Passion Island

I’ve been to Mexico a couple of times, however one of the most amazing spots I had the pleasure of visiting, was actually an excursion that I took with Carnival Cruise Lines. Isla de Pasion, also known as Passion Island, is located approximately 30-40 minutes from Cozumel by ferry. Just breathtaking. Where can you find a beach like this in Mexico? I had yet to see one, until we visited Passion Island. What we loved the most about this island is the exclusivity you felt while visiting. Miles of white sand, a pristine beach and the entire island to yourself […] Continue reading →

maya angelou

When I opened up my computer this morning and read that author, poet and all around extraordinary woman Maya Angelou passed away at the age of 86, my heart sunk. She was an incredible woman who has inspired me for years now. Her book “Letters to my Daughter” was one of my favourites. I use it as a reference book, reading it regularly. Her wise words are filled with truth. She was one of those people that made the world a better place. Her legacy will live on, inspiring generation upon generation thanks to the media clips and books we […] Continue reading →

This article is part of the momondo experience series where momondo challenged me to find the quirkiest place to visit in Ottawa. I’d say this is it. When most people come to Ottawa they plan on visiting the Parliament buildings, riding a double-decker bus or maybe even joining in on a yoga class on Parliament Hill. Ottawa is one of Canada’s crowning jewels and a fascinating city to visit. Loaded with history and fun things to do, you won’t regret making plans to visit. If you’re coming this far though and looking for something truly unique then you simply can’t […] Continue reading →
