Hello! A Brief Introduction

“Since life is short and the world is wide, the sooner you start exploring it, the better.” - Simon Raven

I first caught the travel bug early in the summer of 2013. My friends were spending time abroad on exchanges, volunteer trips, and work assignments, while I was sitting at home thinking about how I had never left North America. 

That’s not to say that I hadn’t had a taste of the joy that traveling brings— in my younger years I was lucky enough to take a number of trips around Canada and the United States with my family. But after hearing friends’ stories, seeing their pictures, and daydreaming about all the places I could go, I couldn’t stay in my comfort zone any longer.

It was the end of August 2013 that I embarked on my first big trip abroad, one that would spark a passion for travel that I still hold today. One of my dearest friends, Jocelyn, and I planned a trip that covered London, Iceland, Paris, and Rome. We carried only our backpacks, stayed in hostels, and had the time of our lives. 

I’ve taken many a trip since then, but you never forget your first. Through this blog I hope to share with you travel tips, inspiration, and stories I’ve picked up along the way. Let the adventure begin!
