So here we are in China. The ancient lands of many firsts. First to develop gunpowder, first to develop medicine, first to develop paper - and our first time here. The far east is a magical place of many charms and very polite people. Just down the street from our hote...

 Ok... this whole experience with flights for our Asia tour has been not without a bit of drama. 

It all started back in Vancouver. Apparently when your flight is Aug. 30th at 2am - this means you should be at the airport on the 29th ---- and arriving on the 30th w...

Faro, Portugal is a quaint little city that sits on the southern tip of Portugal. 

We took a train from Malaga, Spain to Seville Spain, then a train to Huelva Spain, then a bus ride to Faro Portugal...phew! bit of a trek but it allowed us to take in the countryside whic...

Ok, forget the wine tasting and opt for an award winning chocolate tasting at the Hazel Mountain Chocolate Factory. This boutique chocolate shop and factory is located in the Burren mountains of county Clare, a 35 minute drive from their retail outlet in Galway. We had...

We cannot fail to mention our stay at the Cuan Inn in the quaint village of Strangford, Northern Ireland.

There is a reason there are so many plaques on the wall. This little gem has been visited by many celebrities over the years and we were graced with the "Arya Stark...

Coming to Ireland may conjure up images of cozy pubs, rolling green hills, dramatic ocean cliffs, Irish dancers and delicious comfort food! Oh did I forget a wee pint of Guinness. We found a perfect place for some cold weather yumminess... "The Pie Maker" in the heart...

Before we found ourselves walking over the Giant's Causeway, we dropping in on the famous Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge near Ballintoy in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. The bridge links the mainland to the tiny island of Carrickarede. It spans 20 metres and is 30 metres...
