Whistler in the Fall

With whistler so close it makes for the perfect day trip from Vancouver. Even though I have spent the last 2 winters snowboarding Whistler and Blackcomb I have never been up the mountain when its not covered in snow, until now. What I’m wearing: J Crew necklace ( on sale here ) | J Crew […]

Lynn Canyon Park

I adore autumn. The leaves changing colour, the cool breezes that make putting on a knit the most amazing feeling and how good things smell in the crisp air. Plus things are just prettier when the leaves are a rainbow of warm colours. Not that this scenery needs any help in looking amazing! My mum […]

Camping at Chilliwack Lake

Summer is here, so now we can go camping without freezing our asses off… much. We headed off after work to Chilliwack Lake (about 1 hour 40 minutes drive from Vancouver), the sun was shining and the weather perfect. Going camping is still something I’m getting used to, no back country for me thanks, not […]

Portland, OR – Day 1

Off on another road trip, it has been way too long since the last one. This time its down the coast to Portland. Just a quick weekend away but packed with lots of food and sight seeing.

What to do in Portland

So I’m off on a little roadtrip to Portland today, just 3 nights away but it should be a lovely little trip. I’m looking forwards to exploring the city some more, last time we drove through we only stopped for half a day on our way back from San Francisco. Some tax free shopping and […]

Othello Tunnels, Hope BC

We have a bit of a habit of waking up late on our day off together and then deciding on some random place to drive to, this time that place was Hope. Its about an hour and 20 minutes drive away for us and a rather pretty drive too, especially as all the leaves are […]

Cruising Glacier Bay

This was the perfect day – relaxing, stunning, blue skies, glasses of wine, getting dressed up… it all happened. Cruising into glacier bay we were all on the lookout for wildlife as there was plenty to be spotted. Around midday we arrived at Margerie and Grand Pacific Glaciers, I was actually very surprised at how […]

Skagway Alaska

We docked in Skagway early in the morning but we took our time to enjoy breakfast (even stuffing a few pastries in some napkins for snacks later… don’t judge I know you do it too!). Then it was all aboard the White Pass train, which conveniently stops right next to the ship. Although the train […]

Alaskan Cruise – Juneau

Day 3 – We arrived in Juneau at about 1pm, the sun was shining and we were looking forwards to some on-land sightseeing. We disembarked and bought a bus ticket from one of the onshore vendors to take us to the Mendenhall glacier (this only costs $8 each way for those of you planning a […]
