A Drive Through Two Underrated Canadian Rockies National Parks

I'm always excited to visit Banff. It might help that I have some awesome family there, but Banff in itself is inexplicably one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, so I'm lucky to have excuses to visit often (if 3 times in 12 years counts as often). But on this trip, we'd be… Continue reading A Drive Through Two Underrated Canadian Rockies National Parks

Google Maps From Above: The World From A New Perspective

As usual, I was on Google Maps. I was actually doing research, rather than doing my regular antic of perusing a country I've never heard of hours after starting off on a restaurant a mile away from my house. You know when people fall down the YouTube rabbit hole? Me, I fall down the Google… Continue reading Google Maps From Above: The World From A New Perspective

10 Countries I Want To Go Back To

I've been reminiscing a lot recently. I've also been looking forward to the next few months, and the realisation that I'll be 30 at the beginning of next year made me think of my gradually-forgotten goal of visiting 30 countries, which I assumed would be long reached by now. The truth is, I stopped country-counting… Continue reading 10 Countries I Want To Go Back To

Ten Years On: My Travel Diary From Trek America!

Ten years ago, I embarked on a journey that I suppose in some ways changed my life. The trip itself wasn't particularly life-changing, but I made friends who I still have to this day. It was my first real "independent" trip, even though I was on a tour with twelve other people, all my age… Continue reading Ten Years On: My Travel Diary From Trek America!

How Travel Has Changed Me, Yada Yada

"Oh, whatever." I can see your eyes rolling as you open this (or don't) because you've heard it all before. Travel made me so much more confident! Travel has made me feel closer to humanity!

A Short & Sweet Trip To Vancouver Island: Beautiful Victoria, BC

I was always undecided about whether I would make it over to Vancouver Island. As someone who travels with the intention of gobbling up every place I can set foot on, I had to wonder why Victoria wasn't screaming out to me. I mean, I didn't not want to visit, and after all I'd had… Continue reading A Short & Sweet Trip To Vancouver Island: Beautiful Victoria, BC

My Top 10 Things To Do In Vancouver

As some of you know, I was recently invited to take part in all that Vancouver has to offer its tourists (along with everyone else in Vancouver who also works in the tourism industry - so let's not pretend I'm special!). Most of these things I probably wouldn't have done on my own, or would… Continue reading My Top 10 Things To Do In Vancouver

Things I Find Strange About Vancouver (& Canada) – From A UK Perspective

Moving to the other side of the world was always going to be a culture shock. Although Canada is very similar to the UK in a lot of respects, there are plenty of things that have taken me aback, that I'm still getting used to, or that I just find a bit strange. Some of… Continue reading Things I Find Strange About Vancouver (& Canada) – From A UK Perspective

Squamish, And Why I Prefer It To Whistler

When I visited Whistler last month, the drive took us along a spectacular road that snaked alongside mountains and the sea, views of islands ever-changing as the land drew towards us until we were completely inland. The best part of the drive culminated in Squamish, and I immediately made a mental note to go back.… Continue reading Squamish, And Why I Prefer It To Whistler
