It doesn't matter whether I'm going 5 minutes or 50 hours away, I adore seeing new places. I feel as though travelling stretches across all types of destinations, both near and far. Here is my chance to share with you some things that I have learned along the way, from my adventures.

Last winter, I had a chance to visit about five different Christmas markets. For anyone who has never experienced a Christmas market before, they are basically parts or a town or city that are set aside for Christmas-themed stalls. There are typically lights and decorations, vendors of all sorts of unique items, as well quite a few stalls for selling food. 

Because Christmas last year fell around the same time as I was travelli...

In the last few years, a new style of travel accommodation has begun to emerge. Hotels can be expensive, especially when staying in the city, hostels don't offer much privacy and Bed & Breakfasts aren't exactly what everyone is looking for. In 2008, a couple of friends launched a unique idea offering a new option for lodging, which over time has become a great success.

Starting in San Franscisco, Airbnb was developed to allow p...

How many times have you sat around wondering what to do? You've got a whole day off with nothing at all planned. It seems that this happens to me quite often.

I work 5 days a week, during the evenings, with Mondays and Tuesdays off. This pretty much means that whenever the rest of the world isn't working, I am, and vice versa. Most community events take place on evenings or weekends, when most of the people I know are off. It f...

As the weather begins to cool off and the sun sets sooner, we begin to realize that summer is slowly winding down. As we try to hold onto our last moments of this beautiful season, we can look forward in anticipation because of the great things that this upcoming season provides. 

For many, that looks like the changing of colours in the trees, apple cider and maybe even pumpkin picking. As for me here, I get to experience my fi...

About a year back, I took one of the  most unique bus trips of my life. Living at the time in Northern France, I decided that I would take a low cost bus line from Lille, France, to London, England. One of the neatest things about this bus trip, is that because England is an island separated from the rest of Europe by the English Channel, we got to make use of the Eurotunnel.

Living in Lille, I was familiar with the Eurostar, t...

If you're no stranger to my blog, you probably remember that last year, I made the decision to move to France. It had been something that I wanted to do at some point in my life, and I eventually made a it a priority to go, never wanting it to become a regret of something I never made happen. 

The craziest thing is that I had given myself a deadline of moving to France in January, 2018, but for the longest time, I had...

We are in a time in life where all we can see is everyone projecting their "best life," especially in the world of travel. There are a lot of unspokens that take place in the travel world and today I'd like to open up your eyes to one of the biggest challenges.

This week, I thought it would be fun to do something a little bit unique. While I was away in France, I decided to start a Twitter account, in order to document some of my impressions and experiences during my time there. In order to give you a little bit of insight and maybe a few chuckles, I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite funny and weird moments that I Tweeted.

Being Canadian:  

When there is still much r...

While living abroad in France, this past year, I became aware of many cultural differences between the things which I observed there versus what I was used to back home. To be honest, it was a bit of an eye opener as to how much our North American society is incredibly focused on money and material things.  Realizing this, has helped me to understand that where and how people choose to spend their time, really emphasizes the t...
