After we were done visiting the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest in Japan, we decided to trek to the snow monkey sanctuary that we had heard of.
The Iwatayama Monkey Park is at the top of Mount Arashiyama. All of the blog posts/travel guides that I had read about this park stated that it was going to be a steep (15 minutes, but I’m whiny) climb. Joy. (more…)
I love waterfalls, so couldn’t pass up the chance to visit the second highest waterfall in Ontario during a visit to Thunder Bay. (more…)
It doesn’t get anymore East Coast than a lighthouse. I was thrilled to be able to stay at the West Point Lighthouse for once night on Prince Edward Island during my East Coast Road Trip! (more…)

In a small inn in Edmunston, New Brunswick, we had the best meal of our East Coast trip. We stayed overnight and had a very comfortable stay in their beautiful inn.
The Les Jardin Inn has a menu that features local meats, cheeses and seasonal foods, prepared with care, and is Acadian inspired. Our meal took place in a small private dining room, and started off with an amuse bouche of tiny sweet shrimp in a pesto sauce.
This summer, I upgraded my air mattress to the Coleman Durarest and headed out to Killbear Provincial Park (where we saw a bear. No biggie.) It was definitely time for a new air mattress, as I would regularly fall asleep on a nice high mattress, and wake up on a deflated mattress. (more…)
There’s so much to see and do in Ontario! Did you know that you can visit the southern most point in Canada for a weekend in Ontario? I went to Pelee Island this summer and had a blast! It’s about a 3.5 hour drive from Toronto, and then a 1.5 hour ferry ride. Here’s what I did while I was there!
