About Krista

Me and Steve the Camel, on lovely day in the Sahara Desert.

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, about once 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.

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.

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.” I’ve also written 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. And, somewhat rarely these days, I write other things in other places!

  1. I love that you’re planning ahead for travel. In 2013, I’m hoping for Bequia and planning for 2 weeks in Newfoundland in fall; in 2014, Big Bend National Park in Texas.

  2. Hi, Krista. I wanted to thank you for following my blog, although I’m a couple of months late! I was just in Cape Town for a few days a couple of weeks ago; it really is, as one of my friends said, “ridiculously beautiful.” I hope you enjoy South Africa and your future travels!

  3. Hey Krista! I really enjoy your blog and insights about travel… And because of that, I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Blogging Award! Please check out my nominations; I’d love to hear your responses to the 11 questions. Here’s the link: wp.me/p1l2vJ-an. Cheers, and happy travels! 🙂

  4. Hi Krista! I wanted to reach out to you to see if you’d be interested in giving me a short, email-based interview for http://www.HumaniTribe.com. HumaniTribe covers issues of social justice and self-improvement, and I’m interested to ask you some questions regarding the personal-growth nature of walking The Way. Is this something you’d be interested in talking to us about? If so, I’d be so thrilled! Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thanks!

  5. Hi Krista; hoping you can contact me – I teach a travel writing course at NSCC and would love to have you come in as a guest speaker –

  6. Hi! My dad (Doug Brown) is friends with your parents and they are visiting him right now. They told me about you, your travels and your site. You are who I want to be, without all the writing 🙂 I have only been on one trip to hike (4 day) to Machu Picchu but would like to travel more in the future as money and time permits. I look forward to reading everything here, following you and gaining inspiration and tips and advice.
