I created this page for women with curious hearts and adventurous souls. Women who want to expand their minds and comfort zones. Women who want to create a life of freedom and passion. If that’s you, then you’ve come to the right place.
If you are looking for simple travel inspiration and great travel guides, you can find that here, too!
My first foray into long term travel started in 2017 after I graduated from my second degree and knew I wanted to see the world before settling down into, yet, another career. A 6 month around-the-world adventure that took me to 3 continents and 10 different countries was just the ticket!
Coming back to Canada exhausted but incredibly inspired, I started into my career as an interior designer. While the job satisfied my constant urge to be creative, the limitations of the 9-5 work schedule was really dampening my spirit and spark. Always feeling like there was something missing from my life, I bundled up all my holiday days and took off to India and Sri Lanka for a month. Wow, what a life changing trip. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend adding it to your bucket list.
Taking the Leap
That was in January 2020, and I had yet to find out about what this year would bring us. But since integrating back into life in Canada, I spent a lot of brain power figuring out how I could make a nomadic lifestyle work. I feel this may be a constant struggle for some of you, as well.
After many evenings and late night discussions with my partner, I decided to quit my job. I knew I wanted to do something travel related, but had no idea where to start.
I’ve spent a lot of my life playing it safe and sticking to what was ‘normal’. It was time for me to take the leap! Right in the middle of a pandemic…
Living Life My Way
While I find it hard to keep my mind from images of failure and regret, images of lounging on a white sand beach with my laptop are far more powerful. I know that I have made the right decision for me.
Is it going to be hard? Yes. There is nothing easy about being a travel blogger. But it allows me to live life by my own rules and that’s the best freedom I could ask for.
