Problem: Last week, I went to Montréal with a list of things to do, and I came back with an even bigger list of things to do the next time I go.
This seems to happen everytime I travel somewhere, but in Montréal, there really is a lot to do. Anyway, here’s what I did in only a few days.
There are many places on my bucket list (the whole world) and I try to focus on new places to visit as much as I can, but today I want to take a pause and think about a few of my favorite places in the world. Places I would go back to without a second thought, given the chance. Here they are:
It might look small on a map, but there’s tons of things to do in Croatia, and I only got to visit a few cities when I went. I did visit the Plitvice Lakes twice, and I would totally visit them again. Continue reading
I try to make as many trips as I can through a year, but sadly, it’s hard to save up enough money to achieve ALL of my dreams (I have quite a few). That’s why last year wasn’t that wild in the travel department. This year isn’t going to be a whole year around the globe either (though I’m glad to announce I did find someone crazy enough to follow me in a future one), but at least a summer through Canada.
And Canada is a big country, to say the least.
Here’s where I plan to go.
You’ll have noticed, 2016 wasn’t a big travel year for me. I worked and studied a lot, and I sure crave and plan for 2017 to be ALL about travelling, but that’s not what this post is about. This is about the few trips I found the time to make last year, usually not too far from home, but nothing short of amazing. Continue reading
As some of you may know, my sister and I won a free trip to New York in November, and I made this very elaborate list of things to do in the Big Apple but there’s just SO MUCH things to do in this amazing city, one weekend wasn’t enough. Still, here’s what I managed to do. Continue reading
So, I have an awesome sister who won an awesome trip to awesome New York and made the awesome decision to add awesome ME as her awesome plus one. ISN’T THAT AWESOME?
5 of my Reflections
When I don’t like the girl that I am, I catch a plane and leave her behind. Not once have I come back from a trip the same as when I left.
Travelling is discovering new things, but also reminiscing about old dreams, and realizing they still matter.
I’m back from my annual family to Gaspésie and I’m exhausted! The weather was awesome so we did a lot of outdoors—which was double awesome, but now I want to sleep forever. Continue reading
Last week the weather was heavenly in Québec, so I decided to leave for a 3-day biking/camping trip in Rivière-Ouelle. Best decision of my summer so far.
Lately, I’m deep into the preparation of several trips, including two biking tours during which I’ll camp on the road with no electricity or technology whatsoever. Needless to say, it requires a lot of preparation. Good thing is: I LOVE CHECKLISTS. So I thought I’d let you know what I think is essential to bring, in case some are thinking about doing a similar trip.
That is so nice! I want to thank Lara so much for the nomination! Everybody go check out her awesome blog, The Blackberry Season, about lifestyle and travelling; it is so well written and her talent for photography will make you jealous (in a good way, really).
If the bloggers I nominate choose to accept, go through the official rules and find out more about the award.
I’m super happy that the great Matea nominated me for this travel tag–check out her awesome blog here. I know it’s been a while since I posted about travelling, so this is the golden opportunity for me to do so!
It’s been a while since I travelled—I mostly post about past trips and books lately—but it doesn’t mean I’ve stopped dreaming about potential travel adventures. That’s pretty much all I dream about, really. Travelling.
(Through space, and also time, FYI.)
So I thought I’d share my travel plans for the rest of the year, and see if some of you have any recommendations about those destinations. When to go, where to stay, what to do? Let me know if you’ve been and how you liked it!
Dublin, Ireland. 2012.
I remember finding a very cheap way to get to Dublin (£35) to Dublin from Glasgow, Scotland, that included three buses, a ferry, a taxi, and that took over 20 hours of terribly uncomfortable naps.
If you’re planning on travelling to Ireland (and I sure hope it’s somewhere high on your bucket list) here’s a few things you should expect, just to be ready. And it’s good to be ready. So be ready.
