Europe's Capital and Old, New Friends

BELGIUM | Tue, 9 Aug 2016 | By bcpckngbrtns | Views [240]

Our start in Belgium is an early one, 3am to be exact. Flight left at 6:50am so anyone who has flown knows just how early you have to be there before you can actually leave... Too early in my opinion! So of course I slept the entire way and we landed ... Read more >

The Land of the Scots

UNITED KINGDOM | Wed, 3 Aug 2016 | By bcpckngbrtns | Views [251]

In the beginning

CANADA | Sun, 17 Jul 2016 | By bcpckngbrtns | Views [372]

To start my travel blog I thought my first post should come from home. I live in St. Catharines Ontario Canada. For those who are born and raised here I think we all tend to take for granted just how great this place is. Myself being at the top of that ... Read more >

Istanbul

TURKEY | Mon, 2 Sep 2013 | By joannawong | Views [400]

I left Istanbul upset and in a rush much to my dismay. I was tired of the hostel and party (!) lifestyle and just wanted to be in the comfort of my home and I longed to be with the people I love. All this on my last day at my last stop of my solo ... Read more >

So it's happening and I'm leaving - WAAAAH! :( But it's been a fabulous run for me in the UK and I enjoyed so much of it. The scenery, the friends, the weather (!), the shopping, the cities/towns/villages, EVERYTHING! Strangely though, I never got ... Read more >

Leaving Soon :(

UNITED KINGDOM | Tue, 27 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [270]

Leaving is always difficult. Leaving the UK has always just been a tad worse than just difficult. It's my last day here and I think I've woken quite early compared to the last few days. Looking outside the window, I look onto a lush garden and sheep ... Read more >

Issues, Issues and More Issues

UNITED KINGDOM | Fri, 23 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [339]

Considering I did an excellent job with catching trains in Europe, I'm having an awful time with the transport in the UK. It's not that it's substandard and terrible here - it's just that I seem to have a running streak of issues. First, there was ... Read more >

Live in Liverpool

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 22 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [397]

What I like most about being in Liverpool is the music. Yes, the greatest band ever, the Beatles, was born here and I'm here on a pilgrimage. Even though they've disbanded and half of them are no longer, their legacy lives on strong in this vibrant ... Read more >

I Love Travelling!

UNITED KINGDOM | Sun, 18 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [371]

What an unbelievable day!  When the alarm rang at 7am, I briefly woke up but drifted back to sleep. I had the strangest dream in this half hour daze where I dreamed I just got back to work and everyone was asking me questions about my year ... Read more >

Skye

UNITED KINGDOM | Sat, 17 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [301]

I feel like I'm leaving Skye with a mixed bag of feelings. While I'm happy I made it out here and love the beauty of the isle, I feel slightly disappointed because I don't think I've done it justice with my visit.   Skye was one of the places ... Read more >

Highland Times

UNITED KINGDOM | Thu, 15 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [257]

The Scottish Highlands are really something. I traversed this amazing scenery this time by train. Unfortunately, even with a nearly solid nine hours sleep the night before, I found myself nodding off a lot, probably missing out on a lot of the scenic ... Read more >

Back in London

UNITED KINGDOM | Sat, 10 Aug 2013 | By joannawong | Views [309]

There's something about London that always catches me. Even with three hours sleep, I had enough energy to reminisce and the joy and wonder I felt walking through London as an eleven year-old visiting for the first time.

Life's simple pleasures are really the most fulfilling.   It rained today. I stayed up too late last night. Maybe I drank too much too. But it was all in the name of fun and more importantly, it was time well spent with good friends I don't ... Read more >

Dresden

GERMANY | Wed, 31 Jul 2013 | By joannawong | Views [463]

Visiting Dresden was a sombre experience, knowing that it was the most heavily-bombed city in WWII. It is such a stark contrast to Prague, which never took a blow from the war physically and was so well-preserved. Walking from the train station ... Read more >
