Guide to Instagrammable Walls of Medicine Hat

Instagrammable Walls of Medicine Hat - Explore Alberta

On my mission to map out Instagrammable Walls of cities, I found myself in Medicine Hat! Well, that’s not entirely true. Mike and I drove down to Medicine Hat last weekend to celebrate our close friend Jack’s birthday. While there, we took the opportunity to scout out some Instagrammable Walls. We were able to scout super efficiently thanks to our dear friend Nicole (Jack’s wife), who did some preliminary wall…

Guide to Instagrammable Walls of Calgary

Instagrammable Walls of Calgary

One of my favourite things to do in a city is find their Instagrammable Walls. Every city has them. Being ‘Instagrammable’ simply describes the wall’s aesthetic. These pretty, interesting coloured, textured, muralled, highly photogenic walls make a great backdrop for photos with yourself or your friends. They can be indoor or outdoor, but I’ve primarily focused on outdoor walls (they’re more accessible!)  I think these Instagrammable Walls add to the…

Travel: Weekend Eats in Calgary

charbar East Village Calgary Restaurants Food

This weekend, Mike and I spent a couple days in YYC to map out a Guide to the Most Instagrammable Walls of Calgary (check it out!). In between wall scouting, we obviously had to fuel up with good eats! I love making trips down to Calgary whenever I can because there’s always so much to do and there’s always so much great food to eat. Calgary eats never fail me!…

Travel: What To Do in Toronto

What To Do in Toronto - Toronto Sign

I love being a tourist. Sure, when we’re traveling, it’s great to visit the off-the-beaten-path, less crowded spots. In Japan, we stayed in AirBnBs that were in quiet residential neighbourhoods where we could see kids walking to school in the morning. We ate at a small ramen restaurant at the end of the block and did our laundry at the laundromat around the corner. That’s all very nice.  But I…

Travel: Where to Eat in Toronto

Gusto 101 Toronto Restaurants Where to Eat in Toronto

This summer Mike and I *finally* visited Toronto!! We were there to celebrate the marriage of our two great friends, but also there to eat eat eat (obviously) and tourist hard. If you follow me on social media, you’ll know I tend to cram in “second lunches” and “third dinners” wherever possible on vacations and Toronto was no exception to this. In fact, Toronto really called for multiple meals given…

  • We got a taste of Venezuela 🇻🇪 today at the new(ish) @avila.arepa in @oldstrathcona! 😊 Arepas are corn buns filled with various toppings. We tried pork and beef arepas, as well as these yuca fries and beef patacones (fried plantains). And we had the cochino fritos - delicious fried pork bites! The restaurant was super busy. It was nice to see Edmontonians embracing Venezuelan food! 😋
Fuller review on the blog soon!👩🏻‍💻

  • If you’re looking for ways to give back this holiday season, I recommend donating your time to @SantasAnonymous! 🎅🏻 They need volunteers to sort, wrap and deliver toys for Edmonton kids in need up to their Delivery Weekend (Dec 16/17). Thanks @britl for organizing her annual #yegwrap volunteer party. It’s something I look forward to each year! It doesn’t take much of your time to help make a family’s Christmas merrier.🎄

  • Keeping warm tonight with homemade Budae Jjigae: Korean “army stew!” 🍜 It’s my favourite Korean soup with spicy broth, spam (😍), tofu, mushrooms, noodles, kimchi, onions, hot dogs and sausage. Typically comes with beans but I don’t like beans so. 💁🏻‍♀️ Love eating this with rice too!
(Soup🍜 + rice 🍚 = life).

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but I’m also totally comforted with any potatoes. 🤤🙏🏻 like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with “angry” aioli. 😍 (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfire’s bacon dish). What’s your go-to comfort food?? 🍽

To commemorate the milestone, I’ve written about and shared the podcasts over on my blog (link in bio 📱💻). Thanks to our listeners and to the great guests we’ve chatted with over the past year! 🙏🏻 We’re excited for another year of social media strategizing (🤓🤓🤓🤓)
