Cruising & Making an Impact with Fathom to the Dominican Republic

This past week I went on a unique adventure—my first cruise, my first time to the Dominican Republic, and my first impact travel adventure. I set sail with Fathom on June 19th from the Port of Miami, Florida on my one week adventure that would take me to the Dominican Republic. But Fathom isn’t just […]

Ecotourism in Jordan: Interview with A Piece of Jordan

When I recently was visiting Jordan, an organization called A Piece of Jordan reached out to me about going on a community excursion while I was in Petra. Unfortunately my schedule didn’t allow for it, but when I took a deeper look into A Piece of Jordan, I realized the great tours they offered that allowed […]

Channeling My Inner Lawrence of Arabia in Wadi Rum, Jordan

As I watched out the window and saw the scenery change before my eyes, the regular roadside terrain of Jordan became miles and miles of velvety orange sand. Driving in Jordan was always peaceful, there weren’t traffic jams, and you’d drive for miles without seeing much of anything, but the moment I hit the desert of […]

Balancing Working in Travel & Traveling: Interview with Megan

As a study abroad adviser, travel is definitely always in Megan Ostovarpour’s mind, but as a full-time professional, she has decided to prioritize both a career in her home base of Orange County, California and travel.

I Just Didn’t Like It… (Part 5)

Travellers tales of the places they just didn’t like. We’ve all had those places that we could live without returning to again, the thing is, many of us don’t talk about them! We get so caught up on sharing the stories of those places we fell in love with and don’t share the stories of […]

Teara Lab: Japanese Fusion Sandwiches (Toronto)

What on earth is a Japanese fusion sandwich? I had the same question when I was invited to attend a menu tasting of the new Japanese fusion sandwich shop, Teara Lab which is opening today (May 27, 2016) in Toronto. I am someone who likes to explore new cuisines and food, and thankfully, living in Toronto, I […]

Cooking Up a Storm with Beit Sitti in Jordan

As we layered in the fresh tomatoes, followed by the cooked chicken, cauliflower and eggplant, and topped with soaked rice seasoned by turmeric and salt, I was excited to see how our ma’aloubeh would turn out. Meanwhile, I helped chop tomatoes and cucumber to add to our farmer’s salad, and was led outside by the […]

An Indian Jewel: The Taj Mahal

I wanted to keep this post short and sweet, because when it comes to the jewel of India, the Taj Mahal, I feel like it speaks for itself. This ivory-white marble mausoleum in Agra, India was built from 1632-1653 and was commissioned by Shah Jahan in memory of his wife. At the time, the completion […]

Exploring Graffiti Alley in Toronto

This weekend is a long weekend in Canada, and instead of leaving the city like most people do, I decided to have a bit of a staycation in Toronto. Yesterday I explored the East End of the city, an area where I never get to since I live in the West End, and today I […]
