Frankie, this one is for you. Alright, I’m back. I hope everyone had a wonderful time ringing in the New Year! Matt & I spent the night celebrating with the team here in Renfrew (Glasgow) belting out some karaoke and sharing … Continue reading
It’s been quite a while since I updated the blog, and last seasons updates were pretty few and far-between. A lot has happened since March (I’ll get to that at some point), but after another wonderful summer in BC, Matt … Continue reading
Okay so I’ve been pretty neglectful of the blog. My bad. I still need to blog about our trip to Budapest in November (it rivals Paris), Christmas in Salzburg (one of the most amazing experiences, ever), my trip to Hallstatt … Continue reading
Okay I’m definitely W A Y behind on the updates. I’ve been meaning to blog about our rad trip last month to Budapest and Christmas season in Salzy. I will get on that this weekend, but until then, I leave you … Continue reading
I had an absolute blast exploring London! I definitely left a tiny piece of my heart in South Bank, and can’t wait to return o n e d a y . I had yet another great experience using Air BnB. Our hosts were fantastic and the flat was so cozy & charming, right in the heart of Waterloo! All & all it was such a great experience to see & do things that I have only ever imagined, and I’m so thankful to my husband for the wonderful birthday gift! These are memories that I will forever cherish!
I hope all our Canadian friends had a great Thanksgiving at home & all around the globe!
I have a girls trip to London on Monday that involves a lot of sight-seeing, museum hopping, stuffing my face full of french fries, high tea at Harrods, and of course, some shopping.

Located only a quick 35 minutes away from Salzburg in neighbouring Germany, Kehlsteinhaus [known in English as ‘Eagles Nest’] is a structure that was completed in 1938, and nestled on top of Kehlstein mountain [6,017 ft]. The structure itself was actually a 50th birthday gift to Adolf Hilter from Martin Borrman, and was meant to be a retreat for Hitler to entertain visiting diplomatic guests.
We had been waiting for a crystal clear day to head up before it closes [open from mid-May-October], and today was perfect. Free parking and only 12.90€ per person admission [includes bus ride to the top]. The lift from the bus drop was out of service, so we had a 30 minute trek up to the top of Kehlstein [124m from bus drop].
Two thumbs up for the entire experience!
Since Matt was given today off, we hit the road with the pups early in the morning and headed to Lake Bled, Slovenia. It’s a quick 2.5 hours from Salzburg [note: 33€ return trip for tolls for those coming from Salzburg ], and one of the most beautiful hidden gems in Europe.
We checked out Bled castle [8€ per person admission & free parking], wandered around the lake front, and finished the day off with lunch at a Steakhouse right on the water. Two thumbs way up for Bled!

And with lots of updates. But before I update, I should probably pack for the next 8 months. We are heading overseas tomorrow for another hockey season and couldn’t be more excited for this new chapter.
Check back soon- I’ll be blogging once we are settled in.
