Snow!

CZECH REPUBLIC | Tuesday, 21 Jan 2014 | Views [457]

It's snowing today!! Just when I thought I wouldn't see Prague in white this time and would have to come back. While walking in the rain yesterday was more ridiculous than romantic, walking in the snow today was just as magical as I imagined it to be.... Read more >

Back in Namche Bazar

NEPAL | Saturday, 19 Oct 2013 | Views [654]

Altitude: 3440m. We just came back from dinner. I had a lovely pork chop with red wine sauce and fries, freshly cooked for me. Very yummy! :) Not exactly what I dreamed about a few days ago - food dreams have become a daily sleep ritual for me since ... Read more >

Back in Debuche

NEPAL | Friday, 18 Oct 2013 | Views [975]

Altitude: 3700m. We are making our way down. The sad news is we never made it to the top. The weather didn't look like it was getting better with what looked like a cold front heading towards Everest, suggesting another snow storm. There was also ... Read more >

Lobuche

NEPAL | Wednesday, 16 Oct 2013 | Views [467]

Altitude: 4940m.  We have made it here after an arduous walk up and across some very snowy terrain. Today was, without a doubt, the toughest slog after Tok Tok. The trail seemed almost endless, completely surrounded with white for hours and beyond.... Read more >

Pheriche

NEPAL | Tuesday, 15 Oct 2013 | Views [565]

Altitude: 4270m. This is the highest I've ever been! And I'm only going to continue climbing! We treaded through some snow (and slush) to get here. Thankfully, even with the recent weather and the conditions it's caused, it's been an alright day.... Read more >

Au Revoir Montréal - je vous aime beaucoup :(

USA | Monday, 25 Mar 2013 | Views [1019]

I left Montréal with a heavy heart. I didn't expect to feel like this especially since my next stop has been my dream for a very long time - New York City. The train ride from Montréal to New York took 12 hours but was pretty scenic.... Read more >

Montréal

CANADA | Saturday, 23 Mar 2013 | Views [293]

It's been a month since I left sunny Brisbane. I'm currently in the trés cool city of Montréal. I wasn't sure if I liked it on my first day but I blame that on being tired and visiting the touristy area of Vieux-Montréal. I did ... Read more >

Snowboarding, hot yoga and a whole lotta food!

CANADA | Wednesday, 20 Mar 2013 | Views [531]

It's my last day in Calgary. I have to admit I have not done a lot of walking in the city. In fact, yesterday was the first time I walked around Lindsay's neighbourhood, Bridgelands.   It's been a very chilled out visit to say the least. I've ... Read more >

Hello Canada!

CANADA | Tuesday, 12 Mar 2013 | Views [300]

I know I've been a bit silent (and slack!) ever since leaving Alaska. I can't believe how swiftly time flies - I'm at the end of my week in Vancouver This time around, I'm staying at my aunt's. It's been a lot more than ten years since I first ... Read more >

I love Alaska!

USA | Tuesday, 5 Mar 2013 | Views [399]

I'll say it loud and proud, I love Alaska! Only 3% of tourists coming to Alaska make it into the Artic Circle and of that, an unknown but suspiciously small percentage bother to come during winter. I am in that very minority group and am happy where ... Read more >

Below freezing in Fairbanks

USA | Monday, 4 Mar 2013 | Views [295]

You realize that Anchorage isn't cold when you come to Fairbanks. This is a completely different level of cold. I think my thermals, fleece and down are required every second I am out. If I could take a quilt with me, I'd be better. And yet, there ... Read more >

I think I am in love with Alaska

USA | Thursday, 28 Feb 2013 | Views [372]

I had a super early start today, leaving at 4am to make my 7am flight to Seattle. I must've been so sleepy that I hadn't even realized the plane had landed until I woke up to see that half the flight was already gone! Thank goodness ... Read more >
