Casablanca Hotel – New York City

Casablanca Hotel - New York

If you’ve ever stayed at any of the Library Hotel Collection’s properties you probably know what I’m going to rave about after my recent stay at the Casablanca Hotel in Manhattan. The service!

Discover New York Neighbourhoods Through Food

Ahoy New York Food Tour

New York is a city of neighbourhoods. Each pocket of the city has its own identity, culture, and inevitably, unique food. One of the best ways to get to know a culture is to get to know their food and one of the best ways to get to know the food when you’re travelling is to take a food tour. New York has so many identities and cultures that it’s pretty impossible to take a generic New York food tour so you need to focus on the neighbourhoods. On my recent quick visit to the Big Apple I focussed on Little Italy and Chinatown with Ahoy NY Tours & Tasting.

Rose Manor Inn – Harbour Grace, NL

Rose Manor Inn, Harbour Grace

While I consider myself very familiar with the Baccalieu Trail in Newfoundland, I was shocked to discovered that I’d somehow not known about the existence of a jewel of a B&B in Harbour Grace. So when the Rose Manor Inn invited me to come stay and see what they were all about I had to take them up on it.
