Montreal is a popular long weekend destination for us in Toronto since it’s only a 6 – 7 hour drive away. I visited Montreal for the first time as an adult over the Canadian Thanksgiving holidays. Here are some of the cool things I did during the 5 days. Live in an awesome Airbnb. Although your stay indoors might be short, a great accommodation does make … Continue reading 5 Days in Montreal
Upon researching what there was to do in the east coast, I came across St. Martins Sea Caves (at St. Martins, New Brunswick) which I was wildly excited about. It wasn’t extremely ‘on the way’ but I was able to work it into the itinerary – a perk of being highly involved in the trip planning and logistics!
However, the caves can only be explored during low tide which only happens twice a day! Unluckily for us low tide on that day was around 6am… Continue reading “St. Martins Sea Caves”
This summer, I went on my very first REAL road trip with friends – to Eastern Canada!! The last time I visited The Maritimes was probably back around third grade with my parents. I cannot remember anything about it – except for my parents giggling to themselves secretly about a rock at Hopewell Rocks that looked a bit inappropriate. Their defense when I brought it up to them recently, was that the tour guide pointed it out to them first. Embarking on this journey with me were Alicia, Crystal, James, Steve and Thomas. You’ll catch glimpses of them in the blog posts and photos to come 🙂
Our one week trip was meticulously planned out and jam packed with various activities (mostly hikes and must-go-to restaurants); going from Toronto –> Montreal/Quebec City –> New Brunswick –> PEI –> Nova Scotia Continue reading “East Coast Trip – Quebec”
We had scheduled for a 2 day, 1 night trip at Yosemite right before holiday time officially kicks in and before prices go crazy. We opted for the cheapest option – a heated tent at Camp Curry. Everyone I told was in shock that we would cheap out so much to live in a tent. But surprisingly and to our delight, it wasn’t that bad at all if you just plan to simply sleep in it. It’s a mini cabin size but has tent-like tarp walls instead of log cabin.
Originally we had intended to borrow a ZipCar which Matt signed up for shortly before we flew out to SF, however his account still had not validated in time for us to use. Thankfully, SF being most technologically advanced, they had an app made for borrowing cars! Continue reading “Yosemite”
I would like to apologize for telling you all that I went to Vermont for Family Day long weekend….Long story short, I have poor geography and was given wrong information, thus mistaken!! I actually went to Lake Placid, New York – home of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics. Continue reading “Vermont.”
