Even the black diamond runs are green this season on the local mountains as a lack of snow has left the chair lifts motionless and lodge doors closed. Fortunately, I did get a taste of winter earlier this season when I was whisked away to the Okanagan to experience three stunning resorts and discover what […]

Spa at the Four Seasons Seattle: My Oxygen Facial

February 25th, 2015 @ 10:14am by Michelle Kim

After our heavily caffeinated drive from Vancouver to Seattle, and after quickly taking in our room’s stunning 10th floor ocean-front view as the light change across the Pacific Northwest sky, Rebecca and I were quickly whisked downstairs to the hotel spa for some much needed rest and relaxation. A girls getaway isn’t complete and without […]

February 23rd, 2015 @ 1:41pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

I usually plan a weekend getaway leading up to our wedding anniversary and for #9 this year, I looked east to the Fraser Valley.

John and I recently had the opportunity to get away, thanks to Rogers Communications, and the Palm Desert was calling our name. Resort spas, cocktails, brunch, and shopping were all on our list of things to enjoy but at the very top was a nature walk (or two). The first was Joshua Tree and the […]

Portland Japanese Gardens Photowalk

September 22nd, 2014 @ 10:12am by Rebecca Bollwitt

During our was our first visit to Portland I searched online to find the best viewpoints in the Rose City. Not knowing the lay of the land aside from what we’ve seen on 2D Google Maps, John and I like to get above our destination to get a feel for its geography. I found Five […]

Comox Glacier Tour with Harbour Air

July 15th, 2014 @ 10:44am by Rebecca Bollwitt

There’s the feeling of adventure you get while taking a floatplane flight. Skipping along the water before taking off and flying just high enough to top the Lions Gate Bridge or the tallest timber in Stanley Park. Waching the pilot’s careful movements, taking photos of a propeller spins so quickly it’s nearly impossible for the […]
