When I mention to people that I just got back from Australia one of the first things they ask me is how was my flight. I took the best route from Toronto to Perth and it was still 25 hours of travel to get there. Most people I talk to mention how awful it must [...]

Boutique Hotel, Fremantle WA | Hougoumont

While visiting Perth, Australia I had a chance to stay at the Hougoumont Hotel in Fremantle just a short train ride from Perth.  Named after the last ship to bring convicts to Australia, the Hougoumont is a combination of sea-worthy use of space and luxury.

Cathay Pacific | I Can Fly Program

As a former teacher I am always interested in hearing about educational programs that are outside the traditional classroom. I love programs that think outside the box when it comes to children learning. Children learn better when they experience the learning rather than just sitting and listening to instruction.
