My name is Melina and I'm from Toronto, Canada.
I love to travel, and in another life I would be a travel photographer or documentary film maker. Fun fact about me: I went to school for film, but I am now working in software (which is also pretty awesome).
I love nature, and so all of my favourite traveling memories involve the natural beauty of the location I visit. So far my favourite traveling activities have been riding a Sno-coach to the top of a glacier in the Rocky Mountains, white water rafting in Honduras, snorkeling in Greece, seeing the giant Redwood forest in California, and taking the TGV through southern France.
Canadians are rumored to be very polite and friendly, and I think this is true... My boyfriend and travelling partner Andrew and I are considerate guests, and when it comes to accommodations we're generally easy to please.
We think that a great way to explore a city is to spend a lot of time walking, so we like to pick destinations where we'll be within walking distance of interesting things. The first places I like to visit when travelling are the local supermarket, nearby parks, and any spot with agood view of the city (a cliff, a tower, a parking garage or a tree!).
My only complaint about traveling is that sometimes I don't know whether to keep taking pictures, or to stop and enjoy the world around me :)
