The cusp of Summer and Fall always feels bittersweet to me. It’s the turning point between my two favourite seasons, so I always feel a bit wistful when one has ended, yet excited for the other to follow.

The Magic of Barn Weddings

Two autumns ago, I posted some snapshots of a cozy weekend getaway I enjoyed at our friend's warm and inviting rustic family barn.

The Distillery District Revisited

I always find it interesting when I get this feeling of new found discovery in my own city. You know that feeling of amazement you initially feel as you stumble upon a new street, a new neighbourhood or just a new view for the first time in a foreign place? Well, sometimes I get that feeling just 20 km away … Continue reading The Distillery District Revisited

Bike Route Snapshots

This summer, I've plunged into the passion of cycling. I owe my biking interest to Amsterdam after visiting this charming city in 2011. While on my brief but very enjoyable stay there, I was flabbergasted by its dominant abundance of bicycles. Millions of bikes were parked everywhere, millions of cyclists in suits, heels, dresses and babies strapped to … Continue reading Bike Route Snapshots
