For my 2016 travel recap I will be posting the places I visited and blogged for that year.  I only blogged about 3 places in 2016, because half of the year I am already here in Canada and I did not blog anymore. I did some season recap but I posted it on 2017. 

 

My original travel plan for 2016 was to travel to 2 international countries and 3 local places in the Philippines. Since all my travels are booked in advance, the last 2 Philippine travel that I booked got cancelled because of my move here in Canada. I sometimes regret cancelling those travels because I am not sure If I will still be able to visit those places when I go back home. Those are well planned travels with complete itinerary but I must cancel it because I need to be here before winter start to allow myself to adjust with the weather. I also don’t want to postpone my move until after winter because it would be a very long wait.

 

For 2017, I did not set any travel goals. All my travels are spontaneous and planned on the last minute. By 2018, I will again start my travel goals so I can tick off some countries that I want to visit from my bucket list. In the meantime, let me show you my 2016 Travel Recap.

2016 is the last year that I attended events in Cebu. Attending event is my favorite part of being a blogger because I get to see and try products before everyone else, plus I get to share the experience to my readers who would be interested in checking out the newest happening in the Metro.

 

Big thanks to A-list PR, Events and Advertising, PR executive Emma Villarente, Henny Sescon for inviting me to these events. Here are the recap of the 11 events that I attended from January to August 2016. Click the blog title for complete blog entry.

This year, Canada hosted a spectacular event called MOSAÏCANADA 150 to celebrate 150 years of history, values, culture and arts in Canada. When my friend told me about this, we made plans to go there before it ends on October 15, because this is not something that we can visit next year. As far as I know, this is only for this year to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.

After a month of planning, we finally decided to drive from Montreal to Gatineau to see this enchanting garden. Located in Jacques-Cartier Park, this one-kilometer stroll through 40 fantastic horticulture arrangements left us in total astonishment. All 30 plant-based sculptures representing Canada’s provinces and territories add meaning to all these masterpieces.

Without further ado, let me take you to a fantastic tour.

Representing Quebec! The moment I saw the Quebec flag on the three boats shaped like fleur-de-lis, I knew I’ve reached our province sculpture.

(Outfit Details: RW&Co top, Forever 21 scarf, Ardene warmer leggings, Guess boots, and Aldo bag)

The biggest of all garden sculpture is Mother Nature, but I call it Te Fiti from Moana.

I have so much respect to the brilliant people behind this because they’ve made my childhood dream come true. It was reported that the Quebec government invested about $2 million for this event, so no wonder it was made to perfection. If you are living in Montreal, Gatineau or Ottawa, I would highly suggest for you to visit this place for a once in a lifetime experience. I hope you enjoyed my photo tour as much as I do in person.

 

MOSAÏCANADA 150 is located at:
Jacques-Cartier Park, south end
164, Laurier street, Gatineau (Quebec) J8X 3V8

Open from June 30 to October 15, 2017
Opening Hours : Everyday from 10 am to 7 pm
Entrance Fee: FREE!!!
