Top 5 Things to Do in Vancouver

DSC00540

Last month, I spent a week in Vancouver and it definitely wasn’t enough. I know I’ll have to go back to BC one day to explore more cities and nature. (In a dream trip, I’m driving across Canada in a van.) But for now, here’s my top 5 to do in Vancouver! Continue reading “Top 5 Things to Do in Vancouver”

Waking Up in a Tent with this View

DSC01233

Last night I arrived in Banff and camped on my own for the first time. It was a little bit scary, to be honest. (I’m such a wimp.) I was awaken in the middle of the night by the rustling of the bag in which I keep my shoes, right outside my tent. I opened my eyes wide, convinced someone was trying to rob me, only to see a squirrel staring at me. Continue reading “Waking Up in a Tent with this View”

European Countries I’ve Visited

world-1264062_1280

So this morning I was playing around with interactive maps where you can enter the places you’ve visited, like an online scratch map. I wanted to see how much of Europe I had actually covered, because I felt like I’d done a pretty good part of it, and MY OH MY WAS I WRONG. Continue reading “European Countries I’ve Visited”

Montréal, Québec

Problem: Last week, I went to Montréal with a list of things to do, and I came back with an even bigger list of things to do the next time I go.

This seems to happen everytime I travel somewhere, but in Montréal, there really is a lot to do. Anyway, here’s what I did in only a few days.

5 Places I Want to See Again

There are many places on my bucket list (the whole world) and I try to focus on new places to visit as much as I can, but today I want to take a pause and think about a few of my favorite places in the world. Places I would go back to without a second thought, given the chance. Here they are:

It might look small on a map, but there’s tons of things to do in Croatia, and I only got to visit a few cities when I went. I did visit the Plitvice Lakes twice, and I would totally visit them again. Continue reading “5 Places I Want to See Again”

My Travel Plans for Summer 2017

Travel Plans

I try to make as many trips as I can through a year, but sadly, it’s hard to save up enough money to achieve ALL of my dreams (I have quite a few). That’s why last year wasn’t that wild in the travel department. This year isn’t going to be a whole year around the globe either, but at least a summer through Canada.

And Canada is a big country, to say the least.

Here’s where I plan to go.

My Travels of 2016

wolf-hound-1

You’ll have noticed, 2016 wasn’t a big travel year for me. I worked and studied a lot, and I sure crave and plan for 2017 to be ALL about travelling, but that’s not what this post is about. This is about the few trips I found the time to make last year, usually not too far from home, but nothing short of amazing. Continue reading “My Travels of 2016”

Weekend in New York

dscf7680

As some of you may know, my sister and I won a free trip to New York in November, and I made this very elaborate list of things to do in the Big Apple but there’s just SO MUCH things to do in this amazing city, one weekend wasn’t enough. Still, here’s what I managed to do. Continue reading “Weekend in New York”

5 Reflections + Quotes on Travel

5 of my Reflections

When I don’t like the girl that I am, I catch a plane and leave her behind. Not once have I come back from a trip the same as when I left.

 

 

Travelling is discovering new things, but also reminiscing about old dreams, and realizing they still matter.

Biking/Camping Trip Checklist

HALDEN

Lately, I’m deep into the preparation of several trips, including two biking tours during which I’ll camp on the road with no electricity or technology whatsoever. Needless to say, it requires a lot of preparation. Good thing is: I LOVE CHECKLISTS. So I thought I’d let you know what I think is essential to bring, in case some are thinking about doing a similar trip.

My Travel Plans

Travel Plans
It’s been a while since I travelled—I mostly post about past trips and books lately—but it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped dreaming about potential travel adventures. That’s pretty much all I dream about, really. Travelling.

(Through space, and also time, FYI.)

So I thought I’d share my travel plans for the rest of the year, and see if some of you have any recommendations about those destinations. When to go, where to stay, what to do? Let me know if you’ve been and how you liked it!

What I Remember of Dublin

Dublin, Ireland. 2012.

I remember finding a very cheap way to get to Dublin (£35) to Dublin from Glasgow, Scotland, that included three buses, a ferry, a taxi, and that took over 20 hours of terribly uncomfortable naps.

Scotland in Pictures

DSCF6602
I’ve been working on a post about my trip to Scotland for a while—I have, honest, I really have—but it just seems like all the words that I write don’t do justice to the journey. Incidentally, I also end up drowning myself in tears of nostalgia every time I reminisce about that trip more than five minutes, so I decided to just post a few pictures of my favourite things I did over there. Hope you enjoy!

Free Things To Do in Edinburgh

DSCF6486

Scotland is amazing. Amazing sceneries, amazing music, amazing culture, amazing accent. I fell in love with it the moment I set a toe in this fabulous country. Yet through all the magical landscapes I saw, there’s one thing I had to visit twice, and that really made an impression on me: The Elephant House.

Yes. Yes.

Because of J.K. Rowling.

I’m a book geek, sue me.
