I lay on the examining table at the hospital in the Galapagos Islands. The doctor said something in Spanish. His face gave nothing away. My translator Eduardo leaned in. “The doctor said ‘This is going to hurt a lot.’” The doctor’s assistants moved in to hold me down. I covered my mouth with my free hand and prepared for the worst.
You are (20)16 going on (20)17, baby it’s time to reflect.
The wonderful year of 2016 has come to an end. It was a big year, full of brand new adventures. I jumped into travel writing, I took my first solo trip and learned how to used my vacation days to travel. You could say it was the first year in a journey of a lifetime.

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.
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.

I am so happy to announce that I have finally jumped in with both feet into my travel writing dream. I ~officially~ launched my website earlier this month after YEARS of wanting to do just this. I’ve been putting off my dreams for a whole host of excuses, so NO FEAR right?!
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.
No fear. Just jump.
That’s what I told myself when I decided to tackle my biggest dream.
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.
