Travelling Clears Your Habit Slate

Posted by in Travel

I like travelling because it gives you a clean slate to work with. You are in a different place, sleeping in a different bed, eating different food, seeing different things and people. So much of your habits relies on your routine. You are in the same place so you do the same things. Think about what you eat and do at home. Or at work. So much of that goes out the window when you’re in a totally different place. Think about when you go on vacation and how much…read more

Where Are You Travelling Next?

Posted by in Personal Development, Travel

After finding Chris Guillebeau a few years by a random link talking about how he was travelling the world and visiting every country before he was 35, I’ve seen him do some incredible things. The latest of which pretty much blew my mind. The World Domination Summit went far above my expectations for the non-conforming conference and it was the first time they put it together! Everything went smoothly and every time I turned around I met another like-minded person that had big, awesome ideas. It’s no surprise that his…read more

Thoughts on France

Posted by in Travel

I’ve been back from France for a week now. I can’t believe we’ve been home for a week already but it’s been that long. Looking back on our time there it seems so long ago already. As always, I miss the feel of travelling, not working, being in a new place, exploring every nook and cranny to see what surprises await. France was no different. We only spent time in Paris and Marseille and I know we missed out a lot of the French countryside, mountains and other places but…read more

A Big Pile of Bones Under Paris

Posted by in Travel

When we started putting together the list of things we wanted to do in Paris, visiting the catacombs was high on the list. I really had no idea what to expect before starting a bit of research on the big pile of bones that lies beneath Paris. Going to see a pile of bones is cool but it’s even more interesting when you consider some of the history. By the 17th century, Paris was having some big issues with where to put it’s dead bodies. Cemeteries around churches were getting…read more

Wine and Cheese in Paris

Posted by in Travel

My girlfriend and I have just finished off a week in Paris. We’ve current basking in the sun in Marseille and will be spending another 2 days in Paris before heading home at the end of this week. It’s always sad to think about the end of the trip and heading home but it wouldn’t be so incredible if we were here all the time. We flew into Charles de Gaulle 1 week ago and it’s flown by. I wasn’t sure how easy the train system here was going to…read more

Vive La France!

Posted by in Travel

Ever since I got home from Australia and New Zealand in 2009, I was itching to travel again. I had only just got a taste of travelling and wanted to experience something farther away from the Canadian culture I see every day. I’ve had my eyes on Thailand and Chile for some time now. It seems like half the location independent lifestyle designers are currently in Thailand and it would be a blast to cruise through and see what that crew is up to. And I’ve heard nothing but good…read more

You Won’t Even Have to Move, Ever

Posted by in Travel

Ever wonder about all the things you can do from that chair you’re sitting in right now? Years ago, all that we could do in a chair was eat, sleep and read. You could sometimes talk to people if they were around. Or yourself if you really wanted to. That was about it. Now the power you have from your chair is incredible. Right now, I’m watching a ski film I got online. I didn’t have to go to the store to buy it, or to the rental store to…read more

4 months in Australia and New Zealand; A Year Later

Posted by in Travel

I realized today that I never did a roundup post of all the posts while I was away in Australia and New Zealand last year. Looking back I wrote way more than I thought. Having nothing else to do in the hostels during the evenings gave me some  good time to write. I wish I had kept up that momentum when I got home. Having to hunt for a job to pay off the trip put a bit of a dent in the free time I had. So here’s the…read more
