Canadian Camping Adventures

I grew up in the UK and never went camping, so my first camping trip with my husband and young baby was definitely a learning experience.

I was horrified when hubby suggested tenting, but settled for a cabin by a lake. Little did I know that I would have to learn how to use a wood stove a... Read more

Canada's unexpected gems and why I always set out with "my doll" and a mission.
I am not Canadian! 

I say this not because of my place of birth, (which was in England incidentally) or because of any legal papers, passports or ceremonies but because I fail my own predetermined set of three standards - Firstly I do not think Canadian beer is great, in fact I don't think ... Read more

Hey Uncle Bob....Let's Drive Auntie Shelley to the Top of a Mountain
