For as long as I can remember I always remember seeing that one photo of Lake Louise on Banff, it’s a magical photo that gets shared on IG, FB, you name it every year. However this was the frozen part of the year I found some cheap flights to Calgary and decided to take the dive into the winter cold. It was well worth it and a great experience to check out Canada during the Winter months. Also I’ve never been to Calgary so was excited to check it out in the first place.
So hitting up Calgary and Banff these next couple days and the first stop is of course the Calgary Zoo! This place was epic, total winter wonderland and every animal was out! Check out the quick 2 minute video I made on the experience instead of some photos. I’d recommend going to the Calgary Zoo during a winter wonderland event for sure, 0 people and it’s beautiful. Also they have gluten free bread, gluten free desserts, and a variety of other gluten free menu items. We flew United 737 from Houston, Texas.
Used my Sony A7III 4K. Tomorrow heading to Banff, that should be super super dope.
So instead of making a super long post I’ll do a video photo vlog of my journey to Toronto below. I went last year during the Christmas holidays and it was beautiful and a pretty dope spot. This time around it wasn’t as magical but still overall Toronto as a city is great and I’d prob go there everyday If I lived next door! Check out my captures below.
So this is basically the entire reason for the trip, “Hey want to go get drunk at the Food and Wine Festival in Orlando?” I mean who says no. It’s always a damnit let’s go book it kind of situation. So let’s go explore the gluten free side of the Food & Wine Festival. I didn’t document it nearly as hardcore as I usually do but I still put in some effort of photographing food for myself.
I haven’t had time to update weekly right now so I will be posting all the adventures I’ve had during the months of June through September. Las Vegas, Dallas, Little Rock, and some gluten free fun. So check out the photos below.

First trip to Europe was a success and great adventures were had. Explored a lot of things I never though I’d see in this decade and got to visit another Disneyland Park! Now I’m planning on going back already, the only thing that delayed me was the 7 or 8 hour journey! Now I know to just buy an inflatable seat cushion off Amazon next time and I’m good to go. Premium Economy is the way to go, first class for $6000 for only 7 hour flight just doesn’t make sense to me, but I understand if you got it, spend it. Let’s roll out.
So on the day before we flew back home we adventured to the famous Louvre Museum which was pretty awesome. There was however a bunch of negatives, it was super hot, sweaty hot in that place lol, also after about being there for an hour it filled up to Disney World New Years Eve style packed. It was insane about the amount of people there. It was un-enjoyable and we planned on spending hours there, instead we hung out for about an hour literally. It was that packed and hot in the place we bailed. The things you don’t read online about the Louvre, also the 100,000 people in line to see the Mona Lisa, just because it got stolen once and a shitty painting if you ask me. There are a lot more interesting things there. Anyways lets start off walking to this amazing pastry shop that was gluten free (of course it didn’t open on time) it’s Paris! They do whatever the fuck they want!
L’église de la Madeleine (French pronunciation: [leɡliːz də la madəlɛn], Madeleine Church; more formally, L’église Sainte-Marie-Madeleine; less formally, just La Madeleine) is a Roman Catholic church occupying a commanding position in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. The Madeleine Church was designed in its present form as a temple to the glory of Napoleon’s army. To its south lies the Place de la Concorde, to the east is the Place Vendôme, and to the west Saint-Augustin, Paris.
Ok time to finally explore Paris, after the Disneyland attraction got out of the way it was time to see what everyone was talking about. It also happened to be “May Day” which was when all the riots were in full force, however we didn’t see any riots. Just police officers blocking off alot of tourist attractions, many ambulances driving places, and lots of tank looking trucks. Paris was kind of like I expected but it did grow on me, it was dirty like NYC but had a MUCH better charm to it. You get the France feel in the park, but actually being in Paris was a much more authentic experience.
So at the end of day 5 we flew British Airways to Paris to spend the next 3 days exploring Paris, Disneyland Paris, and to find some gluten free baguettes! It ended up being an awesome journey and even cooler place than I thought. Disneyland Paris has the top ranking of ride themes in my opinion so far. The food eh not so much. Check it out in the video vlog below! I’ll have to say it’s worth a visit to Disneyland Paris, not as magical as home base in Orlando but still, Paris has it’s charms. Also this video encompasses 2 days, since on the 29th we did the original Disneyland Paris Park, and then on the 30th we did the Studios Park which was eh, ok.
