24 Hours in Copenhagen

After discovering my favorite Scandinavian capital of Stockholm, I moved on to Copenhagen, Denmark. I had heard about the strong bike culture in Copenhagen and was excited to rent a bike and explore the city. Similar to the other cities, I spent a little more than 24 hours in Copenhagen, but the majority of my sightseeing...

24 Hours in Stockholm

After visiting Helsinki, I was off to Stockholm, a city I was very excited to explore. I am a big fan of Swedish design and Swedish musicians, including Peter Bjorn & John, First Aid Kit, Icona Pop, Robyn, and Tove Lo, and I really hoped to be as big a fan of the city as I was...

24 Hours in Helsinki

In November 2015, I embarked on a one week journey through Scandinavia, an area of Europe I had been wanting to see for years. My first stop was Helsinki, the capital city of Finalnd. Helsinki sits on a peninsula in the southern part of Finland on the shore of the Gulf of Finland. Helsinki was established in...

Suomenlinna: A World Heritage Site

On an island off Helsinki sits Suomenlinna, a sea fortress and UNESCO World Heritage site. Suomenlinna was built during the Swedish era (1748-1808) as a base for the Archipelago Fleet, or the “fleet of the army.” The archipelago fleet was a branch of the Swedish armed forces created to protect the Swedish coasts during several wars,...
Hostel Review: City Backpackers Hostel Stockholm

Hostel Review: City Backpackers Hostel Stockholm

At the recommendation of a friend, I stayed at the City Backpackers Hostel Stockholm in November 2015 for two nights while traveling solo through Scandinavia. As an avid hostel stayer with both positive and negative experiences, I would highly recommend City Backpackers Hostel Stockholm to anyone traveling to Stockholm, but especially for solo travelers, as it...

A Weekend Getaway to Iceland

Last Thanksgiving (end of November for Americans), my family and I took a trip to Iceland for the long weekend/holiday. Like most of my trips, this one was short because my job doesn’t allow me to take much time off. We arrived in Iceland early Thursday morning after a short 5 hour flight from Toronto,...

Our Favorite Fun Activities Around Niagara Falls

I remember going to Niagara Falls as a child and having no interest in it after my first visit, which included the “opportunity” to ride the Maid of the Mist, which left me cold, wet, and utterly miserable. Now that my parents have lived in Toronto for 6-7 years and I’ve been to Niagara Falls at least...

24 Hours In Vienna

After my first stop in Budapest, the second stop on my five-countries-in-five-days trip was Vienna, Austria. Upon arriving in the Wien Haubtbahnhof, I was excited to once again hear German spoken around me and to see signs advertising dishes with things such as sauerkraut and schnitzel. I arrived in Vienna just before noontime and immediately...

24 Hours in Berlin

It may come as a surprised to you – and it certainly comes as a surprise to me – that Berlin, a city I have visited twice for 24 hours or less each time, is one of my favorite cities in the world. No other city has the same juxtaposition of rich history and rich...

Surviving Marrakesh

The following is a guest post by Kathy James of Walkabout Wanderer. I have been to Morocco three times over the past 18 months, so it is pretty clear that I love Morocco. Coming from the UK, I can arrive in Africa, submersed in a completely different culture, in only four hours. However, my love for Morocco stems from more...
