Carter’s Beach, a Turquoise Wonder

Nova ScotiaYesterday’s, guess this turquoise gem is none other than…Carter’s Beach in Port Mouton, Nova Scotia, Canada! Would you have expected this turquoise gem to be located in Canada? Let alone Nova Scotia? It’s not only the Caribbean and tropical destinations that have fine white sandy beaches. Yet this white sand beach is lined by evergreens, not palm trees. The water may be colder up here in the Atlantic Ocean, but this particular beach is still pretty TURQUOISE. Continue reading

Canada’s East Coast Beaches are the Bomb

Nova ScotiaNova ScotiaMy happy place is the beach. I am in my element if by the sea. No matter how rotten of a day I’ve just had, if I make my way to the ocean I know I’ll be alright. My heart has always belonged to the east coast of Canada, and maybe that’s partly because its my home. Even after visiting 32 countries around the world and putting my toes in the sands of countless beaches, I’m still partial to Canada’s east coast beaches. I would prefer if the waters were a bit more turquoise, that palm trees lined the coast, and that the temperatures were a lot more tropical, but my heart and soul belongs to Atlantic Canada’s beaches, especially the ones in southern Nova Scotia.

When One Journey Ends, Begin Another

Yarmouth Light HouseOver the last couple weeks, as I’ve been summarizing my last 14 months of travels, I have been asked the question: what’s next? by numerous bloggers. That’s a really good question! I’m unable to answer this question in entirety, as I do not know what the future holds. I do know that I’ll be starting on another journey. When one journey ends, the only thing to do is start another one. Regardless if I am traveling, my journey continues. Each of us is on our very own unique journey. Continue reading

My Journey is Far From Over

AustraliaIn a world where so many are out of work, I am thankful I have a job. I am grateful for the opportunity to have taken a leave from my teaching position to travel for 14 months. Few jobs have such flexibility. Yes, of course I’d like to continue traveling the world, but unfortunately my sabbatical is up and my funds have run out. The time flew by. Time to be back in the classroom. At this point, I’m just thankful to have a job. I need a way to save up for more trips right?

Enjoying Atlantic Canada’s Fall Season at the Beach

New BrunswickNew BrunswickAlthough I am no longer in a tropical destination or exotic location, there is no reason why I can’t still enjoy my favorite place–the beach. Now that I am back in Canada, I can appreciate being in one location for longer than a couple weeks. I am lucky enough to live by the coast so I can enjoy the place I always want to be–by the sea. In this moment, I can savour in the ability of still experiencing my passion in my home country: Canada. Continue reading

Don’t Miss Seeing these 5 Destinations…

Hawaii

Hawaii

After traveling around the world for 14 months, visiting 34 one of a kind destinations, I think my 5 favorite places are Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Australia, New Zealand, and Italy/Greece (yes I know that’s technically six places). Don’t get me wrong, I love ALL of the places I visited and would be happy living in any of the destinations, however, there is something about these 5 destinations that have a special hold on my heart. I’ve also spent the most amount of time in these 5 places which definitely does impact one’s connection in that place. The more time I spent in the locations the more I fell in love with them. Europe as a continent stole my heart, but Italy and Greece by far are my favorites (oh, but Croatia is so high up there too). After reflecting for days after my sabbatical I think I can say with assurance that these are my favorites.
