We've recently returned from our Moroccon holiday, and much to our surprise, we didn't really love it. I mean, it was a good break, but it really wasn't what we had hoped for. Why didn't we like it? It wasn't really a relaxing holiday. Everything is a hassle. Walking down the street, you're constantly bombarded to … Continue reading Marrakech + Essaouira
If you missed it, check out Part 1. From YSJ, I connected in Toronto for my layover in Dublin. The layover in Dublin was very much planned. It was a thousand dollars cheaper for me to fly to Dublin one way and buy a cheap Ryanair ticket than to fly directly to London Gatwick. It … Continue reading Expat Journals – Part 2
My hometown is Saint John, New Brunswick. I was born & raised on the west side of the city and lived there until I went to university in 2004. After I graduated and moved back to SJ, I relocated to the uptown so I could be closer to work, friends and pubs. When I'm travelling … Continue reading YSJ
One of my favourite parts of wedding planning, was deciding where we would honeymoon. We knew we wanted to go somewhere tropical and likely all inclusive. I've never been to an all inclusive resort, but my husband had many times and easily convinced me it was a good idea. I was a bit apprehensive about … Continue reading Wedding Planning (Pt. 5) – Planning Your Honeymoon
I recently blogged about my dislike for Milan, Italy. Rome is everything Milan wasn't. I honestly was so pleasantly surprised when I turned up in Rome. I have to admit, I did have a bit of reservation based on my Milan experience, but Rome totally blew me away. I stayed in an Airbnb that was artistic and well-kept on the ground … Continue reading Weekend Break: Rome
Aside from money related questions, I was often asked if I feel unsafe travelling alone. Yes, I sometimes do feel unsafe, both abroad and at home. The solution to this is to not just stay in the house and never leave, but to do things at your comfort level. I've always operated on "gut feeling," … Continue reading Safety as a Solo Female Traveller
There's an article circulating on social media that I first saw back in 2015 explaining why some people may have an inherent desire to travel - a wanderlust gene, so to speak. Basically, the article is saying that there are some people who don't have a desire to leave the comforts of their own space/home/life, and are … Continue reading Are We Predisposed to Wanderlust?
It's been ages since I've done any real solo travel, but it was something I used to do rather frequently. Since I've met my husband, he and I have done all of our travel together, with the exception of 1 trip I did back to Canada this past year. Up until I met him, solo … Continue reading Solo Travel
My husband and I spent Easter bank holiday weekend in Dubrovnik, with a side trip to Bosnia & Herzegovina, (read more about our Easter trip to the Vatican two years ago). We dropped our pooch off to the boarders on Wednesday night as we needed to be at the airport super early on Thursday. We … Continue reading 3 Days in Dubrovnik + Bonus Trip
One of my biggest passions in life is travel. From a young age, I remember fawning over far flung destinations. Dreaming of riding trains through Europe, swimming in crystal clear water off an island somewhere tropical, eating fruit freshly picked from trees whilst getting sun kissed skin somewhere near the equator. Growing up, it all … Continue reading My relationship with travel.
