Winter in Kingston usually means six months of darkness, -25C and lots of hibernating over Netflix and big glasses of wine. Fabulous Kingstonians usually migrate towards the slopes in Quebec where they complain about the French and the food. Me, I can't ski and don't r...

We've toyed with the idea of visiting Copenhagen ever since my sister came back and couldn't stop raving about it. Let me just tell you, she's one of those people that the hashtag #unimpressed was created for, so I thought this place must be out of this world. I'll be...

After a five hour bumpy ride, we started to spot Sao Miguel through the steamy clouds hovering over the Atlantic. It was looking green and defying out there in the stormy waters of the unforgiving ocean. We landed on a cloudy morning, jet lagged, a little bit tipsy fro...
