Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, my primary objectives are to see the world, eat as much of it as possible and share the best of what I find, a couple of times a week or so.
Mild-mannered Regular Jane by day, intrepid traveler when time and money permit, I love sharing the fun bits of my previous adventures and I’m always happy to talk about planning the next one. I don’t like travel bucket lists. Setting death as a deadline is … curious.
2014 travel: A big year! I went to New York in the spring, with a longer journey to Dublin, London and Reykjavik in the summer. In the fall, I went back to Spain to walk the Camino de Santiago from Leon. This year changed everything for me.
2015 travel and beyond: Ask me an easier question. I recently lost my job, so my travel plans have to take a temporary hiatus while I figure out what’s next. I’ve got the travel bug, and will continue to look at how to make it all work. The places I’m most excited about visit now are Haiti, returning to Iceland and Ireland, and making a longer return trip to South Africa. If I can combine this with my future employment, even better!

I write a lot. I’ve been working as a jane-of-all-trades analyst/researcher/project manager/everything else that, until now, has been unrelated to what I write, talk, or think about over here. For fun, I give my two cents over at Fashionable People, Questionable Things as their older, wiser, unpaid intern. A fan of eating everything in sight, I have also done some food writing for Taste of Nova Scotia.
I’ve decided it’s possible to be a full-time traveler, it’s just a matter of perspective. I spent summer 2012 pursuing “Operation Hometown Traveler” as a way to challenge myself to find the unique, beautiful, and interesting about my hometown of Halifax and home province of Nova Scotia. Just like I would when traveling “away.” In July 2012, I started writing occasional blogs for NovaScotia.com, the province’s travel and tourism promotion website, about the many exciting and amazing things to do in our province. Every tourism ambassador needs an official photo, right?
