Looking back, it’s impossible for me to pinpoint when my love of New Orleans first blossomed, or what exactly drew me to it. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by the cultural, architectural, and musical aspects of the Crescent City. I just felt I had to experience that city for my 30th birthday, and luckily, my travel partner in crime, Brit, was more than game to go, too. Brit’s request was adding in a side trip to NASA, one my space-loving self was only too eager to add to the list.
Here’s a quick sneak peek of what we got up to on our trip!

Ha, what a joke to post a 2019 travel plan post in 2021, but alas, when mental health strikes you down, sometimes that’s the way it works. I decided to still post this, as I wanted to look back later on and recall what I had hoped to accomplish vs what actually happened. After all, I didn’t do one for 2018, and I sort of regret that. Without further ado, here is my part-lookback slight revisionist plan for 2019!

2018 was more or less a static year in my life. Highs included a Toronto weekend trip for my best friend Brit’s birthday (see posts here and here). There weren’t too many lows, however the job I moved to the Toronto area for fell through pretty quickly. I realized quite early on that I wasn’t the right fit for the job, and neither was the job the right fit for me. Still, that took me on a new path to Kitchener, ON, where I made new friends and found my way back to myself little by little.
Looking back on my adventures, I’ve selected my ten favourite pictures I took in 2018. The pictures are in chronological order!

2017 brought about a few massive changes, including a few emotional turning points in my life. Highs included my dad’s surgery yielding the best result possible, an amazing girls’ trip around Eastern Canada with Brit, and finding myself getting to spend more time with family. Lows included saying a heartbreaking farewell to our family dog, a truly beautiful spirit whose loss was devastating, and the self-realization that I was letting my happiness in life fade. Smack dab in the middle, complete with highs and lows – moving.

Five years ago, I took a somewhat risky chance in life – without having any sort of job lined up, I moved to a city I’d never even visited. That risk paid off tenfold as I fell head over heels in love with Ottawa and the life I built there.
