A First Time Beginners Guide to Budapest Hungary

Budapest is easily one of my favourite cities in the world, and I’ll be the first to admit my bias on the Hungarian capital since moving from my native Canada. There are many rewarding things about living in a Central European country where the culture is completely foreign. Yes, the Hungarian language is complex, and the gastronomy may not be the easiest on our tummies, but the Pearl of the Danube offers a wide variety of sightseeing, nightlife, and activities that will tickle anyone’s fancy. Here are my two cents and your quick guide to Budapest Hungary: Guide to...

My Ultimate Indonesian Bucket List Adventure

In the past, I’ve visited Thailand and Cambodia, both excellent introductions into South-East Asian culture and one of my favourite backpacking trips (okay, all of them are my favourite!). However, the other destination I wish I had time to travel was Indonesia, a country rich with culture, history, and tradition. And my friends who’ve had the opportunity to pass through this beautiful country only have incredible things to say. So, when I finally make it back to Southeast Asia, I know precisely what I want to do and see. Without further ado, this is my ultimate Indonesian bucket list:...

Two words: Food and Tour When I see those two words together, I can’t help but salivate at the thought of eating and learning about fresh, local delicacies in some of the best destinations.

A Cooking Class in Rome – Walks of Italy – Review

I would never have guessed that there was a cooking school on a rooftop in the heart of Rome, let alone a very large kitchen with more than enough wine ready to be drunk if it weren’t for my pasta-making cooking class in Rome with Walks of Italy.   On a Rooftop Roman Terrace, Glass of Red in my hand…. There I was, on a warm Friday evening, dining on a typical Roman terrace with a glass of red in hand and homemade pasta being devoured in a fraction of the time it took to make. My dream to...

La Vita Sicilia – For the Love of Food in Sicily

I lived in Sicily for three months during my summer breaks from University working as an au pair (English teacher and nanny). Living with my host family opened my eyes to an interesting and unique culture I have never quite understood. I knew I always loved and connected with Italy (Rome is my favourite city in the world!), but until I was immersed into the family’s daily routine, I didn’t realize how much of an impact being one of the “locals” had on me. It was a turning point in my life and it provided a new perspective in...

Natrel Rink Outdoor Skating at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto

It’s that time of the year again when temperatures drop, holiday spirits run high, and outdoor skating rinks open for the winter season! My favourite outdoor rink in the city of Toronto is the Natrel rink located at Harbourfront Centre. It’s the perfect location and as someone who has been ice skating for 18 years and counting, I love getting together with my other skating friends to practice jumps and spins outside, while gliding by the beautiful scenery. For me, outdoor skating defines the Canadian lifestyle, especially when you think of hockey or figure skating events being held on...
