Exotic and far off destinations fill my dreams – sunsets, blue waters, bright moons, and tantalizing foods. I don’t have a trust fund or a silver spoon. I need to work hard for every trip. It’s almost like chasing a high as soon as I am back I want to go again.

In between my travels to keep myself happy I like to “travel” at home and explore what is in my own backyard.

Yesterday I tool a lovely day trip to a small town outside of Hanover, Ontario about 2 hours outside of Toronto. It was peaceful and tranquil.


We rented tubes and floated down the Saugeen River with a beer in hand. It was heavenly. My biggest stress for the day was losing my sunglasses on the river while being attacked by a tree. I’m over it now. It’s just a possession and well worth the adventure. The tube ride lasted about 1 hour (depends on your entry and exit point on the river) and I did it twice.


In true Canadian fashion we sparked up the BBQ – Chicken, burgers, hot dogs and corn!! The food was great and the beer was even better- eh!

Gotta love the Canadian outdoors!

About the Author


I don't travel to escape I travel to self discover. To see different parts of the world to build my personal tool kit. I enjoy the path less travelled to truly learn about the traditions and nuances of my fellow citizens of this great world. Born and raised in Toronto of Trinidadian descent I never forget my roots and as much as I love leaving on that jet plane I always find satisfaction in coming home to my great city to share the tales of my great adventures with my friends and family.
