Bangkok baby!

I’m back! I’ve written a post for the Oakville Beaver about my time in India, check that out here. Really, my main lesson from India is that North American McDonald’s suck. McD’s in India don’t sell any beef or pork. No Big Macs! Instead, they have delicious veg options like the McSpicy Paneer (basically deep … Continue reading


Long time no post! I haven’t been feeling so great the last few days and I was stuck without internet while in Agra/Jaipur/Pushkar. That’s my excuse! In the mean time, I’ve seen the Taj Mahal, visited a city in India where alcohol and meat are banned, and eaten Thai food in Bangkok! That’s where I … Continue reading

Delhi: Bamboozling

Cayley and I are in Delhi now after a few days in Goa, and the two places are very different. Whereas Goa was very laid back and beachy with a hippie vibe, Delhi is more intense and varied. Our hostel also happens to be 100 degrees all the time and is filled with mosquitos and … Continue reading

Trainin’ in India

I thought long and hard about the clever titles I could have used for this post, but then I gave up. There are so many train songs and three of them are currently playing in my head at the same time. Oh well. This post will be especially interesting to you if you plan on … Continue reading

Sweat, smoke and sarees

Well, it’s our third day in India and we’ve already experienced a lot: a festival, a temple, an ashram and the gate of India, just to name a few. Yesterday we accidentally stumbled upon the biggest festival in India. It’s called Ganesh Chaturthi and it’s pure insanity. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many … Continue reading

Jai ho!

Hello from India! I just met up with my friend Cayley at the Mumbai airport. Our first impression of India? It’s 3am and it’s steaming hot. Well, it’s monsoon season, so at least it’s not raining! On our drive from the airport to our hostel we saw about a million strands of Christmas lights strung everywhere, a … Continue reading

A safari in pictures

While I lost most of my photos due to a memory card issue, I managed to make a slideshow with the pictures I’ve taken in the last three days (it’s set to Lion King music, obviously). I also made a YouTube channel to make posting videos easier, so hopefully there will be more to come!

“She’s the whitest person I’ve ever seen!”-a laughing Maasai child, speaking about me

Info: For a more comprehensive recap of my safari experience, check out my posting for the Oakville Beaver here. It’s not everyday that you’re asked to be the wife of someone you just met. When that person is a Maasai chief with three wives already and the proposal is taking place next to a freshly … Continue reading
