    Koko Brill survived then thrived in chef Michael Smith's TV boot camp

    Vancouver food blogger Koko Brill got the full meal deal when she stepped into chef Michael Smith’s kitchen production studio.

    New TV series profiles northern Saskatchewan’s Nordic Lodge | Video

    When Chris Triffo made his pitch to her, Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel was not having the best day: new business, new baby and an outstanding bill of a million bucks for the latter.

    Yellowstone: Hiking, camping, sightseeing opportunities beyond Old Faithful and the geysers

    Old Faithful likely comes to mind when you think of Yellowstone National Park. And it's certainly worth seeing, along with other geysers. But the geysers are just the start of what Yellowstone offers: hiking, biking, camping, fishing, wildlife-spotting and more.
  • Rocky Mountain hostels can make getting out there a little more affordable

    Rocky Mountain hostels can make getting out there a little more affordable

    My hands burned in the crisp morning air as I carried the last of our overnight gear down the path from our cabin at the Mosquito Creek Hostel. I looked across the river to the campground and paused to watch a family sitting by their campfire, blowing on their hands for warmth. A small tent was set up beside them and I shuddered shuttered at how cold it must have been for them overnight. This is life in the Rockies where it can go well below zero at night and then reach 20C by late afternoon. Camping has always been the most affordable way to spend the night in the mountains but thanks to Hostelling International, there’s another cost-friendly option in the form of ten wilderness hostels spread out across the mountain parks of Alberta and British Columbia.

    It's still a tent, but Montana dude ranch offers a decidedly five-star spin

    I woke up groggy, from the kind of deep sleep customary to camping outdoors. The rain was hammering the roof of our tent, and the wind howled fiercely as it tried to invade the canvass flaps. My face felt chilled from the dip in temperature typical on September nights in Montana, but the heavy down-filled quilt covering our king bed managed to keep the cool air at bay. This was definitely my style of camping.

    The point of The Point: Whatever you want

    There was a time when the Adirondacks were dotted with grand displays of wealth of the newly rich industrialists of the late 1800s and the turn of the century. The Astors, the Guggenheims, the Vanderbilts and the Rockefellers were among the families who looked north from bustling New York, and began building log mansions so they could breathe the fresh air, be a bit sporty, do some boating. The movement became known as the Great Camp era, one that came to define rustic luxury.

    Who wouldn't want to camp out in Belize?

    It was our first night in Belize and things were not starting out well. "You didn’t tell me we were camping!" exclaimed my 16-year-old daughter Kelsey. "I would never have agreed to come if I had known we were camping."

    Canoeing with crocs on Zambezi an authentic bush experience

    "Welcome to canoeing on the Zambezi River, our most dangerous activity at Chiawa," says Paul, the safari camp's senior guide. "But there's only been one serious incident with a crocodile in these parts. A croc pulled a girl out from the front of a dugout canoe on the other side of the river five years ago.”"
