Thanks for visiting! I started this blog in 2009 to keep in touch with family and friends while I worked in Madagascar for four years. I was blessed to have amazing and life changing experiences, travel the world, and fall in love, in more ways than one. I followed my heart and ended back up in Quebec and am still trying to adapt to life here.
It all sounds crazy to me now, but I continue to write about day-to-day life, and how I sometimes struggle through life's challenges - big or small.
Minnesota was impressively awesome, somewhere I'd like to visit on purpose for like a real vacation. I'll post some pics soon of our bike tour!
We're now just outside of Chicago. There may have been a small hotel snafu....we can't remember why we booked this hotel. For now it seems like in the middle of nowhere, but we are sure that we booked it because it was in a cool neighbourhood or something....
Anyway, we're just about to leave to go on another tour. This time a walking & eating tour!
Savor the flavors of Chicago's Gold Coast and Old Town neighborhoods on this three-hour walking food tour. Between tastings at seven different locations, your guide will have you feeling like a local as you walk down the tree-lined streets and learn about the history, culture and architecture of the "Windy City." Your walk takes you to locations that include a Japanese restaurant, Polish bakery, famous Chicago-style pizzeria and more!
Sample tasting locations:
Lou Malnati's: Famous Chicago-style deep dish pizzeria
The Spice House: Hand-prepared spices and seasonings
Delightful Pastries: Authentic Polish-European bakery and pastry store
Old Town Oil: Aged balsamic vinegars and 100% extra virgin olive oils
Tea Gschwendner: Leading specialty tea merchant
The Fudge Pot: Chicago's oldest chocolate confectioner and fudge shop
Kamehachi Old Town: Chicago's first Japanese-style restaurant, sake cafe and sushi bar
Looking forward to learning more about the city!!!!
