Six Months of Backpacking

I almost missed it, if I'm being perfectly honest. I've stopped checking my phone for the time or date, and I most definitely couldn't tell you if it was Monday or Friday. Time is no longer relevant, and I'm enjoying being off the clock. As it turns out, it has officially been six months since... Continue Reading →

4 Years

We don't have an exact date, but sometime in February 2014, Matt and I started dating. Over the years, we've decided on the 18th (as we weren't going to let Valentine's Day steal our thunder). In the time we've been together, we've experienced and shared so much with one another. I don't want to get too... Continue Reading →

twenty-seventeen

This year, we were fortunate to explore through 3 different continents, countless cities and with all the people we love! Thank you to everyone we met along the way, you have all made this year so special for us. Europe:  Two trips to London, a birthday scavenger hunt in Bournemouth, cheerleading competitions, visits with friends... Continue Reading →

YYZ – YVR – HNL – SYD

In April, our Working Holiday Visas were accepted, and we booked a really cheap flight from Toronto to Sydney with two layovers: Vancouver for 2 hours, and Honolulu for 9 hours. Australia was our very first topic of conversation when we met in 2013, and the plan to come here together on the WH visa... Continue Reading →

A Local’s Guide To: Niagara Falls

No matter how many times I visit, I am always blown away by the power and beauty of Niagara Falls. While it may not be considered one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the world, I firmly believe that no other waterfall compares. Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls found between the... Continue Reading →

Canada Backpack Check List (Winter Season)

Backpack: As you'll see in all my check lists, the backpack is the piéce de rèsistance, and rightly so. For Canada, you'll need a large pack for sure (55-70L), as the clothing you'll be taking will most likely be suited for colder weather, and subsequently larger in size due to insulation etc. If you are...

It’s 5 O’clock somewhere.

Is it acceptable to drink before midday? I mean, it was the weekend, so we'll let it slide... We started our Saturday morning at Di Profio Winery in Jordan, Ontario. Wine tasting can be enjoyed all year long, but the harvest season is typically September to October in Niagara. This means the wineries get pretty... Continue Reading →

“Yolanda, be cool”

Ally and I had gone to meet her Uncle Kurt, for a late breakfast in Orangeville. Angel's Diner was exactly the way American diners look in the movies to us Brits: red booth seats, race flag flooring and neon lights. It could've been the set for the opening scene of Pulp Fiction for all I... Continue Reading →

The Badlands.

When I last came to Canada in Autumn 2014, the Cheltenham Badlands were open to the public, with no entrance fee. You just parked your car up on the side of the road and walked down. Unfortunately, the Badlands are closed to visitors while they undergo a major development project, and are expected to re-open in Spring...
