10 Advantages of a Seasonal Camping Site

I didn’t post over the weekend as we were camping at our seasonal site at Echo Valley Provincial Park. We’ve had our camper for three years (two full summers since we bought it in August of our first year) but so far, we’ve only done quick hit trips – a week here, a weekend there. Shea’s folks […]

Canada Gains Library Talent From Trump’s America

I did a post a while back about the debate many Canadians are having about whether to travel to Trump’s America or not. The reverse is true too – in libraries and other sectors, Americans are looking to move to Canada to raise their families and live in a more fair, equitable and understanding society. […]

Saturday Snap – #saveSKLibraries Panel at #saskLA2017 Conference

It was a fairly last minute decision but after debating back and forth for the past couple months, after library funding was restored, I decided to apply to attend the Sask Library Association conference in Waskesiu. (I know the conference location was probably picked 18-24 months ago but the optics of having a conference at a […]

15 of the Coolest Libraries in Canada

Okay, I’ll probably start transitioning away from every single post being tagged #saveSKLibraries and #skpoli now that the funding for Saskatchewan public libraries has returned. But that doesn’t mean that I won’t stop writing about and linking to articles about libraries. 😉

When Donald Trump Is The President, Should Canadians Travel To the United States?

I’ve seen a few debates on social media sites as well as some media articles about whether Canadians and other non-Americans should “boycott” the United States with our business and/or personal travel? Those who say we shouldn’t boycott, say that it will hurt ordinary Americans.  Or the non-Trump supporters need us more than ever.  Or […]

Walking Tours on YouTube

Shea recently told me a great tip – YouTube has numerous walking/running tours that you can put on your TV while using your treadmill. What a great way to make time on the treadmill more interesting!

My Trip Advisor Review of @SandosCaracol #allinclusive Eco Resort (with bonus pictures)

It’s still pending approval on Trip Advisor but I thought I might as well post my review of Sandos Caracol Eco-Resort, the all-inclusive we just stayed at here as well (with bonus photos, external links, and a few other edits/additions)… [Edit: This might not end up being my Trip Advisor review after all.  I got […]

Off To Mexico!

Likely minimal posts for the next week…

10 Unique All-Inclusive Ideas

As I mentioned in a recent post, as fun as they are, most all-inclusives basically feature the same type of amenities at their core – a handful of buffet and a la carte restaurants, pools and beaches, bars and night clubs, poolside games and nighttime shows. That made me think about what some resorts have […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Bull Fight (February 2000)

The other day I wrote about some memories of our first all-inclusive vacation to Mazatlan Mexico in 2000. One thing I didn’t mention but which is a strong memory was our decision to see a bullfight. I’m not sure what I expected but I was surprised by a lot of it – not just that […]
