Nita Lake Lodge exterior
At last, it was time for our weekend stay at Nita Lake Lodge. Since relocating to Vancouver, almost a year ago, a visit to this beautiful, lakeside lodge had been high on my “BC must do list”. So, when it was time to start thinking of a birthday gift for...
First time snowboarding. Failed experience
Vancouver is the perfect base if you’re into winter sports. I noticed this fact as soon as I set foot on Canadian soil, and this was in summer! I promised myself that the upcoming winter season would be the moment where I would set foot on a slope for the first time...
Mayan Blessing
It didn’t take long before we ventured out of Playa Del Carmen, a Mexican town which draws millions of tourists each year to its white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. We loved the beauty of the ocean, but the jungle was calling. We booked a tour through Alltournative, a tour company...
Wine tasting in Osoyoos
The landscape changed quite drastically as we left the lush rainforest behind and entered the semi-arid region of the South of Okanagan in British Columbia, Canada. Green fir trees made way for golden, rolling hills and scrubby terrain. Adding a splash of colour to the otherwise dry-looking terrain were...
Canoe Yukon adventures
Today, the Yukon only consists of around 35,000 residents, most of whom live in the cities of Whitehorse and Dawson City. With this in mind, the territory is the ultimate destination for adventure seekers in search of places few have ventured to before. In the midst of winter, the Yukon...

While in Whitehorse, the Yukon capital, we opted to visit the Yukon Wildlife Preserve, a non-profit organisation which participates...
Street in Vancouver
Every time you visit or move to another country, there are bound to be things that are different to what you are used to. I arrived in Vancouver on Friday after a 9-hour long flight from London. Since then, I've been mainly trying to sort out all the paperwork. From...
Whistler views, Canada
When I moved to Vancouver almost three months ago, I made sure to take advantage of every free moment to explore the city and surrounding area. Vancouver city is easy to explore in one day, but you will miss out on all that the Vancouver area has to offer. If you...
Grouse Mountain Winter Wonderland, Canada
Winter is upon us and the proud Vancouver mountains were beckoning us to explore their snowy peaks. Grouse Mountain, the peak of Vancouver, had just enjoyed some fresh snowfall and while the ski slopes were still closed, visitors can explore the mountain all year round. My boyfriend had never been in snow, so I...
Grouse Mountain sunset
On a lazy Sunday morning, we hopped into our rental car and 20 minutes later, after driving over the iconic Lion’s Gate Bridge, we arrived at Grouse Mountain, ‘the peak of Vancouver’. Last minute day trips are easy in this Canadian city, with spectacular mountains readily available at your doorstep. In just...
