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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

What is a Canuck? The History behind the Canadian Nickname

Throughout my travels I’ve met people from all over the world. Many of whom proudly wore, or defiantly protested a nickname their countrys people have been given by another. While some of them can surely be seen as insults, many even approaching racism, when used tongue-in-cheek, you can’t help but smile. Calling a Canadian a […]

Moose Network Bus Tours Canada

Interview with a Moose Network Travel Guide

I recently had the opportunity to sit down for a couple Red Beers (Clamato + Beer, wuddup!) with Rachel Huber, one of Moose Networks Canadian Travel Guides. She agreed to answer a few questions about what she does and offer up some tips for backpackers interested in traveling Canada. I should also mention that I’ve […]

Terra Bus - Jasper

Roaming on the tip of a Glacier at the Columbia Ice fields

Driving through the Rockies in the warm Canadian summer, it can become all too familiar to see snow & ice, to the point where it becomes as habitual as seeing the clouds surrounding these gargantuan mountains. However, making contact with snow can be rather difficult, as it’s typically a couple thousand feet too far out […]

6 Things I Learned Rafting the Kicking Horse River

A white shuttle bus pulled in front of the doors of the SameSun Hostel in Banff. The doors clunked open. “Hello mate, ready for some rafting?” – Banff has got to be one of the only places in Canada where it’s totally normal to be greeted by an Aussie.  We laughed and replied with a […]
