Our Salem Adventure

Salem Cemetary Sunken Stone

In the midst of my ‘super crappy October,’ Rick and I realized that it had been far too long since we’d actually given ourselves a real vacation. Together. So we decided it was time to plan a little roadtrip. I’m not really sure why, but I suggested Salem, MA. It’s only a 5 hour drive from Montreal, has enormous historical significance, and it’s also home to lots of cheesiness thanks to their witch hunting past. Also, New England seafood. Our…

35 Before 35: Go To Tokyo

[slideshow gallery_id=”1″]   Sorry this is a little later than I expected. The jet-lag from Tokyo has taken a lot longer to recover from than we would like and things are just starting to get back to normal around here.

Tokyo I’m In Love II

A few more snap-shots of Tokyo as we close out our time in Japan. My first live sumo basho! The view from our room in Hakone. After a relaxing couple of nights at the onsen, we jumped right back into the craziness of Tokyo in Shinjuku. Rick at the Capcom bar. Thanks to Sarah for the recommendation! You can’t tell, but that big building on the right is the Square-Enix headquarters. And finally, as a gift for all my hard…

Toronto Mini-Guide Day 1

It’s actually a holiday in Quebec right now, but unlike the rest of the province Rick and I have opted to stay in town and have a little “stay-cation”. However, earlier this month Rick and I decided to treat ourselves for our 2 year anniversary this year and booked a little last-minute get away to TO. The idea was to have an indulgent, urban adventure being ridiculous hipsters and eating all of the food. It was awesome and I’m going…
