Instagramming Canada - Saskatchewan September 28, 2015 · 2 min. read
We're nearing the half-way point of this cross Canada journey, and today I bring to you my home province of Saskatchewan.
To many, Saskatchewan is boring: it's difficult to spell, easy to draw and plain to look at. In reality however, Saskatchewan is beautiful. It's covered in thousands of lakes, rolling hills, sand dunes, lush forests and sprawling cities. It's a plethora of cultures and a mosaic of people. It's my home, and freezing winter aside, I love it.
Being from southern Saskatchewan, I don't get up north very often so I don't even get to see the things in this article. To be honest, I've lived here for 23 years and I've never been to my neighboring city of Saskatoon. That's right: I've been to Rome and I've been to Hong Kong, but I've never been to Saskatoon. Seeing that city via Instagram was a treat, and I hope to make my way up there soon. Because of this, I shared a lot more Saskatoon pictures than I did Regina pictures. If you're interested in seeing more about Regina, I did a whole article about it.
Before we begin, I want to thank my sweetheart, Jessica Nuttall, who I thank at the end of every blog, for letting me use a picture of her farm for my cover image. She doesn't Instagram much, but she's an incredible photographer. Please be sure to give her a follow.
I have a feeling this was one of my most anticipated articles as my Instagram fanbase is mostly located in Saskatchewan, so, I finally introduce you to "Instagramming Canada - Saskatchewan".

And, as always, a big thank you to my sweetheart Jessica Nuttall for proof reading a countless number of my articles. I couldn't do any of this without you. I love you.

8 Places to Visit in Regina
When I first started this project, I didn't know what would come of it.
During my interview with the Saskatchewanderer, she recommended I approach Tourism Regina and see if I could write for them. Tourism Regina agreed and published my article, but due to it's size restrictions, I wasn't able to talk about as many places as I wanted to.
Since beginning this project, I have sent over three dozen emails to many organizations and businesses around the city. Once I was done my initial research, I had more questions than answers, some of which I don't think I'll ever know. Once realizing the vast amount of information out there, I decided to cut this project down substantially. But, although it ended up different then I thought it would, I am happy to finally present to you, "8 Places to Visit in Regina".Read More
8 Places to Visit in Quebec City
I was recently asked if I preferred my time in Montreal or Quebec City more, and while Montreal is a gorgeous city, decorated with thousands of green copper spires, hosts incredible festivals, has some of the most fantastic food I have ever tasted, and is spotted with beautiful parks, there was just something about Quebec City that spoke to me. Being over four hundred years old, Quebec City is one of the last remaining "walled cities" in North America, and is the only one north of Mexico. Quebec City was the location of some of the greatest conflicts in Canadian history, including the Siege of Quebec by the British.
Belonging to three very different countries (France, England, and Canada) in its four hundred year existence, Quebec City is a mixing pot of old traditions, new ideas, cobblestone streets and modern architecture. Since there is so much to see in Quebec City, I figured I would narrow it down to a couple and let you discover the rest! Here is "8 Places to Visit in Quebec City".
Old Quebec envelopes several locations listed below, and will be where you are spending the most of your time. This historic neighborhood was first developed during the early 1600s and has since expanded to become two separate areas: Upper Town (Haute-Ville) and Lower Town (Basse-Ville).Read More
This is the fourth of five articles about trips to take across Canada. I was inspired to do this series after I was disappointed by what Canadian tours G Adventures offered on their website.
Since I am Saskatchewan born and raised, it always bothered me when people said there's nothing to do in my home province. If you're looking for culture, history, food, beer, sporting events, community or a touch of quirkiness, Saskatchewan is the best place to visit!
If you've been following my blog for awhile now, you'll know I could write a whole article about places to visit in Saskatchewan (actually, I have written it). For sake of brevity, I handpicked some of my favourite places, but there are many that I left out. Are there any places you'd add to this list? Let me know in the comments below.Read More
