It’s not uncommon to hear people exclaim that they need another holiday, immediately after returning from a holiday. They can be stressful, jam-packed and itinerary-filled. Perhaps it’s a holiday with the whole family, or more of an adventure-themed getaway, but taking a holiday doesn’t always mean it’s going to be relaxing. It’s so important to...Read More
The nights are drawing in, there’s already a distinct biting chill in the air and the once green leaves have begun to rust and fall from their branches; autumn is here. But as we battle the drizzle and prepare to head into the new season bundled up in our knitwear and looking towards Christmas, the...Read More
The CN Towner Rocket 58 seconds to the lookout level of the CN Tower for a 360 degree view of the city from above the skyscrapers, then make your way to the Glass Floor located on the SkyTerrace and test your nerve!

In my wanderings around Belgium, I of course stopped off at perhaps its most famous city: Bruges. I even set aside more time for it, anticipating there’d be more to see and was right to do so.

Amsterdam is a place I never really thought I would visit; maybe I was intimidated by its famous stories prostitution and drug-hazed weekends and assumed I’d save an interesting trip for when I’m ‘older’.
