April 1, 2016,

“I think this is what heaven will be like!” This is what I told my daughters as we passed under the gates into Universal Studios in Orlando. The attendants were joyful and they looked at us as if they were waiting just for us… I felt welcomed. And the emotions did not stop. Every detail […]

Everything You Need to Do at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

March 28, 2016,

My recent visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter was just like – for lack of a better word – magic. From Diagon Alley to King’s Cross Station in London, to the Hogwarts Express at Platform 9 ¾, to Hogsmeade and Hogwarts Castle… I felt as if I was inside the books and movies. Whether you’re a (super)fan […]

Impressions of Sedona

January 13, 2016,

In May 2015 I attended my brother’s wedding in Phoenix, Arizona. I was expecting to simply attend the wedding, be with family, have a couple of days of R&R by the pool surrounded by cactus and fragrant rosemary hedges.

When you think California what comes to mind? It’s likely you’ll think of sunshine, celebrities and Hollywood, beaches and surfing – and for some of us, we can’t think of California and not sing the theme song to The OC (I’m not alone on this, right?). California is also overflowing with healthy restaurants and cafés, and […]

Why You Need to Road Trip to Vermont

August 17, 2015,

Vermont is known as the Green Mountain State: it is full of mountains and greenery, scenic waterfalls and state parks and for those who haven’t heard of the state’s biggest treasure (according to me and my fellow foodie friends) – it is also full of green, organic and healthy restaurants. For me, a Montrealer, Vermont […]
