Out and About|Suvlaki

Greek food has always been one of my favourite. When we used to live in Germany, our parents used to always treat us to a Gyros meal at the little Greek restaurant in Heinsberg. In fact, when we do go back to Germany now and then, we still go there! It has sort of become our little tradition.

Hence, my sister and I decided to give Suvlaki a go! Continue reading “Out and About|Suvlaki”

Out and About|Palm Vaults

On my birthday, my sister and I had brunch at Palm Vaults. The café is decorated in a very urban way. You can tell even before entering the café, that you aren’t entering your normal cafés like Costa or Starbucks. You will be surrounded with pastel decor and plants hanging beautifully from the ceiling. Oh and if you are a vegan, you will be spoiled for choice!

To begin, I had a Lavender Latte and toast with tomato, basil and pesto. My sister had a mushroom toastie.

Out and About|Review: Emerald Lake Lodge



Emerald Lake Lodge - Canada - Review - www.rockpaperwhisk.com

 

Emerald Lake Lodge is where I spent my first stay once I arrived In Canada this Summer. I got there really late and to be honest, was a bit lost. Thankfully the shuttle bus driver was there and made sure I got to the main reception safely. He was really friendly and made me feel really welcome. Checking in at the reception was quick and easy. Once I got the keys I couldn’t wait to go to my cabin and just go to sleep as a I had a very hectic journey.

So got to my cabin and opened the door. Just wow. It was exactly as described. I loved the small details. The bed was so comfy and the fire place just made it so much more better! I got told at the reception that wifi is only available at the main lodge, but I managed to get enough wifi connection from my room! The only issue I had was that the bathroom lock was broken.

The next day I managed to get an early morning view of the location. My view from the balcony was just so peaceful and spectacular.

Once I got ready, I went out for a little stroll. The weather was quite chilly, and parts of the lake was still frozen, but that is quite normal for Canada during May. So if you do decide to go around the time I went there, be prepared!

Overall I gave the Emerald Lake Lodge a 4 out 5 score on tripadvisor. Bear in mind, I only stayed there for a night and i didn’t try out the food they offered. If it wasn’t for the bathroom lock, I would have given them a 5 out of 5. You have to go there just to experience the view it has to offer.
