Well, October came and went and with it so did the lovely Alyssa Paterson. After getting a little turned around, I found her at a quaint little cafe located just off of a very rainy Budapest street. It had been almost a year since we’d last seen each other, so obviously, there was lots of excited loudness as we caught up over hot chocolate and lattes. Continue reading Thunder Bay Meets Budapest
Well, the last 30 days really have been a whirlwind. I left my job at Goway after 5 years, packed up my apartment and went road tripping with my Momma across Ontario to Thunder Bay for 10 days of visiting before jetting across the Atlantic.
I’ve got to say, leaving home the afternoon of the 9th of September brought on all the feels. It wasn’t quite the same as 8 years ago when my family took me to the airport to bid me farewell for my year away in Australia. This felt different. I am different. And the situations I am leaving behind is completely changed. Leaving was harder this time and there was a lots of tears. Continue reading Here We Go!
This weekend I got to play the tourist in my own country. Dave’s parents came over from England for a visit so we took them out to Niagara Falls for a day of world famous sightseeing.
The weather was perfectly gorgeous and clear with the sun shining down illuminating all the summer colours of the area.
As always, the Canadian side didn’t let us down. Continue reading Canada Vs. America
For my 30th birthday I was eager to spend the day doing an epic day hike. If I were in Thunder Bay I know exactly where I would have gone. But I’m not and when it comes to the GTA and the great outdoors I’m a little lost so I turned to the facehive of the tinterwebs and got a whole lot of suggestions within an instant.
The majority of my friends were pointing me towards the Hamilton area, famous for it’s 100 waterfalls. I’ve always planned to do some exploring here so I figured that was a good place to start. After a bit of googling I settled on The Spencer Adventure Trail in Dundas. Continue reading Webster Falls, Tews Falls and Dundas Peak
For me, wanderlust is both the longing and the need to go on an adventure to explore a new place, and it is something I have been afflicted with my entire life.
Warning: Side effects of this affliction may include: open mindedness, self reliance, unsatisfaction with the 9-5, and empty bank accounts
If travel was a person she would be the supporting actor to my life’s play. She’s taught me so much and has played such a key role in shaping me into the person that I am today. Continue reading Itchy Travel Feet
Why do I travel? Because I need to.
I have always been an explorer. Even from a very young age.
One of my most vivid early memories was of my panicked father standing on the bridge at Kakabeka Falls as he searching the crashing swells below him. Continue reading Why I Travel
I am a dreamer.
I am an explorer.
I am a climber.
Ever since I was a little girl I have been drawn to high places. It didn’t really matter what – trees, boulders, cliffs – they all called my name, daring me to climb up and behold the wonders that they were saving for me at their summits. And while my illusions of invincibility slowly crumbled away with my youth, this magnetic need to get to the top has never wavered.
I stumbled across this eye-catching feature during an afternoon hike on South Molle Island in Australia. All it took was one look and I knew I had to get to the top. So, I kicked off my flipflops and got to it.
