Travel recap of the last two years

Travel recap of the last two years

Since my last documented destination, Copenhagen, I have travelled to a few more places but I have not done an extensive trip since then. Why? First, I landed a job that was fun but busy. I never thought I would ever prioritize career over travel […]

Copenhagen: The city of the future

Copenhagen: The city of the future

Denmark is a country I have always wanted to visit but actually knew very little about. Unlike Sweden, I didn’t know very much about its culture, besides its socialist leanings, Soren Kierkegaard, Roskilde, The Raveonettes and Aqua. One other thing I did know about Denmark […]

Stockholm: The city of my dreams

Stockholm: The city of my dreams

I had long dreamed of visiting Sweden. The seeds were sown when I was a teenager and I learned about their social democratic system which resulted in relatively low rates of child poverty, green energy initiatives, great transportation infrastructure and a general high quality of […]

London

London

A friend once said that the most surreal aspect of London is how oddly familiar the city feels, mostly because of how iconic its sites and buildings are. I certainly understood what she meant the minute I arrived in the great capital of England. I […]

Although I had some pretty high expectations of Scotland, I was still surprised by how much I loved it there. In many ways, the scenery reminded me of New Zealand: rolling green hills dotted with white sheep, u-shaped valleys and mountains surrounded by a beautiful […]

Ontario Cottaging

I have been fortunate enough to visit many countries around the world but I haven’t seen very much of my home country, Canada. I often meet travellers who are in the same position. They’ll remark that I’ve seen more of their country than them. For […]

Biking around the world

One thing I like to do when I travel is bike wherever I can. It’s fun, it’s active and it allows you to cover a lot of terrain but doesn’t go so fast that sites just whizz by. Although all of the biking I have […]

NYC: Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

NYC: Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre

The best thing about NYC is there is no shortage of things to do and it’s very easy to indulge any interests. I love comedy so I really wanted to check out some improv when I went in December. I settled on seeing the Upright […]

NYC: Sleep No More

NYC: Sleep No More

I went to NYC in December for the purpose of seeing Sleep No More, an interactive performance art production based on the Shakespeare play Macbeth. The production was wonderful and definitely one of the more interesting and novel things I have done in a long […]
