Gear - Jack Wolfskin Women’s Jacket
It’s not easy to come across a good quality winter jacket and having experienced Canadian winters for the 12th time in a row now, I’ve gone through lots of jackets that attempt to keep me warm during the harsh season. Some fulfill the style category while failing in the warmth department. I think it’s true to say that unless you pay a lot of money, you’re not likely to find a warm and functional winter jacket that can outlast -20 degree Celsius temperatures. This jacket is quite pricey, but boy is it worth it. First impression was that I liked the ...Read More
Gear - Kora Yak Wool Base
Before I even received this baselayer I was very excited at the prospect of using and reviewing it. This is the first time that yak wool has been developed into a high performance fabric for outdoor use and at the moment it sounds like it’s a sustainably produced, cruelty free product that can also make a significant contribution to the local economy in an area of Asia that seems to need it. Note, I say ‘seems to’, as it’s uncertain from the website just exactly where the Yak wool is farmed (Tibet is mentioned, but not in a way...Read More
Restaurant - Marcel's, Toronto
This year marks the 30th Anniversary of Marcel’s and throughout that time their owner says that they’ve continued to serve what the French cook and eat. ”It is not pretentious,” he claims, “it’s just the freshest ingredients purchased daily at the market and placed in the hands of chefs who have the talent and philosophy to be innovative without resorting to trickery. We believe the only difference between France and Marcel’s Bistro is a few thousand miles and a flight of stairs!” Hundreds of regular...Read More
Three of us from Trek and Run – myself, Lamia and Kesnia – saw this show, which has just a week left to run here in Toronto. Here are a few of our thoughts, with more in-depth reviews following below…“The final act…was executed into such a meaningful and terrifyingly vivid performance that it haunted me for days after. Leaving the theater I felt temporarily unable to express any feelings regarding the play for the power, relevance and fragility of what I had witnessed that night should not, and indeed...” Read More
Event - Toronto Zoo 3km
I've run with the Canada Running Series people before, at their Toronto Waterfront Marathon in 2012. The organisation was great and there was a good vibe about the whole event so since I was in Toronto for a month this winter I had a look at their website to see if they had anything going on locally during this time. As it happens, they had several runs that you'd call either training or fun runs and one them caught my eye. Here's what the website had to say about the 'Move Your Paws for the Polar Bear Cause' 3km... Read More
Gear - KEEN Betty Boot 11
When I was a five years old I was handed some postcards collected by my grandfather in North Africa during World War 11. They were created from an orientalist standpoint especially for the western market and I loved them. Taking elements of what we expected the exotic Arab culture to be like they condensed them into scenes full of men smoking pipes whilst lazing about on large cushions, surrounded by dark-skinned beauties and sheltered by large, ornate tents, palms trees and the desert. As a very young....Read More
