Favorite Blog Post of 2017

With this year coming to an end I find myself in a rather reflective mood. And looking back on my 2017 blogging ventures is easy because it was a big year for the old blog!

Mini Camping Trip – Gros Morne, Newfoundland

This year we decided to take a mini-vacation right here at home. Three nights in Gros Mourne National Park. I guess Gros Morne isn’t exactly in our backyard as it is an 8-hour drive from St. John’s, but it is still Newfoundland and it is beautiful. Gros Morne is a World Heritage site and an amazing place to visit for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, adventurers and explorers. It really is magical.

3 Museums you Should Visit in Amsterdam

I am a museum kind of gal. I love the romance and admiration that washes over me when standing in the presence of an ancient art piece. There is something so awe-inspiring about the enthusiasm and dedication in which artists, royalty, and religion had in documenting the myths, legends and everyday experiences of society throughout the ages. What impresses me more than the art or artifacts themselves is the shared respect that each culture has in preserving history. It is a beautiful act that makes us human. There are so many lessons to learn, hidden gems to discover, and…
