My home continent. I have been to most Canadian provinces and over a dozen states.
One concern I always have when planning a trip to a new city is getting around without a vehicle since I usually fly but don’t rent a car. Montreal is a city that is highly walkable and has great public transit, so I’m going to show you just how easy it can be to get around Montreal without a car.
One of the trickiest things when planning a first visit to any new city is deciding where to stay, and Montreal is no different.

But don’t worry, I’m here to help!
I hadn’t done much hiking this summer and so I knew the 8.6km of the Alexander Murray Hiking Trail in King’s Point was going to be a bit of a challenge but what had me shaking in my hiking boots was the 2200 stairs and the 1200’ of elevation change. Yep, you heard right, two thousand, two hundred stairs.

Glamping is right up my alley as someone who loves her creature comforts and so I wanted to help you plan an amazing glamping vacation in my backyard of Newfoundland.

If you only have limited time in Newfoundland but still want to experience as much as you can, then head to Twillingate.
