We headed to Canyonlands National Park first, which was only about 30 minutes from Moab. This Park was a bit different from the rest we had visited. The reason for this may have been its size – this place was freaking HUGE. It seemed like the canyons went on forever. Had we had bikes this would be the greatest place to go for a ride. … Continue reading Day 5: Canyonlands National Park and Colorado
This mornings wake up was a million and one times better than the night before. Sleeping in a clean, comfy bed really does wonders. We took it easy in the morning knowing that the only thing on our to-do list was Zion National Park.
It took us about 1.5 hours to get to Zion. Zion was much more than I anticipated. There was an adorable town right by the national park with lots of restaurants, ice cream parlours and little shops. Continue reading “Day 2: Zion National Park”
Okay, technically Day 2 – but day 1 was just full of flights and wine so I’m not counting that (although it was fun).
We spent our first night at a sketchy hotel within walking distance of the Vegas strip. I’ve stayed in some weird places but this may have taken the spot of the weirdest place I’ve ever stayed. At the very least it gave me a whole new perspective of vegas white trash. I was really skeptical of getting bed bugs or our car broken into but I’m happy to report that we lived through the night accident free!!! Speaking of cars, we arrived to enterprise late and they gave us a free upgrade. We’re currently roaming around Utah in an adorable little fiat!! Continue reading “Day 1: Vegas and Page, AZ”

Out of all the Hawaiian Islands, I decided to go to Oahu. I heard that in order to explore the other islands that you needed to rent a car and I didn’t have that in my budget for the week. However, after talking to a friend who recently visited Maui, I was told that the hostel he stayed at would provide shuttles to the spots that visitors wanted to see – so definitely check that out if you’re trying to decide between islands and won’t be renting a car. Oahu has a reliable and easy bus system which made travelling the island much cheaper. It’s only 2.50 for a one way trip and you can get all the way around the island by bus.. it just may take a while. Continue reading “Solo Travel: One Week in O’ahu, Hawaii”

As we rolled into the New Year, I headed to New York. I got a few days off from work, and was off on my first adventure with my travel benefits to the big apple with my two sisters and mom. We were leaving from Thunder Bay and had a short layover in Toronto so we had to rush through customs and barely made it … Continue reading 2 Days in NYC
Exciting news!!! I have finally booked a real adventure for the first time in almost a year. I had a mini -okay not so mini- mental breakdown last week. Being in my final year of university I am constantly having a personal crisis with what I will do next year. But quite honestly the question is much deeper than what I will do, it is … Continue reading Taking The Next Step
