Drinking Gruners and Rieslings, All In A Day’s Work!

By on November 20, 2016

Several months ago I had the splendid pleasure of being invited to Wachau, Austria and get knee deep in their wine culture.

What an incredible journey it was for me to experience Austria’s wine scene. To be at the heart of the wineries and walk amongst their vineyards and see how they make some of the world’s best white wines.

I was spoiled nonetheless with the generosity of the wineries with their culinary offerings. To eat some of Austria’s signature dishes while basking in the warm reception of their hospitality was truly amazing.

I am proud to say that my unforgettable travel to the Wachau region was published on Natalie Maclean’s website, Canada’s largest wine review web site: http://www.nataliemaclean.com/blog/wachau-valley-wine-austria/

I highly recommend you indulge in a glass or two in an Austrian Gruner and enjoy my travel!

Cheers!

  • Today is International Womens Day๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ˜ and I think it's important to acknowledge the important role women play in our lives - be it your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister, friend, niece or colleague. Everyday women are faced with a plethora of decisions to make, some challenging and life altering to the simple ones we can do in our sleep. We are incredible women that often get defined or labelled by someone else's misperception of who we really are. One thing I've learned over the years when wanting to provide support, it's important to remember that it's about SUPPORTING THE WOMAN and not necessarily the decision that has been made. I applaud all women that juggle the diverse roles that they play in their daily lives - everything from being the best mom they can be to their children, a successful working professional, a loving supportive wife and all around great friend. I tip my hat to you all!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š #internationalwomensday #iwd2019 #travelblogger #taiwan #nightfoodmarket #foodblogger #supportwomen #girlboss #confidence #empoweringwomen #woman #empowerment #thefoodtease #inthemoment #waunderlust #nomad #passportready #travelready #myrules #myterms #nightlife

  • This afternoon I had the pleasure of being invited to the @sheratonottawahotel to kick off the Dominican Gastronomic & Cultural Festival by @godomrep  @godomrepmtl and @sirencommspr
The festival is celebrated in the framework of the 65th Anniversary of diplomatic relations between the Dominican Republic and Canada. 
The next 2 days, guests will have the opportunity to taste the amazing flavours that the Dominican Republic has to offer at the hotel for lunch (buffet) and Thursday evening will be the Dominican Republic Carnival Night (๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ—๐Ÿฅ—๐ŸŽถ). Dominican cuisine is one of the most diverse in the Caribbean region, and is considered the result of confluence of cultures such as the indigenous Taino, African and Hispanic. Guests will also have the opportunity to buy authentic crafts from Dominican artists located in the hotel.
