Local Traveller? Travel Thursday

While it is incredibly exciting (and sometimes jealousy inducing) to follow along with travel bloggers who traverse the world and never seem to land back in the regular, “boring” lives that most of us live in, I’ve come to realise that a lot can be said for local travel and getting to know the place that you live in, and that people should be just as proud to proclaim that they are a local traveller as they are to being a globetrotter. This a celebration of the local traveller and why you should be proud to be one!

Seattle Public Library, Travel Thursday

The Seattle Public Library is a quite a dominating building, which is impressive given that it is surrounded by several skyscrapers. Although it is only 11 stories, compared to the seventy or more around it, it’s a very cool and modern building that is worth a visit if you are in Seattle! It’s free to enter, it’s close to the wharf and downtown shopping, and it’s accessible by public transportation. Time to head to the library!

Seattle Sneak Peak, Travel Thursday

I just got back from a short but wonderful trip to Seattle to see M! Great weather, delicious food, and more steps logged on my Fitbit than I’ve seen in a long time. I’m getting all of the posts ready and editing my pictures this weekend, but I wanted to share my favourite snapshots throughout the trip. Each of these stood out to me in one way or another, and have a small story behind them. In the next few weeks, I’ll share the full trip but I hope that you enjoy this sneak peak!

Airport Bingo

If you travel by air at all, you will have experienced the pure joy that is interacting with a billion different people in an entirely stressfree situation… Likely not. Instead, you’ve probably spent more time than you want to navigating through a maze of a building, with a population that is 98% grumpy, at a time of day that you most likely only spend in bed. Today’s post is a way to see the positive and fun in air travel, and will hopefully give you something to do in the case that your battery is dying- airport bingo!

Fairmont Banff Springs, Travel Monday

I know that my travel posts are typically on Thursdays, but I don’t want to “drag out” my Banff posts for a month or more to only post on Thursdays! So, here is a Travel Monday post that I hope you enjoy. While my Travel Thursday post was all about my afternoon tea experience at the Fairmont, I spent some time wandering about the hotel before and after. I decided to do a separate post to showcase the rest of the hotel and my time there, so I hope you enjoy!

Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Banff Springs, Travel Thursday

If you read my Banff To-Do List a couple weeks ago, you will know that taking afternoon tea at the Fairmont Banff Springs was at the top of my list! I’ve been waiting for this for weeks, and it was certainly worth the wait. If you ever happen to find yourself in Banff, you need to spend an hour or two enjoying some wonderful tea and delicious food. You will have some of the best views in the town, five star service, and a peaceful oasis away from the bustle of travel.

Snapshot Saturday, 6 May 2017

Today is our last day in Banff (we are leaving early tomorrow morning) but we are having such a wonderful trip. The weather is beautiful, the mountains are clear, and the dogs are happy! We couldn’t ask for anything more. There will certainly be more posts coming on our Banff trip so you can see everything, but for now, here is a small snippet: Continue reading

Banff To-Do List, Travel Thursday

At the beginning of May, I will be heading back to Banff with my dad and brother again- resident dog petter and walker, at your service! While I love just being there and relaxing in such a gorgeous setting, there are a few things that are on my to-do list for this trip. Most of what I plan to do is enjoy the fresh air, get ahead on the blog, and crack through my reading list but I’m going to share a few local to-dos that are at the top of my list!

Travel Thursday: Clothing to Pack

I won’t regale you with my travel horror stories but if I have learned nothing else during my travels, it’s that you have to be prepared. Today’s post will show you how to pack a minimal amount of clothing in your carry on and still survive for three to four days if your luggage doesn’t make it with you. Sure, in a dream world everything gets everywhere on time, but in case it doesn’t, this will help guarantee that your trip won’t be ruined (and your wallet won’t be emptied) because your clothing is stuck elsewhere!  Continue reading
