Oilfields in West Texas

Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea. You can't help but think about oil when you think about Texas, and right in the heart of the Permian Basin you'll find the cities of Midland and Odessa in a sea of pumpjacks and drilling operations. With a little bit of exploring you'll even find a handful of vintage oil derricks around. These are some iconic Texas visuals

Run, Run Rudolph in O'Hare International

As a big fan of Home Alone, it was only fitting to run through the American Airlines wing of O'Hare International while in Chicago, Illinois. American Airlines was actually one of the film's sponsors, hence the brand recognition in the movie. While there's not really much to see here, it's still fun being in familiar spots like this and feeling like you're crossing paths with pop culture.

Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Ontario

When opened in 1929, the Royal York Hotel was the largest hotel and briefly the tallest building in the whole of the British Empire. As one of Canada's grand railway hotels, and located directly across the street from Union Station in downtown Toronto, this luxurious property originally boasted over 1000 rooms and welcomed prominent guests from around the world.

Jaguar in British Columbia

While there are always a lot of variables to consider in what makes the best road trip, a luxury set of wheels certainly never hurts. Earlier this year I drove the new Jaguar E Pace while out filming in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Jaguar E Pace Vancouver BCAs a long time fan of the brand and former owner myself, I was excited to drive my first Jaguar SUV. The E Pace is the compact version of the new F Pace, both of which lean heavily on the sport side of the brand. In short, driving the Jaguar E Pace is a stylish and energetic experience - however, as nice as it is, I do miss some of those interior luxury throwbacks that Jaguar made iconic. Here are a few visuals.
