Land of Soca

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, […]

Do Not Enter

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 […]

Feels Like Africa

Many trips to Florida and I finally went to Busch Gardens Tampa! Not many people know about this team park as it gets overshadowed by Universal Studios and Disney World. I for one did not know about it until my cousins ended up living in Florida, and told me. Over the years, they have always […]

Seeing Familiar Faces

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 […]

Any Complimentary Upgrades?

Weekend trip to Las Vegas with the boys, so we had to do it up! Staying at Caesar’s Palace, we already knew we had a great hotel, but one thing that would make it better… room upgrade! Leading up to our trip I was looking into the best hotels on the strip to stay in, […]

What An Experience!

From Toronto to Dubai, my first trip overseas was to the United Arab Emirates. I no longer consider this vacation a trip, as it was much more an experience. From the moment I landed, it hit me that, here I was, in a foreign land. Throughout my years, I have only traveled with my family […]
