A peek inside Kingston Penitentiary

Posted by: andrea tomkins In: travel talk

If there’s one Canadian city that has been top of mind across the country this week it’s Kingston, home of The Tragically Hip. I had the good fortune to be on the receiving end of a media invite to see their performance in Ottawa. It was actually my first time seeing them live in concert […]

Dinner at Wooden Heads, Kingston

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human offspring: Emma (24) and Sarah (22). During the day I work as a writer at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
