The I-Wrote-a-Book-and-I-Need-to-Get-Away-to-Refuel Trip

Last month, I finished the first draft of my WIP, and it was really intense. At one point, I wrote 17 000 words in just a couple of days. Needless to say, I felt really empty and kind of depressed once it was over.

I wanted so badly to go back to the world of my book and write more dialogues between my characters, but I knew I had to get away from the story so I could come back to it with a fresh, editing eye.

So I went to the mountains.

More specifically, to Gaspésie National Park, in Quebec. Here’s my hiking/emptying-my exhausted-brain trip in photos. Continue reading “The I-Wrote-a-Book-and-I-Need-to-Get-Away-to-Refuel Trip”

My 5 (Unusual) Travel Goals of 2019

Almost two months into 2019, and I still haven’t had time to really sit down and plan out where I want to go this year. (AND PLANNING IS LITERALLY MY PASSION SO THIS IS PROOF LIFE HAS BEEN BUSY AF PEOPLE.)

Top 5 Travel Moments of 2018

I can’t believe that 12 months ago, I was starting off the new year on a beach in Mexico, celebrating with amazing people from around the world, unaware of what this year was going to be like. (It rocked.)

2018 was a roller-coaster of emotions and even though I definitely had my downs, the ups beat them all. But now the year is coming to an end, and we’ve reached that part of the year that I think I love best: looking back at the awesome memories and dreaming of the adventures to come.

Here’s my Top 5 Travel Moments of 2018: Continue reading “Top 5 Travel Moments of 2018”

How I Plan my Trips – Travel More Series

We all want to get the most of our trips. We worked all year to afford them, we only have 10 days to visit as much of our dream city as we can, and we feel a little overwhelmed at the idea of doing this right.

Where to start?

I used to plan every single detail of my trips, and to be honest the more I travel the less I plan (if I plan at all, like I did in Nicaragua). Nothing is going to go exactly as you expected anyway. And it’s always great to be flexible not to miss out on awesome opportunities that will arise out of nowhere.

But the way I plan a trip can be divided in THREE CATEGORIES. Here they are: Continue reading “How I Plan my Trips – Travel More Series”

How I Travel So Much

The Travel More series was inspired by Marica, who asked me a few questions about my travel habits that I hope I’ll be able to answer in my next three posts! (Thank you so much for your interest and your loyal follow of my blog, Marica! You’re the  best!)

Before I jump into this, I’d like to share with you something that annoys me.

What annoys the hell out of me: When I announce to my friends that I’m going to, say Ireland, and they all go: “OH MY GOD YOU’RE SO LUCKY!”

A Week of Traveling Feels Like a Year of Living

For those of you who don’t know, I’m in Europe! I landed in Paris on the 9th and my brain still hasn’t registered that I’m here because Eiffel Tower, Swiss Alps, and Tuscan sun in less than a week? How could that ever be for real?

And yet.

I’ll be posting about my trip in more details when I’m back home, but for now, I wanted to give you an overview of what I’ve seen so far so here it is:
