Saskatoon, in Saskatchewan Canada, is a city that caught me by surprise. I knew the surrounding region is considered the breadbasket of Canada, so I expected the prairie capitol surrounded by farmland to be a bit provincial. So I was beyond excited to discover I was wrong. With the South Saskatchewan River running through it, the downtown core and surrounding neighborhoods are delightfully trendy, buzzing with restaurants, breweries and distilleries that stay busy into the night come summer, when daylight stretches on for some 18-hours. And when the sun does set, the waterfront trails that run for some 50-miles along the banks of the river are great places to take advantage of the spectacular sunsets, which paint the color a rainbow of saturated colors. And Saskatoon is also home to plenty of culture with festivals like MoSoFest bringing bands to seven different venues around the city and the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, the second largest (after Vancouver) in Western Canada, also attracting sizeable crowds. Saskatoon is also a city easy to explore by foot, which means unless you plan heading further North to places like Prince Albert National Park, walking could suit you just fine. But best of all, I loved the people, who are unquestionably friendly and prideful to call this spirited prairieland home.

    Kayaking at Hopewell rocks where you will find the highest tides in the world some 45 plus feet! (tides turn every 6 hours) the rocks are formed by glacial erosion and the water is like chocolate milk from mud flats and silt. @destinationnb #explorenb #explorecanada

    It was amazing to spend a few days Liscombe Lodge Resort Nova Scotia for a nature escape. Yesterday we hiked the rugged Liscombe River trail for sights of a waterfall, fishing pools and foresty views. Today I couldn't wait to hike the Mayflower trail which follows along the Liscombe River. Afterwards, relaxed at my chalet with hot chocolate on the deck and smores at the bonfire before crashing for the night. 😴
