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.
No fear. Just jump.
That’s what I told myself when I decided to tackle my biggest dream.
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.
April has been one hell of an adventure. From biking riding, to geocaching, to hiking, to kayaking, to dog sitting, I am taking every advantage of the nice weather! It’s that time in Canada where, even though it is only 10 degrees outside, people are starting to wear t-shirts.
Aren’t having bucket lists great? I think so. That’s why I have one.
So I left a couple of days ago for my third cross Canada trip, but the first one where I drove. Compared to being a kid when your parents make all the decisions, I learned a few things about the long haul that I would like to pass on.
Starting a blog is much like staring at a blank page. It is a momentous leap to put ink to paper, a jump to put fingers to keys. This is something that I have wanted to do for a while. I have wanted to travel and I have wanted to write about it. Everything was stopping me from doing it. School. Money. Life.
Then I realized that no matter what I do, or where I go, as long as I feel as if it is an adventure, then it is. And boy do I have a big bucket list!
Life is what I make of it.
Going to school for journalism has taught me a few things; one of which is that I have a natural curiosity for everything. Curiosity fuels passion; so in order to enjoy life, you have to stay curious.
So here is to life, and here is to travelling.
This blog will be all of my thoughts, experiences, and photos from my travelling experiences.
Be sure to follow along here.
Enjoy the ride,
