“Long Weekend Essentials” as seen on Rogers Daytime

Today, I dropped by Rogers Daytime Ottawa to share my tips on what you should be packing for your long weekend  Labour Day trip! According to a Choice Hotels Canada™ survey, 47% of Canadians say their families find them the most fun while travelling on summer vacation. Having fun as a family is a great way to bring you and your kids together and strengthen family ties. During this segment, I shared my travel essentials that I bring with me when travelling on the road.

It is no surprise that Canadians love to see and do new things when they travel. For all of you looking to save a little money while on the road, head over to eBay Canada, the world’s most vibrant marketplace, offering great value and selection. With over 800 million listings at any given time, it’s easy for you to find new gadgets and accessories for your upcoming family vacation
