8 Rockin’ Breweries in Halifax Nova Scotia!

Haligonians tend to pride themselves as drinkers. (note: a Haligonian is a person from Halifax) The city is filled with pubs, restaurantes, and bars, partly due to the tourism, partly due to the fact that it’s a University town, and partly due to the celtic atmosphere that has evolved with the city. Old buildings, sail […]

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – French Poutine is Awesome!

Mmmm poutine… Perhaps it’s the beers from last night talking, but this Sunday seems like the perfect opportunity to stare and drool over Canada’s greasiest meal, La Poutine. Fries, cheese curds, and gravy. Three incredible ingredients which together make for one of the tastiest artery clogging meals. While I’ve gotten my own poutine recipe down; it’ll […]

Photo Du Jour – Hometown Sunset, Regina SK

It’s been several months since I’ve been back home. This wet summer the maritimes has been having is making me crave the scorching hot dry summers of Saskatchewan. Which inspired me to share this image of my hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan. It was taken during sunset at Wascana Lake. I’m a big fan of silhouettes […]

Luxury Hostels Exist In Banff – HI Banff Alpine Centre

Pop culture hasn’t been kind to budget accommodation. Movies featuring grimey, dingy, cockroach infested rooms have been prevalent for years. While that may be the case in some impoverished nations, or just poorly managed facilities, my experience in Canadian hostels hasn’t seen much of that. Sure, you’ll get an un-comfy bed every once in a while; maybe a […]

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – Whales and Icebergs in Newfoundland & Labrador

For the last year or so, my redheaded friend from Newfoundland (Candice Does The World) has been bugging me to come for a visit to explore the rock in the Atlantic that she calls home. There’s been a few occasions where I had the flight setup online, all I had left to do was fill […]

Photo Du Jour – Time Lapse of a Halifax Sunset

I was doing some writing last night along the Halifax boardwalk and decided to test out a new app I had recently purchased from the iTunes store. I found an old barnacle shell and propped my iPhone up on the slanted bench and proceeded to record for just over an hour. I know that this […]

Canadian Money – How to Understand & Identify our Monopoly Bills

I’ve been stealthily hiding money from myself for a few weeks (which by the way is a passion of mine) and I have finally managed to scrounge up a fair collection of Canadian Bills to showcase here on my mega awesome Canadian Travel Blog. As a plaid wearing Canuck, I’m totally used to hearing all […]

Northern Lights in Northwest Territories

Sunday Canadian Travel Video: The Northern Lights in the Northwest Territories

While I have yet to make the long and arduous journey up to the North West Territories, I’ve found myself going through videos and photos of some of the sights and sounds of the region for years. One of my favourite natural wonders of the north is the Aurora Borealis. This video gives you a […]
