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.…

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…
