West Coast, Best Coast: Adventures in Vancouver

West Coast, Best Coast: Adventures in Vancouver
I’ve wanted to visit Vancouver ever since the 2010 Winter Olympics.  NBC’s sweeping shots of the city, surrounded by water and snow-capped mountains, made Vancouver look like it was something out of a travel Instagram account.  Of course, Instagram didn’t exist back then so you knew that shit was all #nofilter.  As with our Montreal trip,...

From vieux to nouveau, Montréal is the perfect blend of food and culture

Canada’s been great so far, but coming from London I do miss being constantly surrounded by history.

Islands, Waterfalls, & Game of Thrones: Four days in Croatia

Islands, Waterfalls, & Game of Thrones: Four days in Croatia
A few months ago, before we learned we were moving from London to Toronto, we decided to put together a road trip to visit the Balkans.  With each “Well, we haven’t been to ____ yet…”, two more were generated, to the point where our road trip itinerary included nine countries.  Rather than pare down our...

You'll Wanna Go to Ljubljana

You'll Wanna Go to Ljubljana
I’m going to start this post by making it crystal clear that we booked a trip to Slovenia way before the election; it wasn’t a post-November 8th “let’s get in touch with the new First Lady’s roots!” type of weekend getaway.  Come to think of it, Slovenia was the first place where people DIDN’T ask us...
