Chudleighs Apple Picking Farm

Chudleighs Apple Picking Farm is in Milton, Ontario. On Thanksgiving Day last week, a family invited me for an apple picking in the outskirts of Toronto (30 minutes drive). But, when we arrived there, only the shop was open—the apple farm was fenced, a.k.a., closed for apple pickers. So, we

Niagara Falls White Water Walk

For $11, the half-mile walk along the raging waters of Niagara Falls that runs up north, is not worth it. No, I dont mean its not worth visiting. It is. Its just too damn expensive for such very short walk where you cant even swirl your fingers into the water

Cheltenham Badlands in Fall

Cheltenham Badlands is a badass soil. Its deprived of lush vegetation and formed into shiny, bald reddish rolling hills and in between narrow trenches that go down unto the rich soil satiated with lush foliage. A short scenic drive (be awed by the fall colours) from Toronto, the Badlands is

Algonquin Park Fall Colors

By this time, you’re already tired of looking at my spectacular Algonquin Park Fall colors shots. But, keep your jealousy to yourself. I have my own. LOL… I promise this is going to be the last entry of fall colours taken from Algonquin Park. I just couldnt resist sharing the

Algonquin Park – The Canoer

“Good morning”, he said. He greeted me with a bright smile enough to warm me up from the crispy morning temperature. Its 7:00 in Algonquin Park and the world was sheathed in autumn mist. The hazy hills and dales nearby are nowhere in sight and I had the feeling that,

Algonquin Park Fall Colours: The Lookout Trail

At the Lookout Trail in Algonquin Park, there’s a great fall colours that await hikers and visitors. It’s not really hard to fall in-love with a place thats as gorgeous as Algonquin Park—in Fall. The whole park is on fire with burning hues of red, orange, yellow and green. The

Quebec City: Observatoire de la Capitale

Observatoire de la Capitale in Quebec City offers a 360 degrees view of the city where half is a blast from the past and the other half is a picture of modernization. Up there, youll see rivers, mountains, bridges, spires and mazes of streets below. While going around in full

Quebec City – Montmorency Falls

When visiting Montmorency Falls, a few minutes ride by bus from Quebec City, anyone will always be reminded that this Falls is nearly 100 feet higher than Niagara Falls in southern Ontario. Every brochure, every tourist guide, every Quebecois would say that with pride. “It is a splendid introduction to

Boldt Castle

Boldt Castle is a heart-shaped island in the US side of The Thousand Islands. Its not your regular castle where a King and Queen used to live. Theres no such thing like that. Behind and within that imposing royal structure is a love story of a rich man who built

The Thousand Islands Tour

I have always wanted to go there. Was supposed to go there last year but for some reason I couldnt remember, it never happened. Two weekends ago, my biatches and I planned to go there by renting a car. Because they are biatches, so, it never happened. But, I was

Trans March Photos 2012

Trans March Photos 2012 Pride Toronto Unlike last year, this year’s Trans March is less glamorous–sans the glitters and glamour of the drag queens. However, this year has gathered more marchers than the previous one–and its the most political, too. The march itself, along Church Street, didnt really create much

Parliament Hill Centre Block

Parliament Hill Centre Block Ottawa, Canada The Parliament Hill in Ottawa is home to Canada’s Senate where legislations are scrutinized, debated and approved. The exterior and interior designs are architectural marvels of Gothic perfection: countless arches, buttresses, and pointed spires are ubiquitous all over the building. Unlike other government buildings around the world,

Montreal – The City Where The Sun Rises in The South

Another thing unique to Montreal is how the city follows directions. As far as Montrealers are concern, the riverside is South (which is actually East–if you look at the map) where the sun rises. For a tourist who has no sense of direction, this is just perfect. All you have

Niagara Falls at Night

The mighty Niagara Falls during the day is a sight to behold to every tourist who would surely leave the place with a great impression of Canadas most-visited natural wonder. At night, the falls is not just a raging water but a romantic destination for everyone—including couples of honeymooners who

Martyrs’ Shrine

An hour and a half drive from Toronto, lies a beautifully preserved, Gothic-styled Martyrs’ Shrine. According to David, the one who generously offered his time to bring us there, the Shrine was dedicated in honor for those early religious workers in Canada who first settled in Midland. These people were
