Travel Diaries: Six Things to do in Philadelphia by Didier Young

At the beginning of March, I had the opportunity to head over to Philadelphia for a couple of days to attend their annual Flower Show. This marked my first time in the Pennsylvanian city and I will be honest with you guys, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. Philadelphia is not one of those cities that is overly romanticized like Paris and New York nor is it particularly known worldwide for anything other than cheese steak sandwiches, the liberty bell and Rocky. Here are some of the things to do if you’re even in the City of Brotherly Love and Sister Affection.

Travel Diaries: A Five Day Itinerary in The Florida Keys by Didier Young

I often mention how I love Toronto throughout every season. It is gorgeous in Fall, brisk in Spring, warm in Summer and magical in winter. However, I will admit that the drop in temperature and the promise of snow did hit hard this year so I was happy to pack up my bags to head to the Florida Keys for five days.

Testing Out the Pixel 3XL in New York by Didier Young

Hello New York! Even though I have lived in Canada for a decade now, it took me a while to make a trip to the Big Apple. Last spring was my first time in New York and it was such an overwhelmingly stimulating experience that I was eager to repeat. So when Andrew managed to get three days off and really wanted to take a short trip out of Toronto, New York was a no brainer. After all, it is only an hour away from home (by plane), it is easily accessible at Billy Bishop Airport right downtown and there was still so much for us to explore in the city. After booking our impromptu flights, we packed our overnighter bags, passports and I figured that it would be the perfect terrain to give the Google Pixel 3 XL a try.

Travel Diaries: Stockholm by Didier Young

A friend of mine was heading off to Stockholm this past week and asked me for some recommendations about the city. Since its been two years since my last trip to the Swedish city, I thought that it would be smart of me to pull up the blog post about Stockholm to share it with him. Imagine my surprise when I realized that I had never done a blog post about one of my favourite cities in the world! Of course, I decided to remedy to the situation by sitting down, editing my trip photos (you’d be surprised how much of a difference two years can do to someone’s editing style) and putting together this travel diary about the most populous city in the Nordic Countries.
