I don’t recommend you do 24 hours in Reykjavik. I recommend at least 72 hours, but that’s because I love Reykjavik so much that I think it deserves more of your time. That being said, a lot of people take advantage of Icelandair’s free stopovers between Europe and North America (and why shouldn’t they). I … Continue reading 24 Hours in Reykjavik
They say ‘third time’s a charm’, but for me, the first was all it took. Chicago had me at hello, and I’ve proclaimed my affection for it ever since. I most certainly like Chicago more than New York, believing that Toronto is much more like a mini-Chicago than the “Little Apple”. I love Chicago’s neighbourhoods, … Continue reading Chicago 3.0

My job requires me to do a lot of creative content, so by the time I’m done work, I really don’t want to turn the computer back on and write more travel content. I’ve been pretty good lately about shutting down … Continue reading Ooops. I’ve been AWOL.
As I planned my #FCRoadTrip travels through southern Quebec, I was rather excited to discover that the region known as “Centre-du-Quebec” (aka the bit between Quebec City and Montreal), is a haven for antiques and antiquing. Who knew!? Being that my mum and I have a bit of a thing for antiques, we decided to … Continue reading Antiquing in Quebec
