I love Easter, not least because I’m chocoholic – I just can’t resist the stuff and at this time of the year I can indulge myself without feeling guilty, well not too much anyway! One of my favourite places to shop for Easter chocolate is Purdy’s – this year I plan to buy their vintage rabbit tins full of Purdys Chocolates milk and dark chocolates as gifts for my family. For me, I love plain chocolate and I’ll pick up one of their chocolate bunnies as my guilty pleasure. And yes, like 76% of all North Americans I’ll eat the ears first! Another favourite of mine is Rogers’ Chocolates milk chocolate jelly bean bark – now there’s an Easter treat I can’t wait to get my hands on. (more…)

I love road trips – there’s something about the freedom to go wherever the fancy takes you, stop whenever you see something of interest and the opportunity to eat out every night!

Ok sure Kamloops has lots of “refined” and “relaxing” things to do while you visit. There’s the great music festivals, the symphony, taking in a play, fly-fishing, tubing down the river, sunning on the beaches and even incredible golf courses. Although if you golf with me I wouldn’t call that relaxing (fore……). These are all wonderful things indeed, but what if you feel the need for a little excitement or adrenaline? Well of course you could visit one of the local ranches and try and ride an unbroken stallion (highly unlikely) but Kamloops offers several more practical options. (more…)
