No visit to Dubrovnik is complete without a tour of the famed city walls. There’s something about the cerulean sea against the pale, slightly pinkish tone of the stone walls that captivates everyone who lays eyes on it. http://www.aminorquest.com/dubrovnik-city-walls-a-photo-journal/

As we exited the plane and made our way to the baggage claim area to collect our things, my heart was full of excitement and nervousness. This trip to Croatia was one I had been anticipating for many years. http://www.aminorquest.com/heritage-travel-visiting-my-familys-homeland/

Apple picking, pumpkin patch and corn mazes near Vancouver that will make your autumn perfect.
As the summer ends and the weather cools, the fall air turns crisp, trees begin their annual ritual. First yellow, orange, then red and finally brown leaves begin to accumulate upon the ground. Before the days get too short and the wet weather sets in, I like to gather the kids and head out in search of the coveted Halloween pumpkin.

Getting away doesn’t have to cost a fortune. With some creative planning, you can enjoy a weekend away that won’t blow (even the most conservative) budget.

Since moving back to the lower mainland, British Columbia, I have been desperately trying to organize a getaway to the Tofino/Ucluelet area on Vancouver Island. It was difficult deciding if we should plan a trip during the warmer months or head over during storm season. Yes, storm watching is a thing on the west-coast of Vancouver Island. It doesn’t matter what time of year you go to Pacific Rim National Park, you will experience some of the most immense panoramic ocean views British Columbia has to offer.

This getaway wasn’t going to be a glamourous weekend of spa retreats and 5 course meals, this was a weekend away with some long-time friends for some much-needed relaxation. A sensible weekend with practical people, some good wine (very good wine) and tasty food we put together in our cabin (mostly snack food because really, who wants to cook).

Having 5 ladies with different travel styles and budgets, the planning process was challenging but with a little research and some suggestions, we found the perfect balance at a great price.

What makes it great: Rustic coastline with views that you will only find on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Endless outdoor adventures, something for everyone to enjoy, regardless of physical capability.

How to get there: Easiest access is via car however bus service is available from the Nanaimo ferry terminal. Something to note, there are 2 ferry terminals very close to each other in Nanaimo, Departure Bay and Duke Point. When returning to Nanaimo to get back to the mainland, ensure you get on the correct terminal for your needs. Take highway 19 north from the Nanaimo ferry terminal (Departure Bay). When you reach Qualicum Beach, head west along highway 4. The single lane highway winds deep into the middle of Vancouver Island and pops out along the west coast where you will head south towards Ucluelet or north towards Tofino.

What to do: Hike the Wild Pacific Trail, Kayak the Ucluelet Inlet or Broken Group Islands (we spotted some black bears). Visit Cathedral Grove, MacMillan Provincial Park, home to some of British Columbia’s oldest and biggest Douglas Fir trees. Take in the public market, Saturdays in Tofino, Sundays in Ucluelet. Watch suffers tackle the big cold waves on Long Beach, Pacific Rim National Park.

What to eat: Our weekend was low key, rather than go out and hit the food scene, we kept it simple and sampled some great fare from 2 very popular food trucks! Raven Lady Oyster truck and Tacofino serving tacos, and other delicious food with Mexican flare of course!

What to bring: In addition to your standard weekend wardrobe, make sure to bring sturdy shoes for hiking, layers including a waterproof jacket and a bathing suit if your accommodation has a hot tub!

Cost: Sharing accommodation was the budget saver on this trip. As well, bringing in some of our own groceries (and vino) also kept costs way down. Our cabin at Terrace Beach Resort was Canadian $199/night + taxes. We did have to pay an additional fee for extra adults, $10/person/night. We shared this extra cost among 5 adults which worked out to about $50/person/night. In addition to the cost of accommodation, the only other expenses incurred were the cost of gas and the ferry ride from Vancouver to Nanaimo.

Would I go again: Uhhh hell yeah!

Every kid dreams of going to Disneyland and almost every parent wants to fulfill that dream for their child. Many people hesitate, knowing that a few days in Disneyland can quickly become very expensive. With some clever planning and a little discipline, a trip down to Anaheim to Visit Mickey Mouse doesn’t have to cost a fortune. We were able to save close to $1,500 by implementing a few simple tricks that any family can manage. Visit www.aminorquest.com to learn more.

Canada has more than 40 national park destinations to visit. Although they are all beautiful in their own right, some of my favorite national parks are located in Canada’s western 2 provinces. They also happen to be 3 of Canada’s most popular national parks.

Having spent three years living and working in Banff National Park I have a slight fondness for the beautiful Rocky Mountains. If you’re planning a trip into the Rockies and you want to take advantage of the free entry, offered in 2017, read on to learn more about 3 of Canada’s most popular and gorgeous rocky mountain parks.

I love to travel but the cost of getting away with kids can get pretty expensive, very quickly. Since moving back to the lower mainland BC, we've been exploring in our own backyard, so to speak. We headed over to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. It's located on the North Shore, 3735 Capilano Rd., North Vancouver, BC. There is an entrace fee, but as BC residents, it's valid for the entire year. The kids love to run around and climb and you can learn a thing or 2 about the wildlife! https://www.capbridge.com/
