Vancouver to New York 2

May 31st, 2010 @ 7:29am by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’ve been to New York twice before but each time has been for no longer than 3 days. Months ago I booked a trip with Keira who has been planning her visit to the Big Apple since I met her, and even long before that. She had studied the MTA subway maps, memorized streets and […]

Vancouver to New York

May 25th, 2010 @ 6:20pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’m in New York this week to hang out, explore, work, wander, and do a whole lot of walking. Since Keira and I are already half-way through our journey, I thought it was time for a photo post so that I can share some of our adventures so far. Brunch in the West Village Carrie’s […]

Humboldt House B&B in Victoria

May 17th, 2010 @ 4:10pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

This past weekend John and I were put up in Humboldt House B&B in Victoria. It was my first-ever Bed & Breakfast experience and it certainly set the bar rather high for any future B&B stays. We crossed over to the Island on last ferry but were able to call ahead and make arrangements for […]

Craigdarroch Castle, legacy of the Dunsmuir family, has been perched overlooking Victoria since the turn of the 20th century. Nowadays its red spires are barely visible over the stretching Garry Oaks but it’s definitely a main attraction on many tours and personal trips to the capital city. History The Dunsmuirs are pillars of BC’s industrial […]

Flight Centre Canada is hosting a search to find someone for what they call the Best Travel Job Ever. Ever since Tourism Queensland in Australia hosted its popular search to find someone to fulfill their “Best Job Ever” as caretaker of an Island Reef it’s become a trend to host contests of this nature.

Ben & Jerry’s Bloggerpalooza

April 18th, 2010 @ 11:48am by Rebecca Bollwitt

A few weeks ago I was flown out to Burlington, Vermont to experience how a globally-recognized all natural ice cream company runs their business. It was called the Ben & Jerry’s “blogger bash” or “bloggerpalooza” as I joined about a dozen others from online publications around North America in this adventure.

The last stop on our Sunshine Coast weekend adventure was in Sechelt. View Larger Map We had lunch at the Lighthouse Pub then walked over to WestCoast Air for a scenic flight of the peninsula. It was really neat to fly right over the parts of the area we explored by boat just the day […]
