HAPPINESS

A huge thing that people are prided on throughout life is their ability to make changes. Whether this is through weight loss or moving up in their company, progressing in life is something that underlines most of our goals. While we are achieving our personal goals and constantly bettering ourselves, we are changing. We are developing …

CANMORE, ALBERTA

Imagine the most perfect little town in the middle of a valley. Snow-capped mountains surround the town from every direction. Elk and deer frequently feed around the outskirts of town. Strangers smile at you as you walk down the street, some even say hi (a foreign concept to any Toronto native). Along with the vast …

TORONTO, ONTARIO

 Kensington Market Have you ever visited a place where every direction that you looked in was something so exceptional that you couldn’t take your eyes away? Colours, smells, and sounds, that take your breath away. Cultures that are so prominent in every space that you see. This is the kind of atmosphere that engulfs Kensington …

BRATISLAVA

A city defined by cobblestone streets, beautiful European buildings in every direction, and some of the wildest, most engaging people you will ever meet. One of the greatest aspects about Bratislava, especially for a young (budget) traveler like myself, is that it’s such an inexpensive destination to visit. Although most people think of Paris or …

THE SCOTTISH BORDERS

Moving to Melrose An adventure that I’ve been dreaming about for years has finally begun. I have moved to a foreign country which I’ve never been to before, on my own. I know Scotland’s not the typical country one might think of as “foreign” since it’s quite Westernised and there’s minimal culture-shock when visiting or …

BOOKS

    The Alchemist-Paulo Coelho “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” A book addressing life philosophies and following one’s destiny. This book is the perfect read to find inspiration and motivation in. Paulo Coelho’s work creates a constant flow and always provides that feeling that makes …

PARIS

   Paris Curious Culture This aspect of Paris had to be my favourite. Sure, the food was great and the Eiffel Tower was definitely a breath-taking landmark that you must see, but the culture of Paris is what really stood out to me. People seemed much more connected and open. It wasn’t like walking through …

YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE PARK

Yorkshire Wildlife Park      Importance of Wildlife Conservation After watching dozens of documentaries on wildlife and animals, I respect the fact that humans are on the same level of importance as all other living beings. I don’t believe that we should take advantage of our position in the world. I cringe at the thought …

LONDON

     London A Sea of Green Within the Big City Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am not a big-city lover. I would much rather spend a day surrounded by greenery, nature, and preferably, animals. However, London’s vast colourful parks within the architecturally European styled city, may have changed my mind. …

CUBA

Curious Culture If you plan on visiting this incredible country, my biggest recommendation is to GET OUT OF YOUR HOTEL! Sure, everyone loves to spend a day laying on the beach, pina colada in hand, soaking up the sun. But I highly suggest having a limited amount of these days. That way, you will be able to …
