New York City 2017

I didn't always have warm and fuzzy feelings for NYC. The first few trips to the Big Apple left me overwhelmed from the hustle and bustle, the foreign smells and getting lost more than ending up where I wanted to be.

But over the years it has become one of my favourite cities to visit — a short plane ride from Toronto to an even bigger melting pot of delicious food, drinks and diverse culture. Although you'll find all kinds of people from different ethnicities, New York and being a New Yorker, is a culture in itself. 

I went with my lovely lady this time around and we were greeted by some beautiful un-February-like weather which made walking our main mode of transportation. Check out the photos below.

Adventures in Iceland: Golden Circle and the $25 Case of Water

Yes, Iceland is just as stunning as everyone hypes it up to be. Driving through its winding roads, it's hard not to be distracted by its peculiar landscape and and towering mountains. 

We just wrapped up Day One here — driving through the Golden Circle and making stops at a geothermal river in the Town of Hveragerdi (6-kilometre uphill hike through deafening winds), Geysir (kinda underwhelming) and Gulfoss (AMAZING). 

*Travel Tip: Buy your case of water at a real grocery store. We were in a jam this morning and purchased a case of water for $25 CDN at a gas station. I swear I had a heart attack when I saw the cashier ring it up.
