Things To Do in Prince Edward Island

Highlights From The Road to 150 Prince Edward Island Episode

Prince Edward Island is one of the most beautiful islands in Canada, if not the world. We had only five nights to explore and I truly wish we had the whole summer. Gorgeous sandy beaches, lovely people, and incredibly delicious food make this province a wonderful place to visit. Actually, I learned something new about Prince Edward Island. The province is home to an incredible food culture and is the perfect place for any passionate foodie. We had no idea about the love of food on the island but it didn’t take long for us to figure it out. From cooking lessons at the Table to one-of-a-kind experiences by the famous Canadian Chef, Michael Smith, our days were filled with tasty local delights.

Things To Do in Prince Edward Island

We started our trip by staying in Cavendish, which is home to Green Gables Historical Place and the starting point of Prince Edward Island National Park. Next, we went to Bay Fortune before completing our adventure in the city of Charlottetown. There was no way for us to experience everything the island has to offer but we did experience enough to make some recommendations. [Read more…]

Road Trip Canada | Our 150-Day Schedule

One of my favourite ways to travel is by road and it doesn’t get much more epic than a 150-day road trip across Canada to celebrate the country’s 150th by visiting every drivable province and territory to create a web documentary about what makes Canada the great nation that it is while showcasing some of the countries top iconic attractions and landscapes. This is a multimedia adventure spread across this website, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube. We’ll also be hosting some meet-ups along the way and doing giveaways for you to come join us on an adventure.

If you’re looking to follow along and/or meet us somewhere along the way, you can find our schedule below. It is subject to change and we’re not going to list every activity as we want them to be a surprise. However, you’ll get a fairly solid idea of what provinces and cities we’ll be in throughout the year. Come say hi! [Read more…]

Canada’s Road to 150

Canada's Road to 150

If you haven’t heard yet, my team and I are producing Canada’s Road to 150, which is one of the biggest #Canada150 campaigns of the year. The Road to 150 is a 150-day nationwide multimedia road trip celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday by exploring the uniqueness of this country provincially and collectively while answering the question; What makes Canada special?

We will drive to and through every province and territory (except Nunavut as there are no roads), showcasing Canada’s natural beauty and regional attractions while interviewing Canadians of all cultures and backgrounds. Our aim is to dig deep into what makes Canada such an incredibly inspiring country while showing off the best of Canada’s tourism to Canadians and to the world.

It has taken an insane amount of work to pull this off. It didn’t help that the idea came to me just after Christmas either as I had just missed the deadline for #Canada150 grants. However, after emailing over 200 companies to find a suitable sponsor for the campaign, Best Western decided to support us. Best Western is the perfect sponsor for a campaign like this, as they have hotels all across the country and all across the world. For anyone going on a road trip, they’re conveniently located in almost every province and territory in Canada. Without Best Western, this campaign wouldn’t have happened. [Read more…]

Breakfast and Dinner at Syrahs of Jasper

Syrah's of Jasper

After a beautiful day exploring the scenery of Jasper National Park, including a Jasper Skytram ride and a drive on the Icefields Parkway, it was time for a delicious meal. Since we’re not in Jasper often, my wife and I decided to eat somewhere fancy. After some research, we ended up at Syrahs of Jasper. Ranked very high on TripAdvisor, Syrahs of Jasper provides an intimate, warm-hued atmosphere with gourmet regional Canadian cuisine such as elk and salmon. [Read more…]

Exploring Kicking Horse Resort Via Ferrata

There’s something special about looking down at the Columbia Valley from 7,700 feet. The blue-tinged river snaking its way around the lush green valley and the seemingly endless array of mountains surrounding my 360-degree view. Then again, I’m actually hanging off one of the mountains as I make my way up to Terminator Peak via Ferrata.

New to Kicking Horse Resort (created in 2015), the Via Ferrata is a great activity for thrill-seekers looking for a chance to experience mountain climbing with few of the risks. I love trying new things so it wasn’t hard to convince myself to go. My wife, Karla, joined as well.

Skiing Above the Clouds at Kicking Horse Resort, British Columbia

With over 2,800 acres of skiable lift-served terrain and the fourth highest vertical drop in North America, Kicking Horse Resort is one of the top ski resorts in British Columbia.

This was only the second time I had skied in BC. Living in Calgary, I typically go to the closer resorts such as Sunshine Village and Lake Louise but when Dax Justin (a Rocky Mountain Instagrammer) mentioned the possibility of a trip to Kicking Horse Resort, I knew I had to check it out.

Indian Food with a View | Clay Oven Winnipeg

Claypot Winnipeg

Words can hardly describe the pleasure of a mouth-watering Indian dish hitting the tastebuds and the Clay Oven is an Indian restaurant that doesn’t disappoint. Actually, it’s not just an Indian restaurant. It’s an East Indian / Hakka restaurant. Imagine the combination of Hakka-Asian food and Indian. Do I really need to say more?

As if the delicious food wasn’t reason enough to visit, Clay Oven has a speculator location (one of many) right in the Shaw Park stadium with views of the baseball game below. Why buy a ticket when you can combine watching the game with sitting on the Clay Oven patio drinking beer and eating samosas?

Gorgeous Views on a Budget | Vancouver, British Columbia

As one of the world’s most beautiful cities, Vancouver is a place that must be appreciated with an incredible view.

Skyline Luge | Calgary’s Newest Attraction

Calgary Skyline Luge

Calgary’s Canada Olympic Park has always been the City’s top place for exciting activities. They offer North America’s fastest zip-line, inner-city skiing and snowboarding, downhill mountain biking and the chance to experience a 100 Km/h 4-person bobsleigh in the winter months. It’s always a fun time and the summer months just got more exciting with the addition of Skyline Luge.

I’ve actually tried Skyline Luge on Singapore’s Sentosa island before but Calgary’s track is three times longer. It’s tons of fun speeding down the hill, sitting in a plastic car with gravity taking you down the track.
