The best things to do in Akko: Exploring Akko’s history, food, and more!

I stand off to the corner of the market street, peering down at the map on my phone trying to figure out which fork in the alleyway I want to take. The crowd bustling around me, a cacophony of laughter and bargaining as locals buy their vegetables and fish from the vendors. One of the vendors sees me and my map and catches my eye before pointing to the left. I smile in appreciation and tuck my phone back into my bag, choosing to trust this stranger’s sense of direction over mine as I explore...

Weekend guide to Prince Edward County wineries & more

When it comes to Canadian wine most of us tend to think of the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia or Niagara on the Lake in Southern Ontario. However, on the shores of Lake Ontario is another area known for wineries (along with a few cideries and breweries as well!). This area is Prince Edward County and while it might have once been a local secret, the secret is definitely out because it’s become one of the most popular getaway destinations in Ontario. Here are my suggestions on how to...

The best things to do in Dahab, Egypt: A bohemian diver’s paradise

When it comes to travel in Egypt we tend to think of the ancient history. The pyramids and the temples. Mummies and Nile cruises. Among the enchanting ruins is a splattering of chaos, especially when it comes to Cairo. Bazaars and souks will have vendors calling after you for your business as other locals promise to take you on a special guided tour. Egypt’s main attractions are awe-inspiring and magical and I loved my time exploring them. But I also found travel in Egypt to be exhausting....

The best things to do in Eilat, Israel: Israel’s Red Sea resort city

When it comes to travel in Israel most people tend to focus on the central part of the country. Cities like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem see the majority of tourists and for those who do venture off the typical tourist trail, they tend to head north. However, the south of Israel is equally as beautiful. The sprawling deserts with red-toned mountains, vibrant blue waters of the Red Sea, and lively resort city Eilat make this part of the country a great place to explore, especially if you like warmer...

A Santorini itinerary for first-timers: 3-5 days in Santorini, Greece

No visit to the Greek islands is complete without a visit to Santorini, at least for a couple of days. I spent a week here and got to explore different parts of the island during my time. That being said, I know not everyone has that long to spend here but, in my point of view, you should spend at least 3 days in Santorini. It may be small, but there is a lot to see and do and, as I found, part of the charm is being able to relax and just enjoy the atmosphere. Which is why I’ve created this...

1 day in Athens, Greece: A history lover’s itinerary

Athens, Greece is amazing. I landed here after spending 2.5 weeks backpacking through Morocco and I honestly could have kissed the ground when I arrived and started to explore the city (you can read my real thoughts on female travel in Morocco here). Sure, Athens has a couple rough bits and yes, you do need to be aware of pickpockets, but I really enjoyed my time there. The lively squares filled with tavernas, the street art hidden around the corners, the cheap food options, and, of course, the...

2 weeks in Greece: A Greece itinerary for island lovers

Greece truly is a bucket list destination. With so much to see and do, an incredible history, and some of the best food I’ve ever had, Greece quickly became one of my favourite destinations and somewhere I plan to return to again soon. However, planning your Greece itinerary can be tricky because it has so much to offer. From ruins and museums to beaches and islands, it can be hard to pick and choose if you only have 2 weeks in Greece....

Luxury hotels in Santorini: Why they are worth the splurge

When it comes to exploring the Greek Islands, Santorini seems to be at the top of everyone’s list, for fairly obvious reasons. This postcard-perfect island is stunning. The white villages perched on the rocky clifftops look like they popped off the pages of a children’s storybook and the vibrant blue domes contrasting against the white buildings are brilliant against a backdrop of the equally blue sea and sky. Santorini is romantic fairytale that everyone wants to, and should, experience...

Whistler village is a famous Canadian destination, especially among skiers and snowboarders.

Off the beaten track in Banff: Alternative things to do in Banff in summer

What is the first thing you think of when you someone says Banff? Chances are its Lake Louise, that’s what most people picture. Having been, I can’t say I blame them. The lake and surrounding scenery is beautiful. But, while I’m glad to have seen it, sharing it with about 20,000 people in a single...
