When I travel, I always love to look for food tours. Especially when I’m going to be in a place that I know has a unique food culture. I think one of the best way to get to know people is to get to know their food. So, of course, when I was planning a few days in Seville I knew I had to look for a tapas tour.  Tapas culture is alive and thriving in Andalucia but for a solo traveller, it can be a bit of a challenge. I wanted to try a larger variety of small bites but many of the tapas restaurants I found only offered larger plates meant to share. So I figured a tapas tour would be the be ..read more

Nobody likes dealing with lost luggage. Arriving at your destination, tired and cranky from hours spent in your cramped seat with recycled air, huddled with the masses at the baggage carousel just waiting for the sight of your suitcase.

The temperatures finally warm up and we all come out of hibernation. The streets are full of people, the w ..read more

They say there are no accidental tourists in Newfoundland. Just getting here in the first place can be a bit of a challenge. But it’s so worth it. Getting He ..read more

Costa Rica was my first destination as a solo female traveller and I couldn’t have chosen any better. With its mature tourism infrastructure, abundant nature, and being relatively easy to get to from Canada and the US it was the perfect vacation for a solo travel newbie.
