Travel Diary: Our 4 Days in Vancouver, BC

You’ll know from our last visit to Vancouver, we only had a whole 24 hours to explore the city! And in between all that, still had to get ourselves to a visa appointment, so even that 24 hours wasn’t spent doing everything we could. Nonetheless, we did A LOT. See our recap over here. This […]

The Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff

Banff Rimrock Resort Hotel

It was our first Christmas in Canada away from all our friends and family in South Africa and only a month into my Canadian adventure. Nervous that we would be a little homesick, we decided to spend it surrounded by Christmas bliss in the mountains. After all, what is better than a White Christmas in […]

A Guide on Where to Brunch in Edmonton

Where to Brunch in Edmonton

Brunch is my new favourite meal. I could quite happily brunch all day, erryday. But it also seems to be the thing to do in Edmonton (or Canada in general?). Go to any main restaurant on the weekend and they will slap you with a Brunch menu that runs until 3pm. Not a breakfast menu. […]

Edmonton Favourite: Sundays at Little Brick Cafe

Little brick for Brunch

One quiet Sunday afternoon, we found ourselves at a little brick house in a charming suburb called Riverdale. We stumbled upon couples, families and friends entering the wooden side-gate following the path to a bright red door to match it’s outscape. It was, and is, as storybook-like as it sounds. The unique-style cafe is unlike […]

Edmonton Favourite: District Bakery & Cafe

Nate Box, you glorious human. Thank you for contributing so much to coffee cafe culture in Edmonton. Not only did he open my new favourite spot in Downtown YEG, but he also opened Elm Café in Oliver, Burrow inside the Central LRT station and, the most recent addiction, the Little Brick Café in Riverdale (all of which […]

Edmonton Favourite: Coffee Bureau

I am a self-proclaimed coffee-snob, having come from Cape Town, the city boasting the best coffee shop in the world, according to the Telegraph, I am slightly obsessed with finding the best coffee shops wherever I travel. It’s usually the first thing I research and the first stop on all our travels (post-hotel-check-in of course). So […]
