Parc du Mont-Royal (Mount Royal Park) – Montreal, Québec

After a fantastic meal at Schwartz’s (link to review), we continued our trek on foot to the corner of Avenue des Pins and Rue Peel (link to specific address, I suggest opening on your phone when you’re ready to go) to take a hike up Mont Royal and check out the park and view of the city.

All in all a pretty nice light walk on a beautiful day.

The steps were daunting, but not even a tenth of what we climbed to see a temple in Thailand–now that was grueling. At the top of the 200 hectare (appx 495 acres) park is a huge chalet–Chalet du Mont-Royal–with a nice, large viewing area that overlooks downtown [...]

A weekend trip to hit the ski slopes now that they’ve all been coated with feet and feet of fresh powder! Here are the ski slopes that were best affected by the winter weather:

West Virginia fared exceptionally well in this lineup (that’s the first–and last– time I’ll ever say that WV fared well at something). Take a look at the map, at least 3 resorts are less than a [...]

Paris in the Snow!

On our recent trip to Paris, we were so lucky to experience the bizarre snow storm that hit Paris March 12-13, 2013. Although it shut down the airports, canceling hundreds of flights and disrupted all other train and car travel, it was a very scenic time for those of us in the city with no where to go.

Oh yeah, and we GOT ENGAGED!
