The Secret Movie Theater at One Aldwych

I have a confession. After a day running around sightseeing, hiking, kayaking or whatever latest adventure it is that we’re researching, I’m exhausted! I long ago was over the nightlife scene and it might sound lame, but I’m often more than happy to just order room service and stay in. So when One Aldwych, a luxe 5-star …

The Camargue: France’s Wild West

Close your eyes and picture France. I’d bet scenes of chic Parisians sipping on wine at sidewalk cafes, strolling the banks of the Seine, and biking with baguettes in their basket come to mind. I’m not a gambler, but I’d also bet that what you’d never picture are cowboys, cattle ranches, and bull fighting. But …

Eruptions typically occur every two to three years and sleeping giants could cause mass devastation at any moment without warning. And that’s exactly …

5 Tips for Viewing the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Since 2005 it has been a tradition for my mom and I to meet in New York City during the holidays. We’d shop and sip eggnog lattes at Starbucks in the Trump Tower on 5th Avenue, see the Rockettes’ famous high kicks and admire the massive glittering tree in Rockefeller Center as skaters glided by …

Climbing the Via Ferrata du Pont du Diable

I was about to trust my life to some metal cables anchored to a cliff face high above the Ardeche River. I don’t have a fear of heights – I’ve flown a stunt plane and mastered a knee hang on the flying trapeze this year, after all – but I’d be lying if I didn’t …

Toronto Snow Show | Win a Sony Action Cam #SnowShow14

Winter is coming and we couldn’t be more excited! Tim can’t wait to hit the slopes and I’m planning to be a bunny hill newbie after some snowboarding lessons. And who doesn’t love après-ski? Those breathtaking views, sipping cocktails in a slope side sun lounger, and mountain top dance parties. I’m totally ready to break …

Hiking Iceland’s Smoky Valley

Plumes of steam rise up around me like smoke rising from a fire. One step in the wrong bubbling pool, and the soles of your shoes could literally melt. But not to worry; the dangerous pools are marked with signs and so long as you stick to the well-trodden trail, Reykjadalur is a beautiful spot …
