Las Vegas, Baby!

Big thanks to Kay for sharing this amazing view with us from the 36th floor of the Cosmopolitan!

If you have me on Facebook, you will know that on my first day down in Vegas, I wrote an entire blog post only to have WordPress crap out on me while I was trying to save it. Lesson learned here: type everything in Notes first.

So here, we go: my first (and only – sorry, it’s a long one) “official” post about my trip to beautiful Las Vegas! Continue reading “Las Vegas, Baby!”

One + Four = Life: new job, new baby, easter weekend

I have decided to take on the One + Four = Life‬ picture challenge by Pip over at Meet Me At Mike’s. Check out her post here for the deets, but the basic idea is to show your life in four pictures per week.

travel to taste – canadian favourites

Most people remember the feeling of hot sand between their toes and salty water in their eyes. They talk about touring world-renowned galleries, or seeing that famous landmark that adorns travel brochures and souvenir shot-glasses. They laugh when recalling sketchy hostels with squeaky, lumpy bunk-beds that only costed £9 a night (what do you expect?!)

Believe me, I have those memories. 

But my favourite ones, by far, are the tastes. The “I Had Heaven in My Mouth” memories that excite my salivary glands just thinking about them. The ones that  make me want to spend $900 on a flight so I can relive that experience once again. 

I may enjoy the moment, the ride, the sights and the sounds, but it all boils down to this: I come for the food.  Continue reading “travel to taste – canadian favourites”
