The landscape of how individuals travel sure has changed since my last backpacking tour of Europe in 2010.
Five years ago, when I would ask fellow travellers where they were staying, 99% would list off the name of a hotel or hostel they were stationed at. Now, a large portion of travellers are choosing alternative accommodations to the typical overpriced hotel or crowded hostel rooms. View Post
Before my partner and I embarked on our European adventure, we spent some time on the beautiful Caribbean island of Grenada. We have been blessed to visit numerous times (it helps when you have family reside there) and it is truly starting to feel like a second home.
The landscape is surreal. Beautiful beaches, pristine water, rolling hills, lush rainforest, and more than enough fruit to fill your hearts desire. The beauty of the island definitely is enough to leave an impression on any traveller, however, the lovely locals are what keeps us coming back. I have always felt that Grenadians are the Caribbean’s kindest and most hospitable people. View Post
If you caught my posts last week, you would know that I’ve become enamoured with the world of travel blogging. It’s like a black hole you can get lost in, every further click leading to a new adventurer, lists of tips and tricks, amazing photos, captivating pieces of prose and hours of endless Vlogs to entice you further to… click.

We recently spent five days in Lisbon, the capital and tourist centre of Portugal.
The selfie sticks, fanny packs, and Tilley hats were everywhere. However, since we were visiting during shoulder season, I’m sure it is nothing in comparison to what the locals are used to seeing during the summer months.
Lisbon had all the hustle and bustle of a large tourist town and given the beauty of the city, and the charm of the locals, it was easy to look beyond the throngs of tourists to enjoy this incredibly interesting, historic capital.
Have you ever wondered to yourself, “what have the Portuguese done to help solve world hunger”? Me neither, until today. On the advice of a tour guide, I set out to find a local sandwich – one which is made of legend. Legend and other stuff, mostly things that humans eat. Allow me to introduce you to my adventure with the Francesinha, Porto’s official answer to end world hunger. View Post
