- Few countries hold as much 1000 and 1 Nights fascination as Morocco does and it seems everyone, gay or straight is planning a visit to this dreamy, fabled country where behind every medina wall an adventure awaits, awash in rainbow colours, art, architecture, and cuisine. Morocco has a romantic reputation as a great destination for mostly French and German tourists, but...Read more
- Getting much needed time away from the hustle and bustle of the city is just what everyone needs from time to time. This July, I was fortunate to spend my vacation away time in Quebec, a short plane hop or leisurely road trip with friends from either New York or Toronto. Vacation Day One: Nordik Spa-Nature The first stop...Read more
- Madrid is not one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Much of its historical and cultural history has been torn down to make way for the new. Indeed, it seems to be a city on the verge of the next century, good and bad. The traffic and the congestion will get even a seasoned traveler down but what it lacks in beauty,...Read more
- Chef Jason Bangerter's unselfish generosity is well known in a selfish and indulgent industry where egos run high and boyish swagger and tattoos predominate. We first encountered Chef Bangerter's generosity and talent when he helmed Auberge du Pommier's very French kitchen. He later created imaginative menus for Oliver & Bonacini's then newly opened TIFF-oriented Luma where Chef generously developed menus...Read more

- Michiel is at the corner to meet us promptly at 10:00 and we drive over to the Leidseplein and grab a coffee, get caught up and plan the day. It is a typical Monday morning – garbage trucks picking up from the weekend's revelries, late workers hurrying to work, cafés rolling out their awnings for the day. There is...Read more
- One of the best things to do during Canada's short summer is to spend lazy days at the beach, either playing in the sand or being in the water. These four books will inspire you to travel to the beach, whether to a family cottage on a lake or by a wave-crashing ocean. Just Like Family Author Kate Hilton...Read more
- My last visit to Mont Tremblant's Spa Scandinave was in a mid-winter March, a glorious late winter sun, setting over a rushing Rivière Diable, her banks crusted with breaking sheets of ice. There was still snow on the ground, and the Spa’s smoky out-doors fire place became my favourite post-hot and cold waters resting spot. So zen in fact, at one...Read more
