Thunder Bay Meets Budapest

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

Webster Falls, Tews Falls and Dundas Peak

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

Itchy Travel Feet

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

12 Things I Learned in New York

New York City. The center of the universe…

And yet somehow, I’d never managed to get there until now! This always surprises people. I’ve traveled around the world more than once, been to over 20 countries and literally spent the last 4 years living just on the other side of the border – but I’d never been to New York? What?! I know, I know – ridiculous.

But I’ve finally made it and the verdict is in Continue reading 12 Things I Learned in New York

Wanderlust Vs Adulting

Over the last several years I’ve had two very strong, mutually exclusive desires:

The ever present and often overwhelming urge to rent a storage locker, pack my Toronto life into it and set out across the globe without a care in the world…

And…

The simultaneous desire to move out of my houseshare and rent myself a beautiful one bedroom “grown up” apartment which I can fill with nice furniture that I don’t’ have to put together myself, with beautifully decorated walls and a dining table I could throw dinner parties on… Continue reading Wanderlust Vs Adulting

Liebster Award!

I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award by An Outcast Wayfarer. She nominated me a few weeks ago (sorry for the delay). I’d never heard of this award so I did some quick googling and the intent quick told me:

“The Liebster Award 2016 is an award that exists only on the internet, and is given to bloggers by other bloggers. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.”

Very Cool! I’ve only been blogging for a few months so it’s pretty exciting to know that some people out there are following and actually reading my stuff. Thanks a lot An Outcast Wayfarer! I highly recommend people check out this wonderful writer’s work. She chooses to stay anonymous so I can’t thank her by name, but her work is really inspirational and incredibly well written! You should follow her too! Continue reading Liebster Award!
