Let’s Catch Up

Welcome to my favourite post of the week…Let’s Catch Up!

This week was one of the most memorable of my life for two main reasons. The first, I turned the big 3-0 and the second, I celebrated my birthday in the middle of the Sahara Desert with a Nomad family, during an epic desert tour adventure (but you will have to stay tuned for more on that in the near future).

Three Things I’m Happy I Packed

When we were packing for our six-month adventure, I remember feeling mildly overwhelmed. Going from winter in Canada, to the warmth of the Caribbean, followed by a European spring, and hopefully, what will turn out to be a beautiful and hot European summer. How was I suppose to pack for such dramatic location and seasonal changes?!

I soon realized that despite not knowing if my clothing selection was bang-on for our six-month journey, I was definitely successful in a different area of packing: the tech area. Now, obviously I had a little help (my genius tech-loving boyfriend) but I thought I would share the three tech-item necessities I am oh-so-happy we brought with us. View Post

Who I Follow: Instagram

If you’re part of Generation Y, you probably have Instagram – if you don’t have it, you’ve definitely heard of it. As of December 2014, Instagram has amassed 300 million users, which results in approximately 40 million photos being posted daily to the service. One or two a day being from little old me at wanderb4what.

Now, if you don’t use Instagram, I hope that reading this post will inspire you to download the app and start “following” some of these interesting accounts. Instagram has become popular for a variety of reasons. Personally, I enjoy Instagram because it gives you direct access to interesting people, places, and photographs that have on more then one occasion left me inspired.

Three Tips to Book a Great Airbnb

We have had great success with Airbnb during our trip and as I mentioned recently, would recommend the service to anyone. More importantly, we would HIGHLY recommend the hosts and accommodations we have stayed at, but searching for a decent place via Airbnb can feel like having a part-time job when you are using it regularly.

I have therefore done my best to become a better ‘Airbnb searcher’, and I have some tips for you to do the same. There are usually two things that draw you to an Airbnb listing: the pictures, and the price. But today, I bring you three things you should pay attention to when searching Airbnb:
