Par-Tee Putt: Mini Putt in Toronto

I never thought mini putt would be possible downtown Toronto given the amount of space an 18 hole course would take. But Par-Tee Putt has made it possible! With their own spin of course. It’s not like your regular mini putt, that’s for sure. There are no larger than life dinosaurs and no galactic indoor glow in the dark.   However, Par-Tee Putt designed each of … Continue reading Par-Tee Putt: Mini Putt in Toronto

Steam Whistle Biergärten

Steam Whistle’s new biergarten in Toronto is definitely giving major European vibes with its communal style hall, self serve ordering, and high ceilings adorned with real plants. This beer hall also offers authentic German food by Food Dudes which brings me right back to my travels in Berlin. In Berlin, we tried Curry36’s famous Currywurst. Here at Steam Whistle we gave their Bratwurst a try which … Continue reading Steam Whistle Biergärten

Safari in Tanzania

Back in August 2017, I took on the challenge to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with my friend Alicia. And our adventure did NOT just end there! We spent another week in Tanzania visiting a local town to see their various co-operatives, a Maasai village, and the most anticipated of all for me – SAFARI. If you’re interested in such an adventure, here’s some information on my … Continue reading Safari in Tanzania

48 Hours in Cinque Terre Pt. 2

In my first day at in Cinque Terre, I managed to visit 3 of the 5 villages. This second day, I went to see the last two and attended the annual Monterosso Lemon Festival which by chance, we were in town for.

Here’s what I did with my second 24 Hours in Cinque Terre:

1) Hike from Vernazza to Corniglia on The Sentiero Azzurro (The Blue Path). This leg of the hike was quite enjoyable as most of the view was of the ocean. It also gives you a nice breeze as you walk.

2) Enjoy the cliffside view of Corniglia. Continue reading “48 Hours in Cinque Terre Pt. 2”

48 Hours in Cinque Terre Pt. 1

Cinque Terre meaning five lands is an area comprised of 5 villages – Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. Each one is exceptionally beautiful as they all rest along the coastline and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I had 2 full days to explore all 5 villages by hike and by train. Monterosso was my personal bias because during my 3-night stay it was my home.

Here’s what I did in my first 24 Hours in Cinque Terre:

1) Grab pastries for breakfast. From Wonderland Bakery in Monterosso, I had to try a cannoli!

2) Hike The Blue Path (Sentiero Azzurro) from Monterosso to Vernazza. Continue reading “48 Hours in Cinque Terre Pt. 1”

Clam Digging in PEI

Looking for an authentic PEI adventure? I was too and what I discovered was clam digging!

With Experience PEI, we joined their Beachcomber’s Clam Boil  activity ($85 CAD + HST).  It was a great hands-on excursion.  We were given a pair of gloves, a shovel, a bucket, and the free range of a beach to scavenge for whatever treasures we could find from mussels, to oysters, and to clams!

CHILL Ice House

Had a girls night out a few weeks ago at CHILL Ice House which was extremely ironic because at the time we were experiencing freezing rain so it was icy everywhere outside. I can only imagine that must have been why they had a sale on Groupon. For $72.00 CAD you could get entrance and a speciality ice shot for 6 people –  only $12 each. Which was a great deal since entrance alone regularly is $20.00 CAD.

CHILL Ice House is also conjoined with Gatsby’s Tale Speakeasy so when you feel too cold and need a break from all the chilliness (it’s about -5 degrees Celsius but you are provided with optional cape and gloves), you can relax at the speakeasy which is very hunting lodge/ cottage style themed and not to mention cozy!
