    Travel: Embassy Inn Review

    Staying in the harbour area of Victoria can be expensive, yet it’s worth it for the walk ability around the downtown area. There are so many parks, palaces to see, and delicious restaurants. The Embassy Inn offered a fair value and is a clean hotel. We paid 145$ per night, since I booked back in January and took advantage of the 35% off if I paid at the time of booking. Score! We got a room with two beds since we had all of our…

    Travel: Cluck n Cleaver

    Are you a foodie? We are, no doubt about it. We’ve driven an extra 700 miles to eat Lotus of Siam, travel to cities inspired by food (hello, Chicago!), and well, I run this lifestyle blog which is full of recipes and good eats.

    Travel: Birthday in Ho Chi Minh City

    Birthday in Ho Chi Minh City – where I turned one marvellous year older. Since I planned the hotels before hand, I knew where we’d be for my birthday in late April – Vietnam! This restaurant, Noir, has excellent reviews and a top chef. The trick? You eat in the dark! 100% blackness. The lady next to us had to remove her watch because the little hands glowed. You wouldn’t believe what your senses are like when you’re eating in the dark – you should…
