What's going on in the world lately is overwhelmingly negative & more often than not nowadays, absolutely heartbreaking. From cyber bullying to war, the world has become filled with energy that fuels social confinement and government corruption. Violence has become overwhelming but silence has too. But it's hard to be vocal in a world filled … Continue reading World Peace
So hot. SO hot. But worth it. This trip was a bit of a "Hail Mary" if I'm being completely honest. When mom and I first talked about all the places we wanted to travel before I returned back to Canada, we included this country because it seemed mysterious & of course it was another one … Continue reading Myanmar (Burma)
A weekend in Cambodia? Don't mind if I do! For those of you that don't know, I was in southern Cambodia in 2015 for a volunteer program. I flew into Phnom Penh, bussed to Sihanoukville then took a boat to Koh Rong. I spent 2 weeks on Koh Rong island getting my second scuba diving certification, doing a marine … Continue reading Cambodia
Laos People’s Democratic Republic
Let's talk about how much I love Laos. I've recently caught the travel bug. It started when I set off on my 6 month internship placement in the Philippines. I've been travelling back and forth to Thailand since I came to this side of the world. The travel bug is a hard thing to shake... … Continue reading Laos People’s Democratic Republic
I'm not quite done with the Philippines yet... Before heading to Thailand to hang out with mom & dad for a while, I came to Palawan to see some sights I've been dying to see for some time now. You all know Meagan by now I hope. She did the same program as me and was placed … Continue reading Palawan
Iloilo... the city of love. I said it before & I'll say it again, this city stole my heart. Maybe it was was the people I met & the places they took me too. Maybe it was just the length of time I spent here. I've learned so much in such a short amount of time. … Continue reading Iloilo
How do I top this?
As my time in the Philippines is very quickly coming to an end, I'm constantly reminding myself how incredible this experience was. I'm really not sure how I'll top this whole experience... But I'm going to try. I thought I'd give you all a little bit of heads up before you start wondering if I'm … Continue reading How do I top this?
My “Filipino” Fam Jam
It has come to my attention that I haven't properly introduced you to some of my favourite people on this side of the world. You've seen their names countless times I'm sure. BUT. Since I have very limited time left with them... *sobs quietly at desk*, I thought I would TRY to explain to you why I love … Continue reading My “Filipino” Fam Jam
Soul Searching: Part 2
Philippines edition. I'm having an amazing time on this side of the world. I think I've made that clear by my previous travel & festival posts. However, I thought for this particular blog, I'd come clean... It hasn't always been more fun in the Philippines. Before I begin, I want to reiterate the fact that I … Continue reading Soul Searching: Part 2

On this fourth weekend of January, it gave me new friends & so much laughter for 3 straight days/nights. Dinagyang festival is held in Iloilo on the fourth Sunday of … Continue reading Dinagyang Festival
