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…

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!…

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…

What to Expect at Dog Days of May (Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge)

Dog Days of May - Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

Each May for the last four years, the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge “goes to the dogs” for a weekend with its Dog Days of May event. The Dog Days of May is a weekend full of activities for your pooch! The Fairmont Hotels & Resorts have always been pet-friendly (most locations have their own canine ambassadors!) and the Dog Days of May event was created primarily to help people celebrate their pet…

Dog Days of May Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge

One of my favourite hotels – The Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge – is always giving people more reasons to love it. The dog lover in me especially loves this: Each May for the last few years, the Fairmont JPL “goes to the dogs” with its Dog Days of May long weekend event (May 20-22, 2017)! From the JPL’s site: Enjoy the fresh mountain air, quality time with your four-legged companion and planned events and activities that…

  • We got a taste of Venezuela ๐Ÿ‡ป๐Ÿ‡ช today at the new(ish) @avila.arepa in @oldstrathcona! ๐Ÿ˜Š 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! ๐Ÿ˜‹
Fuller review on the blog soon!๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

  • If youโ€™re looking for ways to give back this holiday season, I recommend donating your time to @SantasAnonymous! ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป 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. Itโ€™s something I look forward to each year! It doesnโ€™t take much of your time to help make a familyโ€™s Christmas merrier.๐ŸŽ„

  • Keeping warm tonight with homemade Budae Jjigae: Korean โ€œarmy stew!โ€ ๐Ÿœ Itโ€™s my favourite Korean soup with spicy broth, spam (๐Ÿ˜), tofu, mushrooms, noodles, kimchi, onions, hot dogs and sausage. Typically comes with beans but I donโ€™t like beans so. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Love eating this with rice too!

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but Iโ€™m also totally comforted with any potatoes. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with โ€œangryโ€ aioli. ๐Ÿ˜ (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfireโ€™s bacon dish). Whatโ€™s your go-to comfort food?? ๐Ÿฝ
