While Visiting Victoria

Last weekend we made a quick trip over to Vancouver Island.  It’s been about three years…far too long! Back in the day, before we really got the travel bug and when we still had a mortgage to pay off, we used to go over quite often.  Vancouver Island is very beautiful and if you get […]

A Treat!

A couple of days ago we were fortunate enough to attend a special “Rose Dinner” at Burdock and Co. here in Vancouver.  Sorry about the lack of photos…a bit too dark!  But click on the link below to get your mouth watering! Highly recommended!  Two wine importers/makers were in attendance walking us through tasting each […]

The Times They Are A Changing?

Our “hood” needs help getting some soul! Here’s my vision: I want one or two new restaurants to come and add some life to our neighbourhood.  We need it! It doesn’t have to be cutting edge!

So…we booked seats on the Amtrak […]

Kudos Or Not, London, Part 2

If you happen to be in East London or Canterbury check out the Crown & Deeson’s.  We liked them both a lot.  They both serve well cooked English food, using local ingredients. One sunny morning, we headed to Smithfield & Clerkenwell, to check things out. The area has been attracting a lot of designers & architects. It is […]

Kudos or Not, London, Part 1

We have never claimed to be restaurant critics! However, as the saying goes, we know what we like, so here are four restaurants/pubs that we would recommend if you are in London. We enjoyed two visits to the Harwood Arms. They‘re the only gastropub in London to have a Michelin star and are known for […]
