Feels like home here. Love walking the streets with no plans or schedules, really just taking all the sights in...especially the Schönbrunn Palace. Breath-taking gardens that seem to stretch for miles! The entire city is simply jaw-droppingly elegant...
Bruges, Brussels, Ghent
Had a beautiful time touring the country with my mum. It's got a lovely charm about it, especially Bruges and Ghent. Especially the chocolates.
Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto, Halifax
My home! The true north, strong, and free! Being the second largest country in the world, Canada's vast land has something for everyone. Whether it's the endless ocean in the east, the mammoth mountains in the west, the plains of the Prairies, or the buzzing cities in the middle, it seems like there is no end to this country's beauty and character!
Siem Reap, Phnom Penh
A country of contrasts...from the heights of Angkor to the lows of the Killing Fields, a look at mankind's capacity to create and to destroy.
Brno, Prague, Třebíč.
My first European country...my first time traveling on my own, actually! Lived and studied here for a summer and connected with some of the most amazing people. So many precious memories made...there'll always be a special place in my heart for this country!
Ah, Paree, Paree! What can I possibly say about this place that hasn't been said already? The streets of Montmartre (my favourite spot there) have a certain old school romance that you just won't get anywhere else...
Berlin, Dresden, Munich, Trier, Aachen
Ich liebe Deutschland! Simply enamored by this whole country...its history, its culture, its language. There's this mystery and allure about the country that I just can't seem to unlock...
Didn't have any expectations for Hungary or even a desire to visit but what a gorgeous, gorgeous place! I now wish we had more time to fully explore the whole city!
Venice, Murano, Burano, Torcello, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena
The art, the food, the fashion, the men. What's not to love? Everything about my stays in Italy always scream, la dolce vita. Always the perfect place to just relax, sip on a little vino, and enjoy all the sensory pleasures this country has to offer.
Landed right on the eve of the National Holiday celebrating the Grand Duke's birthday. The entire city was shut down for the biggest party I've ever seen. All the different styles of music playing in different corners with people just dancing, boozing and schmoozing!
Amsterdam, Dordrecht, Leiden, Maastricht
Found another home and family while staying in the Netherlands and you can't quite beat that! Love the laid back feel of the country...and I'm still in awe of the enormous bike culture that I only wish we could bring over to North America!
Tagaytay, Manila, Cebu
This trip was in every sense a journey...not just an exploration of some country, but of my roots. For the first time, I stumbled on to the unvisited corners of myself...and what a surprise to find them miles away from home.
A fascinating country so rich in history.
Our trip to Auschwitz was an important experience, no doubt...but truly disturbing. Even as I stood and walked through this infamous concentration camp and saw all the remnants from the horrific past, there was still a feeling of disbelief.
Bern, Luzern, Interlaken
OBSESSED with this country and the grandeur of the Alps. How can I possibly describe what it was like being in, and sometimes even, above the clouds? Absolutely thrilling...nothing can possibly compare.
Grand Canyon, Washington D.C.
Ah, our neighbours to the south! The land of the excess! But herein lies my two favorite spots - the Grand Canyon and Washington D.C...one bursting in natural beauty, the other in cultural capital.
