My Best Travel Moments of 2020

2020 was the year that we all became experts at trying to find silver linings. Making the best of bad situations. The year of the pivot. There was a lot of turmoil around the world but I was still able to find a lot of happiness and even some fantastic travel moments this year. They might look a little different than past years but they were memorable all the same. Here are my favourite travel moments of 2020.


My Best Travel Moments of 2019

The end of the year is always a time for reflection it seems. Maybe it’s the long, dark nights that make us ruminative, but I always find myself thinking back to the year that was, and especially the travelling that I did.


A Korean Haircut

A Korean Haircut

What do you do when you’re in a foreign country where you don’t speak the language but you’ve decided that you absolutely need to get your hair cut? When this happened to me, it all came down to hand gestures and a driver’s license.



A Dinner Misfire in Barcelona

If you want to travel but it intimidates you, maybe some of these stories will make you think, “well, hell if she can do it, so can I!” And if so, then my job here is done. For this story I’m going to take you back to Barcelona in 2014 when I was still a relatively new solo traveller. Fakin’ it ’til I makin’ it…



Hathos: the Joy and Agony of Dulse

I sat at the kitchen table, staring at a small paper bag, filled with dried purple seaweed. This time I would try it. The briny smell of the ocean floor wafted from the bag. You could smell it from six feet away, easy. But it was time. No more excuses. At the age of 39, it was high time that I tried dulse for the first time.



These are the Things That Won’t Stop Me From Travelling

There are many things that could stop me from travelling. Age. Being solo. Fear. Money. But I’m doing my best to not let any of them put a stop to my travels. The world is wide and I want to make some memories. I won’t stop traveling until I’ve seen the sun set on every coast.


Travel Goofs

Rookie Travel Goofs

Costa Rica was the scene of my first international solo trip back in 2012. With my imminent return I started thinking a lot about that trip. I was such a baby traveller back then. Everyone has some misconceptions and makes some silly travel mistakes when they first start travelling. I was no exception.


Best and Worst of 2017

My Best (and Worst) Travel Moments of 2017

Globally, 2017 has been a bit of a dumpster fire but personally it’s been a pretty good year. Especially when it comes to travel. I got to visit four new countries, met great new people, and had some amazing experiences I’ll never forget. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite moments with you.


Island Hopping in Malta

Accidental Island Hopping in Malta

“I’m trying to get to Comino.” “You can get there from Gozo.” “I don’t have a ticket. I need a ticket.” “It’s ok. Just go, the gate is closing. Go.” I was still half asleep from the hour long morning bus ride so I just followed the crowd. I followed the crowd off the bus. I followed the crowd into the terminal. I followed the crowd onto the ferry. I followed the crowd to Gozo. And that’s how I found myself accidentally island hopping in Malta.


Adjusting Your Travel Expectations

I’m sitting on a bean bag chair in one of the hostel’s common areas trying desperately not to scratch any of the 20+ itchy bug bites I’ve picked up in two days and listening to the thunder outside grow closer, putting a damper on my activity planning. Malta, we’ve gotten off to a rocky start.
