Come Wander
Waterfalls in Cottage Country

For many of us, the idea of getting to the cottage, pulling up a chair, and spending what precious time we have gazing at the lapping water and soaking up the sun sounds enjoyable. Sitting on the dock, it’s easy to settle into that ‘never want to leave’ feeling, but the Healthy, Happy and Hilarious’ Brit Linton recently ventured off her dock to discover the incredible moments available in cottage country, which she’d previously missed. Brit joined The Wanderer for three full days exploring Haliburton Highlands, where they watched Jim Cuddy perform on a floating stage, climbed to new heights to capture insta-worthy pics, saddled up to explore Algonquin Park, and indulged in local flavours and products. Read her full story here to discover why you, too, should take a break from dock-lounging and try something different.
