This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Vancouver Here I Come…

April, 24, 2014

I wish! Actually, it’s the one-year anniversary of when the Canada International Film Festival awarded me the Royal Reel Award for my short film But I Do. That trip was when my love for Canada began!


Shortly after winning the award, I was a guest on a national Canadian show produced by Shaw TV…

and got to dish about men with the hilarious comedian Patrick Maliha and glamorous host Fiona Forbes. I love my job!

I wish I could take a road trip to Vancouver right now, but I have too many pending responsibilities. So, instead, I’m going to divulge some of my favorite haunts there.


Get ready for the good weather, because when it comes, Kits Beach beckons the beautiful. I’m not just talking about the sea and the sunsets. This place is a Beautiful People attractor. Those who flock here aren’t just good looking, they’re friendly and charismatic. If you go, expect to receive several greetings and invitations.

And the restaurant across the street isn’t called the LOCAL Public Eatery for nothing. This IS where the locals hang out to soak in a sociable vibe and delicious comfort food.


Then there’s my favorite breakfast spot…Back Forty. You know the above sign is calling out to you, Gorgeous!


The eatery is known for their egg dishes, but you probably already guessed that from the pic.


And I hope they never stop putting drinks in mason jars. It just wouldn’t be Back Forty without that.
