Autumn in Algonquin

I had never felt so rich. Surrounded by unlimited gold while walking on grounds of red rubies, sprinkled with fiery ambers. The colours of fall are a breathtaking sight. One of the many things I love about Canada is that every season offers an exclusive landscape.  On a spontaneous trip up north in September of…

Exploring Killbear

My adoration for the outdoors was the driving force behind embarking on a camping adventure at Killbear Provincial Park. As a nature-lover, camping and exploring Canada’s National Parks is a welcome antidote during the pandemic.

A week in Dominican

That was the summer I embarked on an unforgettable  adventure with a group of friends to the beautiful Dominican Republic. Checking in at Viva Wyndham…
