2013 was the year of adventure. Between dropping my plans to move to Edmonton, spontaneously taking off for Europe, moving to Calgary, starting a new job in a new industry and moving in with Le Monsieur, the year was insane and full of crazy.
2014 was better — except for the moving across the world thing. […]
I’m back in Canada! Thank God. Not only am I happy to have space to move and clear, blue skies and delicious food but I’m excited that I can cook at home ($$), not get ripped-off ($$) and not get aggravated with exchange rates anymore.
My workplace was absolutely insane in April (and May!) and so […]

Oh my God.
Now, before anyone jumps in with “It’s a low-cost airline!” I know. I’ve flown with low-cost carriers before and was expecting the whole […]
I’m going to preface this post by saying that Hiroshima and Kyoto were giant let-downs after Tokyo and that I took maybe 5 pictures in all. I didn’t dislike the cities or anything… they were just “meh”.
