What to Do in Kootenay National Park in Winter

Kootenay National Park, located in southeast British Columbia, is one of four national parks that make up the Canadian Rocky Mountain Parks World Heritage Site. When you drive Highway 93 – the only major highway through the park you get the feeling that much of the park remains untrampled and unexplored. Steep mountains, waterfalls galore, canyons, beautiful rivers and even a hot spring are all here waiting to be discovered.Kootenay National Park is a popular destination in summer with several world-class hiking trails including the challenging but beautiful multi-day Rockwall Trail. In winter, when driving can be treacherous, there are fewer things to do, largely because access to many trails is through avalanche-prone country, but what is available to the visitor is outstanding.Getting i...

Is There Anything to See in Piazza Armerina, Sicily?

After hearing such rave reviews of Villa Romana del Casale, I just knew I had to try to visit when in Sicily. To make that happen, the easiest way to get there seemed to be from a place called Piazza Armerina. This town in central Sicily isn’t especially well-known, with bigger cities like Enna and Caltanissetta drawing most of the attention. However, this modest town does get occasional visitors who stop in as they travel to the nearby Roman site. All of this is to say that I didn’t give much thought to the town itself before visiting Piazza Armerina. Going in blind, I had no idea whether there was any sights to see in Piazza Armerina. With a free afternoon after I arrived in town, I decided to take a peek and find out. I’ll freely admit up front that it’s not the most impressive pl...

The 3+ BEST Hammock Pillows (Reviews) in 2020

After using dozens of hammock pillows over the years it’s the ENO ParaPillow that I think is the best option for most hammock campers. In addition to being comfortable and lightweight, it packs down into a small, 10-ounce roll so it’s easy to bring along on your next backpacking trip. Using a dedicated hammock pillow makes it more comfortable and results in a better quality of sleep during the night. While it does add a bit of weight to your pack, the extra comfort is totally worth it! In this post we’ll take a look at the ENO ParaPillow and some other options for pillows to take with you hammock camping.

Bow Valley Provincial Park – A Year Round Destination

Bow Valley Provincial Park, less than an hour’s drive west of Calgary, is a great year-round destination. The park is blessed with a varied landscape that includes a section along the glacier-fed Bow River at the confluence of the Kananaskis River, grasslands, boreal forest and a bit of the front range of the Canadian Rockies. In summer Bow Valley Provincial Park is a wonderful place to go camping (though be prepared for some highway and train noise), hiking, horseback riding and kayaking. Until the snow flies sometime in fall you can continue to hike and bike the quiet roads. Come winter, go for a snowshoe or even a cross-country ski, though don’t visit with the expectation of track-set trails. In spring, the park is ideal for an easy walk. Bow Valley Provincial Park is irregularly shaped...

A Walking Tour of Bath – Discovering its Historic Treasures

Georgian crescents, Roman baths, and Palladium styled houses, wrapped around by rolling countryside, make up the UNESCO listed heritage city of Bath Spa (Bath). Snuggled in the picturesque Cotswold, tales of the miracle healing powers of Bath’s thermal springs, which supposedly cured Prince Bladud’s leprosy, are sure to spark your intrigue. Although no historical evidence remains, legend has it that Bath came into existence in 9th century BC during the rule of Prince Bladud. He named it ‘Sul,’ after a Celtic Goddess of sacred water. The recorded history, however, starts nine hundred years later with the Romans.  They called it Aquae Sulis to recognize the healing hot springs of Bath, building an extensive network of underground thermal saunas. Along with this, they also made a temple dedi...
