Life is what’s happened

March 14, 2016

It’s been pretty quiet on the blog front. Normally, I would apologize and feel as though I would have to give my reasoning for what’s been keeping me from blogging, but to be quite honest, the answer is life. Life is what’s happened and I’m not going to apologize for that. Since my last post, […]

Before I became a travel agent and went on an unintentional 15month blogging hiatus, I spoke fondly about the trip my boyfriend and I were taking to celebrate our first anniversary.

California’s Calling my Name

January 6, 2014

I can see myself driving along California’s Pacific Coast Highway with the wind in my hair, the warm rays of the sun kissing my face.  I’d be cruising along those hairpin turns on the edge of a steep cliff, gazing at the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean hundreds of meters below. OR I can […]

As I mentioned in my last blog post, I have finally returned home after 3 long months in Africa.  For the last nearly two weeks I’ve been doing my best to lay low, enjoy the company of my loved ones and catch up on the billions of emails that have gone unresponded to.  I wasn’t […]

Ways of Getting Around Toronto

April 19, 2013

Canadians are constantly asked what Canadian city is their favourite.  Montreal.  Vancouver.  Toronto.  These are usually the top three on anyone’s list.  Toronto, being the nation’s largest – and the fourth largest in North America – has really been working on improving their various transit systems in the last few decades.  There are plenty of […]

Big Island Beach Clean Up

April 3, 2013

It was supposed to be paradise, people are always dreaming of relaxing on the pristine beaches of Hawai’i.  Yet, I looked around, horrified at the mile-long stretch of beach a mere 7 miles from South Point on the Big Island of Hawai’i -what I saw in front of me painted a very different picture.  Everything […]

Learning to Surf in Waikiki

January 29, 2013

Surfing isn’t as easy as movies like Blue Crush or Point Break make it seem.  I know this first hand.  It’s so challenging that I put it on my bucket list because I really wanted to learn to surf.  So when I stumbled upon a trip to Hawaii, I figured why not try learning to […]

How I Stumbled Upon a Holiday in Hawaii

January 22, 2013

“I’m leaving New Zealand, flying first to Sydney, then I’ll get to holiday in Hawaii for two weeks with my friend, Steph – who lives there- before heading to Vancouver for a few days, and then back home to Toronto just in time for Christmas.”  I repeated this same exhausting sentence many times before I […]
