What do you love most about fall? Is it apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes or the cooler temps? Our favourite thing are the colours and scenic drives that make you appreciate the new season. The scenic drive to and around the area is exactly what we experienced during our first fall ... Read more
As Travel Bloggers we try to do as much research in advance of our travels and love it when we learn new info or facts our research did not uncover. For example, every Canadian is proud of the fact that Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone but do you know why? Secondly, do you... Read more
Do you believe in ghosts? We’ll admit that we were skeptics at first, but after going on our first ever ghost-hunting tour and paranormal experience, Whisper to The Moon, we now think and believe ... Read more
As 2 busy professionals we do not get the chance to go paddling as much as we’d like to. Thankfully, the Grand River is only 1.5 hours away from the Toronto area and offers every single type of paddling out there. You can try: rafting, a canoe, kayaking, paddle boarding or something new tha... Read more

Traditional and romantic at the same time, the Christmas market is wildly popular and draws tourists from all around. It’s based on the ancient European Christmas markets and has an authentic village feel.

We have a confession to make. At first we thought Perth, ON and Perth County, ON were one and the same. We quickly realized we were mistaken and that the two are no where close to one another. This lovely rural area is ho... Read more
"Are you a unique snow-loving couple or individual? House sitter wanted for 66 acre property in Northern Ontario" This little blurb settled our fate for the winter of 2014/15.
