Horse play

I have spent much of my life around horses. If asked, I would say that a horse is my soul animal. They are so graceful, playful and soothing. Much of my childhood was spent riding, competing and taking care of our horses and I hope someday to own a bit of land and a couple of horses again.

While travelling through Europe I came across an amazing opportunity to work at a horse ranch/riding school. In exchange for a few hours a day I was given free room and board. Really spending 5 hours riding and playing with horses is hardly a job in my opinion, I was in heaven.

Carnival is a festival famous for the elaborate masks. First started in the year 1162, this festival attracts people from all over the world. I can't wait to go one day.

Have you ever been?

Penticton, British Columbia

Nestled in a valley surrounded by vineyards, mountains and lakes, sits the quaint town of Penticton. Jason and I decided to take a last minute trip here, escaping from the city and embracing the quiet this place had to offer. Penticton is about an eight hour drive from Calgary. Although its long, this trip leads you through the Rocky Mountains that are spectacular and offers endless opportunities to breath in the fresh mountain air and enjoy the views.

We explored the surrounding countryside, wandered through vineyards, drank coffee on the beach watching the sunset and made friends with ducks and other wildlife. As the week came to an end, neither one of us wanted to leave. Penticton will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

Wanderlust Wednesday - Trevi fountain

Trevi fountain, Rome

It is so hard to choose a favourite place from my time in Rome. One thing in particular that I really enjoyed was all the magic surrounding the Trevi fountain. There is an old saying that you can throw a penny in and make a wish, of course I did this and what did you know my wish came true.
