This blog was created in 2007 when I headed to Perth, Western Australia for a year-long study abroad program. There are still lots of great stories and pictures from that trip, though I got way behind on my blogging and the stories end abruptly in September, 2007 (I was in Aus until Christmas Eve!)
Although I've traveled a lot since then, I left this blog in a state of neglect for several years. But I figured another school-related international adventure was a reason to get things started again! In August 2011, I packed up my car and made the drive from my hometown of Toronto to the sunny city of Los Angeles to begin my Master's degree at the University of Southern California (USC). As an urban planning major, I wanted to be in a big, exciting city- and the nice weather here doesn't hurt!
Summer 2012 is yet another adventure - I found myself an internship in Beijing, China. Read on for stories and adventures during my two months working and living in Beijing and my month traveling around China!
Quick about me: I'm 26 years old, and I've now been to 16 countries and four continents. I've also lived in five different countries (Canada, France, Australia, the United States and China). I love traveling, though to be honest, I still think Toronto is the best city in the world. Craziest place I've been hands down is Syria. I don't even think I could name a most beautiful or best place because everywhere is awesome in its own weird way 😊
