Vancouver has been on our list for a while as a place we’d like to try to live in. I’ve personally been against living in Vancouver because of the busy/expensive lifestyle that often goes with it. While the city is busy and expensive I do think that there are some cool neighbourhoods I could happily […]
If you walk through Puerta De San Juan and walk along Paseo del Morro it will take you along the walls of the city and the San Felipe del Morro Fortress. You will find a cat sanctuary. You won’t miss it. It’s impossible to miss all the meowing, frolicking friends. There are hundreds of them. […]
After a month in Martinique. San Juan is where I switch from saying “je ne parle pas français” to “yo no hablo español.” I am still working on grasping languages. Even English is hard some days.

Naturally, we wanted to explore more of Martinique so we decided to rent a car for a couple days and hit the road! Martinique is a small, but super interesting island with rainforests, volcanoes, and magnificent beaches.

“Ich bin ein Berliner” – John F. Kennedy. Unlike the former U.S. president I mean the doughnut when I say “Ich bin ein Berliner,” but I’ll also say I wish I was a Berliner (person). Never have I witnessed a city so full of strength, beauty, and perseverance. We stayed in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg neighbourhood […]
CATS. If you hate cats do not continue reading… and maybe we shouldn’t be friends.
I know I’m going on and on about the tourist things in Dubrovnik, but what you really want to see is where Game of Thrones was filmed. Well, seeing as I’m a big nerd and hate to disappoint here are the filming locations we visited!
I mean “sick” like the kids say it. After a wild and fast paced three weeks travelling with Alex and Mal, John and I were so relieved to settle down in this small Croatian town and relax on the Adriatic Sea. Dubrovnik has perfected the “easy livin’ lifestyle” that I am so fond of. We […]
