Authentic room at Le Monestere des Augustines monastery | My Wandering Voyage travel blog

I’m definitely still talking about my amazing Quebec trip! It was a stellar beginning to my solo travelling dream. I talked about the delicious food and the highlights of my trip, but I jumped outside the box and stayed at an old monastery. You can read all about it here.

Don’t waste your vacation days, use them

Don't waste your vacation days | My Wandering Voyage Travel Blog

While the amount of time off depends on what country you work in and the company you work for, vacation days are essential for any traveller that still works full time.

While it may be the dream for some to be a digital nomad or a full-time traveller, for others, it’s just not possible. Especially, when you love your job, but still want to travel.

In Ontario, we have a mandated two-week vacation. That translates to 10 days in my job. How much of the world can you see in 10 days, you ask? Just enough to keep my travel bug bite satisfyingly itched.

My 2016 travel plans

my 2016 travel plans to

It’s July but I’m just starting to make my 2016 travel plans.

We’re in the midst of the dog days of summer here in Southern Ontario, where evenings and weekends are blocked out for relaxing, soaking up the precious sun, and jumping into the nearest body of water.

Summer days in Canada should be treasured. I like to spend them in my hometown and surrounding area.

All packed and ready to go! #vacation #backpacking #Greece #sun

Following my travel dreams while working full-time

July 8, 2016
Landscape with travel quote: Take me anywhere

No fear. Just jump.

That’s what I told myself when I decided to tackle my biggest dream.

You may have noticed a few changes to this website (thanks to my wonderful web designer: Candice) because I decided to jump with both feet and become a travel writer.

Looking at the pictures of #Jamaica reminds me of the week of #luxury #gratitude30 #day27

While I still work 9 to 5, I am so pumped to start writing about the places I go and the things I do.

I’ve been bitten by the travel bug and a full-time job doesn’t quell that.

This blog is for all those who are travel dreamers. Exploring isn’t just about travel to (insert your dream destination here), it’s about being open to the places around you. This blog explores all places, from around the world destinations to digging deep into my backyard playground.

May Favourites – Big adventures across Canada

May 30, 2015

Favourite Adventure

Needless to say, my seventh road trip across Canada has been my greatest adventure for May. Not only did I get to drive across this beautiful country, but I saw amazing places I had never seen before. Of all the adventures we got ourselves into along the trip, my favourite had to be Dinosaur Provincial Park, in Alberta.

The prairies opened up before us and BAM! We were in the middle of the desert badlands! You could see the different prehistoric eras in the rock and almost picture dinosaurs roaming the valley.

Standing at the rim of the valley, feeling the warm prairie wind, was a humbling experience.

Favourite Things

Accessories for every traveller – Seriously though, that scarf seems handy!

Paracord – A friend made me a purple and grey paracord bracelet, now I think everything needs to be made from paracord!

Episode calendar – Left for a vacation and forgot what episode you were on when you got back? Handy dandy tool right here.

The Bear – Ha! I made the mistake of starting to read this over my camping trip. Terrifying and beautiful.
