The Dead Sea

You must go to the Dead Sea if you are visiting Israel.  Though most of the locals (i.e. David and his family) told me it was boring and not worth it, I disagree and think anyone visiting the country would enjoy the beautiful drive.  It is the lowest point on earth and the water is so salty that you cannot help but float.  As you walk out into the water from the beach you will find yourself levitating up and the only comfortable position is to lie on your back, otherwise your legs lift up and you end up face…

The Land of Milk & Honey

Before meeting David Israel was never on my radar in terms of a place to visit.  I knew little of this beautiful country.  After having spent 2.5 weeks in my boyfriend’s homeland I am so glad I had the opportunity to visit!  Below I will include my favourite spots, recommendations and details about my trip. The trip began with my longest flight ever (30 min longer than my flight to Istanbul).  David and I were lucky as we got a row to ourselves on Air Canada’s Dreamliner and I got to lie down to sleep!  Unfortunately, upon our arrival in…

Café Cancan

It only takes a glance at my Instagram account to know that one of my favourite pass times is scoping out new cute restaurants, bars and cafes.  I have travelled all over the world and always make a point to find at least one Instagram worthy interior wherever I am.  This task is definitely easier to accomplish in some places (ie. NYC, or Paris) than others.  I am really excited to see that Toronto is beginning to become more photogenic with photo-shoot worthy spots popping up in different neighbourhoods around the city.  I believe I discovered Café Cancan through my…

Uptown Girl

This post is so late!  I was last in New York at the beginning of August.  At the time I didn’t realize it was the last time I would be going to visit David as his project ended shortly after.  I honestly miss visiting so much and wish we were going to be there for the fall and winter, since I’ve only seen NYC in spring and summer and would love to walk through Central Park with the orange leaves, or with the bow bridge covered in snow!  I spent the majority of my time alone on this trip as…

Toronto’s Most Charming Cafés

I am one of those people who is absolutely useless before my morning cup of coffee.  It is one of my favourite things about the morning.  Such a comfort it is to have a hot cup of coffee in hand.  Especially when enjoyed inside a cute café & extra points if it comes in a beautifully designed mug.  I also love the culture around coffee.  Grabbing a cup with a friend, or hiding out in a café with other creative minds mid day.  My boyfriend and I will often grab coffee in the morning and then go for a walk…
