Livin the London Life!

Hey everyone,

I have been in London for a few days now and I have finally gotten around to posting! I have been very busy in the best possible way. I just love the energy of this city-and I have even enjoyed good weather for most of my time here so far! I spent the first couple of days doing the typical tourist stuff-abbeys, towers, bridges, and so forth! I really don’t want to waste your time going over what exactly I did because you can look up any top ten London list and find the same things! 😊 I spent the other day in Greenwich which was absolutely lovely. I love how it feels like a completely separate city with a slower pace and less tourists. It really was a wonderful day! If you are headed to London I would definitely recommend to spend at least an afternoon in Greenwich, hit up the market, walk around and enjoy your self! There are a few hostels in the area so you can even extend your time in Greenwich if you would like! 

I still have a couple of days in this lovely city so you can expect a more detailed post with things to do, places to stay, and all sorts of stuff! 
Happy travels! 

Hostels @ Home

Hey everyone!

This post is one I thought about writing a while ago but decided against it. Now, after a busy week I have decided to revisit this topic because I really think it might be useful to people. As the title is pretty straightforward, this is about hostels at home! I live in Canada and I have spent many nights in hostels and budget accommodations overseas, but I never really considered how much FUN these hostels could be right in my backyard.  Continue reading

Budget Conscious Travelling

I HATE the term ‘budget travelling’. So many people think that if you are travelling on a budget you will be missing out on awesome things, or be staying in shady hostels, that kind of stuff. Budget travelling is great because for lots of people it means they get to do MORE. If you had to save up for years and years to travel, you wouldn’t get to see and do as much as a budget traveller who travels more often, but is aware of their budget. This will be a short post, but here are a couple tips about how to stay conscious of your budget while travelling!  Continue reading

The Essential Backpacking LIST

I have named this the “Essential Backpacking List” for several reasons. First, I am a LIGHT packer. This list includes essentials, a few extras, and thats about it! Please note that what I consider essential may not be essential for you, so adjust accordingly! Secondly, I think that it is a great idea to look at what other people pack to give you an idea of what you will need for a trip, especially if it is your first time Continue reading

European Adventure: Part III

Hey there! Been a while since I posted, sorry about that! I have been spending wayyyy to much time planning my upcoming trip to Europe. I have had a few questions on where I will be heading to, so I thought I would answer them here! One reason for this is that I am terrible at responding to emails in a timely matter – so I do apologize! Here we go,

I am planning on spending some time in London area and I really want to visit the Cliffs of Dover and the English Channel, so I will have to head out there as well!

Wanderlust? Actually Planning a Trip Once You Have an Idea

I spend a seriously alarming amount of time daydreaming about places I want to go and things I want to do. Like for real – I should spend a lot more time focused on finishing my last semester of school or working. Its not like I regret it – I have just realize how much time I have been spending planning trips way wayyyy into the future. Continue reading

Europe – 3rd Time is a Charm

I am in the midst of planning another trip to my favorite continent – Europe. For those of you who are curious, my first trip to Europewas exploring different parts of Italy. This included Milan, Venice (one of my favorite cities), Ravenna, Florence, Pisa, Cinque Terre, The Vatican, and Rome, as well as a brief stay in London, England. This was such an eye opening and beautiful experience, I needed to go back. I partially attribute this to throwing a coin the the Trevi Fountain in Rome. They say if you throw a coin in and wish to go back, you will.

Since I knew I needed to return – I booked another trip over! Although it was several years later – the thrill instantly returned. My next trip was a solo trip. I was scared, anxious, excited, and simply teeming with energy as I boarded the plane from Canada. Little fact about me – I love planes, airports, packing – anything to do with travel! During this trip I expanded my comfort zone a bit and travelled to several areas. Continue reading
