I’d been to London 9 years ago on a stopover as a rather broke individual. The Thames had proved an easy route to follow when I couldn’t afford a map. It had been lovely. In town for work this time, my carry-on filled with blazers, I hopped out of Heathrow rather smoothly (perhaps avoiding this […]Read more "London, England [LHR]"
If you need some hippy vibes/hipster cocktails/sun/R&R, Tulum is the place to be. It’s the perfect mid-bleakest-of-canadian-winters getaway. We rented a bike for a day and biked all the way to the ruins, which are worth a visit. The other days were reserved for lazy beach going with evening spent indulging in food & bars like […]Read more "Tulum, Mexico [CUN]"
After a 4 hour train ride that included apples and sleep masks, we hopped off onto the Saint Petersburg platform. Venice of the North offers up a maze of canals, cafés and nights that last under two hours. The pastel coloured building facades keep you zen and June is the night of white nights day time, […]Read more "Saint Petersburg, Russia [LED]"
Our hiatus has brought us to a few spots we can’t wait to share with you — Cheers to summer! After much anticipation, we had finally landed in Russia. I rapidly breezed over the cyrillic alphabet in transit, ready as ever to switch my Ns for Hs and my Ps for Pies. After passing customs […]Read more "Moscow, Russia [VKO]"

So we are officially switching continents for the next little while, and getting to know places closer to home, for now. Chicago is THE travel discovery of 2014 for me. I booked this trip on a whim because I had enough points to escape for the weekend and play third wheel to one of my […]Read more "Chicago, Illinois [ORD]"
Ilha is a sort of hippy beach paradise where the humid air makes everything feels remote and mysterious. It feels undiscovered, like in a can’t-seem-to-locate-the-place-on-google-maps way. You can try that in a seperate tab if you like. Lagoa azul is a peaceful lagoon worth the visit where you can float around in the heat. Hike […]Read more "Ilha Grande, Brasil [GIG]"
Ever closer to being back in Brazil – here’s another #throwbacktrip in the meantime #tbt On our way from Buenos to Brazil, we decided this was a nature must we needed to witness. Call it a world wonder, a natural beauty, or a gimmicky tourist attraction, Iguaçu is definitely a pretty place, with a couple […]Read more "Iguaçu, Brazil [IGU]"
And the tales from Rio continue. So on one of our nights we made our way to Centro and we stumbled upon Pedra do Sal where we pretended to know how to dance to live samba music. An incredible atmosphere where you get to throw back the best caipirinhas in town (we are not saying […]Read more "Rio de Janeiro, Brazil [SDU]"
