Three Faces of Canada: Niagara Falls, Toronto, and Vancouver by Peter Prokaj from A Journey We Love
Oh, Canada! The first thing I think of when I imagine Canada is the vastness of it. It’s the second biggest country in the world by total area, behind only Russia. If you wanted to drive across the whole of Canada, it would take you 2 full weeks! I also think of hockey rinks, …

We’ve all been there. Friday night dinner. Do we stay home and eat the leftover rice and chicken, or do we hop to the nearest Oliver Garden and partake in their unlimited soup and salad menu (that’s still a thing, right?), or do we try that new recipe from Martha Stewart (also still a thing, …
