Blue Mountain Weekend Getaway & Tips

Hi there! We just got home from a fun weekend skiing at Blue Mountain and I thought I would whip together a quick post to share some of our picture and my top ski/boarding tips for your adventure! Pack some tissues and chapstick – this may sound like a silly little tip but you will thank me at the top of the mountain! I always forget how much the cold makes my nose run and…

Lumina Borealis in Kingston, ON

Hi there! I hope you all had a great winter holidays and new years! Its our first week back to work and we are slowly getting back on our feet and back into a routine! We spent our Christmas holidays driving over 2,000km to visit family in Boston and London, ON, which left us pretty tired at the end. It has also been extremely cold (-40C today with windchill), which has caused us to slow…

Toronto Christmas Market

Initially, I wasn’t going to do a blog post on our trip to the Toronto Christmas Market since things are a little hectic before the holidays. However, I thought it would be fun to share some pictures and updates on our holiday plans! Last weekend, we headed to the Toronto Christmas Market for our first time. We decided to go during the day (even though we missed the light shows) since it was less crowded,…

Maui, Hawaii

The BEST 6-Day Maui Photo Itinerary

Hi there! Welcome to the BEST 6-Day Maui Photo Itinerary! We love to plan vacations and we hope this guide will provide you with a well thought out itinerary! We visited Maui directed after our week in Oahu and therefore we had a pretty quick flight. To our surprise, we found that there was a pretty big difference between our time on Oahu and Maui. We found that there were more activities to do on Oahu…

Oahu, Hawaii

The BEST 6-Day Oahu Photo Itinerary

Hi there! I know I originally decided to do individual posts about our recent honeymoon to Hawaii but I came to the realization today that it would take ages and you/me would probably lose interest. This week I am going to share one mega post from Oahu and one mega post from Maui! Disclaimer: I should probably tell you that I am an avid itinerary planner – it is a lost skill nowadays! We packed…

Algonquin Provincial Park

Algonquin Glamping Photo Diary

Hi there! We recently got back from a “glamping” trip near Algonquin Provincial Park. We try to get together with the same group of 15-25 friends each year and decided to check out the Algonquin fall foliage this year. We decided to “glamp” since none of our friends owned camping equipment and we couldn’t resist the luxuries of a house. Glamping refers to ‘glamorous camping’, however one of my co-workers joked that we were ‘glottaging’…

Fall Inspiration in Hamilton Ontario

Hi there! As you may have gathered from social media, we were in Hamilton Ontario this past weekend on a nostalgic trip. We both spent 6 years in Hamilton for school and have many fond memories of this place. We also knew that we wanted to hit up some of the fall colours after getting back from Hawaii last week. I thought we would get up early each day to catch sunrise but we ended…

Zip Lining through the trees at …

Hi there! A few weekends ago we went zip lining at the Skywood Eco Adventures and had a great time! We had previously been to a zip lining aerial course in Quebec that was phenomenal and we were wondering how this local one compared. We just did the zip lining course this time and I was expecting it to be done quite quickly. To my surprise the tour actually lasted 3 hours and was very…

Brockville, Ontario

Check out the new Brockville Railway …

Hi there!! Every time I think we might be running out of local destinations to explore, we stumble across another one that blows us away! A couple of weeks ago Brockville opened the Brockville Railway Tunnel that spans underneath the city. My sister-in-law (Yes I can say that now!!) and my father sent us photos of this tunnel on separate occasions during its opening weekend. If you have ever been to Brockville then you know…

Canada

My First Time to the Canadian …

Hi there! As you may have gathered from the title, I visited the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) for the first time this year! I may have gone as a child, but this was the first visit that I can remember so I think that counts! We have been meaning to visit the CNE for many years but usually head to the cottage on summer weekends or Labour Day weekend. As many of you know, we…

Visiting the West Montrose Kissing Bridge

Hi there! Today we wanted to share some pics from the beautiful West Montrose Kissing Bridge from earlier this summer! As you can see above, the West Montrose Kissing Bridge is the only remaining covered bridge in Ontario! The West Montrose Kissing Bridge was the cutest little bridge and definitely worth a detour if you are in the area. The area is a little difficult to access since the adjacent land is private property and there…
