Little Beehive Hike, Lake Louise

Aaaahhhh the Little Beehive Hike has been on our ‘hiking’ list for a while, and last summer (August 2017) we finally got an opportunity to hike this trail. We combined it with a very early stop at the Lake Agnes Tea HouseΒ (you can read more about our quick stop at the Tea House here). The…

Our Suite at the Bellagio

Ever hear about the $20 tip? Well ,if you haven’t, Google it! There are tons of people who have blogged about this little tip when you are staying (or checking in to) the Vegas Hotels! We had nothing to lose, so we tried it!! And it was awesome!!! First off, when we were informed that…

Lake Agnes Tea House

If you are up for a steady uphill 3.5 km climb, you are in for a treat at the Lake Agnes Tea House!! And if you are up early, there will not be any crowds…. it is well worth it!! I first did this hike with my mom (and no, I have not posted any…

Laughing Falls, Yoho National Park

We headed into Yoho National Park for the first time last year. Only looking to explore the area a bit since we have never been. The fires were ongoing, and there was a lot of smoke throughout our time in the mountains last year (2017). We were camping at Johnston Canyon for a long weekend…

Glacier Skywalk, Jasper National Park

Way back in 2015 my mom visited us for the first time from South Africa. Despite seeing a lot of stuff that was awesome (eeeeek, so behind in blogging about our trips!), this one was an interesting one. It is not for people who have any type of fear of heights. Hubby does not have…

Mystery Valley, Utah

While we were exploring Monument Valley way back in 2014, we decided to do a guided tour of Mystery Valley as well. I don’t recall what we paid for the tour, but I do recall the fighting that was going on between the people who were selling the tours. As I mentioned here, the whole…

Monument Valley, Utah

We decided to head to Monument Valley as part of a trip that included the Grand Canyon. It certainly was an amazing trip, and Monument Valley was surprisingly amazing. This trip had a whole adventure aspect to it, in order to keep costs low was the main reason. We opted for camping (this backfired on…

Sedona, Arizona

On our way to Monument Valley (…..in 2014!), we made a pit stop in Sedona. It was a very interesting little town. Lots of curio shops, restaurants, beautiful scenery, mansions. Our first stop was at the Chapel of the Holy Cross. The location of this chapel is truly amazing, built into the rock landscape, it…

Grand Canyon, Arizona

Today is the last day of 2017. This has been a pretty underwhelming year in terms of personal growth. Nonetheless, we had two fantastic trips – Mexico and Portugal. And hubby’s parents came to visit us here in Canada in the summer. I am not really one for new year resolutions, but would really like…

Portugal Reminiscence

We’re back!!! From probably one of the best holidays of our lives!! Yes, it had a lot to do with the fact that we got to spend it with family!! It also has a lot to do with the fact that Portugal is an amazing country… diverse, cultural, breathtaking, understated. I have only just downloaded…

Johnston Canyon, AB

It is pretty amazing to see the ice formations, stalactites, the blue water and ice, the ice climbers at the end of the trail, the depth of the canyon and the famous landmarks!!

Dog Sledding in Canmore

One of the things you don’t get to experience in South Africa is heavy snow… or any snow for that matter!! Dog sledding is something you add to your list of things to do when you finally visit a place like Canada that do have enough snow!!
