With packing, I find there is no happy medium. It’s either “Shit I can’t believe I forgot that” or “Why did I bring that”, there’s no middle ground. When I was packing for my Alps road trip, I knew I needed to be strict.

Planning outfits was the easiest way to figure out how much clothing I really needed to bring. Call it what you will (cough – A-type – cough). I know okay. I LOVE planning. Deal with it.

five free things to do in Salzburg, Austria | My Wandering Voyage travel blog

The storybook city of Salzburg offers so much more than I ever expected. It was never supposed to be a big stop on my whirlwind tour of Central Europe, but it ended up being my absolute favourite stop on the road trip.

Algonquin Park, Canada - My Wandering Postcard | My Wandering Voyage travel blog

This week’s Wandering Postcard comes from Joel who snapped this picture of Algonquin Park in Ontario, Canada.

Algonquin is one of the most popular parks in the province and known for its magnificent fall colours, its plethora of lakes, and it’s beauty that inspired the Group of Seven painters.

The provincial park is also one of the oldest in Canada.

Thanks so much to Joel for sending this in!

I’m starting a global movement to connect with travellers all over the world. My dream is to see the world, but together we already have.

I’ve launched My Wandering Postcard, a global virtual postcard project to connect people from all over the world through photographs.

I would love for you to participate.

Send your travel-related photo with your name and location, and I’ll post it here. Let’s collect as many cities and towns around the world and see where these postcards take us.

Connect with me and explore the world.

Everything you need to know about Quito, Ecuador | My Wandering Voyage Travel Blog

I didn’t know what to expect of Quito on my trip to the Galapagos. I would be there only 1.5 days, so I knew I physically couldn’t see everything.

The Ecuadorean capital is massive, spanning 30 kilometres along a valley in the Andes mountains in South America. At 2,850 metres above sea level, it is the highest capital city on the equator and the second highest capital city in the world.
