Our 3 Heavenly Spots in Maui

There comes a time in life when you just have to say STOP. Right? A time when you feel like you have given everything you can at work or for your family/friends… A time for you to take a break… A real break. One where you get to forget the worries of the world and…

Winter Getaway: Lac Brome

Now that the first snow has fallen and that we are all sorrowful about it, it’s time to plan winter getaways. Let’s face it, the only way to survive 5 months of winter (yep: it is 5 months if you live in Montreal), is to spice things up with short trips here and there. If you…

Québec, Oh Québec!

Visiting capital cities of anything is always an interesting experience. Sometimes they’re huge and gorgeous and awe-inspiring. Other times, they’re tiny and quiet and overshadowed by a much bigger metropolis nearby. And then, you have the ones who fall squarely in the middle of that: Beautiful, mid-sized, full of history, and full of charm. Enter:…

Road Trip to Burlington, VT (Day 2)

After a long day of walking and experiencing all kinds of food flavours, it was now time to go check in to our hotel. We usually try to book the cheapest hotels possible since we barely spend time there (unless it’s a resort of some sort). We found that an affordable option for a decent…

Himalayan Food in the Green Mountain State

Being some serious foodies, we’re always on the lookout for different culinary experiences. We’re especially stoked by things we’ve never ever tried or seen before. Enter: The Sherpa Kitchen, a restaurant specializing in Nepalese-Himalayan food. In Vermont. Let us say just how intrigued we were when, in the middle of strolling through Burlington’s downtown, we…

Tiptoe Through the Million Tulips

History is funny sometimes. Many things that you take for granted in the present day almost certainly had a deeper, more significant historical origin. Take Ottawa’s giant annual Canadian Tulip Festival. Every spring, the city becomes home to a literal million tulips all around its more picturesque parks, streets, and waterfronts. Looking at the flowers from…

Road Trip to Burlington, VT (Day 1)

We love road trips! It’s always a great way to go on a mini-vacation with a small budget and with little distance to cover. And the best type of road trips are the ones where you get to visit a different state/province, or better yet, a different country. In these instances, you can feel completely…

Choice Chocolates and Cool Confections

Let’s face it: One of the best ways to capture our attention is to present us with a luscious-looking dessert place. So, when we slowly sauntered up and down Church Street, the many rows of huge candied apples in Lake Champlain Chocolates‘ window display drew us in like moths to a flame (fortunately, there was…

Flawless Flatbread

Apparently, there’s a guy who drives all the way from Montreal to Burlington, Vermont, just to have pizza at a restaurant called American Flatbread (Burlington Hearth). This bit of culinary obsession impressed one of our friends enough that he went to American Flatbread to try out the pizza for himself. Four times. Our friend positively RAVES…
