I fell in love with travelling at the age of 18 upon my first visit to Europe (to Italy). Since then, the more I travel, the more I suffer from wanderlust to visit new and old favourite places, meet new people, and experience new cultures.
In 2008, the desire to live abroad finally became a reality. I moved to the UK and finally made good use of my British passport, where I stayed for four years. The access that the UK provides for travel in terms of options and proximity was incredible and I tried to take full advantage of visiting new and distant places. This is really where my dreams of travelling took flight. Even more, it became a new home in the world and I feel lucky to be able to call two great cities in the world home. One of the best parts was getting to know the UK deeply, and forming long-lasting friendships with new friends and colleagues.
I'm based in Toronto, Canada after returning home from another two year stint in the UK. I am constantly dreaming of new trips and adventures. I love meeting new people during my travels that become new friends. I believe in getting experiences through travel instead of collecting things or ticking locations off a list. I believe there is no money ever wasted that is spent on travel. The personal growth and experience you gain when travelling is priceless. When I travel to new places, I feel as though I can breathe again and I see, hear, taste, touch and experience life in a refreshed way. What is it about being in a new place that makes you feel more adventurous with diplomatic immunity?
My hope through this blog is to share with you some of my favourite places and experiences relating to travel and lifestyle. I have a passion for sharing recommendations, itineraries and experiences in hopes that it will help you discover and enjoy new things! It is a visual and digital journal of my travels and experiences, current inspirations, and recommendations and stories from friends around the world as well as from me.

I have also had the chance to collaborate with terrific travel and lifestyle brands including the Fairmont, Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts, Kempinski Hotels, Selfridges, HSBC, Daniel Wellington, Kluse, and Small Luxury Hotels of the World, to name a few.
