Hyphen to the Motherland - Part I

The first leg of this trip is done! I've been traveling around Britain with my mum for the past 2 weeks and I even managed to squeeze in a weekend in Antwerp! Tomorrow we are off to India and I can hardly wait. Travel jitters galore; ready for a long journey to Kochi where we will be visiting the south west of India for the next 3 weeks.

Here is a look at the first part of this trip.

Getting Away

Sorry I've been away again, with more excuses this time. But at least I have something to show for it! A friend studying abroad suggested we meet in Barcelona, so I booked a flight and made the best of my time in Europe. Getting there was a bit crazy, and after 2 days of traveling, all I wanted was to be horizontal. So 7 nights in Barcelona, 2 in London visiting some friends and one night in Paris trying to recover (however that night was probably the craziest, for not so fun reasons...) and I had a wonderful time. Too bad I've been so sick this week to properly reminisce. Well, I finally went through my pictures, so here is a small collection of them. Enjoy. 


Maybe I'll go to Amsterdam, or maybe I'll go to Rome

Falling asleep on the train to Cinque Terre, accompanied by Joni Mitchell was one of the best sleeps I had on my trip. You would think that having to keep an eye on my backpack and trying to get comfortable while my neighbour squishes me to the window would keep me from dozing off, but it seems I was more tired than I thought. Bunk beds and trains started to feel more pleasant as the time went by, and the only complaint I had about sleeping on the train was missing the views! You can see the rest of my travel shots on my website. Enjoy!     

The Constant Traveller

I recently returned from a backpacking trip around Europe. Five weeks to see as much as possible. Staying in hostels, sleeping in trains, carrying all your belongings on your back; so many experiences to make you grow. But I also decided to make this a solo trip, and that was probably the best experience of all. Having no one to care for you makes you really focus on yourself. Pushing your own limits is harder to do when there is no one there to give you a push. Not only did this trip help me discover my strengths, it also piqued my curiosity to constantly search for new sights. Once I returned to Montreal, that feeling continued to resonate through me, so I went in search of new sights within a city I'd been living in for 3 years now. You can see shots from my venture around the city, as well as from my trip around Europe on my website!
