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 [...]

London is a massive city with so much to offer, it is impossible to list everything. But what I can do is list a few of the places where I have spent time shopping and eating in London. I can also try to share a bit of information on what is available and what you [...]

Getting Around London – With A Few Basics to Help Plan

By | July 23rd, 2018|Europe, Travel|

London as a town, city, and major port was established by the Romans almost 2,000 years ago but settlements have been there for something like 6,000 years. To say London has experienced everything probably isn't even an exaggeration. It survived the plague, tyranny, many wars, and it has survived a lot of growing pains. It [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Amsterdam – Where The 2016 European Museum Tour Began

By | June 5th, 2017|Activities, Europe, Fashion, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

One day at work I opened my emails, and there was a beaming one (maybe it was just beaming in my memory). It was from WestJet, offering a new route to London, England.

Accommodation is probably the largest expense when you travel.  Hotels are the more expensive option and hostels or camping are obviously the cheaper options. Smack in the middle of those choices now though is Airbnb (website). Not only is Airbnb cost efficient but you choose the location, the accommodation type, the extras you have access [...]

By | April 21st, 2017|Australia, Canada, Europe, Fashion, Lifestyle, Travel|

When I flew to Europe last year I noticed my black compression socks were stretched and no longer in their original shape. They didn’t have all of the elasticity left in them. I knew I needed to get myself a new pair for flying to Australia and New Zealand. Obviously I needed a pair in their [...]

I was at the car dealership the other day with my S'well Stainless Steel Insulated Water Bottle (website) when the receptionist told me she’s been seeing everyone at school with one.

Spongelle My New Favourite Shower Accessory

By | October 31st, 2016|Australia, Canada, Europe, Lifestyle, Travel|

Ahhhhh, the warm, sweet fragrance of Bourbon Vanilla. It is a subtle scent that makes you feel cozy and comfortable, but also that you are loved and safe. A clean scent that wraps you in a big hug. Coconut Verbena on the other hand reminds you of the hot sun on your face and warm [...]
