Visiting the Arenal volcano and walking through the Rainforest was such a trip. Seeing a volcano up close has been on my bucket list for a long time. I always thought my first experience would be in Hawaii but turns out that Costa Rica has over 110 volcanoes so it’s a pretty good place to […]

Day 3 in Costa Rica was spent exploring Tamarindo, a cute surf town about one and a half hour away from our home base in Coco Beach. We had seen some nice homes located in Tamarindo on Air bnb so we considered this day trip as location scouting for our next visit to Costa Rica. […]

Barcelona Day 3: stunning Sitges

You can tell by looking at the clouds in this first photo that it was a very moody day when we visited Sitges. Mother Nature was kind enough to hold off the rain until we headed back to the train station so we actually didn’t mind the dramatic skies. It created a certain mysterious atmosphere. […]

Hergiswil Switzerland: home is where the heart is

Hergiswil Switzerland, hergiswil, switzerland, swiss, travel, europe

I just got back from spending three amazing weeks in Hergiswil Switzerland. Why Hergiswil? Because that is where my boyfriend is now located. I wanted to see if this urban girl could see herself living in a town of 6000 people and just 14.2 km2. Just as a point of comparison, Montreal hosts over 1.8 […]

Je dois tout d’abord vous dire à quel point ma visite à Lausanne a été mémorable et ce, pour plusieurs raisons, mais la plus importante est que j’y ai rencontré une fille ultra sympatique qui vient du Québec nommée Julie-Catherine. Tout comme moi, Julie est blogueuse, passionnée du mieux-être et a quitté le Québec pour […]
