  • Fall fun in Kamloops

    I’ve been to a fair number of small-ish towns and cities in British Columbia (a few favourites are Invermere, Cranbrook and really just anywhere in the Columbia Valley).

  • Top 5 Calgary Day Trips

     What better way to see your region with fresh eyes than to give out-of-towners a tour around it? When my cousin Amber and her husband Adam brought 22-month-old Alexis to visit us in Calgary, I couldn’t wait to show them around. My friends at Chevrolet Canada hooked me up with a brand new 2014 Chevy […]
