Where I've Been


Favourite Holidays


South America

I was lucky enough to spend 4 months travelling independently in South America.  One of the most amazing places I have ever been to – Sights, sounds and lots of culture!  Highlights – Argentina, Galapagos Islands, Patagonia and the Carnival in Rio – WOW!


A new found favourite of mine after visiting last year.  I am a big fan of Italy and have visited numerous time but Sicily was pretty special.  Lots of amazing culinary experiences and the friendliest people.  If you need any advice and recommendations on how to do Italy properly please come and see me


Literally one of the coolest places in the world I have been to – Check out the Blue Lagoon!


Experienced 8 weeks driving across from Toronto to Vancouver – Camping for the most part till I came across a couple of bears checking out my tent!
