Why You Should Brave the Cold and Check Out Winter Stations 2017

In part 2 of my get outside Torontonians series (see part 1 here) I checked out the annual art installation event Winter Stations 2017. Just like previous years it’s located on Woodbine Beach and Kew Beach in the Toronto Beaches area. The event runs from February 20th to March 27th but I do recommend that […]

Houseboat Hunting in Sausalito

We recently came back from a trip to the Bay Area in California. While we got seriously unlucky with the weather (as in it was freezing and raining every single day) it did break up slightly one of the days. We had just finished hiking Muir Woods (post to come on that!) and had stopped […]

1 Year of Blogging and Reflections

Has it really been 1 whole year since I started this whole blogging adventure? Just doesn’t seem possible. Yet somehow 14 posts later here we are. Reflections I started this blog as a way to remember my trips and as a way to get back into writing. In the process I’ve thought a lot about what […]

Ice Breakers at the Toronto Water Front

If you live in Toronto you’re aware of how cold the city can get. And by cold I mean say goodbye to being outside until April. However, in an effort to get people out of their houses a couple of events have been created. One of these events is the Ice Breakers Exhibit at the Water […]

Getting Lost in Lumina Borealis at Fort Henry

This past weekend we drove up to Kingston to check out Lumina Borealis at Fort Henry. We arrived a bit early so we decided to warm ourselves up by walking around town and got blessed with this gorgeous winter sunset. Sometimes being an over-planner works out because we also had enough time to check out […]

Why Christmas in Toronto Rocks

While Christmas and New Year’s may officially have been over for a few weeks (read a full month) there’s nothing stopping us from reminiscing on the lights and decorations (while secretly looking forward to next Christmas already!). Christmas in Toronto is a full month-long event with dozens of markets and festivals and street decor as far […]

Christkindl Market and Wonders of Winter

Every year the City Hall in Kitchener transforms into a German style Christmas Market complete with food, carolers, ice skating and lots more. This year marked the 20th anniversary of the event and it did not disappoint. City Hall was decked out with vendors, food, Christmas decorations and entertainment to convince even the meanest Grinch […]

Container Market at Evergreen Brick Works

Evergreen Brick Works is one of those Toronto landmarks I ALWAYS pass while heading downtown and always mean to check out and somehow never get around to doing so. I’ll admit that the main reason I even dragged myself down there on a Saturday morning was for the beautiful doughnut cones which I’ve been craving […]

Curry Fest at Aga Khan

Last weekend the beautiful Aga Khan Museum hosted the second annual Curry Fest! The event lasted a few hours and included admission to the permanent gallery which was followed by a few hours of food and more food. The event featured a number of popular restaurants from around town. Take a look at the pictures […]
