Touchdown in sweet sweet T&T! After 22 years, I have finally returned to Trinidad. Yes, it is known as Trinidad and Tobago, but that is with the inclusion of the smaller island of Tobago. From what I have heard, Tobago is where most tourists go, as it is where all the resorts are located. However, on this trip on mine, we spent the entire time … Continue reading Land of Soca
About an hour drive northeast from Toronto, in the small community of Bowmanville, lies an abandoned Canadian-run POW camp. A POW camp, for those that don’t know is a prisoner-of-war camp. This one in particular was used for German soldiers during World War II. In September of 2013, the camp was designated a “Natural Historic Site of Canada.” When the buildings were first built, they … Continue reading Do Not Enter

During our weekend in Vegas I was able to get a connection, … Continue reading Should Have Known
It’s definitely been a long time since I went to Universal Orlando – over 10 years! I often make trips to Florida as we have a house down here, and when we come, it’s always off to the parks. For me, personally, I always enjoy going to Disney World over Universal. That has nothing against Universal, but more so the fact that we could always … Continue reading Lights, Camera, Action!
As a huge fan of the Harry Potter (film) series, I am quite surprised it took me so long to make a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando. The reason I’m surprised is because I usually visit Florida once a year, if not, then at least every other year. Whenever I go, it’s always for a short amount of … Continue reading Finally Made It
Let’s go Raptors, let’s go!… Wait… wrong team! That’s right; it’s my first basketball game outside of Toronto. For a big basketball fan like me, I’m surprised I have never been to a game in another city. I have been to countless Toronto games, especially since I have season seats, but never have I been to a game in another arena than the Air Canada … Continue reading Seeing Familiar Faces
