2019 Year In Review

Another year in the books. This year I slowed down a little on travel solely because I had a huge, bucket list trip planned for the end of the year to East Africa. Trips like that don’t come cheap, and I don’t have endless vacation days, so there was a lot of buildup all year for the trip of a lifetime.

Saying that, I still had a lot of fun adventures throughout 2019. Here’s a little throwback and review of some of those adventures.

January: Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario

I never usually visit Niagara in the winter, it’s most popular in the summer months. However, I was invited to visit for the Ice Wine Festival and I can never say no to a wine adventure. Visiting NOTL in the winter was actually a blast, it was less busy, and it was a unique way to see the vineyards during a different time of year!

February: Strathroy, Ontario

A fun little getaway I did with Middlesex County. My friend Asal and I headed to Strathroy, Ontario for a wintery getaway in February. We went snowshoeing, enjoyed the little town and all it had to offer, and the highlight was definitely visiting an alpaca farm where we got to WALK ALPACAS!!!!

March: Colombia

My first trip to South America and I fell absolutely head over heels for Colombia. My friend Katy and I visited Medellin (and area), Cartagena, and San Andres, and from the beautiful beaches, to the incredible city, this country is so easy to fall in love with. I definitely cannot wait to return!

May: Prince Edward County, Ontario

A little girls getaway with my mom and sister to Prince Edward County is the perfect way to spend a spring weekend. I had never been to PEC before. Known as the second wine country of Ontario (next to Niagara), PEC was filled with small town charm and great wineries and breweries.

August: East Coast, Canada

A little Canadian getaway in the beautiful summer. In August I ventured to Halifax and Prince Edward Island in the East Coast of Canada. I had only spent time on the East Coast when I was a kid and it was fun to head there to really experience it. Amazing breweries, and seafood, and the perfect spot for a little getaway in my own country.

December: East Africa

Lastly, my bucket list adventure, and my 30th country before I was 30. East Africa was something I dreamed about for so many years, specifically, trekking to see the mountain gorillas in Uganda. It was so incredible to experience this trip with my best friend by my side, and through such a unique overland camping experience. Definitely one I will NEVER forget.
