• Norway in a Nutshell Day 2, Bergen to Flåm

    July 27, 2018 Kate

    Wow! On day 2 of our Norway in a Nutshell tour we left Bergen and made our way back to Oslo by train, bus, and boat. It was an incredible day. I know these kinds of tours can be offputting to many as they’re, well, “touristy”, but we were so glad we did this. It…

  • An Evening in Bergen, Norway

    July 20, 2018 Kate

    Are you seeing the colours of those houses! Ugh. On day one of our Norway in a Nutshell tour, we spent the night in Bergen. We arrived by train at 7pm and spent the next couple of hours walking through the harbour, the fish market, and the neighbouring residential streets. Unfortunately, the fish market was closed by the time…

  • Oslo Opera House in Norway

    July 9, 2018 Kate

    Why yes, that *is* a roof you can walk up like a ramp. Who said opera wasn’t fun? Whenever I visit a European city I always try to see the opera house. Not because I’m particularly into opera, but because the architecture tends to be pretty jaw-dropping. (Opera houses and libraries, those are the best!)…

  • The Best Fish and Chips Near Salford, Manchester

    July 6, 2018 Kate

    For what is a trip to the UK without fish and chips, really. Our family treated us to some truly wonderful fish and chips from The Good Catch while we were visiting them in Salford. Complete with homemade tartar sauce and mushy peas. Yes, mushy peas. And no, they weren’t terrible. ;) The following morning…

  • Tatton Park Gardens in Cheshire, UK

    July 4, 2018 Kate

    OK, so. I’m not sure what’s more mind-boggling. The fact that this oasis exists, or the idea that some Lord owned all 2000 of these glorious acres until he died in 1958 and left it to the National Trust. Can you imagine calling this your backyard? Like, WHAT. As a Canadian, I’m used to space.…

  • Creative In Work Vs Creative In Business

    June 30, 2018 Kate

    What the hell does it mean to be “a creative”? Let’s just start there. Creative small business owner. Creative Entrepreneur… We throw these terms around a lot, but something about it has never sat right with me. Honestly, I’ve always found the term creative entrepreneur a little cringy. I think I’ve finally figured out why.…

We’ve been talking about this trip seriously for 3 years, but it’s been a goal of mine since I visited Stockholm for the first time in the spring of…

  • A Birthday Venture to the Islands

    June 13, 2018 Kate

    The Toronto Islands, that is. Somehow I’ve lived here for how many years and never made my way over?? We started at Hanlan’s Point and walked our way right around to Ward’s Island, where we capped the day off with sangria, chorizo nachos, and apple rhubarb pie (voted best combo by one Kate Smalley) at…
