Travel Mexico

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Hola… Buenos Dias!
Here we go again… down south to Mexico in search of warmth climate during the winter in Canada, because here in Edmonton we already had a first cold spell and lots of snow to shovel. Our destination this time was Baja California and old town of San Jose del Cabo.

Life in Croatia

By: Cody McClain Brown

Why my Punica (mother-in-law) is like a drug dealer
In another life I could cook real meals with fresh ingredients. I entertained friends in a clean house. I woke up daily, made coffee, put on ironed dress-shirts and permanently pressed pants before driving myself to work. I came home, made dinner and tidied up the house. In this other life I was a well on my way to becoming a fully-fledged, competent, functional adult.

How to Use Rollers for training

Going for a spinning class?
It’s winter and it’s cold. It was -20C this morning here in Edmonton. Very often I get asked (at work) what do we cyclist do in the winter time to stay in shape. The answer is simple: we ride rollers! Some people these days would better understand if I said: “I am going for a spinning class” – that’s how it’s called these days.

Edmonton life

Canadian Boom Town: Edmonton
A housing demand that outstrips supply is almost unheard of in the current U.S. market, but conditions are radically different in the Canadian province of Alberta, which is facing a housing shortage and rapid price acceleration.

Travel Alberta

A Cultural City with a Lovable Split-Personality
The U.S.-Canada border, the longest unprotected border in the world, sees 500,000 daily crossings. Our relationship with Canada defines ally. While most Americans are familiar with Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, their sleeping gem, Edmonton, is starting to get the attention it deserves.

Ride into history this summer!
Do you know that Edmonton has its own street car? Last summer during the Fringe festival, because of the parking problem in Old Strathcona, my wife and I decided to ride the streetcar.

Traveling Croatia

Neat little town in Istria
My wife & I came across small town of Svetvinčenat, on our way to Rovinj and rated this as the best place we visited in Istria so far. We stopped there only for half hour, but even this was enough to explore this beautiful little town with a well preserved castle and if I remember correctly 5 churches. The old fort and old town, with its lovely little church and quaint refreshment houses really appealed to us – and there were very few tourists.
