6 Reasons You Should Visit Wanuskewin Heritage Park in Saskatchewan

I’ve always had a fascination with history. I suppose I have my folks to thank for that. They always made an effort to stop at every historical point of interest during family road trips. As kids, my folks would have my siblings and I read the signs that would explain where we were, and what […]

Photo Du Jour – Sunsets, Power Lines, and Saskatchewan Silhouettes

After being surrounded by the the tall (but increadibly awesome) trees of Ontario for a while, coming to Saskatchewan was a breathe of wide open air. I borrowed some family wheels and hit the road running. Touring this province is no easy task. Hours upon hours between stops, long and exhausting highways, and if you’re not […]

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – The Surf Lifestyle in Tofino BC

I’ve been on a real west coast stint as of lately with Fridays photo of Vancouvers Skyline and countless posts in the last couple months about British Columbia. So just to be consistent, I’ve decided to share a video by Tourism Canada of one of my favourite locations in Canada. Tofino is a surf town […]
