For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved exploring historic sites and off the beaten path locations. My family and I enjoy returning to favourite places each year but also relish the research and planning that go into a journey to a brand new destination. In my younger years, I often traveled alone and now try to share my past experiences with my husband and children as we return to places I haven’t seen for decades, but with different eyes. Whether we are across the country or in our own neighbourhood, adventure awaits!
