Strolling through charming Toronto during fall

Brick filled historic Roncesvalles, Toronto, Ontario-003

I happen to live 1 hour east of Vancouver, BC. It’s a big, beautiful vibrant city! Or so I’ve heard. Would you believe I’ve only made my way that way for bus tours as a kid, or sporadic needs such as the airport? I know. I KNOW! However, this directionally challenged country girl has just […]

Taking in the stunning Wailea Beach Path (with video)

Hi! Not quite Aloha any longer since I am officially back home in Oh Canada! Where did the time go? I had meant a million times over to post more while on vacay and show you a few sights, however each draft just never made it to completion. I call that a small success I […]

I’ve frequented this condo many times over the years and honestly, their current state shocked me.  They were both orange and dry. I honestly thought they were on their way out.  So I decided to […]

Week one here on the island is already a wrap. Can you even believe that?!

Of course… When that didn’t pan out with my yesterday timeframe, I decided to snoop around somewhere a little more local. […]

read

I’m starting to second guess posting this during February. Goodness, these colours are surreal in contrast to all the shades of grey going on here at home right now! However, I’ve been asked some questions on my travel to the Hawaiian islands lately, and in particular, on my visit to Lana’i. So thanks to digging […]

We interrupt this regularly scheduled full-throttle Christmas season with a quick (not really) blurb from the beautiful and vibrant area of Hana, in Maui, Hawaii! How’s my timing?  Truth be told, I know many of you love to read about these adventures, in which a few of you have even booked your trips based on some of these […]
