Feelin’ kinda fly…

Two months ago, I willingly jumped out of plane for the first time and it was the most incredible thing I’ve ever done. Huge shoutout to my amazing instructor, Carlos, and videographer, Alex, for making my first skydiving experience so spectacular! Full video:

48 hours in Bangladesh

The last few months of my life have been a blur. A good blur. A great blur in fact. When you’re too busy living to blog regularly, what else could it be but great? Something great led me to book a 48 hour trip to Bangladesh. Fifteen wanderlust-adventuring personalities connected through ‘Trekk Up Dubai’ to…

Be wild and Rome

Any resident of Canada will tell you that travelling is a hassle. It’s far! Really far! Hop on a plane for 5 hours and guess what – chances are, you’ll still be in Canada! With that being said, one of the most convenient things about being based in Dubai is its proximity to so many places (most…

Oh-my, Oman!

I know I keep promising to write more, text more, call more, FaceTime more, etc, etc, etc. From the bottom of my heart I apologize to those of you I’ve been unable to keep in touch with. Life is chaotic in general. But throw in a new job; combine it with a new city; add 9…

I’ve lived in many, many places but Dubai is obviously quite different. It reminds me a lot of the wealthy areas of Miami or LA – sprawling, tropical, lots of money, even more traffic. Dubai is a really young city and as a…

Helsinki, I’m into you

Of all the travel advice I’ve been given, the best thing I’ve been told is to be strategic about layovers. For years and years I avoided them (I mean, airlines give you that “direct flights only” box for a reason right?); however, being open to layovers and extending them to allow enough time to actually…

New year, new city, same me

I was extremely fortunate to be born into a family of travellers. I took my first passport photo at the ripe age of two weeks old; lived in six cities across North America and Europe before my 12th birthday; and attended thirteen schools before I turned 18. This has undoubtedly contributed to my innate inability to…
