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…

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…
