This is the second post to be included in my new category, Uncovered Discoveries. As a recap, this category will feature resorts, experiences, tours that I have come across online and find intriguing, but that I have not personally experience [yet]. I will be touching on highlights of the resort/activity/tour and what aspects of it have captured my attention (and hopefully yours!). This month is Winterdance Dogsled Tours located in Haliburton, Ontario, which is only a 3-hour drive from Toronto.
You may have noticed that I often feature posts on Niagara Falls and surrounding areas. This one will be no different, as this is our third year attending the region’s Icewine Festival. Here are a few highlights, a couple of new wineries and a few tips when booking your own future visit.

Ontario is full of such diverse and wonderful travel options. Every region offers something new and interesting to every kind of RVer, especially those who love the great outdoors, amazing scenery and exploring new territories.
Travelling around Ontario in an RV opens your world up to new possibilities, giving you the enviable chance to visit new hiking spots, search new trails and venture into different areas.
Below are our top picks of RV parks around Ontario. We've included a variety of landscapes, hopefully opening your eyes up to new destinations and giving you the chance to immerse yourself in Ontario, as you've never done before. Enjoy.
Winter in Canada generally includes blistering cold days filled with an abundance of snow, fewer daylight hours and lots of warm layers. For me and for a few other Canadians who aren’t eager to endure the cold weather or engage in most winter sports, that means many days ‘hibernating’ lay ahead.
I just spent three days in one of the most beautiful Provincial Parks in North America. Algonquin is simply pristine, with an abundance of nature and wildlife (though we didn't personally see any large wildlife). Very little written content this week because a picture is worth 1000 words - I hope these few speak to you.
Last weekend, Dan and I stayed at The Pinery overnight for some R&R and outdoorsy time. This was our third trip to this location (my fourth), which is about 2 hours from home, and is a park that we enjoy every time we go. People generally associate camping with kids/families/budget travel options, but camping offers more than that – it is time outdoors, being active via hiking/swimming/canoeing/etc., while ideally disconnecting from the busy world at home (minimal phone/Wi-Fi use) and just enjoying the scenery and the company. AND it can be quite fun – even for childless adults like us!
I am WAYYY behind on photo processing and sharing my images on my 'official' channels, but moving forward, I will be sharing some of my recent photos at least once a month via my blog. So here is a photo post dedicated to June’s Summer Solstice! Bring on the flowers and the sunshine, baby!
One of the perks of committing to one area for several years is discovering the best local foodie restaurants near home. Having lived in Toronto for over 6 years during my university days, I knew of numerous local hot spots that my friends and I would gravitate to, and often. Now, living out of the city and in the suburbs for the last 5 years, I’ve had to rediscover what constitutes ‘the best restaurants’ in my neighbourhood – the best in the ‘Tri-Cities’ area. Here are a few of my favourites!
Following a wet and rainy April, along with an ice storm and extreme winds mid-month and even last week, May is making a spring comeback! I won’t lie, I spent most of my time this week taking outdoor photos rather than writing a post, but I have no regrets. Here’s glimpse of all the beautiful things that I saw now emerging with the warmer weather. It can only get better from here.
Dan and I had the pleasure of visiting Stratford last weekend and it was a weekend of R&R that we both appreciated. Here are a few of the highlights…
I’m working my way through life in Canada and traveling when I can afford to explore beyond the border. Sharing my tips, trips, opinions and rants on life and travel in the meantime.
