A series of posts focusing on specific places, events, businesses or activities that struck a cord with me or made me want to research more.

Wolfville Farmer’s Market

The Wolfville’s Farmer’s Market is a great spot for local food, crafts, artists and even authors.  Not to mention the live music and local breweries, wineries and distilleries.  Visit the market to pick up your produce and meat (much of it organic; all of it local), chat with local entrepreneurs and artists, or just have […]

Eagle Watch 2012

After years of trying to get there, I finally went to check out the Eagle Watch today.  Eagles are prevalent in the area at this time of year and for two weekends during their peak time the community of Sheffield Mills organizes a festival of sorts.  They put out food in the mornings to lure the eagles […]

Wanderings: The Forks, Winnipeg

I lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba for about two and a half years  around the end of High School.  It was not my favourite place on the planet, for sure.  Despite this, there were parts of the city that I loved.  Assiniboine Park, the Manitoba Museum of Man and Nature (as it was called then) and […]

Wanderings: Wieskirche

The beautiful rococo church “Wieskirch” (White Church) is nestled in the Bavarian Alps of Germany.  I visited the church while on a weekend tour of the area back in the summer of 2000.  It was a semi-unplanned stop, if I recall; one of those ‘we’re ahead of schedule, why don’t we go visit this nice […]

Wanderings: Local Coffee Shops

A little preface to this post – I don’t actually like coffee.  (gasp and horror, I know!) Luckily, coffee shops generally sells other yummy, hot drinks as well. So whether you enjoy coffee, those funkily named drinks, tea, hot chocolate or even pop (depending on your coffee shop of choice), take an hour or and […]

Wanderings: Weinachtsmarkts

While living in Germany, we did a lot of travelling, both near and far.  Some weekend, we would just visit local markets.  Those were always a blast in their own right, but nothing could beat the weinachtsmarkts – Christmas markets - of November and December.  As these were specifically Christmas markets, there was even more to see than at […]

Wanderings: Thanksgiving Chapel, Dallas

It’s almost exactly a year since I went to Dallas, Texas for Fan Days III.  I booked a couple of extra days to explore the city and really enjoyed the tour of the city that I created for myself. One of my favourite stops on this tour was the Thanksgiving Chapel - and not only because I […]

Wanderings: County Fairs

When I was younger, we lived in Alberta.  I’m sure we had county fairs, or exhibitions, or whatever they would have been called, but we never went.  Maybe it was too far away, maybe it cost too much, maybe it wasn’t publicized enough and we never knew about it.  May we just weren’t interested. It […]

Wanderings: The Ovens

One day last month we decided to go on a day trip.  Being a fairly hot weekend, I said we should only go if we go somewhere along the coast.  There’s no way we would enjoy ourselves in the heat if we spent the day outside inland and there was really no point going if […]

Wanderings: Monschau, Germany

While we were living in Germany, we took every opportunity to travel, exploring our area and the rest of Europe.  We spent so much time exploring new places that we didn’t have a lot of time to revisit areas that we really enjoyed.  When we did, one of our favourite places to go was Monschau, […]
