    Travel Tuesday: New York City – Part 2

    I had two days of rain when I was in New York, so I will admit: I spent a lot of time wandering Central Park, just me and my umbrella. There’s nothing quite like a nice quiet stroll just taking in nature. Luckily for me, it was never torrential downpour. It was just enough rain to annoy most of the time, but not enough to completely deter me from being out and about. On Tuesday morning, I was thankful for a bit of a break in the rain, as I got up bright and early to make my way up to a taping of Live with Kelly and Ryan. As…

    Travel Tuesday: New York City – Part 1

    I love New York. I can't say enough good things about New York. I never used to think that I was such a city girl, because I'm not a huge fan of being downtown Toronto, but I think Manhattan just has this particular charm about it. You feel confined - in a good way - with the option of the boroughs. With a city like Toronto, I feel like you just don't know where to stop. With NYC, you can just go go go and not feel like you have to stop.

    Travel Thursday: The Over-Prepared Over-Packer.

    I over-pack. I over-prepare. I am the worry-wart. The one that double checks and triple checks. But still forgets something (like my ID the weekend of my BFFs bachelorette and LUCKILY someone was leaving after me and was able to go by my house and get it – because I was 2 hours away when I realised I didn’t have it!). For this trip, I’m really preparing, although I still have this fear I’m going to forget something. I’ve created lists. Yes, that is plural. I have two lists. I have my list of items for my carry on, and I have my list of items for my checked baggage. But…

    Port Hope, Sharks and Garlic Bread

    I just spent four days loving life. I'm not even kidding you. I'm not exaggerating, and I'm not trying to buff up my trip because it's possible my lovely hosts are reading (Hi Rose & John!). I'm a huge fan of mini vacations. Give me a few days in different cities and I'm happy. I've done mini trips to New York City, Washington DC, Montreal, Collingwood... I could go on. But these last four days have been spent in a city I've only seen from the highway: Port Hope, Ontario.
