I recently encountered my first situation where I had to visit a third party for vaccinations. My doctor’s office unfortunately said they do not offer travel consultation or vaccines, so I was advised to reach out to a travel clinic. I did a bit of research and found Passport Health, a global travel clinic with more than 270 locations – and there was a location near me. Little did I know that travel clinics are a whole other animal compared to the public healthcare system…
Anyone that knows me can tell you that I tend to avoid being the center of attention. If there’s a camera involved, I make an effort to either be the photographer (and hence, not be in the picture) or be in an obscure location off the shot - off to the side or far in the back, attempting to play a subtle role. I’m not necessarily camera shy, it’s just that I feel there are much more interesting things to capture. I have never felt motivated to be the primary subject of photos or videos and I choose to highlight the wonderful things around me rather than focus on myself.
I came across this resort about 2 years ago after researching U.S. Relais and Chateaux properties, and MY GOSH – this place is stunning! Not only is it in Hawaii, one of the most beautiful islands in the world, but the amenities and service levels here appear to be of the highest caliber. I don’t know about you, but the ambiance at this property is definitely calling me...
I find it so incredibly easy to get distracted. Whether at home or at work, I am constantly multi-tasking and while I do make many types of lists to help organize tasks, I sometimes [knowingly] become distracted. And I know I’m not the only one… So why do we do this and how can we deal with it?
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.

Located in south-western NSW, the Riverina is an agricultural region which stretches across a vast range of land and differing environments. From the Snowy Mountains to the Murrumbidgee River to the dryer plains of Hay and Carrathool the diversity of this burgeoning agricultural region offers plenty of fun, eco-friendly activities for the whole family to enjoy.
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.
This year on the blog, I’ve decided to add a category called ‘Uncovered Discoveries’ – this category will feature resorts, experiences, tours that I have uncovered through research and find personally appealing and interesting. They won’t be places or experiences I have personally tried [yet], but will be more about highlights of the resort/activity/tour and what has drawn me to it (and hopefully you too!), inspiring thought and ideas. Here’s the first one of 2019 - gorilla trekking art Sanctuary Gorilla Forest Camp in Uganda.
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.
