A Week in the Dominican Republic

My body has been craving another trip, which means I have been reminiscing about my vacation to the Dominican Republic from a few months ago. I have been meaning to share my trip on here, but these last few months have been super busy and—not to mention—have flown by, so creating this post got lost…

2016 | A Year in Pictures

I think it’s safe to say that most people are happy to see 2016 come to an end, as it was definitely not a great year in terms of politics, world events and celebrity deaths. However, on a personal level, I did manage to have a great year chock full of adventures and exciting things…

Weekend Road Trip to Cleveland

Even though it’s time to buckle down and focus on my last year of university, my head is still in the clouds thinking about all the adventures my boyfriend and I were able to have this summer.

Cleveland | What’s in my Travel Makeup Bag?

Last weekend, my boyfriend and I took a little road trip to Cleveland to see the Toronto Blue Jays play the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field. We also squeezed in a little sightseeing as well—however, that’s all for a separate blogpost I will hopefully have up by the end of the week. Today, I wanted to…

A Weekend in the Country’s Capital

As I’m packing my bag and getting ready for our road trip to Cleveland, Ohio this weekend, I figured it was about time I shared some photos from my weekend in Ottawa last month.

A Week in Mexico

I cannot believe my blog has been neglected for the past month. I have been so busy with school and finals, plus I have been working a lot more, which ultimately meant my blog (sadly) went on the back burner. Anyways, today I am back and finally sharing my trip to Cancun, Mexico that my boyfriend and…

New York City | Part 1

Earlier this month, my mum, sister and I headed to New York City—a place I have talked about visiting since what feels like forever. I’m so happy I got to spend a few days in this city with two of my favourite people. Despite the fact it was quite the exhausting trip (we were constantly…

London (Ontario) Calling

Amidst papers and endless readings for school, this past weekend I got away from it all (somewhat) and escaped to London to see my sister. She had gotten me tickets to see Mother Mother for my birthday and we opted for the London show over the Toronto one, so I had an excuse to go to…

Guatemala Part 3 | Tikal, Flores and Lake Atitlan

Ah, the final blogpost in my Guatemala trilogy. Thursday night Val, Imane and myself took an overnight bus from Guatemala City to Flores. We took a first class bus, which was like a Greyhound here in Toronto. There was plenty of legroom and the seats were super comfortable, so we all slept well. However, the one…

Guatemala Part 2 | Animal AWARE

For my placement with IVHQ, I was at Animal AWARE (Animal Welfare Association – Rescue/Education). Founded in 1998 by Xenii Nielsen, this charitable organization focuses on rescuing and rehabilitating domestic animals. They are non-profit and receive no government assistance. Their goal is to get these animals adopted, whether locally or abroad, and provide all the…

Guatemala Part 1 | Antigua, New Friends and Yalu

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you are probably aware that I recently just got back from an incredible trip to Guatemala. I volunteered through IVHQ, a New Zealand based company, with their animal care program. If you’ve been considering volunteering then definitely check IVHQ out as they have affordable rates, offer a bunch of different volunteer…
