Welcome to a 200-mile stretch of Pacific Coastline in Mexico that is full of authentic beach towns, all-inclusive resorts, and is still relatively off the well-traveled Mexican circuit. This strip of paradise from Punta de Mita to San Blas is the perfect vacation destination with hot sun, wonderful beaches, a storied history, great culture, incredible cuisine, nature and local wines and fantastic local Tequila!   (More)


At the Wajima morning market, you quickly discover that most of the vendors enjoy engaging locals and visitors alike in friendly banter. Many asked where we called home (Toronto) and then related their own trips to Niagara Falls! One woman saw me aiming my camera at her display of squid and fish, hanging out to dry. Just as I was about to click the shutter, she quickly parted the ‘curtain’ of squid, greeted me with a smiling “Ohayo Gozaimasu” (Good morning) and really seemed to enjoy my surprised look. We both laughed at the impromptu game of peek-a-boo.    (More)


The trip started with flying into the biggest city in Guangdong province – the sprawling port city of Guangzhou northwest of Hong Kong on the Pearl River. The trip ahead would have us lost in an exotic world of flavours and smells that overwhelm the senses!    (More)

As first-time cruisers, we were delighted that our stay on Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam surpassed all of our expectations. Our ocean-view stateroom had a wonderful big bed, lots of storage space and a large window overlooking the sea. My boyfriend and I loved the huge selection of food and the variety of dining options – including great vegetarian meals as well as tasty meat and fish.    (More)


There’s no squabbling. Not once do I hear, ‘It’s not fair!’ You’d be forgiven for thinking I’m on a kid-free vacation, but I’m with my 9-year-old daughter, Danielle. Just her. Without her brother and Dad, it’s an entirely different dynamic, and a chance to connect without the competition of sibling rivalry.  (More)

Towering above the newly vibrant metropolis at 66 floors high, Hard Rock Hotel Panama Megapolis is a perfect roost from which to sample the very best this city has to offer. My 44th floor “Rock Star Gold Suite” afforded insane views of the Pacific Ocean and stunning skyscapes on either side from a massive balcony. The suite itself was also massive- two living areas, a large dining room, two bathrooms, a kitchenette and an inviting bedroom- far too large for one person.    (More)


Five hotels, five styles for enjoying Puerto Vallarta, full of fun, food and tropical nature.     (More)


T hough I had been to other parts of the Dominican Republic I was anxious to explore more regions, and La Romana was the most recent. I had no idea what to expect really, and when we arrived at Casa de Campo Resort, I was blown away by the sheer massiveness of its sprawling community. Located on 7,000 acres, with a vast assortment of accommodation options and activities, it’s best known for its sports offerings- golf- shooting- equestrian pastimes and tennis among them, but there is so much more to it than that. But first, let’s look at its most famous pursuits.     (More)


When Canadians think of a US beach destination, Alabama doesn’t immediately spring to mind. Yet here I am on the state’s southernmost point looking out at the whitest sands imaginable. Sugar white they call it, and it’s actually finely ground quartz formed from rocks from the Appalachian Mountains that have travelled over 1000 kilometers down the Apalachicola and Chattahoochee rivers. It now lies before my eyes, shimmering in the bright sun and caressed by the Gulf of Mexico waters.    (More)


In the pre-dawn chill of February we walk along the banks of the river Ganges. The eastern sky, swathed in a chiffon-like mist, is pale mauve, but the waters below our boat are dark and mysterious. The morning air smells of wood smoke, cow dung, spices and marigold flowers. Just beyond the ghat steps, a blind beggar sings plaintively.   (More)


In the annals of African history, no one has left more of an imprint on the outside world than Mansa Kankan Musa, ruler of Mali from 1312-37 A.D. Also known as Gongo Musa, he became one of the most powerful leaders of his time and was to make Mali's name renowned throughout the European and Islamic countries. Beginning in the 14th century, his name and that of Mali were to become synonymous with opulence, learning and justice.     (More)


Flying into Tunis-Carthage, the colors of the desert collide with those of the oasis. Deep browns blend with yellow, gold, violet and orange. It is like landing into a biblical epic. At first, Tunis appears to be a clean, organized and quiet city. As Tunisia was a French colony until 1956, there is a dash of the west within the North African feel of the city     (More)

Coming from a land without them, flying over the mouth of Maui’s volcano is an impressive sight! Maui is a wonderfully green gem in the Hawaiian islands and is renowned for its beaches and central “potentially hazardous” volcano!    (More)
