Like so many Canadians, I escaped to Florida this year to flee the cold. I don't know about the rest of Canada, but Toronto's winter felt never-ending and spring has been more than fashionably late. So, late one April evening, I found a deal and booked a one week air and hotel package at a Hyatt resort somewhere between Naples and Fort Meyers. I justified the trip as a babymoon for...
Mommy Memoirs: I Met the President (and I Liked It)or Roadtripping with Kids: A Survival Guide
Recently, the Mister and I had the harebrained idea to take our kids roadtripping for a weekend during Spring Break. We based this brilliant decision on years and years of horrible experiences.

Postcard from the Orlando You May Not Know
If you're an Orlando newbie like me, the first thing you think of when someone mentions the city is, without a doubt, Disney World. However, I recently had the amazing opportunity to see Orlando for a few days with Visit Orlando

Ice wine is an obvious winner in Ontario, but you may be surprised to...

Postcard from Napa Valley
Even if you aren't a wine lover, it's impossible not to fall in love with Napa Valley. In every direction, over rolling hills is vineyard after vineyard. Add to that Palm and Cyprus trees, a good measure of lemon and lime trees and rose bushes everywhere. It's pretty much perfection. And the food. I can't even speak about the food. But since...

Postcard from San Francisco
If you've never been to S.F before it's a good idea to do some research before you travel. Like any big city, the tourist experience is quite different from the local life. The cool neighbourhoods and independent cafes and shops likely aren't walkable from your hotel. They're tucked away in more remote parts so unless you know where you're going you won't find...
