Six months ago, if you had asked me what I thought the first Central American country I would visit would be, I probably would have said Costa Rica. After all, it does seem to be the most popular tourist destination of the area. And it was the only country that I actually knew anything about. But then, my dad started dating a woman from Panama, and all of that changed. As it…

    Bewitched by Barcelona // 2 Days in Barcelona

Updated December 26, 2017 When I first found £30 tickets from Edinburgh to Barcelona on RyanAir, I thought I was dreaming. It was already 10 pm after all, and I had never seen the tickets drop below £100 before. Not wanting to miss my opportunity, I bought tickets for my boyfriend and me without even stopping to consult him, so it’s a good thing he’s used to me dragging him along on…

Visiting Mackinac Island has always been in the back of my mind ever since I read about the cute little car-free island years ago. My dream finally came true this summer on our way back home from our Canadian road trip, and it was everything that I dreamed it would be. Day One We arrived on Mackinac Island in the early afternoon after crossing the Canadian border and setting up camp in…

Although Manitoulin Island was mostly a stop off point to cut our journey to our next destination in half, we were pleasantly surprised by just how good our experience there turned out to be. To get to the island we took the MS Chi-Cheemaun ferry from Tobermory to South Baymouth. I’d never actually taken a ferry before, so this was a really exciting experience for me. It was a beautiful day, so…

    Two Days in the Bruce Peninsula

    After our time in Toronto, we wanted to experience some of the natural beauty that Canada is so famous for. So, we decided to head up to the Bruce Peninsula for a few days of pure Canadian wilderness and small-town charm. Day One // Bruce Peninsula National Park After stopping to grab groceries (and Tim Horton’s) in Toronto, we were off and running. Once there, we set up camp in Bruce Peninsula National Park. Then, we headed off on our first hike. Bruce Peninsula National Park might be most famous for its cave swimming hole, The Grotto. Shortly after that comes its rock beach, Indian Head Cove. Since the two…

It seems ridiculous that, for a girl who’s done a fair bit of travelling to far off places, I’ve never been to Mexico or Canada. Well, this summer I finally crossed one of those countries off my list and made it up to Canada on a road trip with my boyfriend. Our first stop was four days in Toronto, and we absolutely fell in love. Day One The vast majority of the first…
