I’m coming home!

This is it! I’m currently in the Honolulu airport, ready to fly back to Canada. I can’t believe it’s over. I’ve already cried and I’m anticipating more waterworks as the plane pulls away. I can’t even imagine staying in one place for more than a few weeks at a time, never mind a few months! … Continue reading

Mele kalikimaka from Hawaii!

I’m in Hawaii! I haven’t updated in a while, I know, but I’ve been having fun in the sun! In the mean time, I wrote an article for the Oakville Beaver about my adventurous times so far, read that here. So far in Hawaii I’ve shot a gun (for the first time), hiked a mountain … Continue reading

In an Aeroplane Over the (lake): Skydiving in Taupo, New Zealand

I jumped out of a plane at 12,000 feet this morning. No, really! Thankfully, I was strapped to someone who knew what they were doing. There was also a parachute involved apparently, though I was too focused on the tiny little Monopoly houses below me to notice. This, my friends, is the story of my … Continue reading

Dolphin Encounter, NZ

While I usually spend my mornings sluggishly checking my emails or eating last night’s dessert, this morning was different! I got up bright and early, put on a wetsuit, and jumped into the Pacific Ocean!

Give … Continue reading

Sydney: Sun, sand, sights, surprises!

I’ve written a bit more about my time in Sydney and Melbourne for the Oakville Beaver, check that article out here. After a whirlwind five days in Sydney, I’m now in the most “liveable city in the world,” Melbourne! I absolutely loved Sydney and did so much in the short time I was there. I … Continue reading

Surfing safari

I just finished my first surfing lesson ever, and it was great! I actually managed to stand not one but FOUR times, which was awesome and unexpected. Sure, we got huge boards that were slightly soft instead of hard…but beginners are allowed a few cheats, okay! Our group of 12 people was dominated by Canadians … Continue reading

Island in the sun

Hey there! I’m currently in Brisbane after a few nights camping on Fraser Island, which was an awesome time. Fraser Island is the largest sand island in the world, and therefore all of my things are covered in a fine layer of white sand at the moment. The trip involved some crazy 4×4 drives through … Continue reading
