Brief Stop in Fundy National Park

We decided to head to Cape Breton for a few days of hiking a few days after I got back from Vancouver...but Cape Breton is far. We decided to break the trip up by spending 12 hours in Fundy National Park. We camped at the Park Headquarters Campground. Last time I was in Fundy, we... Continue Reading →

Capilano Anxiety Bridge

I've had this *thing* about suspension bridges for a really long time. When I was around 8 or 9 years old, I had a complete and total meltdown over crossing one. Like, nuclear meltdown, then and there in the woods. Here's the thing: they have never scared me before. But this one triggered something I'd... Continue Reading →

Alberta and I are reaaaally well acquainted at this point, and I didn't bother with anything touristy. I can't stand the Banff crowds in... Continue Reading →

Falling in love…

I can't remember a precise moment where I realized that I wanted to travel. I've read blogs and heard friends talk about the moment they realized they were in love with it. I never had that moment. It was just...always there. I used to love collecting tourist pamphlets as a kid. The prized ones were... Continue Reading →
