*Mea Culpa, the blogging as I traveled thing just didn't happen given how busy I was! So these journals were written on the trip, most retrospectively, with a couple written after I landed back in Canada. This was an utterly amazing trip, and I'm so excited to share it with you guys.* So, I got … Continue reading 2016 Travel Journals: Berlin
So, I finished school for the year June 23th, which somehow seems so far away. Since then, I've been relaxing with my family; just taking life slow, sleeping in, video games with my sister and bonfires at the shore. It's been a lovely little restorative break, which is certainly what I needed after school..and as … Continue reading The last summer
So, my summer trip has almost been firmed up, and it is going to be - not to brag - the best! I am super excited about it, and also kind of glad that it's firm because if I added any more I'd have to sell a kidney...#LOC But honestly, the trip looks like this: … Continue reading Summer Extravaganza 2016 (aka that Harry Potter themed trip apparently)
I'm a person of simple pleasures. I like daydreaming, plans and travel, to name a few. Whee, planning! Admittedly, doing these three things in my first two classes of Phase 3 is probably unwise. I feel like the fact I'm pretty sure I've used this gif before says something about my life... But yes, we … Continue reading A wandering heart and mind…on the first day back to class 😉
*Post was written on my trip and posted retroactively - and late on account of bad wifi, a cold and oweek, apologies!"* So, as previously mentioned, I wasn't feeling exactly 100% when I dragged my bags down our steep hill to the coach in Athens. The lack of nighttime cold meds was really starting to … Continue reading Athens, and the end of the road
*Post was written on my trip and posted - a bit more than intended, apologies for my cold - retroactively on account of bad wifi (and said cold!)* So, we left Rome the next morning bright and early for what was an all travel day, puntucated with a stop in Pompeii. Pompeii was again, about … Continue reading Pompeii, Corfu, jetskis and the Contiki cough
*Again, this is a post written on my trip and posted retroactively on account of poor wifi.* So, after Florence we headed out to Rome, which was another pretty drive. The Italian countryside is really beautiful, and somewhere I'd definitely love to go back and explore some more. We stopped at one rest stop on … Continue reading Turning up the heat in Rome and the Vatican City!
*So, yeah, the wifi once we reached Italy and Greece was just not good enough for posting pics, to Facebook or to the blog, so these posts were written on the trip and are being posted retrospectively here. Apologies, but it was the best I could do!* So, after Venice we headed to Florence, with … Continue reading Florence, hailstorms and motor vehicle accidents
So, we broke up our 7 - whyyy?! - hour bus ride from the French Riviera to Venice with a stop at a designer outlet mall in a place called Serraville. The outlet mall is like an outdoor complex, and it had all the major name brands - Prada, Gucci, Versace, etc - and some … Continue reading Viva Venice!
So, after a drive that felt like forever - this coach is fine, its got music, A/C, but after being on it for 7 plus hours it feels like a prison - we pulled up to our "campsite" in the South of France. We did have one stop in a place called Arles, which is … Continue reading Arles, Nice, Monaco and the death of my phone
