How to Spend 10 Days in Ontario

•••
Ever since I set foot in Canada for the first time four years ago, I've been in love. I was smitten by the friendliness of locals and the beauty of the scenery alike.

Niagara Falls: The USA or Canadian Side?

•••
Ahh, Niagara Falls. One of the world's greatest waterfalls, a wonder of North America, and a true Natural beauty. Right?

I took an overnight bus from Vancouver to Lake Louise/Banff and was quite surprised to see a frozen lake and snow on the ground in spring. The views are stunning r[...]

Work and Travel: A Winter Season in Whistler

•••
After working in an office for 5 years and basically leading a relationship with my computer, I decided to take the leap: leave everything for the unknown and actually live life instead of letting it go by. It was always my dream to travel but to transform this dream into a plan took some time and organising - so worth it! Completely in love with skiing, [...]

7 Highlights along the Pacific Northwest Coast

When I plan a trip, I have a tendency to pack a lot in. I want to do everything, which makes me a prime victim for 'travel burnout'. The thing is, there are just so many exciting adventures to have around the world. This isn't any less true when exploring along the North American west coast. In my recent road trip from the absolutely wonderful Vancouver, Can[...]
