When we had reached our max in terms of alcohol, gambling, and strip shenanigans, the girls and I decided to rent a sexy car and hit the wide open road.

Those with a sweet tooth won't have any difficulty finding delicious springtime treats in New Brunswick.
The province's forests yield more than 1.8 million kilograms of maple syrup each year, much to the delighted taste buds of locals, visitors, and those living in the global markets to which a lot of the product is exported.
There are many…Continue

Growing up in rural, northern New Brunswick, I was so busy planning my escape to a bigger, more exciting location that I didn't fully appreciate the great qualities of the place I called home.
I live in the "big city" of Fredericton now, where I deal with the mild irritations of traffic and crowds at Costco. While Fredericton is generally a lovely place to live, my travel addiction prompts me to take frequent getaways to places near and…

During a visit to Isla Mujeres it is worthwhile to rent a golf cart or bicycle to tour the island. At a mere 650 m wide and 7 km long, this is easily achieved in a day, and at a leisurely pace.

While throngs of travelers go to Mexico to feast upon the buffet fare of all-inclusive resorts, for the past two years I've opted for the a la carte culinary delights of Isla Mujeres.
Isla is a very relaxed, laid-back kind of place and the food matches the island's personality. The best dishes I've had there have been prepared quite simply, and highlight fresh, local ingredients.…

There are many reasons why visitors to Isla Mujeres might fall in love with the island. Its small town charm, friendliness, natural beauty, and the opportunity to experience the pulse of a real community and its people. But there is a single hook that catches people first - the beach.

As the sun rises over my fourth day on Isla Mujeres, I think it's about time to assemble and share some thoughts on this beautiful tropical paradise.
My writing perch is the rooftop patio at Hotel Las Palmas. It's only 7 am, but I've been up and feeling wonderful for close to 2…

EPCOT is an acronym for "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow", a conceptual Utopian city of tomorrow that Walt Disney wanted to build on his Florida property. Disney envisioned that the community would have 20,000 residents and become a test bed for city planning and organization.
Although Disney passed away before his dream could be realized, the park today aims to capture the essence of his creative vision by celebrating human achievement, in particular…Continue

With an early closing time of 6 pm, getting up bright and early is key to making the most of a wild day at Animal Kingdom.
As Disney hotel guests we were able to take advantage of morning Extra Magic Hours to access the park an hour before the general public. That meant a 6:45 am wake-up call, and on the bus around 7:30 to make it to the park for 8 am.
Over 500 acres in size, Animal Kingdom is the…

Many of the reviews I read pre-trip suggested that Hollywood Studios was the least impressive of the Disney parks and could therefore be tackled in a half day, or sacrified altogether if short on time. I'm glad we didn't follow that advice, as we found that Hollywood Studios offered more than enough to keep us occupied for a full day, including evening Extra Magic Hours - minus a break…Continue

pay a lot of attention to food when I travel. Considering it, eating it, photographing it, and ultimately judging it.
While one wouldn't expect Disney World to be a really exciting culinary adventure, the free dining plan included in our vacation package (a special offer only available only on select travel dates) provided us…
