I got my dream job in Toronto – and didn’t take it

Let’s face it – you need money to travel. I have a lot of tips and tricks on how to travel on a really small budget, but you will never get everything completely for free. Therefore, going on a Working Holiday Visa to Canada (or any other country) is the perfect opportunity to both explore…

We met Stanley at the Hockey Hall of Fame

Here it is – the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. The home to so many stars and role models, and to some people that we (Fredrik) don’t like at all but who’s made a great impact in the world of hockey. Do you remember that I told you it is quite important to me…

Toronto – the biggest town and the tallest skyscrapers

Hello Toronto! It feels good to be back in this vibrant city. Fredrik and I are staying in an airbnb for about a week. It’s situated just meters away from Kensington Market, but still on a quiet street. I guess Kensington Market is a tourist attraction, but a lot of locals go there as well.…

The best park in Montréal part II

A couple of days ago I told you about one of my favourite parks in Montréal. The other park that goes to the top of the list is the one on the hill Mont Royal. It also has a great view over the city, but from the opposite side compared to Jean-Drapeau. This one is…

The best park in Montréal part I

We’re back where we started, where I picked up Fredrik from the airport – in Montréal! This place means extra much to me, since this is where I started my first big trip two years ago. That’s the trip that changed my life and when I returned back home to Sweden three months later, I…

Hiking up the Mont-Tremblant

In the end, we decided to wait one more day to do the hike up the mountain. The weather forecast was unfortunately right. We had planned to go hiking yesterday, but since it was raining almost all day we ended up doing it today instead. No rain, but sadly no sun either. We actually thought…

Mont-Tremblant − expensive, touristy and beautiful

We have arrived in our new destination – the ski resort Mont-Tremblant! We were lucky enough to get a ride here from a guy working at the eco-lodge (thank you!) and we will be here for three nights. He warned us about it being a lot of tourists in Mont-Tremblant, but it seems like we…

Aventures Kiamika – an extraordinary stay

I wake up in our wooden cabin and walk out to the kitchen. I’m thinking about how incredibly lucky Fredrik and I are. When I look through the glass doors, I see trees in warm colours. Right behind them is the lake. It’s our last day here at Aventures Kiamika. We’ve been working as volunteers,…

Travelling with good company

Finally the day arrived. I went to Montréal to pick up Fredrik from the airport and suddenly I’m no longer a solo-traveller. I think I’ve actually been adapting to it better than I thought I would, because even if I’ve missed him a lot, I’ve really got used to travelling alone since that’s what I’ve…

The countdown and the plans

It’s a little bit cheesy, but yes – of course I’m counting down the days until my boyfriend Fredrik gets here! Which, by the way, is in less than 4 days. I’m volunteering at a place right now where I don’t really feel comfortable, which only makes me long for him to arrive even more.…
