I don't know where this summer has gone, anyone else know? It has flown by so quickly... hard to believe it's late-September! Thinking back on the past few months, I've been quite busy with napping on the beach, swimming in the sea and being a darling of a host to my several bunches of visitors!… Continue reading The Canadians flock to Malta!
Honey, I was home! It had been just over a year since I had been home to Canada, so it was about time for the annual 18 hour trek home! After a 4 am start in Malta, paying a visit to both Frankfurt and Reykjavík airport, I finally made it back to Halifax. I kept… Continue reading Where’s the lobster rolls, eh?
For two weeks in April, my mum was taking an Italian course in Padua, Italy. On her weekends she was visiting family in Bologna, Conegliano and San Giovanni Rotondo... and visiting some prosecco wineries along the way (surprise surprise). For her last weekend before flying back to Canada, we decided to meet for a weekend in… Continue reading Weekend away to Siena!
This past few months have been crazy and have flown by so fast – how is it already end of April!? Since the start of 2018, my job has taken me to Gran Canaria, London, Hungary and now southern Italy, more specifically – Sicily. Italy may just be my favourite country… especially when it comes… Continue reading Back to Sicily: A visit to Ortigia and Siracusa!
The past three weeks were spent scattered across Paris, London and bits of Hungary for work, but I managed to squeeze in some quality family time and some holiday as well. The hiatus started in Paris, where I visited Bryan for a quick weekend to see him play in the Coupe de France. From there,… Continue reading Buda and Pest!
So This One Time in Malta we went to Gozo! Let’s talk about the other island: Gozo. This one can be easily missed by people who think they can tackle Malta in 3 days as a quick city/country-break. Gozo is known for the Victoria Citadella and the Azure Window, which unfortunately collapsed last year (the… Continue reading Sunday getaway to Gozo
So This One Time in Malta…. We had a winter (believe it or not!) So, *Plot Twist* Malta actually gets cold in the winter. No, it’s not a hibernate-and-never-leave-the-house type of winter, nor do we require heated garages or underground tunnels to get from building to building, but it does get bone-chilling cold. I know… Continue reading A Winter in Malta
Some of the perks to my job include travelling, not too often, but they have been in some interesting and fun places (for example: Madeira last March). I was quite excited when my first trip of 2018 was going to be to Las Palmas, in the Gran Canary Islands! Although we were there for work,… Continue reading On to the next island: Gran Canaria
This past Christmas was spent in France.... more specifically, Annecy and La Clusaz! Annecy is nestled beneath the French Alps in the Haute-Savoie region. It was a winter wonderland, with the Christmas markets in Annecy and fresh new snow in La Clusaz; it reminded me of my childhood Christmases in Beautiful British Columbia. When I was younger,… Continue reading La La La Clusaz and Annecy!
Pardon me, but this post is quite delayed! Life has gotten away from me within past month with a busy work schedule and some more visitors. After two months on the island after my trip home, it was time to leave for some fresh air and a change of scenery. Bry relocated to France this… Continue reading Bonjour, Chaumont!
