A Taste of Iceland

A Taste of Iceland

Iceland isn’t necessarily known for being a food destination. Because it’s an island, and there’s not much arable land, they have to ship a lot of food in. That’s reflected in the prices. It’s not super cheap to eat dinner out, that’s for sure. Here’s […]

Iceland – Between the Continents

Iceland – Between the Continents

Iceland is one of the most geologically interesting places on earth. Because of it’s location on the mid-Atlantic range, the geothermal activity is rampant. This is why there are so many volcanoes, lava fields and hot springs throughout the country. One place you can see […]

Iceland – The Blue Lagoon

Iceland – The Blue Lagoon

Visiting the Blue Lagoon was the thing I was most excited about on our trip to Iceland. This is easily one of Iceland’s most popular tourist destinations – and I think it deserves the hype. The Blue Lagoon is about 45 minutes outside of Reykjavik. […]

Iceland – Driving the Golden Circle

Iceland – Driving the Golden Circle

One of the ‘can’t miss’ things to do in Iceland is the Golden Circle. The Golden Circle consists of a few prominent sites, including ├×ingvellir National Park, the Gulfoss Waterfall, and Haukadalur Geothermal area. There are a few other stops you can make. One we […]

Iceland – Chasing the Northern Lights

Iceland – Chasing the Northern Lights

One of the reasons we chose to visit Iceland during the time of year we did was to see the Northern Lights. A couple weeks before we left, I saw this article from The Lonely Planet about a new Northern Lights viewing centre just outside […]

Iceland – South Shore Drive

Iceland – South Shore Drive

We meant to get en route on our drive down Iceland’s highway 1 down to Vik early. But not all best laid plans come into fruition. The night before, we fell asleep at like, 9pm due to a combination of not sleeping on our red-eye […]

Iceland – Visiting Reykjavik

Iceland – Visiting Reykjavik

What inspired us to take a trip to the Northern-most capital in the world on the verge of winter? Not sure. I wanted to take an island vacation, and this is where we ended up. In reality it was always a dream to visit Iceland. […]

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 […]
