it feels good to be able to scratch it off this September. We will be spending 3 days in Santorini, before heading to a non-tourist town called […]

#SundaySpotlight | 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

#SundaySpotlight | 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

Welcome to a new series, #SundaySpotlight. The series is a type of extended version of my bucket-list, if you will, of my dream hotels or destinations to visit with a weekly spotlight on my latest find. So much of travelling is figuring out where next. […]

A Quick Guide to Disneyland Paris

A Quick Guide to Disneyland Paris

Our travel agent looked us like we were crazy in the head when we asked to book a nights stay at Disneyland on our “romantic” Paris holiday in 2014. But, let’s be honest, he probably doesn’t get many twenty-something child-less couples booking a romantic Parisian […]

Edmonton Favourite: Eating Italian at Uccellino

Edmonton Favourite: Eating Italian at Uccellino

Uccellino [oo-che-LEE-no], and not Uccelini, as Craig keeps referring to it as, is my all time favourite restaurant in Edmonton so far. Each of the meals we ordered were outstanding! And trust me, you can see below, that we ordered our fair share of the […]

Brunching in Edmonton at Canteen

Brunching in Edmonton at Canteen

The trendy 124th Street is packed full of cool boutiques, foodie spots and cute coffee shops including the brunch hot spot, Canteen. It’s the causal little sister restaurant to the fine dining option, Red Ox Inn, which I have yet to try (but you can bet it’s on the list […]

A Foodie Weekend in Calgary

A Foodie Weekend in Calgary

Living just 4 hours away, Calgary is our go-to for quick weekend getaways. The rest of the world will recognise the city for having hosted the Winter Olympics and the best city to fly in to when setting out to travel to the bucket-list destination, Banff. But […]
