Disclosure: Review — This is not a paid post. Views are my own. Hotel, spa, and zipline were compliments of the providers. We purchased all of our own meals and drinks. Please review the Policy & Disclosure section for further information.

The advantage of living in Vancouver, a beautifully vibrant city on its own, is that it’s so close to so many fantastic getaway options. A weekend in the Fraser Valley, on Vancouver Island, across the border, or up the Sea to Sky is rarely out of the question in any season. For that reason, I […]

Ending a busy work week with sparkling wine, a view of twinkling city lights, and a multi-course meal at a three-star Michelin chef’s restaurant sounds like a dream but it was a much-enjoyed reality a few weeks ago when John and I spent the night at the Shangri-La Hotel Vancouver. Always up for a quick […]

“We should do this when your parents visit,” is a phrase that I’ve said to John for the last six years, which is the amount of time it’s been since his mother and father traveled to Vancouver from Iowa.

It may seem like a simple task to book a romantic evening for two professional thirty-somethings in the city who have no pets and no kids but John and I often find our “date nights” are few and far between. A busy day job, a company to run, client projects and commitments make us some […]

On top of the festival, we toured MauiGrown Coffee, had a beer pairing lunch with Maui Brewing, and even managed to fit in a volcano sunrise. […]
