Lori’s CTV Segment on Valentines walkabouts with hot chocolate endings!

I dropped into CTV Morning Live this morning to share some Valentine’s walkabouts that end with hot chocolate (is it Hot Chocolate Festival all month long)! Check out the segment below and find some gorgeous spots along the Elbow River to explore, a fantastic new stairway with big downtown views in Mount Royal, and then enter to win my book, tasty macarons, hot chocolates, and pastries from Yann Haute Patisserie! Follow me on Instagram to enter! The walks in the segment are a mix of the Sandy Beach Route, The Garrison, Altadore walk, the suggested detour through Bel-Aire, Mayfair, and Elboya to the Stanley park Route and a bit of the Roxboro walk to get to 4th Street and the MIssion area. Mix and match to create new walks every time you head out!

Oh yeah, grab a copy of my book (discounts for multiples!) and at stores all over the city. List of retailers on the website. Let’s go walkabout!

CTV Escarpment and Art Walks in Calgary!

I dropped into CTV Morning Live today to share some colourful Escarpment and Art walkabouts along the Bow River! The walk routes in my book, Calgary’s Best Walks, are about 5-7 km but I also make it easy to combine walks so you can walk longer or do a linear walk and transit back. Today I combined walks 15 and 17 and lead viewers from Sunnyside to Crescent Heights, Bridgeland to East Village, and back along the Bow River. Grab a signed copy of my book here or at bookstores, shops and cafés all over the Calgary.
