Mexico City Travel Guide

Mexico, Photography, Travel

In March I visited Mexico for the first time to eat all the food and see all the art. I’m not a beach/resort person so we visited Mexico City. It was an amazing experience exploring this massive, crazy city. There are so many district areas/neighbourhoods to explore and in 5 days we saw so much of the city and ate so much amazing food.

On our way home from a weekend in northern Québec we detoured to historic Québec City for a couple hours to wander the old city. Suffice to say, 3 hours is not enough time and we’ll be back soon to see more of this beautiful place. Until then, there are some snapshots for around beautiful Vieux-Québec.

Memories of Venice

Italy, Personal, Photography, Travel

If you’ve seen my Ultimate Venice Travel Guide then you’ll know that I absolutely LOVE Venice! I’ve spent a fair but of time there and I’d go back in a heartbeat. My travel guide was very long with lots of info so I tried to keep the photos to a minimum. But I have so many that I want to share still so this is a little photo diary of my memories of Venice at sunrise and sunset, two of the most peaceful and beautiful times of day in the city.

Hanran Exhibition Review at the National Gallery of Canada

Art, Ottawa
“Hanran, a Japanese word meaning flood, overflow, or deluge.” These words reflect the period of immense change in Japan that occurred throughout the 62 year Shōwa Era (1926-89). The new exhibition, Hanran: 20th Century Japanese Photographyat the National Gallery of Canada, organized by the Yokohama Museum of Art, offers us a glimpse into that tumultuous time in Japanese society. 

Padua, Italy Mini Travel Guide

Italy, Travel

A city like Padua is one of the reasons why I love Italy so much. It’s beautiful and charming with some amazing artistic and cultural heritage for a relatively small city. I’ve visited twice, the first time just as a day trip and then overnight. Although I haven’t spent too much time exploring I have rounded up a list of some of the best things to do in Padua.

Snapshots from Burano

Burano is a small island in the Venetian Lagoon and one of the most colourful places in the world, it’s also one of my favourite places in the world. Historically Burano was a small fishing village and is known for it’s lace making.

Ultimate Venice Travel Guide

Italy, Photography, Travel

Venice holds a special place in my heart. In 2014, I had the opportunity to study for a month through a special art history program at Queen’s University. Then I returned in 2016 as an intern at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Now I’m sharing my ultimate guide to Venice because it’s not the easiest city to navigate, so get ready because it’s a long one!

Skating on the Rideau Canal

Ontario, Ottawa, Photography

Skating on the Rideau Canal is probably the best thing about winter in Ottawa. I mean where else can you skate on a historic UNESCO World Heritage Site canal through the centre of a city? Stretching 7.8km the Rideau Canal is the world’s largest naturally frozen skating rink and my favourite thing about winter here in Ottawa.
