Wine, Family Time and a Wedding in Kelowna

A few weeks ago Zevi and I squeezed in one last weekend in BC before summer was over. Some friends of ours were getting married in Kelowna, so we figured we’d make a little weekend getaway out of it.  On Wednesday night we flew in to Kelowna. I do love a good road trip, but it…

My Favourite Moments of Summer 2016

So, hi.  I already did one of those posts where I talked about not blogging, so let’s just skip all that and get right down to it, shall we? Warning, there’s a LONG post ahead! Nice summer days were hard to come by in Calgary this year, but there was still lots of fun to…

Performance in the Park Banff

A Weekend in Banff

Zevi and I went on a mini getaway to Banff this weekend! The weather was a little iffy at times, but we had a great time nonetheless. We made the short drive to Banff on Friday afternoon. It was raining when we arrived, but I’d been stalking the forecast for the last couple of weeks…

Tofino: Eats and Drinks

Despite being a tiny town of less than 2000 people, Tofino has a wealth of amazing places to eat and drink. We ate a lot of amazing home cooked meals when we were there last weekend, so I certainly didn’t get a chance to try everything that the town has to offer, but I did…

Family Time in Tofino

After a great four days in BC last weekend, I headed west again on Thursday. This time, Zevi and I were meeting up with his family in Tofino to celebrate his dad’s birthday. Zevi, his sisters, and his dad’s wife had been planning this trip for a few months, all without his dad knowing anything…

A Family Shuswap Weekend

This weekend I went out to my family’s place on the Shuswap lake for the first time in 2016. As usual, it was a lovely mix of family time, good food, relaxing, fitness, and a little bit of hard(ish) labour.  My sister, her boyfriend, and I hitched a ride up with my dad on Thursday…

Carlo’s Pasta

When it comes to easy and delicious pasta recipes, this one is the best one I know of! Travelling is one of my favourite ways to discover new food. I love eating in restaurants and exploring farmers markets, but the very best experience of all is getting fed by a local. When Zevi and I…

The Five Most Amazing Cities I’ve Visited

I’ve been feeling some major wanderlust lately. Thinking about trips that I want to take (ahem… Japan!) has got me reminiscing about some of the amazing cities I’ve visited in the past. Narrowing it down was no easy task, but here are five of the most amazing cities I’ve visited on my travels. Buenos Aires:ย Of…

La Manzanilla – The Food

The house we rented in La Manzanilla had a greatย kitchen, but we didn’t cook once duringย the entire nine day stay. It might sound crazy, and crazy expensive, to eat out for every single meal on vacation, but the food in that little town is so delicious and so cheap that it was no big deal….
