2012 has been an extremely fun year for me. I travelled 4 continents and 14 countries. So I figured I would give you a summary type post about my entire year filled with my a dazzling photo of moi (har har) along with a Post line-up for each country I visited. Here we go.Read More
Taking my 4 day tour through the Bolivian Salar de Uyuni, we spent a day passing through a Reserve which had mossy grounds being chomped on by llamas, and volcanos standing as a beacon in the distance.Read More

Travel History: 2011
2011 is divided. I spent the first 4 months completing my undergraduate degree in Ottawa, Canada. I only made it out of the city during my Reading Week and headed to Mount Tremblant, Quebec to snowboard. In February I accepted a job in Buenos Aires, Argentina and moved there in May. I stayed in my position until December 2011 and then began traveling South America for the last leg of 2011 and into 2012. So Far – I’ve had an incredible year. Spending 8 months in 2011 in South America learning Spanish, meeting so many incredible people both working and traveling, and getting a new understanding of myself and knowledge that I want to return to school for my Masters degree.Read More

Riding in a bumping bus through the EXTREMELY steep and windy streets, it definitely puts your stomach in your throat. So be warned!Read More
Day 18, 19, 20, 21, 22 – Sucre, Bolivia – Christmas 2011
Merry Christmas to Everybody far and wide!
I was in luck, friends of my friend live in Sucre Bolivia and decided they would adopt me for the few days I was in town so I was not left alone over Christmas (Although I was barely alone in a hostel full of foreigners). But it was EXTREMELY exciting to celebrate Christmas in a different country with locals and experience it through others eyes.
Biggestest difference from Canadian Christmas?Read More
