The BFF Getaway You Didn’t Realize You Needed

As I sit down to write this blog post, I have to admit that I not am not okay with how little Catherine and I see each other these day. The pandemic and physical distancing recommendations haven’t helped in that, but with us living so far away from one another, gone are the days of seeing my best friend every day. I guess for many of us, that’s kind of just “life” these days and as we get older. So when I do get to see her, I want to ensure that it’s the most amazing time I can make it. Which is why I was so excited to plan a quick little getaway to Niagara Falls for some food, some wine, and lots of laughter together. Let me tell you all about the perfect BFF getaway you didn’t realize you needed and how you can recreate it this season with yours!

A Weekend in Chicago

Let me tell you, 2019 was quite the doozy. But I’d like to think that I made the most out of it for sure. Recently, I reconnected with my love of travel and music – and coincidentally, the convergence of the two together. I think that’s why festivals are always such a great time.

We packed our bags and off we went to the windy city!

A Weekend Getaway in Kingston

Recently, I decided to pay a visit to Kingston for work. Growing up in Ottawa, I would pass it by on the way to Toronto. But I think I’ve only ever stopped in maybe once or twice to explore, so I didn’t really ever get a sense of the city at all. I clearly had no idea what I was missing out on! Kingston itself has roots embedded deep within Canada’s history, with former trading posts, Fort Frontenac, Queens University, the Royal Military College, and even being the birthplace of the first prime minister of Canada.

How One Night in Toronto Changed Everything

Now, let me set the scene for you. It’s the early 2000’s and I’m the lead singer of a rock band, all the while trying to make money working at a local record store. Almost every night, you can find me scoping out the latest show in town – from metal to emo, hardcore to indie, and everything in between. I spent years travelling to different cities with friends so that we could follow our favourite bands around. Each song bringing me closer to new inspiration, each performance to new feelings and even some venues to new friends.
