    5 Tips for Travelling as a Couple

    Similar to travelling with friends, there are key things to keep in mind when travelling with your partner. Here are some tips for travelling as a couple. Before I met the Brit, I had become accustomed to travelling mostly solo. But it’s way more enjoyable to travel with someone, so you can share those special moments. One of my favourite things about our relationship is that we travel well together, and we have many of those special moments — very grateful! Although we’ve been together for over three years, our trip to England for Christmas was the first time we had been on a plane trip together. Prior to this,…

    23.5 Things I Love About Living in Victoria

    After almost seven months in Victoria, the Brit and I have quickly adjusted to ‘Island life’. Our scenic new town has a much slower pace and it has been a welcome change. Like any new place, there’s been some quirks to get used to; namely, no rapid transit or tap cards (which I knew I’d miss), and NO IKEA (we struggled with this one #firstworldproblem). But we love it and our cozy city life. Numbered, but in no particular order, here’s what we’re enjoying about Victoria so far:   1. Sunny days According to worldatlas.com, Victoria is one of the sunniest cities in Canada. I’d never thought about it before, but…

    10 Travel Stretches to Keep Your Body Happy

    Travel can be hard on the body. Here are ten travel yoga stretches to help you feel happy and well while on the go. (Psst! These are also great stretches for people who work at a desk all day.) Travel can be hard on the body. You know what I mean. Stiff neck from falling sleeping with your head at a weird angle (even with a neck pillow!) Sore back and shoulders from sitting in the awkward seats. Tight legs and hips from sitting too long. Hands and feet feeling heavy. The ironic thing is that you can feel much of the same after playing tourist and being on your…

    A Fun Day of Dates in Brighton

    Looking for date ideas while visiting Brighton for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or just for date night in general? I’ve got your back. VisitBrighton sent the Brit and I on a day of fun date ideas for travlling couples. There’s so much to do in this romantic seaside town! The Brit and I love to explore and it was a thrill to explore the city of Brighton with him back in December. My love grew up nearby but had never really gotten to know the town. And I had never been. So VisitBrighton kindly sent us on a day of dates where I took over their Instagram account to share Brighton…

    Coastal BC Craft Breweries Worth the Extra Road Trip Mile

    Continuing with our #friendsinbeerplaces road trip along the Coastal Ale Trail… When I travel,  I’m all about convenience, efficiency, and quality. No set order. All three things come in handy when exploring, but sometimes you need to go the extra mile (or ferry) in order to find quality. The road less travelled, if you will. And that is why the Brit and I are big fans of Love Shack Libations and Townsite Brewing – they are craft breweries that go the extra mile for their customers, which makes going off the beaten path completely worth it.
