So while I was sitting in that little Florence cafe yesterday morning starting to feel like a comfortable and journey-ed backpacker, writing my last blog post and drinking my cappuccino, my knapsack which I had stashed under my chair/beside my foot was stolen. Some sneaky pick pocket (or pick bag?) somehow managed to grab my…… Continue reading The Last 30 Hours – Day 30
Almost one month since we left Toronto…. And while it feels like it was only yesterday I also feel like I have seen, accomplished, and grown so much. Rome was almost a blur, spending only one day there. For us Rome was more of a stepping stone to get to Florence. We walked around all…… Continue reading Rome & Florence (Firenze) – Day 29
Rhodes has definitely been one of my favorite islands thus far. Each of the islands that we have been to have been just really cool and while all very ‘Greek’ they are all a little different. Rhodes is much more spread out but reminded me a bit of Canada… Lots more greenery, coniferous trees, and…… Continue reading Rhodes to Rome – Day 24
It is our second day in Rhodes and this island has not disappointed! We got off the ferry yesterday morning feeling slightly rested as our beds for the night consisted of unrolled sleeping bags on chairs pushed together. Our ferry from Santorini left at 1am and arrived in Rhodes at 9am. As per usual we…… Continue reading Rhodes – Day 20
For about the last 5 or 6 years whenever anyone has asked me if I could go anywhere in the world right at that moment where would I go, my answer has always been Santorini Greece with no hesitation. My dad has talked about Santorini honestly for as long as I can remember as his…… Continue reading The Mother of the Greek Islands, Santorini – Day 17

We are leaving for Santorini tomorrow afternoon and planning on meeting back up with our friend Emily for 2 more nights before she heads off to Scotland! We will be there until the night of the 18th. We got to Paros on Day 9 and it’s…… Continue reading Paros – Day 12
We are now on day 8 of the trip and day 4 here in Naxos. Today I realized something I probably already knew but never reached my total awareness… While I have always been an extrovert – meaning I get my energy from being around other people, I am also a very antsy person. When…… Continue reading Introvert versus Extrovert – Day 8
Hello Readers, We are half way done our third day in Naxos – where does the time go? After our arrival from the ferry Rachel and I found ourselves a nice old Greek man to give us a cute little room about a 3 minute walk from town and about 300 meters from Emily’s hotel!! We…… Continue reading Naxos – Day 7
I am writing this on the ferry ride from Mykonos to Naxos. I am so sad to be leaving – our time in Mykonos has been so lovely. I have been so tired at the end of every day that I have not had the energy to post anything throughout our stay so here is…… Continue reading Mykonos to Naxos: Island hopping is fun!
Spoiler: this is a bit of a personal post! I can’t believe we leave in a week. While I am so incredibly excited to be taking off and seeing the world I am also very very nervous. In the grand scheme of things 7 months isn’t that long at all. But for someone who has…… Continue reading 7 More Sleeps!
