Pack this…Snacks






Snacks!!!  Do you hate the selection of food on the plane?  Do you have special dietary needs?  Anyone can bring their own food in your carry-on bag or checked luggage as long as the food passes customs regulations and airport security regulations for liquids and gel, such as yogurt, or humus.  Be aware that generally no fruit, veg, or meat are(…)

Got in very late to Halifax. Decided to go to a sports bar called Bubba Ray’s on Spring Garden Road. The interior was a typical sports bar that looked like the designer had a problem choosing TVs so they bought one of everything at the store. There were very few places on the walls that did not(…)
