Staying Close To Home – Exploring Ontario: Millcroft Inn & Spa, Alton, Ontario

Millions of people from around the world come to Canada and Ontario specifically for their holidays or vacation time. We don’t understand it, but people in other countries don’t understand why we go to their country for a holiday! Since we’re not flying anywhere anytime soon, we’re focusing on travelling closer to home by car.

Staying Close To Home: Exploring Ontario – Muskoka, Ontario

This is the first of several articles that we’re going to be doing… Ever since the world-wide lockdowns we have been wondering when or IF we’ll get to travel again. You’ve probably noticed we’ve been very quiet for the past 2 year – we just didn’t know what to expect going forward, and even if we were going to continue doing TravelBloggers anymore. Now that things are a bit clearer we’ve decided to continue, but we’re staying close to home… for now. Living in Ontario for us is somewhat dull – we’d rather be off travelling around Europe or the Caribbean, but millions of people from around the world come to Canada and Ontario specifically for their holidays or vacation time. We don’t understand it, but people we talk to in other countries don’t understand why we go to their country for a holiday! Since we’re not flying anywhere anytime soon, we’re focusing on travelling closer to home by car for the time being – re-discovering home if you will.

Belgium Has More To Offer Than The World-Famous Spa-Francorchamps Racetrack!

Belgium… what do you know about this country that sits right beside France and Germany? We knew very little, but we were going there for a race at the world-famous Spa-Francorchamps racetrack. Since we’d never been to Belgium before, we thought we’d spend some time after the race doing a quick tour of the area. With only about 2 ½ days before we were scheduled to be in Germany, we took in as much as we could in that short period of time… and nobody does speed-touring like us!

Caribbean & Cross-Country Adventures!

(This post contains affiliate links.  Click here to see what that means.) It’s been a while since we posted – life changes, health and work gets in the way – but we still have that wanderlust, the desire for adventure … even if we’re not currently able to get out and experience it all ourselves! That said, we’re here today to share … because we can’t keep this to ourselves! We love living vicariously through the lives and stories of friend and author, Nick Harvey and his wife Cheryl.
