Foggycat Bubble Tea: Thie iced earl grey milk tea was decent and had a nice tea to milk balance. The pearls were soft and chewy.
Stevie was a blind cat but that didn’t stop him from being an incredibly sweet and affectionate cat – getting around the play area, on to tables, and falling asleep on our palms!

Autostrada Osteria is a casual osterie on Main Street, Vancouver between East 32nd and 33rd. The Co-Owner and Head Chef come from La Quercia, founder of La Pentola and co-owner of Cinara. The menu focuses on quality ingredients, fresh handmade pasta and few regional wines. The 30 seater room is tiny and you will often feel like you are “sharing” a table with the people to the left and right of you. I recommend making a reservation and requesting for the booth seat by the aisle.
The name “Autostrada” – is an expressway in Italy.
I came here with my University BFF to celebrate my birthday. To start, the creamiest and fluffiest burrata from Italy (MP) and house-baked daily Focaccia 6.
Caesar 13: To add a bit of green to our carbo-loaded evening, we opt for a Caesar salad with anchovies. Heavy on the salt.
Strozzapreti 21: duck and anchovy ragu.
Garganelli Con Salsiccia 22: Fennel sausage, peas and pecorino.
There is nothing more indulgent and comforting than fresh pasta over wine and good company! The portions are perfect without leaving you feeling stuffed and bloated.
Next time, order the classic cacio e pepe, consisting of Pecorino, black pepper and butter. You’re welcome!
Cuisine: Italian, Pasta

The long Whistler winter is drawing to a close, and the long sunny days of summer are now just weeks away. While Canada’s popular ski resort might not be the first destination that comes to mind when planning a summer getaway, the months of June, July and August now attract an equal number of visitors as their winter equivalents.
While the winter months offer snow sports and apres-ski, summer travel in Whistler promises an altogether more laid-back feel. While outdoor thrills and stress-busting activities can still be found in abundance, Whistler’s legendary mountain spas draw visitors from all around to enjoy a relaxing summer BC-style.
Here’s our guide to the best spas and top activities to inspire!
WHISTLER SPA RETREATS
The Spa at Four Seasons Resort
The Spa at Four Seasons Resort tops the list when it comes to Whistler spa retreats, having been named the #1 hotel spa in Canada at the Travel and Leisure’s “World Best Awards”. You won’t find a more quintessentially Canadian signature treatment! Consisting of a maple syrup and brown sugar scrub, followed by a clay body wrap and finished up with an Argan oil hair treatment, this is a treatment not to be missed! The spa is family-friendly too, so if you’re travelling with kids check out the kiddo specific manicures and gentle facials. There’s also a comprehensive offering of sports massages, custom facials and nail-care services designed for the active man.
The Spa at Nita Lake Lodge
The Nita Lake Lodge boasts arguably one of the most desirable locations in all of Whistler, and the lakeside spa is the perfect place to relax and recharge. While the rooftop hot tubs offer incredible views, visit the eucalyptus steam room for a truly revitalizing experience. The ultimate HydraFacial experience comes highly recommended. The treatment uses LED light therapy with anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing benefits. Nita Lake is ranked as the number one place to get your relaxation on according to TripAdvisor, and the impressive dining options on site are ideal for grabbing a healthy bite or a more indulgent meal.
Vida Spa at The Fairmont
The Vida Spa boasts an impressive service menu with everything from massage treatments to body wraps on offer. Many of Vida’s treatments are based on the principles of Ayurveda, a 5,000-year old system of holistic Indian medicine. According to Ayurveda, the key to a long and healthy life is achieving a balance between body, mind and spirit. Vida has created its own all natural signature ayurvedic line that is made locally, using treatment ingredients including eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender and sandalwood, so you can even take a few products home with you. The de-stress treatments are most definitely worth checking out, comprising a tension target massage, foot therapy and express massage.
If an outdoor spa that operates a “quiet policy” sounds like your kind of thing, make a beeline for the Scandinave Spa. The spa is located on the edge of Lost Lake and Spruce Grove, and the rustic wooden setting includes an array of massage rooms and saunas, as well as an extensive hydrotherapy offering. Journey through three stages starting with the hot installations made up of eucalyptus steam baths, wood burning sauna and Finnish sauna. Move to the cold installations including Nordic waterfalls and showers, before finishing up in the relaxation areas made up of solariums, outdoor fireplaces and yoga studio.
WANDERLUST 2019 (Aug 1-4th 2019)
Whistler’s most laid-back festival returns this summer, and once again the emphasis for Wanderlust 2019 is all about wellness. The event brings together instructors, speakers and influential figures from around the world to celebrate yoga, meditation, and the outdoors. Top musical acts and DJs provide the soundtrack, while top chefs serve up healthy and delicious culinary treats.
Yoga: If you can’t make it to the Wanderlust festival, don’t worry. Yoga is popular in Whistler at any time of year, and there are plenty of places to get your yoga on. Heli-yoga is popular in these parts too. Take a short helicopter ride to a secluded area of Whistler backcountry and enjoy a practice like no other.
Axe Throwing: Break from the norm and relieve your frustration lumberjack-style, trying your hand at the rapidly-growing sport of axe throwing. This popular Canadian pastime is kind of like darts but with axes, and Forged Axe Throwing is one of the original urban throwing venues. Lumberjills are just as welcome, and the venue has been in the press for its work on engaging and encouraging more women to try their hand at this fun activity. Trust us, there’s nothing more satisfying than sinking a bullseye!
Hiking: A walk in the wilderness is a sure-fire way to relieve stress and see the stunning scenery that British Columbia is renowned for. Hiking in Whistler is a summer essential and the best way to enjoy it is with a guided hike. An experienced guide will not only share their local knowledge but also keep you safe.
Biking: Biking is another hugely popular summer activity in Whistler and there are over 200 trails ready to explore. Hire a bike from a number of places in Whistler village and get your cardio fix while taking it all in.
Fishing: Whether you’re an experienced angler or are yet to pick up a rod, fishing in Whistler is one of the best ways to let off steam. Choose between wading along the shoreline or casting from a boat, enjoying the peace and serenity of Whistler’s lakes and rivers.
