Probably not in the way you’re picturing “recovering”, haha. More so in that we spent an entire two days watching many of our favourite artists perform live. It was a mind-blowing weekend, to say the least. I still remember back in the Spring when Jess discovered the Squamish Valley Music Festival’s lineup. It read like a bucket list of performers we wanted to see. By … Continue reading Five Days After SVMF. We’re Still Recovering.
This was a first for us. We basically based our travel plans upon the lyrics of a traditional Newfie tune. Not sure what we’re talking about? Go Google the lyrics to “I’se Da B’ye” and then come on back. Or better still, ask a Newfoundlander to sing it for you. A couple weekends back, we set out with our super simple itinerary: Fogo, Twillingate, and … Continue reading Fogo, Twillingate, Moreton’s Harbour. All Around the Circle.
In the last four years, we’ve done a nice bit of travelling: Six weeks in NYC, 3 trips to Europe, five weeks in Australia/New Zealand, and a few visits to Canada’s West Coast. Every single time we go on a trip, we’ll tell our new friends that they “NEED to visit Newfoundland & Labrador”. And then they’ll ask us where the nicest places in the … Continue reading About Time we Became Tourists at Home
The best way to recap our time in the little town of Dingle is to tell you what and where we ate, haha. After the train and bus rides from Dublin to Dingle, we were hungry. There are no shortages of meal options around town, so we didn’t have to walk far until we spotted the menu at Harrington’s. Fish & Chips it was. You … Continue reading Warning: This Post Contains Excessive Amounts of Ice Cream
Why am I even writing this post instead of Jess? When it comes to the incredibly popular Game of Thrones series, I know nothing. Just like Jon Snow. (Okay, so I knew that line. And I’m halfway through the first book so I can tell you winter is definitely coming.) After three days in Dubrovnik, I know a little more. For example, nobody liked Joffrey … Continue reading Three Days at King’s Landing
Our three days in Dubrovnik deserve their own post, but so do our roomies for those three nights. Because we hit the roommate jackpot, haha. Typically, if we stay in a shared hostel room, we’ll choose the all-female dorms. This is especially true if the hostel has a name for being party central. Nothing at all against guys–we usually get along better with them anyways–but … Continue reading When You Hit the Roomie Jackpot.
Last night Jess actually said, “I hate travelling”. Keep in mind this is the same Jess that thinks it’s a bad year if she “only gets on two trips”. The bitterness probably had to do with the impending goodbyes. Let’s recap. Remember those two Australian brothers we met last May while waiting for a train to Cinque Terre? We saw one of them, Adam, when … Continue reading Eating Our Feelings in Barcelona.
Step 1: Don’t leave all your warm layers in your checked baggage. If you follow this step, you can stop reading this post right now. Step 2: Cover up all areas of exposed skin, such as ankles and wrists. This may require stretching sweater sleeves and pulling socks up to unfashionable heights. If you can also cover up your entire face, by all means go … Continue reading A Guide to Falling Asleep on a Cold Aircraft.
For reals, though, these dresses sum us up 100% when we’re travelling. (I’m still convinced the one I’m wearing is actually a shirt, but Jess informs me otherwise. Shortest dress I’ve ever worn, b’ys.) The dress Jess is wearing is plastered in an all-over ice cream print–probably equal to the number of ice cream cones she has actually eaten on our travels. I kid you … Continue reading Our Travels in Dress Form
After 46 hours of travel (28 of those hours spent in the air), we landed in St. John’s last night. This morning, it took me ten seconds to realize where I was. Another five seconds to figure out why I let myself sleep until noon. The backpack(s) have been unpacked and are taking a well-deserved break in my closet. My clothes are in the laundry … Continue reading Warning: The Travel Bug may have Side Effects.
