Living Like a Local in Tunisi

Tunisia is one of those places that seems too good to be true. Clear water and perfect beaches? Check. A warm, but not too humid climate to enjoy those beaches? Check. A rich and cultured history that you can experience today? Check. I could go on and on, but you get the point. For those who have not yet been lucky enough to have a dream holiday in Tunisia, there are many flights with companies such as First Choice that you can book. Here’s a glimpse at the life of a Tunisian local.

#TravelTuesday: The Big Move To Dubai

View From My Front Door
September 24th marked my 2 month anniversary of moving to Dubai and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I decided to accept a flight attendant job in Dubai and move to the other side of the world but I'm glad I took a leap of faith and went for it. The last two months have been a complete rollercoaster of emotions for me, but lets start from the beginning.

On July 24th 2014 I landed in the sweltering heat of Dubai with 50kg of my belongings, exhaustion from my 20+ hours of travel time with no sleep, and a dream. That dream was to travel the world...and get paid for it! As you all know I love to travel (that's what my blog is all about afteral!) but I'm sure you also all know how hard it is to work a "job" and save for one lousy 2 week holiday, maybe, if you can manage to afford it after all your bills. Now I can say that dream is a reality living here in Dubai as a flight attendant for the worlds most international flight company.

#TravelTuesday: Pura Vida Costa Rica #tripofalifetime!

Pura Vida - Pure Life, it's what the Costa Ricans live by. Last month I was in Costa Rica leading a #tripofalifetime for a bunch of grad students from Canada in a place just outside the city of Liberia for the company S-Trip! It may sound tedious having to watch out for a bunch of drunk 17/18 year olds who just graduated but I have to say I actually really enjoyed myself despite the lack of sleep. The students ended up being some of the coolest people and for the most part they were pretty well behaved. Of course there was all the things you expect like sneaking out after hours, changing rooms, super drunk ramblings, cuts, scrapes and even some bee stings (myself included on that one) but overall it was a solid group of around 150.

#TravelTuesday: World Pride Hangover

I first want to start off with apologizing for not having a post last week. I had a friend staying with me during World Pride Toronto and there was just so much going on every day that I didn't even have a chance to breathe let alone write a post. Now, where to start. World Pride Toronto 2014 has now come and gone and I can safely say I had a gigantic hangover! Not from drinking, I actually didn't drink much throughout the festivities, but from all the events and things going on. Every day there was something new to do and an adventure to be had. I'm going to lay out my main happy moments from all that happened with mostly just photos because I'd rather show it then tell it!

#TravelTuesday: World Pride Toronto

On Friday June 20th my current home city of Toronto welcomed the world for World Pride 2014. The opening reception for media was at the Hilton Toronto followed by the opening ceremonies at Nathan Phillips Square. It was a grand kick off with performances from Melissa Etheridge, Deborah Cox and country singing heartthrob Steve Grand. I was basically swooning from the moment Steve Grand took the stage until he was done. That man is a genuine sweetheart and he's a phenomenal singer to boot! He took time after his set to take photos and meet with everyone who wanted to chat after which to me is signs of a truly grateful person.
