What will happen today?

If there’s something I’ve learnt from my previous travels, and this month in Canada, it’s that you never know what will happen and where you’ll end up. As long as you’re open to see new places and to get to know new people, basically anything could happen. When I think of it, these last two…

I got one eye on the road and one on you

I have some great news! In less than three weeks, my costs will be a lot lower than today. I will no longer need to take selfies at all beautiful places I visit or hand my phone over to strangers. I won’t need to go back to my accommodation as soon as it gets dark…

I’m on top of the world

Or at least 421 meters above sea level, but it sure feels like I’m on top of the world. From the top of this mountain, you have a great view of Cape North – the place I’m staying in right now. I love hiking, especially up on mountains with breathtaking views like this one. There’s a…

Watch your step, darling

I’ve just left Bonavista, after two amazing weeks. I’m so happy I found this hidden pearl that I most likely never would have visited if I hadn’t found the volunteering position. Although I had a great time, it was time to move on. My plan was to visit Cape Breton in Nova Scotia, and now…

The world is so big but yet so small

At St. John’s two weeks ago, I stood in the queue to immigration with another girl. She was also going to stay in Canada on a working holiday visa. We didn’t really talk, I guess we both were a bit nervous. Later on when I was leaving the airport, I saw her again. We smiled…

My new home – Bonavista

I’ve found a place to call “home” for the two upcoming weeks! It’s a small town called Bonavista, which means “Happy sight”. It’s approximately three – four hours from St. John’s. It only has 3500 inhabitants and is very different from what I’m used to, especially when you compare it to a big city like…

Canada is not as good as I remember – it’s better

I visited Canada two years ago and remember it as a beautiful place with friendly people. But I didn’t know it’s this beautiful and has this friendly people! I barely know where to start. I’m in St. John’s, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador. It feels rather small but it has about 110 000 inhabitants.…

How I got a free trip to Dublin

Free isn’t bad at all – especially when you’re a backpacker and every dollar counts! When I see something for free I usually go with it. It could be anything between a free tour to a free meal at a hostel. This time though, it was more like a free trip – to Dublin! So…

Bye Stockholm, we were never friends anyway

The sweet beginning My first blog post. I’ve been thinking about what to write for a while, it’s rather special after all. The first post. Perhaps I should write a fancy presentation and give you several reasons to follow me. Perhaps I should promise you reviews from famous tourist attractions and comfortable hotels. But I…
