Where in the world are we? – 50th postcard for Postcard Monday!

Happy New Year! Besides welcoming a new year, we have a bonus celebration today because this is the 50th postcard I’ve posted for Postcard Monday!

I returned from Iceland a couple of months ago and am looking forward to sharing more of my adventures there with you! In the meantime, here’s what Jenn, Eileen, Sangeeta, and Steph had to say. I had initially posted this on a page but it’s much easier to share with you as a blog post 🙂

Recently, I invited world travelers Jenn, Eileen, Sangeeta, and Steph to share their individual experiences traveling in Iceland. They all had different traveling styles – traveling with a young family, all girls trip, great Icelandic camping adventure; their one unifying factor – they are awesome people. They are also all respectful travelers who really know how to make the most of an overseas adventure. Continue reading

It’s no secret that Vancouverites love being outdoors and why wouldn’t they? It is literally at their doorstep. Everyone knows about Stanley Park but if you’re wanting to go on an easy hike away from the city without having to travel too far, then Pacific Spirit Regional Park is a good bet!

I had the pleasure of discovering Pacific Spirit Park myself this weekend and it was a welcome escape from the city. What a great place to discover things great and small at your own leisurely pace.
