    Travel: Cairns Snapshot

    Cairns snapshot – what a beautiful city serving as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef! We landed in Cairns (via Vancouver and Brisbane) on Sunday and spent three peaceful nights, and four days exploring. Let’s check out a few highlights!! Cairns Snapshot First up, we got settled in our apartment, fully equipped with a stove, oven, and all the necessary kitchen tools. We had some delicious meals out in the city, yet some simple breakfasts at home – plus, snacks! On our first full…

  • Durham Museum - a must see if you're in Omaha!

    Travel: Durham Museum

    Durham Museum – it’s an old train station, one utilized by Union Pacific Railway, that’s been turned into a museum. It’s a must see if you’re in Omaha. The historical architecture is beautiful. Okay, let’s check out some photos. Durham Museum Nothing better than snagging a quick pic of the entry and having my amazing husband strike a pose. I love this guy! Side note here, one mistake we made while travelling around Omaha was not bringing my backpack. When we visited the Old Market…

  • Bob's Bridge - the great joining of Nebraska and Iowa!

    Travel: Bob’s Bridge

    Bob’s bridge joins Nebraska and Iowa and spans across the Missouri River for a total of 0.9 kilometres. Visit at night when it’s cool and the lights reflect off the water. Okay, photo time! Bob’s Bridge Check out this welcome sign – there are a few on the bridge – and you better bet I got stickers! The bridge is beautiful at night, and it’s not as busy, either. The Nebraska side has a lot of seating, where as the Iowa side has a lot…

  • Kenefick Park, home of two of the greatest locomotives ever to power Union Pacific Railroad.

    Travel: Kenefick Park

    Kenefick Park is home to the greatest locomotives to power the Union Pacific Railroad, and it’s right beside the Lauritzen Gardens and the Marjorie K Daugherty Conservatory. These trains are massive, let’s climb the stairs and check these beasts out. We almost didn’t visit the park, the stairs (there’s a lot of them) looked daunting after a long morning in the sun and I’ll admit, we were hungry. Knowing we probably wouldn’t be visiting Omaha again, we hustled up the stairs and were pleasantly surprised.…

    Travel: Mexico City Grand Prix Snapshot

    Mexico City Grand Prix snapshot – home of the 20th round on the 2022 Formula One World Championship schedule. Yes, Max Verstappen is already the world champion, yet that doesn’t change how epic these first couple of days have been. The Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez motorsport race track is fast (and I thought UTVing was fast!), yet what we love about the track is the atmosphere. Watching a race at home (usually while we eat breakfast on the weekends) is thrilling, yet live, with the speedy-hum…

  • Marjorie K. Daugherty Conservatory, a top Omaha attraction!

    Travel: Marjorie K Daugherty Conservatory

    Marjorie K Daugherty Conservatory is one of Omaha’s top attractions. It’s full of so many beautiful plants and a cozy cafe. Plus, it just flat out smells awesome. Okay, let’s check out some photos. One of my favourite things about visiting conservatories (we have an awesome one in Edmonton!) is seeing the grown up version of the plants we have at home. An elephant’s foot is a great example – we have 3 and they’re oh, so tiny. Marjorie K Daugherty Conservatory Photo time! This…
