I know I’m super behind in updating this blog but I figured I’d post some travel highlights from the past year. I travelled to Europe and Asia, flew on some of my favourite airlines, and got in on some excellent mistake fares. Here’s hoping that 2016 is just as fun! […]

I’m always on the hunt for fun/interesting/useful/cute/tiny travel products. So I decided to write about some of the ones that I’ve bought recently. Because I’m lazy, I just looked at my Amazon history, which is why all of these are from Amazon. But they’re all things I bought with my […]
