All of the things we ate at The Ex 2019

All of the things we ate at The Ex 2019

The Canadian National Exhibition, more affectionately known as “The Ex” is akin to State Fairs in the USA. There’s wild food, carnival games, rides I mostly refuse to go on, and so much more. It takes place over the last few weeks of the summer […]

Niagara Restaurant Roundup – Counterpart Brewing

Niagara Restaurant Roundup – Counterpart Brewing

There’s a real craft brewery boom going on in Niagara right now. The best part, besides the great beer, is that a lot of these breweries feature some great food too. Counterpart Brewing is no exception. We’ve visited this hot spot a couple times so […]

Mexico – A Taste of Cabo

Mexico – A Taste of Cabo

Of course the thing I was most excited about going to Mexico for was the food. We didn’t really eat off of the resort much (except for our boat trip) which I wish we would have been able to do. Next time. Here are a […]

Mexico – Downtown Cabo

Mexico – Downtown Cabo

After briefly visiting Downtown Cabo on our way to the boat tour, we decided that we’d like to make a morning out of visiting again. We could get a taxi from our hotel for about $3 US per person, and it took maybe 10 minutes […]

Mexico – One with the Fish

Mexico – One with the Fish

We had decided beforehand that we wanted to do some sort of excursion offered by our travel company, Sunwing. We had all agreed that we wanted to go on some sort of boating/snorkeling expedition. Our contact point at the hotel told us about an excursion […]

A Taste of Ireland – the Capital

A Taste of Ireland – the Capital

The pomme de terre affair continued into Dublin, of course. For dinner our first night in the capital city, we meandered the streets until we were too hangry to try and choose a place, so we walked into a restaurant close to our immediate location. […]

A Taste of Ireland Part 1 – The West Coast

A Taste of Ireland Part 1 – The West Coast

I went to Ireland expecting a lot of potatoes, and I was not disappointed. I was fortunate enough to have potatoes in many different forms throughout the country. Here is what we ate in Ireland. Our first meal in the country was at a pub […]

Ireland – Dublin’ Down

Ireland – Dublin’ Down

We did a lot more wandering on our second day in Dublin. We visited St. Patrick’s Cathedral, but didn’t go in for a tour. We did sit in the park beside it for some casual dog watching. We didn’t do much bar-hopping this day. We […]

Ireland – Dublin’ the Fun

Ireland – Dublin’ the Fun

I was super excited to explore Dublin. We didn’t really have any set out plans, other than visiting the Guinness Brewery. It was nice to not have to be rushing around from thing to thing, it gave us the opportunity to walk around the city. […]
