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!!

Madame Tussauds Las Vegas

On our last day inย Las Vegas we visited the infamous Madame Tussauds Wax Museum!! Although it might not be as impressive as other locations, we did not expect too much, and we had a surprisingly good time walking through and judging all these wax celebrities!! Some of them were SO real looking!! We were so…

Sedona, Arizona

Almost threeย years ago we met up with one of our best friends from South Africa (who is currently living and working in San Diego), and took a trip that would surely stand out as one of the best ever!! This trip included stops in Monument Valley and Grand Canyon… On route to Monument Valley we…

Relaxing at the Bellagio Pools

On our short visit to Las Vegas, we were staying at the Bellagio… Because you know, we really really wanted to!! We picked up a couple tips (like the $20 room upgrade tip… which works great by the way!!), rekindled friendships in the most unlikely of places (looking at that Irish people we know…), but…

Prospect Park Smorgasburg

The Smorgasburg located in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, reminded us of the good old Hazel Food Market in South Africa. The Hazel Food Market was literally around the corner from our house, and a favourite stop for us every Saturday!! Here in Edmonton the closest thing to these markets would be farmers markets. To tell you…

Grand Central Station – NYC

Grand Central Station is undoubtedly one of the busiest and most beautiful stations in the world. Of course a visit to New York City won’t be complete without a stop at Grand Central. The activity in this place is SUPER CRAZY!!! You really just want to stand in the corner and admire the fact that…

Best Time to Visit the Charging Bull

When me and hubby were compiling the list of places we wanted to visit and things we wanted to do while in New York City, naturally the Charging Bull from Wall Street came up. Granted, this wasn’t top of the list, but when else are you going to get the opportunity to take a picture…

Views from the Top of the Rock

Everybody loves a great view, and the view from the Rockefeller Centre does not disappoint!! Also known as the ‘Top of the Rock Observation Deck’. We really had two choices: Go up the Empire State Building (aaaah Sleepless in Seattle ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) or go to the Top of the Rock… Hmmmmm…. a view from the…
