Join us for our family winter vacation in Canada as we meet up with Audrey’s family and Togo the German Shepherd to spend the holiday season and Christmas together at large cabin located in Seeley’s Bay, Ontario not too far from Kingston. Whenever we’re traveling abroad the one thing we miss most about Canada is our family and friends. Having a chance to spend quality time with them is something we truly relish when we’re back home in Canada.
With this in mind we decided to embrace the spirit of a Canadian winter by renting a large cabin for the entire family to enjoy. Here we enjoyed quality time together by the fire, drinking wine, having conversations, playing board games, cooking meals and eating really well. In terms of heading outside to enjoy winter activities we did a lot of sledding and tobogganing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and walking along with playing with Togo the German Shepherd.
More than anyone else, it was the dog who loved being outside. Overall, it was a wonderful winter vacation in Canada and something we’re considering doing again in the summer for a completely different atmosphere and feel.
What we did during our winter holiday in Canada:
2) Wine Drinking
4) Family Dinners
7) Making Snow
8) Snowy Walks

Our Family Winter Vacation in Canada Video Transcript:
Hey guys. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. You’re probably going to be watching this video several months down the line. Yep. It might even be springtime but we wanted to make a video of our winter holidays here in Canada. And show you what that is like. Yeah, so basically we finished our travels I think it was December 10th. We came back from Italy and we spent a couple of weeks at home in Brampton.
Originally we were going to go to Florida. We were. This was like a few months ago that was our original plan but then we decided like you know what? There has been some bad weather down there this year and we decided why don’t we embrace a Canadian winter. It was actually decided for us when our airbnb host canceled our reservation.
Oh yeah that is right. I forgot that small detail. My family started looking for other possibilities and they settled on a cottage here up north. We’re in Seeley’s Bay so that is like three hours east of Toronto. Near Kingston and then a half hour north in the woods basically. It is not far at all from Kingston and it is a massive house. It has got three levels. We’ve got a really big ground level, we’ve got an upstairs and of course we’ve got a basement. The great thing about this particular vacation with family is that everyone is here. All of your sisters are here. The dog is here. Togo is here.
And it is just been great. We’ve really been embracing the winter. We’ve been going outside doing all kinds of things. Chasing the dog, playing fetch with the dog, also tobogganing. We’re doing snowshoeing. We’re going to be maybe even snowboarding. I think your sisters are coming back with their snowboards. Back with snowboards. Snowboards and then just to have fun we’ve all kind of been huddling around the fire playing games, talking, drinking lots of wine. It has just been wonderful.
We’ve had a lot of family time and we’re basically just going to show you what our whole experience has been like. This video is going to be all about the holidays. We’re here in this cottage for 8 days and we’re basically going to show you what we get up to.
We’re going to say it on two. One, two, three. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Woo!
