Here is a glimpse into my fabulous last week. Vegas. Road Trip. La Quinta, and today I’m in SF, about to attend a workshop with one of my all time favourite photographers, and I can’t wait!
Yesterday a group of girlfriends and I flew into Las Vegas! I’ve never been before and it feels like I am discovering a whole (bizarre) new world. We’ll be eating, drinking, cabana-ing, and cirque-ing for the next couple of days. Woohoo!
Ok. That’s a little bit of a stretch for “travelling”, but what it really means is that you should travel to Vancouver to come visit. I now live in a house that feels like a place where grown-ups live. We’ve got a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom AND a super huge office.
I scrolled through my travel tuesday images this morning and realized that I haven’t yet shared this one, and it was one of the coolest days of my life. In September 2008, we jumped into Devil’s Pool at the edge Vic Falls in Zambia. Access to Devil’s Pool is only during dry season, which is
Happy Wednesday everybody! Since I missed Travel Tuesday yesterday (in favour of a Richmond restaurant review), I’m going to come at you a day late. The following images of Tigre were taken on my Nikon FM film camera. Tomorrow I’ll talk more about Richmond, about my disappointment, my teensy tiny bit of relief, and our
Today’s Travel Tuesday? (Ooh! Alliteration!) You guessed it: Richmond, BC! I’ve not spent that much time in Richmond (yet), but with a little help from you… all of that is about to change! Starting today, April 24th through next Tuesday, May 1 (at 4 p.m. PST) I need your help! And I need it once
All our bags are packed, we’re ready to go. It’s funny, while I’m not really ready to leave BA, I’m very ready to get down to business in my favourite city in the world. BA has been so, so wonderful. But I love Vancouver. We moved away from Vancouver 1442 days ago, and I can’t
Today, my friend Jenn and I are getting onto an overnight luxury bus (cama suite class) and heading to Mendoza do to a bike and wine tour. Three years ago, I did a bike and wine tour in Mendoza with the hubs, and it was super fun. So I’m looking forward to doing it again.
El Ateneo Grand Splendid, located at Santa Fe 1860 in Buenos Aires, is the most amazing bookstore I’ve ever been to. Originally a theatre, Teatro Grand Splendid, it was converted into a bookstore and cafe. One word sums it up perfectly: breathtaking. On the old stage of the theatre, you find a cafe. A perfect
Butting up to the Puerto Madero neighbourhood in Buenos Aires is the ecological reserve. A huge park, right on the Rio de la Plata. The park is full of willows, pampas grass, and walking paths, and is a great way to spend a morning. Beware – because of super wide paths, there is not a
I’m back with Travel Tuesday this week friends! I’ve got so many non-restaurant related posts all bundled up inside me that I’m just about bursting at the seams! So first – thank you – for being patient well I show off my sweet restaurant review skills to Tourism Richmond (hi, guys!) And before I leave
San Telmo on Sundays is packed full of antiques, tourists and locals. But weekdays. Weekdays are special. Quiet streets. Locals in bars. And sparsely attended afternoon-long happy hours and tango shows in the Plaza Dorrego. Later today, I’m going to do a Foto Ruta in San Telmo. I quite excited, and hope I love it,
Ok friends, here is the promised post on how to get a last minute trip to Antarctica. Because getting to Antarctica is expensive. Really expensive. This year (2012) January and early February rates ranged from $6,000 to $9,000 per person for the cheapest room on the boat (often a triple or quad). Late February and
Happy Valentine’s Day! Well, with that out of the way, let me get on with it! This Travel Tuesday is going to be more along the lines of my recent Antarctica posts (see Days 1-3 and Day 4) than a regular Travel Tuesday post. But, since it is Tuesday and I’m talking about travel, this
We got back from Antarctica this morning, and I don’t yet have the words to describe it. Our trip was everything that I hoped it would be, and so much more. I’ve got hundreds of pictures (culled from thousands), thousands of words of stories, and all sorts of advice about how to do it on
