El Paso Mountains
El Paso, the Sun City, offers an eclectic mix of American and Mexican culture, a fusion that is particularly noticeable in the mix of Mexican and Texan foods served around the city. Whether you’re visiting for the city’s cultural offerings or for more adventurous reasons — such as for rock...
Snowshoeing Mount Seymour
I always imagined snowshoes to be an essential tool in the past. Necessary equipment to make life easier in snowy regions but is obsolete in modern times. Picture Ethan Hawke in White Fang, strapping huge ‘tennis rackets’ on his feet to wade through the snow. Essential for fur traders and...
First time snowboarding. Failed experience
Vancouver is the perfect base if you’re into winter sports. I noticed this fact as soon as I set foot on Canadian soil, and this was in summer! I promised myself that the upcoming winter season would be the moment where I would set foot on a slope for the first time...
Where to see the Northern Lights
The aurora borealis is the colorful phenomenon created when electrically charged particles within the earth’s magnetosphere collide with particles in the solar wind. The Northern Lights, as they’re also known, are best seen in late August through April from countries near the North and South poles. These neon ribbons of light...
Snowboarding for the first time
I wish I could say I looked like the man in the feature photo on my first day on the slope. Confidently balancing on my board, gliding down the slope with all the grace of a gazelle. Unfortunately, I looked more like a baby trying to take its first steps, not so...
Manhattan city skyline

I love exploring a country by car; you can stop wherever you want and discover areas you otherwise...
Grouse Mountain Winter Wonderland, Canada
Winter is upon us and the proud Vancouver mountains were beckoning us to explore their snowy peaks. Grouse Mountain, the peak of Vancouver, had just enjoyed some fresh snowfall and while the ski slopes were still closed, visitors can explore the mountain all year round. My boyfriend had never been in snow, so I...
Whistler views, Canada
When I moved to Vancouver almost three months ago, I made sure to take advantage of every free moment to explore the city and surrounding area. Vancouver city is easy to explore in one day, but you will miss out on all that the Vancouver area has to offer. If you...
