Pretty in Pink | Merida, Mexico

If there is a pink wall I will find it. So when an entirely pink hotel pops up in my Mexican trip planning search, I was sold. The Rosas & Xocolate Hotel in Merida, Mexico was enough of a destination to turn my originally-planned all-beach vacation into a road trip just to make a pitstop at…

The Top of the Rock NYC

Although I had been up to the Top of the Rock in NYC before, it never disappoints. The 360 degree view over Manhatten is unbeatable, especially with the Chrysler building front and centre. This time around, I pre-purchased tickets for the opening time slot in an effort to beat the crowds, and we had a…

But that is part of what makes it so wonderful, isn’t it? The constant commotion, the energy, the sheer chaos. It’s definitely a place that warrants…

Instagram Guide to Montreal: Top 10 Photo Ops

Relative to its other Canadian city counterparts, Montreal is an Instagram gold mine. Around almost every corner there is an interesting building to photograph, always another beautiful meal to eat (and take a snap of before doing so!), as well as plenty of magical moments to capture. There are some things that Montreal just does…

Why We Don’t Need to Go Back to Europe

After having lived abroad for 3 years in Europe, we made the decision to moved back to our Canadian home city, where we’ve remained for the past 8 months. And to be honest, that decision was regretted every single day since for the first half a year of our return. It’s only recently started to…
