Bangkok

As the major hub for getting anywhere in South East Asia, Bangkok is a lively metropolitan city, with all the conveniences of any Western city. Getting to each destination is easy and there are always so many options for things to do. While most travellers I meet don’t have positive feedback about Bangkok, I for one love the city! There’s

Ayutthaya

A former capital of Thailand, Ayutthaya was a power house. It even held the record for becoming the largest city in the 1700’s for having over 1 million inhabitants. It was also a trading center between Asia in the East and Europe in the West. That was until (former) Burma burnt it to the ground. But when I visited, it

Vancouver Seawall

Nearly everyone I met in Vancouver told me the same story. They were only visiting the city for a couple weeks, which somehow turned into years, and none of them had a return ticket back home. Who can blame them? As one of Canada’s largest outdoor playgrounds, the ocean is steps away and the mountains’, a skip. So when I

Banff

Nestled within Banff National Park itself, Banff town is the epitome of Canadian culture. It’s surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, trailing with turquoise glacial water and filled with the smell of pine. Oh and you’ll likely come across wildlife on your daily commute! I jumped on the chance to visit the town, even if it was a short one, and
