Silence. The motor of the boat has been cut, and you drift, bobbing with the waves in the Pacific Ocean. You’re surrounded by blue, and you can see mountains in the distance. But that’s not what you are here for. You are waiting, silently, scanning the water for a sign from the top predator of the ocean: the orca. Whale watching is a huge draw for visitors in British Columbia, and there are no questions as to why: seeing these beautiful marine mammals in the wild is an incredible experience.
Most people strive for work-life balance, others throw travel blogging into the mix. It’s not easy finding that perfect life combo, but there are several part-time wanderers, like me, that are doing just that.
But that’s why I wanted to start this series, Part-time Wanderers, to share the love of travelling with other bloggers who are travelling part-time too.
There is no doubt that Iceland is exploding with popularity and there are a hundred reasons why. From the cheap flights to the stunning landscape, Iceland is toppling many travellers’ wish lists. Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital city, is one of those reasons. I’ve rounded up some of the best of Reykjavik, including eating, seeing and touring. And yes, this list is totally subjective, so please comment below about your favourite place in the city!
Winter may be a time where you want to hole up next to a warm fire and drink hot chocolate, but it’s also the perfect time to go on a weekend getaway. Not only is it cheaper, but there are fewer people and who doesn’t love snow city scenes. So bundle up and pack your bags. Next stop is Kingston, Ontario.
Almost every post I read about going to Iceland told of the perils of “how expensive” it was. Nearly every comment I got when I came back included How expensive was it? How much did you spend? It was constant, so it inspired me to write this post: How much I actually spent in Iceland and what was my Iceland budget.
