Algonquin-Park in Autumn Ontario-Canoe Lake

Photo Du Jour: Algonquin Park’s Autumn Reflections

I recently finished a trip throughout the Algonquin Park, a beautiful and historical provincial park that has been named a national historic site. The history in the area is well worth a post on its own, and while I have started it, I am far from finished. I’m still on the road at the moment, […]

Get Fast & Geeky with Segway Tours in Toronto

Rain causes a lot of sports & activities to cancel. Baseball, Football, Soccer, Barbeques, and outdoor music festivals are all prey when it comes down to the mighty talons of an extremely soggy day.

Photo Du Jour – Kalamalka Lake in the Okanagan Valley

I love coming across locations in Canada that break my preconceived ideas of what Canada “looks like”. It’s all too easy to sum up Canada as a big giant nation with mountains, lakes, some arctic regions, a few prairies and a whole bunch of trees. However, there’s many places across Canada that defy that notion. […]
