Moncton, New Brunswick: My Best Ways To Explore It
Kayaking through the Hopewell Rocks is one of the best ways to start a trip to Moncton, New Brunswick. First, we head out with Baymount Outdoor Adventures to get up close with rocks formed by tidal erosion. The area is famous for its unique rock features and because it claims the highest tides in the world (the highest have come in as tall as 52-feet). After kayaking, I headed west to Alma, a fishing village at the entrance of Fundy National Park, for lunch at the Alma Boathouse Restaurant and swung by Cape Enrage to catch some of the best views of the Bay of Fundy.

My passion for travel was unlocked when I spent some years living across Europe and South America. I've never been one to shy away from a new adventure, be it swimming with pigs in the Bahamas, bird watching in the Galapagos or Heli-Hiking in British Columbia. And while I used to mostly travel solo, I now like to hit the road with my 4-year-old son, 1-year-old-daughter and husband in tow.

Whether they are petting goats during an Oregon farm stay or making their very own pizza in Idaho, their enthusiasm and joy never fails to remind me of why I love travel.
