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 […]

Highlights from Orchha, India

Orchha, India is a peaceful town in comparison to the busier and bigger cities in India, and a town that is filled with history and beauty. Sitting alongside the Betwa River, Orchha has gorgeous architecture, friendly people, and can be a great, off-the-beaten-path stop for people looking for something a bit different when visiting India. Last […]

You Gotta Do This: Italy

You Gotta Do This: Italy

Italia, one of my favourite countries in the world, and not just for their pasta (although that definitely gives it a lot of brownie points). I’ve had the chance to travel to Italy on two different occasions, once as a high school student where I visited Rome, Florence and Venice, and another time with my […]

How to Avoid Your Luggage Being Overweight

Every time I travel, my friends and family always seem to be blown away on how I pack. I still don’t consider myself the best packer in the world, but I manage to fit my necessities into a reasonably sized bag (with extra space) each trip I take. So I wanted to share some secrets […]

Five Reasons Why You Should Consider Visiting Toronto

Toronto is one of my favourite cities in the world. I’ve lived here for over three years now and I’m still yet to get sick of it, and for someone who has wanderlust running through my veins, that’s saying something. But there’s one thing that always seems to come up when I meet travelers abroad […]

Two Days in Chicago, Illinois

Two Days in Chicago, Illinois

Chicago can be a great weekend trip, especially if you live in close proximity to the city like me who is based in Toronto, Canada. The flight is under two hours from Toronto, so when my girl friend and I were looking for a weekend trip to take on the Easter long weekend, Chicago seemed […]

A Sleepover on an Indian Train

A Sleepover on an Indian Train

“They don’t stop when you go to get on them.” “They cram as many people in as possible so there’s no room to breathe.” “They’re crawling with cockroaches so you’ll never be able to sleep.” Those were just some of the things I heard about trains in India before traveling there, and yes, trains do […]

Decided to switch up my profile photos for a little bit of summer colour 🌈

Thanks everyone for a great chat on #Asia. Now who's craving some pad thai? #RTWchat pic.twitter.com/DAMPBieiD1

I'd love anyone who has tips or articles on The Philippines to send them my way! Heading there in October :) #RTWchat

A10: Embrace the chaos. Asia can challenge you & push you but it can be amazing if you just let it transform you. #RTWchat

A10: It’s a giant continent. Unless you have endless amounts of time, you’re not going to be able to fit everything in! #RTWchat

Carry US money as well. It always comes in handy. Visa at India/Nepal border didn't accept anything else. #RTWchat twitter.com/BootsnAll/stat…

A9: Keeping an open mind also helps. Embrace that you will be pushed out of your comfort zone! #RTWchat

A9: Doing your research beforehand really helps. I like to talk to other travelers or bloggers who have been there. #RTWchat

The biggest thing! Many places advertise that they are eco-friendly and aren't. Don't believe everything you see! twitter.com/YourHolidayPA/…

A8: Be aware of local scams too! It’s easy to fall for them, so doing some research before is valuable. #RTWchat twitter.com/BootsnAll/stat…

A8: Make sure that you use your common sense. Some people completely lose that when they leave home. #RTWchat twitter.com/BootsnAll/stat…

A7: I'd love to do gorilla trekking in Africa! @TravelYourself's pics were incredible. #RTWchat

Here's a shot in my glory at the Elephant Nature Park. This is one of my favourite travel memories. #RTWchat pic.twitter.com/h5Zp7SkKxu

A7: On a side note though, make sure that u are extra cautious about animal excursions though in Asia, as many aren’t very humane. #RTWchat

A7: You can read about my time at @ElephantNatureP here: twirltheglobe.com/asia/elephant-… one of the best sanctuaries around! #RTWchat

A7: The Elephant Nature Park in Thailand was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. #RTWchat twitter.com/BootsnAll/stat…

I also have no idea why that photo is showing up side ways, but either way, Bun Bo Nam Bo tops my foodie list! #RTWchat
