Vegan Christmas Gift Guide

Vegan Christmas Gift Guide If you’re a vegan, buying another vegan a gift in the holiday season is a piece of cake. If you’re not a vegan, this can be a daunting task. There is so much stuff that’s off the list. Handbags? Gotta check they’re not made out of leather. Ditto wallets, belts, and […]

Acer Restaurant Toronto Airport

Acer Restaurant Toronto Airport I love airports! Now, I realise I may be very alone in feeling this way – Airports can be stressful and sad places. Saying goodbye to my family in Australia and using LAX as a layover to Canada manages to hit peak stress and sadness in one trip! But my average […]

One King West Hotel Toronto

One King West Hotel Toronto We had one night left in Toronto before our long-haul flight to Thailand, via a quick layover at an ungodly hour in Hong Kong. We wanted somewhere close to the AirBnB apartment we’d been staying in for the past four weeks, so we didn’t have a nightmare with our suitcases. […]

Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta

Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta This time, my lack of adventurousness is pretty lame-o. For our Grand Canyon visit, I’d torn my hamstring so we had to take it easy.

After we checked out Lake Louise, we also did the “moderate” walk up to Mirror Lake, Agnes Lake, and to Agnes Lake Teahouse. Let me describe some of my symptoms to you during this walk: Dizzy spells, to the point of tipping over […]

Medieval Times Toronto Canada

Medieval Times Toronto Canada When I was in California with my sister last year, I described Medieval Times as good looking men with long hair and beards, riding horses. And accordingly, it seems rather popular with bachelorette/hen’s parties. Medieval Times describes itself as an exciting, family-friendly dinner attraction inspired by an 11th century feast and […]

How To Cook Quinoa

How to Cook Quinoa What is Quinoa? The quinoa we cook with is a seed. The plant itself is related to spinach and beets. We use quinoa in a similar manner to grains and cereals, so there’s a common misconception that it’s a grain. Traditionally, it was one of the main foods used by the Incans, along with maize.  […]

Banff Gondola

Banff Gondola One of the things I love about travel is how universal some experiences are. Some things just transcend language. I’ve seen examples of this being on a train on the western suburbs in Sydney, Australia. Everyone in the carriage was Sudanese apart from me. And one of the guys was copping it from several […]
