Brisbane, Queensland Australia – A Few Things to See and Do

By | November 30th, 2018|Activities, Australia, Travel|

Most people probably know Brisbane as the huge tourist destination it is in Australia, where all kinds of theme and water parks can be visited and fun can be had by the entire family. That wasn’t what I wanted to do in Brisbane and even though I found a lot of things to do, there [...]

Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, More Than Just Koalas

By | November 24th, 2018|Activities, Australia, Travel|

Probably my best and favourite memory of Brisbane in Australia was visiting the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (website). Apparently the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary. I had really wanted to visit a sanctuary when I was in Alice Springs but unfortunately the dates I was there didn’t work for the dates they were open. [...]

London, the Last Destination in The 2016 European Museum Tour

By | November 8th, 2018|Activities, Europe, Travel|

The final destination on The 2016 European Museum Tour was actually the first place in Europe we arrived. London, England. My favourite city. After living in London years ago, I always jump at any opportunity to go back and visit. I love the feel, the history, and the architecture of the city. It just always [...]

Things to Do in Victoria, BC – Including a Few for December

By | May 30th, 2018|Activities, Canada, Food, Travel|

Between the drive and ferry rides, Victoria is only a few hours away from Vancouver, BC. So it is possible to do for a day trip. If you can though, it makes a wonderful weekend away. I find during the Christmas season places take on a magical feel to them with the special events and [...]

Things to Do in Paris that Aren’t Museums

By | November 1st, 2017|Activities, Europe, Travel|

Paris is Paris. By that I mean you don’t go to Paris to only stick yourself in museums. There are so many things to see and do in this amazing city. Sure there are the standard tourist sights, but there are also a few slightly different things that can still be touristy. Or maybe even [...]

A Layover in Guangzhou, China with China Southern

By | October 24th, 2017|Activities, Travel|

Last year I was reading emails when I saw one that said flights to Australia from Vancouver were something like $660 return. Turns out that was USD but still I jumped at the opportunity and booked myself a flight for $845 CND return. It meant I had two long haul flights with one stop each [...]

The 2016 European Museum Tour Continued in Paris

By | October 19th, 2017|Activities, Europe, Travel|

Europe is one giant tourist dream with so much to see and do everywhere you go. One of the best aspects of Europe is the history. There is so much of it, and while countries and cities continually modernize, they value their history and reuse it. Paris is no exemption. Palaces, hotels, train stations, all [...]

Travelling from Vancouver to Victoria by Ferry

By | August 4th, 2017|Activities, Canada, Travel|

In all the years I've lived in Vancouver, I have never experienced travelling from Vancouver to Victoria by ferry, in July or August. I guess I always thought it would be too busy. I was missing out though. BC Ferries (website here) even has a really cool special feature just for the summer. Plus, there [...]

The Tour from Alice Springs to Uluru and Kings Canyon

By | July 26th, 2017|Activities, Australia, Travel|

The Tour from Alice Springs to Uluru and Kings Canyon Wow! Australia knows how to impress you and scare the living crap out of you, all at the same time. You know, just enough so you start questioning your sanity. Enter the tour from Alice Springs to Uluru. I mean, while I am busy admiring [...]

Swami’s Yoga Retreat – A Review of My Stay

By | June 12th, 2017|Activities, Australia, Lifestyle, Travel|

I climbed out of the car, stepped on the soft grass, felt the heat of the day in the air as it touched my skin, and suddenly the most incredible feeling of calm and peace settled over me. This was my immediate impression upon arrival of Swami’s Yoga Retreat (website). It didn’t leave me for [...]
