Prince Edward Island in the summer has some amazing places, experiences and event to see and attend. From the summer we’ve spent so far, I’ve loved almost every part and event in PEI.

What to do in PEI #10 : Visit and photo St. Dunstan’s Basilica

If you’re wandering through downtown Charlottetown, you’ll find that it’s quaint and somewhat touristy by design. In Canada, there aren’t a super high number of elaborate churches, but Prince Edward Island’s churches have long-established roots in the province’s history and heritage. In many towns, they are the focal point of village and town life.  I’ve visited many churches in the world ... Read More »

What to do in PEI #8 : Go on a PEI Lighthouse Tour

What to do in PEI #8 : Go on a PEI Lighthouse Tour

There’s something really great about lighthouses. It might have to do something with the isolation or being the solitary light in the darkness that led sailors to safety or something more metaphorical but I find remarkable romantic. Along with religious places around the world, I’ve always been fascinated by lighthouses.     I find it’s very easy to drive around ... Read More »

What to do in PEI #6 : Have lunch at the Charlottetown Farmers Market

In Trinidad, we don’t have “Farmers’ Markets” … because all farmers sell their produce at the local markets. As a teenage, I wandered the Chaguanas Market and saw the friendliness, hustle and bustle. I was always guided by the list my mother gave me and little did I know, I was getting my first “foodie” experience, in being able to ... Read More »
