New blog post: Planning a Trip to Iceland in October

We got to spend two nights in Reykjavik, Iceland in October last year on our way back from Scotland. All the time I was there, I was wishing I had been somewhere outside the city, surrounded by the out-of-this-world natural landscape that Iceland is…

We took advantage of Icelandair’s free Iceland stopover programme and had a lovely two-night stay in Reykjavik in October on our way back to Canada from our two-week road trip around Scotland. We arrived on the same day Hurricane Nicole arrived in…

New blog post: Planning an Epic Road Trip Through Scotland

We had to cancel our April trip to France and Iceland due to a cancer scare. After over a month of worrying like crazy, we found out it was just a benign tumor–thank goodness! But I figured, we should still go somewhere to celebrate the non-cancer…

West Iceland's Hvalfjörđur: Worth A Detour @icelandinspired @westiceland #icelandsecret #iceland

I’ve been thinking about our little detour around West Iceland’s Hvalfjörđur (Whale fjord) a lot lately. I don’t know why. It could be that I’m just missing Iceland in general and the drive around Hvalfjörđur was the last item in our itinerary before we…

Percé and Île Bonaventure: Birds, Boats, and Beyond @gaspesiejetaime @TourismQuebec @Quebecmaritime @explorecanada

Some places you just know you’re going to love even before you’ve ever been there. Percé is one of those places for me. Every time I saw a picture of Percé Rock, I fell more and more in love with the idea of visiting it. Of course I had to add it into our…
