The Complete Guide to New Zealand: North Island

Kia ora! Living in New Zealand just wasn’t enough for me – I have to keep writing about it, too! I fell in love with the country the moment I arrived. Well… two days later once some of the jet lag had worn off. Even […]

My 2019 Year in Review

My 2019 Year in Review

I didn’t intend to write one of these “year in review” things. I usually find them braggy or overly positive. No one’s life is perfect and I don’t like to pretend that mine is. That being said, I had a pretty great year. Some people […]

10 Pros and Cons of Living in Canada

I’m a born and raised Canadian. I say about like “a-boat,” regularly use the term “loonie” in everyday conversation (even if it’s not the right currency), and am constantly saying sorry (heavy on the “o,” of course). That being said, I haven’t lived in Canada […]

How Canadians Celebrate Halloween

How Canadians Celebrate Halloween

Growing up in Canada, I often forget that most of the world doesn’t devolve into ghost and ghouls come October 31st. Halloween is such a natural part of life in North America. Since the US dominates most of our TV shows, I never saw a […]

After all my posts on New Zealand, it’s fair to say I think it’s an awesome place. I’ll probably never stop talking about it! So really you shouldn’t be surprised that I’m writing, yet again, about New Zealand. But it might surprise you that I […]

Is Marrakech Safe for Solo Female Travellers?

Is Marrakech Safe for Solo Female Travellers?

Marrakech was one of my favourite places I visited during my 8 months in Europe (…even though it’s not in Europe). Morocco’s best-known city is hugely popular for a reason. The Medina blends history with rich culture, delicious food and beautiful scenes. And the shopping […]
