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…

Tips for Travelling with your Pet (in Hotels)

Tips for Travelling with Pets

One of the worst feelings for a pet owner is that ache when you’re away from each other. Vacations can be really hard. Mike and I have definitely been there and so, whenever we can, whenever it makes sense, we try to plan a trip where our dogs can come along too (thank goodness for dog-friendly hotels!) But we don’t bring Olive and Artie along on our trips before weighing…

Explore Alberta: Day Trip Ideas for Red Deer / Lacombe County

Red Deer Lacombe County Day Trip Explore Alberta

Each summer, Mike and I make a point to explore a part of our backyard we’ve never really explored before. That’s why during a weekend in July we drove south to check out Red Deer and Lacombe County!  Normally when we drive through Red Deer we literally just drive through it. Gasoline Alley was the extent of my Red Deer experience up until this summer (“wait, Red Deer is more…

Travel: Top 5 Best Rides at Disneyland & California Adventure

Best Rides Disneyland California Adventure

This summer my brother surprised his son with a birthday trip to Disneyland where the whole family came along too. I’d been to Disneyland nearly 10 years ago and Mike and I had been to Disney World together just a few years ago, but this would be our first trip with little ones (niece and nephew).  We went on some rides with the kids and some rides on our own,…

  • My favourite appetizer at the new @thebutternuttree is their Grilled Bannock topped with wild mushrooms, berries, pumpkin seeds and "winged kelp." πŸ€— It was delicious! The Broccoli with crispy pork belly and leek ash coated duck egg (check my IG Story for #yolkporn!) was also excellent. Beautiful plates and beautiful views at this restaurant too (high ceiling windows all over). We had a lovely dinner last night at the #yegmedia event in a private room with #yegfood friends! Pricing wise- appetizers at #TheButternutTree are $13-$19, entrees are $28-$44, so it would make for a bit pricier a night out but you'll find a lot of unique ingredients here. You can tell lots of care is going into these dishes. Congrats on your opening Chef Downey & team! And thanks @bonafidemediapr for inviting us to check it out. #MeetatTBT ☺️

  • My favourite person to get my #yegseglegs with! πŸ‘«@mikethyking & I killed it (if I do say so myself 😌) on @rivervalleyadventureyeg's segways yesterday while filming for @travelalberta's "Edmonton on Wheels" promo video! πŸ’• I actually wish I could segway as a primary means of transportation, it's so fun/easy (and you can end up going so fast it's thrilling! πŸ’¨)

  • Sunday Funday! πŸ’• Today we went on the 15-passenger @urbanpedaltours bike through @oldstrathcona with @travelalberta! We stopped at @elcortezyeg (for chips, salsa & guac 😍), @maltandmortar, and @situationbeer before renting segways & bikes from @rivervalleyadventureyeg! It was a pretty wicked day exploring Edmonton on wheels. I can't wait to see the video (not airing until next spring lol). I LOVE segways!! #yegseglegs πŸ€— See more from the day in my Insta Stories!

  • Thanks to the nearly 40 people who came out on the fourth Instagrammable Walls of Edmonton photo walk (#IGWallsofYEG) with me & @britl today! πŸ’•πŸ˜ŠπŸ“Έ 20 walls and 7 km later, safe to say we explored the heck out of Edmonton. πŸ˜… I'm excited to head to Calgary next weekend with @mikethyking & @tourismcalgary to help map out their most #instagrammablewalls! If you've got #yyc wall suggestions, please let me know. (We'll be crowdsourcing all week! πŸ“Έ)
