In London there is no shortage of great museums and art galleries. I've been to London many times and have never gone to the same museum twice.

Whenever I'm in London I try to book afternoon tea somewhere. It's part of the British tradition and who doesn't love warm tea and bite-sized treats?

Two Toronto tours worth taking - The Best of West Food Tour and Toronto Graffiti Tour Queen West.

Camping in Killarney Provincial Park. It is known for its lush forests, pink granite, the La Cloche Mountains’ white quartzite ridges and over 50 exceptionally crystal clear, sapphire lakes set among woody hills. It is quiet, peaceful and the views are breathtaking.

This past Canada Day weekend we felt like the only ones left in the city. We found a great spot for brunch with live music and this made our day.

Prince Edward County is a great spot for a short get-away from Toronto. Enjoy wine country, cycling and Sandbanks Provincial Park.

I've learnt the hard way that schlepping a big heavy suitcase is no fun. I only go carry-on now and I've got my packing down to a science.

Favourite Travel Books

Research, research and more research...

When planning a trip I will usually pick up one or two travel books. I now have my favourites.

For Europe I never travel without my Rick Steves. His books are very informative and go into great detail on cities, towns, museums, transportation, etc. They are easy to read and well-organized. He also gives great recommendations for tour guides and many of the ones I've used are from his books.

I like Fodor's and Frommers for their hotel and restaurant recommendations. If I am going to only one city for a few days, these books often come in a 3- or 4-day version which I have found very handy as they highlight the "must dos."
