Pioneer Village Sunday
This weekend, amidst the cold, the snow and the Christmas parties, we set off along a new extension to Toronto's subway system to step back in time at the Black Creek Pioneer Village.
Chicago Long Weekend
We spent Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in the United States without turkey dinner, so not our typical Thanksgiving! Despite that, we had lots of fun exploring Chicago and enjoying the warm weather
Beaumont-Hamel at The Rooms Sunday
This past weekend we were back in Newfoundland, mostly for the wedding of our best buddies Rebecca and Piers, but also to hang out with family for Thanksgiving festivities. We also managed to make a trip to The Rooms museum on Sunday, to see their latest exhibit commemorating the 100th anniversary of the massacre at Beaumont-Hamel during the First World War.
After a busy day of lines and rollercoasters at Canada’s Wonderland on Saturday, we went for a leisurely walking tour on Sunday afternoon with the ROM to learn a bit more about the city we live in. Along the way we discovered just how much history can be crammed into a small neighbourhood over the span of a couple hundred years.
This last weekend was the first in a while that we didn't have anything planned, so at the last minute we booked some train tickets to take us up to Ottawa! Arriving on Friday evening, we enjoyed sampling the sights of the nation's capital (aka Elizabeth's birthplace).
We had another busy weekend with Elizabeth's family, scavenging for clues around U of T after dark and exploring the beauty that is High Park!
After a couple of fun days in Hong Kong, we set off for our next Asian city, Taipei! Although it rained on us almost every day and we had a few mishaps along the way, it's home to some of the friendliest people, and this city definitely has a special place in our hearts.
Textile Museum Saturday
Our brand new ROM membership gave us free access to the Textile Museum of Canada this weekend, so we dropped by to learn about this unique museum and ended up joining in on a quick tour!
Pompeii at the ROM Saturday
On Saturday we took a short walk from our apartment to visit the Royal Ontario Museum and check out the latest exhibits!
A Week in the UK: Part II
During the second half of our week back in the UK we set out on a couple of day trips to visit family and take in some sights in Wales and Salisbury!
We're Elizabeth and Luke.
Join us on our weekly Something Saturday adventures, where we explore somewhere new or try something new!
