#TravelTuesday: Pura Vida Costa Rica #tripofalifetime!

#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.

#TravelTuesday: Top 5 Places I've Visited

Last week I brought you my Top 5 Places I Want To Visit so I only thought it was fitting to now tell you my top 5 places I've already visited and why I love them! If after this list you aren't satisfied and want to take a look at ALL the places I've visited you can check out my Travel Bragging page. I usually keep this page up to date as to where I am, where I've been, where I'm going next.

#TravelTuesday: The Top 5 Places I Want To Visit

I'm now counting the days until I move to Dubai on July 24th and I thought it would be fun to fantasize about all the places I'm going to be flying to and what my top 5 desired destinations are! To be clear this is a list of places I haven't yet been to. I've been very blessed to have traveled quite a bit in my life and if you want to see the full list of where I've been you can do so HERE.

The Life of a Nomad - Big Announcements, Growing Older and Moving On

Well, it has certainly been a while since I last did a post. I apologize. Sometimes I get caught up in life and forget how much I love writing. Let's do some catch up, shall we? There is a LOT to cover.

Last time I left you I was living in the Big Apple, the city where dreams are made of, New York! I had an absolutely amazing time. I never thought I would live in New York, it didn't strike me as my kind of place but I'm glad I had the experience. I made some amazing friends and look forward to visiting again but as far as living, I'm much happier not being there. I now live back in my home country of Canada in Toronto and love it, despite the horrid weather. The big plan was always to move here after Jessica and I finished our volunteering trip across the USA and I'm glad I've finally made it. I've only been here a short while but...

#TravelTuesday: The Big Move To Dubai

#TravelTuesday: The Big Move To Dubai

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.

#CTC13: Capture the Colour with @travelsupermkt

I love this whole idea! I'm fairly new to the whole travel blogging world but in the short time I've been around I've managed to make some amazing friends. Mostly because I kicked it all off with a trip to TBEX in Toronto this past June so I actually had the chance to meet everyone in person.

My lovely friend Lauren over at LolasTravels.com tagged me in this years #CTC13: Capture the Color with Travel Supermarket. I hope she enjoys all the photos I've chosen. I don't classify myself as a photographer in any way. I actually just use my phones camera for all of my photos because it makes me life easy. I appreciate amazingly HD photos and maybe one day I'll invest in a nice camera, but for right now I'm more about just being in the moment and enjoying the experience I'm currently having.

Seattle: I Can See Why People Like You

Seattle: I Can See Why People Like You

Seattle, I think I have a new love affair with you. I've been a few times before and enjoyed myself but this time was different. This time I really got the chance to explore you and get a feel for the type of city you are.

This was just suppose to be a pitstop on our way to Oklahoma City but ended up being a pleasant surprise. Originally Seattle was suppose to be at the end of the tour but it was great to break up the would be 4 day trip from Calgary to Oklahoma city.

What to do When you get Left at the Border?

What to do When you get Left at the Border?

So as Jessica and I left for the US on our #GetRAOKT adventure the craziest thing happened. The bus driver LEFT US AT THE BORDER! WHAAAAAAT!? Did that REALLY just happen!? As backpackers we were getting a little bit more of the 3rd degree than any of the other passengers, which I can understand. They want to make sure we're not trying to move to the US illegally and such. And just to be clear Jessica and I are VERY happy being Canadian. I enjoy my legal right to marry the man of my dreams across the country due to being a big GIANT gay. But as we are having our bags looked through the driver asked if anyone was left. Jessica and I notified him that we were and even the border crossing agents heard us. He decided to leave anyway!
