This Canadian girl's passion for travel comes from two very adventurous parents...my brother and I spent most of our youth traveling all over North America in the family campervan, airplane & boat - going as far north as Tuktoyaktuk on the Arctic Sea...and as far south as Mexico and beyond - doing lots of adventurey stuff...canoeing, surfing, fishing, camping, hiking, skiing, exploring, jellyfish poking...it was the best childhood ever!
Nowadays, most of my vaycay-time is spent in and around "Los Cabos" on the tip of beautiful Baja California Sur, Mexico. A sandy wasteland of scrubby cacti that cascades into deep azul seas. A perfect chill-out locale from my crazy-ass job.
But did you know, that after a milestone birthday, the desire to visit one really fabulous locale somewhere else in this beautiful world is beyond irresistible? So off I went. Australia was a blast, mate, the Cuban countryside amazing, and the magical lands of Peru...well magical. My last trip was a once-in-a-lifetime journey across the wintery lands of Russia and Siberia, and camping out in a Mongolian Ger. Next up, a stopover in Africa before I embark on a series of fantastic volunteering gigs, hiking some active volcanos, and learning to sail the south seas.
...oh, and there is no way I can keep it all to myself anymore...I must blog!
I never wanted to travel, and now I’ve been all over the shop, I don’t know if it’s changed me that much, really. I mean when I go home I still like a biscuit and a cup o tea. I’m well happy. Cause, you can be into travelling but the world’s only so big, innit. So, eventually you’re going to run out of places to visit. Where as biscuits, there's loads of them – Karl Pilkington - An Idiot Abroad
