I knew it would be a crazy idea, but I wanted to celebrate Canada Day in Ottawa this year. Living nearly 8 hours away, it would be a quick trip, but I knew I had to do it. I had to celebrate the 150th year since Confederation of Canada in Ottawa.
In Montreal, the largest city in Quebec, the more eccentric, the better. Montreal thrives on its fresh creative scene, and it’s easy to see why people come here from all over the world.
The city sits on an island surrounded by the St. Lawrence and is still an economic centre in Canada.
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.

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?!
