Children’s Wish Foundation Search for Santa – A Holiday Lesson From Chloe

The airplane’s intercom crackled. “Hey everyone! Did you hear that Rudolph got a bad report card?” Everyone on board shook their heads, and a few ‘No!’’s shouted out from the back. “Yeah, it’s true. He went down in History!” It was the first, and possibly the best, of many Christmas jokes that the flight [...]

History, Romance, and Luxury at Roch Castle Hotel

Hilton Cardiff Hotel – Comfort, Convenience and a Castle!

FlyOver Canada – On a Broom?

The kids were spellbound, taking in every word and cackle as Broomelda, FlyOver Canada’s resident witch and headmistress of the Haunted Witches Academy, introduced herself during the pre-flight briefing video. As ghosts flew around the dimly lit, spookily decorated room, the younger kids clung a little tighter to their adults than usual. It’s [...]

It was in the middle of an impromptu dance party that it finally struck me: this place felt like home.
