I am definitely an adventurer at heart! I've embraced Islamic culture and descended the pyramids in Egypt, soaked in the milky healing waters of Iceland's nature baths, got hooked on espresso while people watching in Paris, drank from giant beer steins after strolling the Christmas markets in Germany and took a breathtaking train journey through the highlands of Scotland to name a few highlights. My latest escapade this winter will be a sailing voyage in the Caribbean, from Antigua to Grenada, anchoring in St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines; a swimmer's paradise! As a traveller, I particularly enjoy slow travel and places where nature dominates and I love checking out local hotspots! I've yet to visit the East and I've got my eye on Bhutan, Thailand and Japan, as well as nearby Australia and New Zealand.
I'm actually a Guelph, ON native currently residing in Sherbrooke, QC where I've been studying psychology at Bishop's University. I'm now bilingual in French thanks to this francophone environment and have had amazing travel opportunities: from a séjour in the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, sipping hot spiced wine (Glüwein) at the Québec winter carnival, mountain biking in East Burke, Vermont, to strolling the charming neighbourhoods of Boston and Montréal. I'm fascinated with Buddhism as a philosophy of life, I like a good sense of humour, Wes Anderson films, cycling, reading, yoga, kickboxing and most of all, swimming. As a guest, I am considerate, respectful, mature, cleanly, and peaceful.
Here's a wise quote I try to live by: (author unknown)
"To crave what you don't have is to cast a shadow where there is none; to not enjoy what you have is to not appreciate the light."
