Are you scared of the prospect of spending the night in “the great outdoors?” It can be a scary place full of unknown factors, moderate isolation, and just a thin tent between you and the world. The lack of electricity or immediate technology can seem hard to wrap one’s head around. And yet, maybe because your significant other or friend urges you to give it a try, you’re willing to. But, if you’re terrified of camping, I hope you’ll give it a try after you read this post.
Ah, the open road! For me, it doesn’t feel like summer unless there’s at least one road-trip planned! There are so many reasons why you might want to plan a
Or: Why you’re going to fall head over heels in love with Vancouver.
My brother calls us “laid-back west-coasters.” Everyone tells it’s beautiful here, when I say I’m from Vancouver. I always see news articles and broadcasts about how expensive it is to live here. All these things are true about Vancouver.
“What is it again that you love so much about [Vancouver]?” and they answer, “We have everything. The mountains and the water.” This is their explanation, mountains and water.Maria Semple – Where’d you go Bernadette (Vancouver substituted for Seattle)
The Cafe du Presbytere in the borough of Chicoutimi, Québec was an unexpected delight!
Who knew you could get such delicious vegan/vegetarian friendly food in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region in Québec? I didn’t! Actually, I purchased quite a lot of snacks for this leg of my Québec trip before I left home, because I thought I’d be out of luck in terms of food options!
Not only did the Tourisme Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean team make sure there were vegan options for me (and vegetarian options for another blogger), they took the whole press tour group to some amazing places to eat. I feel like we really experienced this region’s cuisine.
One of the clear highlights of my trip through the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region was a lunchtime stop at the Cafe du Presbytere in the borough of Chicoutimi, Québec.
This café takes pride in serving its own version of well-known dishes made from local products and ingredients found by its chef in the woods of the Saguenay region. In a warm and friendly ambiance, you’ll enjoy delicious cuisine while encouraging your hosts’ mission of socio-professional integration. – Québec Original website
Camping is a great way to connect with nature. And a great way to escape from the noise, hustle, and bustle of the city.
I was introduced to the fun of sleeping under the stars and enjoying nature for more than just a day at a time, late in life. Like with many other things, my best friend Greg got me hooked on hiking and camping; my life has never been the same since.
Living here in Vancouver, I feel as though there are two types of people—the super-adventure-y ones who go camping, on long hikes, and who regularly enjoy other outdoor activities each weekend. And then there are those that don’t like going outside very often. Where do I fit in? Well, I love being outside, but I don’t like extreme sports. I’d go camping and hiking more often if I knew people who enjoyed doing so.
