Since starting my new job in the beginning of this year, I have much less flexibility in terms of travel. Because I am a part of a team, I can no longer book flights on a whim and leave whenever I please. My vacation days are to be aligned with the rest of the team’s and an approval is necessary.
If you’re noticing a rise in the number of blog post I publish, it’s mostly because none of my books have arrived at my local library yet. Left with nothing else to do on my commute, I turn to Evernote and typed away all the post ideas I have in my head. I have a feeling a book avalanche is going to come my way soon and I’m going to be scrambling to return them on time. C’est la vie.
If you’re looking for book recommendations or something to read while you’re enjoying the sun, here are some ideas.
I love day trips. They’re the perfect antidote for this travel-obsessed, easily-stir-crazy girl. So, if I’m not sipping my coffee at Rooster, hanging around at Te Aro, or chilling and entertaining at home, you’ll likely find me in a car, off exploring some corner of Ontario. Plus, it’s summer (!), the perfect time to go on a drive and explore a place you’ve never been to before.
They say “home is where the heart is”, but how do you find out where home is if your heart is torn in 3 different directions?
It’s about to get really personal here guys…
I was met with a lot of skepticism and surprise when I tell people that we organized our entire trip Machu Picchu on our own. In fact, this is how I have been travelling ever since I could travel – independently, only using agents when absolutely necessary. I’m not here to bad-mouth travel agents and tour operators, all I’m saying is there is a way to avoid all the extra fees if you’re willing to do your research beforehand as I will prove to you with this post and hopefully make it easier for you if you ever end up wanting to replicate our trip.
