Review: Unrooming Hotel Blackfoot with Hotels.com (#UnroomingCA)

Hotel Blackfoot, Calgary

You’ve probably heard of the concept of “unboxing” right? Unboxing videos are all over YouTube – it’s where people film themselves opening up the boxes of their purchases for the first time and doing first impression reviews of the products inside. I’ve viewed my fair share of unboxing videos in the past, so when Hotels.com reached out to see if I’d ever heard of “unrooming” and whether I’d be interested in…

Explore Alberta: Columbia Icefield, Glacier Skywalk, Jasper SkyTram, Maligne Lake

Travel Jasper - Explore Alberta - Canadian Rockies - Jasper SkyTram Mount Whistler's

I have a new friend (co-worker) who has basically driven out to Jasper every weekend this summer. He’s big on hiking/mountain climbing and Jasper is close enough for frequent, nature-filled day trips. His beautiful photos made me especially excited about the trip to Jasper I took this August!

Grand Taste Tour 124 Grand Market Farms

(Photo above: getting an urban farm tour at Lactuca Farm Northlands during the Grand Taste Tour in July!)  I’m super excited for the weekend (August 20 + 21) – when farms and ranches across Alberta open up to the public for the fourth annual Alberta Open Farm Days 2016!  Alberta Open Farm Days is like a big open house for the province’s farms. It gives Albertans the easy (and for the most part – FREE!) opportunity…

Recap: Exploring Alberta on the Alberta Prairie Railway!

Alberta Prairie Railway - Stettler - Big Valley - Train - Travel Alberta

As Mike and I continue to staycation the heck out of this province, we were both pretty excited to cross ‘train ride’ off our Alberta summer vacation list. I first heard of the Alberta Prairie Railway a few years ago. Someone I know had tried it and loved it – then recommended it to me, but I can’t remember who!! (So if it was you, please let me know!) I’d been meaning to go on…

  • I love taking out of town friends to some of my favourite restaurants in the city. Tonight, we feasted at @rostizado_yeg with our friends Jack & Nicole from Medicine Hat + @yourbestfred & @catherine0626! 🙏🏻🙌🏻 Always get the platter. Always get the roasted cauliflower. Always get the churros. 🤤 Literally, everything we had was delicious but those are always my fav.

  • A lovely #MothersDay brunch at @deltaedmsouth today, where I tried ground cherries (that beautiful orange Harry Potter Snitch-looking fruit) for the first time! 🤗 Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there-- including all the fur moms. ✊🏻

  • Gotta love a friend who doesn't even hesitate to share a gigantic noodle soup lunch with me! 😍🍜
@ginagariano & I had a tasty #budaejjigae & spicy seafood #jjambbong at @leehousefamily today. Totally satisfied my craving for spam, spice and soup. Though, could've had 3x more spam 🤤❤️ lol

  • These truffle grana padano fries with garlic aioli were like the cherry on top of an amazing menu tasting at @cactusclubcafe tonight! 😍 Our group tried port wine salmon, braised chicken tacos, a tabbouleh avocado bowl, short ribs & oxtail ravioli 🙏🏻 and we learned about the #CactusClub's impressive test kitchen and process for rolling out new dishes to its 30 locations across the country. Basically - it's not easy, they roll out slowly, and they don't rush anything. 👌🏻 Gotta love the consistency here.

  • Had the idea of going on a tuna #yegfood crawl put into my mind by @gordtoast and have to say, I'm 100% in! 😍🐠 One of my favourite tuna tatakis is from @cactusclubcafe, where we celebrated our friend @thommale's birthday over the weekend before two epic games of laser tag. 🙌🏻

  • A rollercoaster of emotions this weekend: disappointment when I realized @xix19 only does Saturday brunch at their St. Albert location (and not the Terwillegar spot I was at). 😫 Then delight when I got to order the Ahi Tuna Noodle Bowl off the lunch menu instead. ☺️ Basically their delicious tuna 🐟 twists appetizer in noodle bowl form. 😋 Paired with a Berry Breeze drink on the patio = happy Linda.
Keep the patio weather coming! 🙏🏻☀️
