The full country experience at Windbreak Farm B&B

By Paul Knowles (first published in the Mitchell Advocate)

For Cathy Hutson, owning and operating a Bed & Breakfast was an ideal occupation. Her parents ran a hunting and fishing camp in northern Ontario, so “from a young age, I was used to the tourism industry.” She describes herself as an unusual combination – a homebody, and yet an entrepreneur – so a home-based business seemed the ideal answer.

Restoring the glory: volunteers re-create a 200-year old Irish walled garden

Leave time for the unexpected: that’s a very important rule for travellers. Too tight a travel schedule will leave you hostage to the clock, and unable to explore wonderful things you might stumble upon. Like, for instance, Colclough Gardens in County Wexford, Ireland. It would be easy to miss ColClough, as you rush to visit the many other worthwhile sites in Wexford – but don’t.

Complexity in our nation’s capital

By Paul Knowles

The first question we had after a flying visit to our nation’s capital a few weeks ago was, why don’t we do this more often? Because Ottawa is a wonderful city with dozens of fascinating things to do. We had time for only two of them, but both of our chosen sites were nothing short of terrific.
