Well, Halloween is upon us once again! As I was growing up, October 31st was one of my favourite a days of the year. You got to pick a costume, dress up, wear it to school, then parade around town collecting as much candy as possible. I would go as far as devising…Details
On the second day of my New Hampshire Road Trip, I had the pleasure of visiting the Valley Snow Dogz. Located in Waterville Valley, these pups will take you on a winter adventure with their wonderful owner Lidia! In the fall when there is no snow, they can also take you on an ATV tour!…Details
Having had such a stellar stay at Chillax Hostels in Moscow, my standards were set pretty high as I arrived at my hostel in St. Petersburg. My new home for the next week would be Red House Hostel. My three travel pals and I came in by overnight train and with a quick…Details
Allow me to show you one of the biggest Avocados I have ever seen and a fruit that looks like alien brains on the inside.
During my visit to New Hampshire, USA, I knew I had to see The Mount Washington Cog Railway. Although it wasn’t set to open for the season until the week after I was there, I still got a behind the scenes look at how the Cog works and filmed my experience to share with you…Details
Earlier this year, you may recall I took off on a four day road trip with my Mom to the beautiful state of New Hampshire, USA. (Check out the announcement video here) We had an absolute blast, but before I could share our adventures with you, my photos and videos went M.I.A. Insert sad…Details
Relaxing in Huacachina powered me up with the energy to continue on to my next stop: Lima, Peru. Arriving in the capital of the country, I quickly met up with my friends Alejandro and Heather. A native of Lima, Alejandro showed me the ins and outs of the city and made sure I had the…Details
Our ‘night on the town’ in Moscow knocked me out. Getting home from the club at 7am, paired with 14 time zones worth of jet lag makes for one VERY tired Brock. As a result, my second day in Russia’s capital was spent in a deep, deep sleep. Once I was rested up…Details
During my visit to Lima, Peru I had the chance to try some Peruvian specialities.
My friend’s Alejandro & Heather took me out for an interesting meal to try cow’s heart and stomach.
Though I can’t say they were my favourite foods in Peru, certainly give them a try when you are visiting the country!
I landed in Moscow, Russia at 7am on a Saturday morning. It took 3 days, 3 planes and 14 time zones but I had finally made it! My new Russian friend Igor helped me make my way into the city where I was greeted by Darren and his very own Russian friend Evgeniy.…Details
Back home in Canada it is Thanksgiving weekend. Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and so on. Mmmm. This year I am on the other side of the world and unable to celebrate back in my native land. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t be thankful. Aside from the lack of pumpkin pie here in Macedonia, it’s…Details
Taking a break while you travel is something I’ve advocated for a few times on this blog – especially when you are travelling long term as I do. After my incredibly amazing visit to Machu Picchu just outside of Cuzco, Peru, I made my way to the sand dune paradise that is Huacachina. The Hua…Details
There are a few things I was warned about when I started planning my trip to Russia. One was that accommodation in Moscow is EXPENSIVE! – a word that a budget backpacker does everything to avoid. I had these fears of ending up in some super dodgy shoebox that cost me an arm and a leg. However,…Details
When I set out on my around the world adventure, one thing I knew I wanted to do from the get go was visit Machu Picchu. Although I didn’t know to much about it, I was aware that it was one of the most spectacular places on Earth full of mystery and awe. I’d also…Details
