I drove from Calgary to Banff on my own, and it was definitely perilous. The thing is, everywhere you look is so DAMN BEAUTIFUL that I couldn’t focus on the road, and I kept trying to take some photos which was downright life-threatening. (Kind of worth it, though, but definitely DON’T do that.) Continue reading “The Road to Banff”→
Confession: I didn’t even know about Tofino before I went to Vancouver and just about everybody told me I had to go there. I’m so glad they did, because it was definitely one of the highlights of my trip in West Canada. Continue reading “Tofino – British Columbia”→
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”→
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”→
Last week I was in Toronto for the first leg of my one-month trip through Canada, and it wasn’t my first time visiting so I decided to spice things up and seek a few different and beautifully weird things through the city. Continue reading “6 Weird Things I Did in Toronto”→
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”→
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:
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.
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”→
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”→
I’m back from my annual family to Gaspésie and I’m exhausted! The weather was awesome so we did a lot of outdoors—which was double awesome, but now I want to sleep forever. Continue reading “Gaspésie, Québec”→
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.
That is so nice! I want to thank Lara so much for the nomination! Everybody go check out her awesome blog, The Blackberry Season, about lifestyle and travelling; it is so well written and her talent for photography will make you jealous (in a good way, really).
I’m super happy that the great Matea nominated me for this travel tag–check out her awesome blog here. I know it’s been a while since I posted about travelling, so this is the golden opportunity for me to do so!
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!
