Living the Cottage Life at Clear Lake, Manitoba

When my wife and I moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba for the summer of 2015, I was told that we were entering cottage country. There’s plenty of jokes about Winnipeg, ranging from that flat landscape to the harsh winters but when it comes to lakes and cottage life, there’s no better place to be. Experiencing some… [Continue Reading]

Whale Watching in Tadoussac, Quebec

I can honestly say that I never once imagined going whale watching in the province of Quebec. It was my birthday actually. The day before had seen us (My parents as well as my fiancé Karla and I) go strolling around the old city of Quebec, drinking amazing mochas, standing in front of wall murals,… [Continue Reading]

Three Moose and a Mountain | Hiking Gros Morne, Newfoundland

It surprises me that after visiting Newfoundland more than a dozen times, I had never hiked their treasured UNESCO World Heritage site. When I look back though, I was never as adventurous as I am now. With a curiosity and passion to visit the most beautiful places on earth, it was without a doubt that… [Continue Reading]

Kayaking Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick

Stunning. The only word I could think of as I glanced out over the Bay of Fundy near Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick. The water was as smooth as glass, with a calming light-coloured background of blue hues. Stunning. Although I had gone to simple see the rocks and the rising tide, I was actually more amused… [Continue Reading]

For two weeks each summer, scattered around the city of Winnipeg, lies a unique chance to travel around the world without actually getting on a plane.

Experiencing Humanity at Winnipeg’s Museum for Human Rights

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead I was told that the most impressive feature of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights was the building itself but this couldn’t be more wrong. Sure, the building is […]

Finding True Music at the Winnipeg Folk Fest

It was my first folk fest and I wasn’t sure what to expect. Actually, I had never camped at a music festival before. I have been to Burning Man, which is absolutely amazing, and I’ve been to one-day music festivals as well but this would be my first time at a true music festival. I had heard something […]

Pure Tranquility Within the City | Thermëa Spa Winnipeg

I just got back from paradise, only this time I’m not talking about Hawaii, Bali, or the coast of Mexico – I’m talking about the Thermëa spa in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I’m not kidding. I think this place may have saved my life. After months of intense stress, my back was knotting up, my legs were […]

Flying High Over the Canadian Rocky Mountains

“Look to your right” the Pilot said as we passed some mountain sheep resting high up on the cliff. It was amazing to fly so close to the mountain peak and witness these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. They were basically resting on the peak of a mountain! I fell in love with helicopters […]

WhiteWater Rafting on the Kicking Horse River

There are many ways to see the Canadian Rockies. You can ride a bike, fly over them in a helicopter, drive the scenic highways, go for a hike, take a gondola ride, ski down them or sit on a patio drinking a beer with the mountains as your backdrop. I’ve done all of them. But […]

Become a Cowboy or Cowgirl Amidst the Beautiful Backdrop of the Canadian Rockies

I honestly thought that I knew everything about the Canadian Rockies. Okay, maybe not everything, but after living in Calgary for the last 10 years, I’ve had my fair share of Rocky Mountain experiences. I’ve spent a lot of time camping near beautiful mountain lakes, enjoying world-class skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, hiking, and even riding in […]
