I couldn't get through a #Manitoba   #winter  without a #travel  getaway to a warmer climate. 
I’ve just returned from a six-week winter getaway and have come to the realization that it’s not the cold that I dislike about winter as much as the lack of colour. White is not...

Great article on eating in #Iceland. #gastronomy   #localeats

I really love Rembrandt's Bistro. It has a chic ambiance, lovely country setting, deliciously creative culinary offerings, and a terrific wine menu. Rembrandt's is a great place for a romantic dinner, a lunch with the girls, or a lovely restaurant for any special gathering. I highly recommend it.
