Nova Scotia Jeep Club crawling over rocks

2006 was the last time Dad and I got out on the trails with the boys of the Nova Scotia Jeep Club… That’s seven years ago now! Since we arrived back in Nova Scotia, I've been spending my time catching up with family and friends I haven't seen in YEARS, which has been simply lovely. [...]

change is the only constant

Some things change consistently and are expected; the sun rises in the morning, and sets in the evening, the seasons change steadily, and I put on fresh new undies daily. We also know change can occur more sporadically, too. It can pop up, unannounced, uninvited and just like that you've just got to deal with [...]

This week's photo comes from Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia. A friend from university came to visit me at Thanksgiving in 2008, and upon picking him up from the airport, iconic Peggy's Cove was our first stop.

My parents have lived there for the past 7 years, and I joined them for 4 month before New [...]


We're hitting the road, for a massive roadtrip! I am so excited for my upcoming travel plans this spring, and they are not too far off now! I’ve just begun the final term of the school year, after a lovely and much needed 2 week break. I came back from Thailand and literally hit the [...]

Forest Hill, Kentville, Nova Scotia They say parents give children two gifts- roots and wings. I'm truly blessed to have been given both of these. My wings have taken me to New Zealand and abroad to explore the world on my own; but my roots will always been Nova Scotia. Even though my family doesn't [...]

I wasn't actually nominated for Hostelbooker’s 7 Super Shots  but I read and loved RTW Backpackers inspiration and they nominated anyone... So I took that opportunity to find some of my favourite photos. Boy it was hard to choose! I also learned I ought to better organise my hard drive of photos one day soon. [...]
