I started writing this article yesterday when Instagram and Facebook were both down for basically the whole day! It didn’t have a huge impact on me as I was at work, but I did notice that my notifications and feed were a bit too quiet. I also still have my blog and email list to communicate with some of my people. It got me thinking about my relationship with Instagram and social media in general.Read More
Last September, I wrote a post on why I travel and my type of travel. After re-reading this post, I want to re-answer that question in this new blog post with six specific responses. As I am planning to travel to either South America or South East Asia this year, I feel this piece is perfect timing.Read More
If it hasn’t been said enough - happy new year everyone!
This year is a big one for me personally, because I turn 30 in March… Gasp. I have many goals, or rather intentions for this year.

Many people have asked me why I like to travel and what type of I practise (e.g. luxury, solo, budget, etc…). Rather than taking a few minutes to give a fully developed answer, I often shrug and smile by saying because it’s fun and I like exploring. I also summarize my type of travel as just wanting to see as much as possible. While that’s true, it’s not the full answer.Read More
There is nothing like scrolling through Instagram and seeing your feed full of colourful travel pictures from those living their best travel life as a blogger, Instagram influencer or the regular person on vacation. Before going away, we live on the Internet in search of quality blog posts so that we can plan our best trip. At any point, video content, either on YouTube or TV shows inspire us and help to understand the world.Read More
One of the most dramatic and rewarding ways to change your life is to live and work abroad. Almost 2 years ago, I left home (Vancouver, Canada) and embarked on a working holiday visa (Tier 5 Youth Mobility Visa) to live and work in Edinburgh, UK. By undertaking this change, I was able to add rich experiences to my life that I wouldn’t have had if I stayed home.Read More
