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!

Chocolate lovers in the know can't seem to get enough of the decadence that @hummingbirdchocolate provides in ALL of their sweet treats๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿซ

At their new Hummingbird Chocolate location (476 Ottawa St. Almonte), you can now reserve a private tour and see how all that chocolate yumminess comes together. During my visit, I had a real 'I Love Lucy' moment when I had the privilege of working on the chocolate covered caramel assembly line....And yes, I ate many caramel treats for 'quality control' measures๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ

Being one with nature in @discoverdominica ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ’ง๐Ÿ”ฅ
Who loves hot springs? I know I do, as they are incredibly relaxing and therapeutic๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ˜
.
Relaxing in one of Wotten Waven's well-known natural hot sulfur springs, which are believed to have medicinal qualities, was incredible!! The hot sulphuric water is mixed with river water, so it's not only tolerable but that it doesn't burn the skin. Complete relaxation!!
.
When traveling to new destinations, I try to immerse myself in cultural experiences, and this hot sulfur dip in Dominica was a must๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ
