  • Kits Beach Covered in Snow!

    Putting February 2019 behind us: It was the coldest February Vancouverites have encountered in over 80 years, and among our top 10 snowiest months

  • Incredible Isle of Skye

    One visit to the achingly beautiful Isle of Skye is not enough.

  • We’re Seeing Fireworks!

    Here’s a look at Vancouver, Canada’s annual Celebration of Light

  • Faces of Cuba: Girl at the Window

    Visiting Havana, I stayed in a casa particulare, a private home just two blocks from the Malecón and removed from the tourist bubble.

  • London Calling: Beautiful Belgravia

    London has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to architectural treats, but Belgravia is in a field of its own.

Locals told me the “Rock”, as it’s known, doesn’t have much of a gap between winter and summer. Once summer arrives, though, it’s a beautiful sight.

Caribbean Waters

Last September, in the good old days when we could readily travel, I travelled to Barbados for work.  As I do whenever possible, I snagged window seats for both flights. The views above the Caribbean were incredible, and here’s my…
