Here’s what we recommend when you love travel but can’t quite afford the long-haul international flight and four weeks of accommodations: Take a local road trip. It’s been much too long since we’ve ventured outside North America, but such is life when unpredicted expenses pop up one after the other. To feed our restless wandering souls, we took a few days off recently to drive … Continue reading Trinity Baycation
Okay, see, I know what you’re expecting in this blog post. Pictures of all the fashionable fellas we saw at Rock the Shores in Victoria earlier this Summer. Uh, not quite. What you’re getting instead is pictures of JESS as the fashionable fellas we saw at Rock the Shores in Victoria earlier this Summer. We apologize for the misleading title. But trust me, these photos … Continue reading The Stylish Men of Rock the Shores 2016
Last weekend in Victoria was one we won’t soon forget. We can’t believe we’re saying this, but we’re pretty glad Squamish didn’t happen this year, because we attended Rock the Shores instead. (Somewhere Jesse Boland is reading this saying “I told you so”, haha. More on Jesse Boland in a bit.) Compared to Squamish (or Osheaga) with its 5 or 6 stages, Rock the Shores … Continue reading Rock the Shores 2016
We weren’t exactly warned about how spread out the city of Los Angeles is, haha. As much as we try to walk around every city we’re in, it was nearly impossible this time. So we spent maybe 2 hours on trains and buses…per day. To its credit, though, our hostel was in the perfect location for getting around. We stayed at the Orange Drive Hostel–literally … Continue reading 5 Days in Los Angeles
This is where a sarcasm font would really come in handy. “Eating Well” in this case means eating delicious things that are definitely not good for us. But boy are they worth it! Our very first stop in LA, besides dropping our things off at the hostel in Hollywood, was In-N-Out Burger. You really can’t go wrong with an old-fashioned burger/fries/pink lemonade. Also, we were … Continue reading Eating Well in LA.
Follow my blog with Bloglovin There’s something about a good music festival that just sucks us right in. It could be the sunshine. Or the lemonade. Or the dancing. It could be the feeling of watching a handful of bands you love in the same day. Or maybe it’s the fact you’re surrounded by thousands of really happy people listening to really good music. You … Continue reading Festival Fashions
For those of us here in Newfoundland & Labrador, Westjet has really been on a roll lately. Especially if you live close to St. John’s. A couple years ago, the airline introduced a direct flight from St. John’s to Dublin–GENIUS. (Read our post about it here). 4.5 hours later, you’re in Ireland. Plus, they introduced the new flight at a ridiculously low price–I think we … Continue reading London Called…We Must Go
So that title isn’t entirely true. I’m thinking about it, though, and we actually did quite a bit of screaming while in Montreal. We screamed while watching every Blue Jays game. We screamed at the Bell Centre watching our Leafs play (ie. lose to) the Habs. And we screamed some more at the Dear Rouge show. Mind you, we also chowed down at one of … Continue reading Screaming for Poutine in Montréal
We booked this current trip to Montreal a couple months ago. When we realized Boston would be a five-hour drive away, we decided to rent a car for a couple days and spent a night in the States. We only booked a single night in Boston. Yeah, don’t do what we did. And, for the sake of saving a couple hundred dollars, we booked a hotel … Continue reading Maybe Downtown is Best.
“Well, I took a stroll / On the old long walk” A conversation last week with a friend, Holly, had me thinking about Galway. Again. This is a common occurrence, believe me. If you’re lucky enough to have visited the Irish town, you’ll understand the way we’re feeling. (To any Newfoundlanders & Labradorians reading this, I’m not referring to Danny’s Galway, haha, I’m talking about … Continue reading The Problem with “Galway Girl”
