Athens, Greece

I had a great time while staying in Athens. As soon as I checked into my hostel I met some fellow Canadians that were also bunking in my room. All of us had been travelling alone so we decided to explore Athens together and see what the night life was like.

The day we decided to tour the Acropolis it was a historic holiday of some kind so our entry was completely free. That was pretty awesome. Unfortunately most of the Acropolis was surrounded in scaffolding and undergoing renovations, which made it difficult to get a decent picture.
At night though it looked beautiful.

Athens has plenty of history and architecture to keep you busy for days. The area surrounding the Acropolis is gorgeous and filled with fantastic restaurants and cafes. I couldn't get enough of the vendors selling fresh coconut water and roasted chestnuts.

Venice, Italy

While I was travelling around Italy, my younger sister came to join me on my adventure. It was great to see her, by then I had been away from home for about ten months. True to her nature she had the entire month of her stay planned out so I decided to go along for the ride, enjoying the fact that I didn't have to make any decisions.

Venice is a very magical city. The first day we tried to navigate around with a map, having little success this way we decided just to wander around and see where we ended up. I found some amazing artwork and jewelry. My favourite part about venice was all the mask shops. I would have loved to buy a couple if my budget had allowed it.

We spent about five days in Venice. Enjoying chocolate crepes and lattes. We took in a play about the history of carnival and took the water taxies to explore the surrounding islands. It was sad to see many of the buildings under water, there is so much beauty in this city.

Travel outfit

When I travel all I care about is being comfortable, especially if the flight is going to last more then 2 hours. At the same time I want to look some what presentable and stylish stepping off the plane at our destination. I am so envious of those women who look incredible even after a 24 hour trip, I am not one of those women.

I wore overalls all the time when I was younger, so I love that they are back in style. They are the perfect thing to wear for a trip. What is your go to travel outfit?
