I became an au pair (essentially a live-in nanny) for a year in the Netherlands when I was 18 and it definitely gave me a serious case of wanderlust. I was living in Europe, a mere bike ride away from Amsterdam, and I was completely independent. It sounds great, but it can be hard work as well (after all, it’s still a job). Interested in the world of au pairing but don’t know if it’s right for you? I’ve got some tips and advice for you.

Travellers: Julia, Laura, and Sydney are all friends from high school that have been travelling off and on for the past couple of years. Between the three of them they’ve been to Europe, Asia, Africa, and throughout North America both alone and with others. They all have unique experiences on what it’s like to be a woman travelling in a foreign country and agreed to share their thoughts on safety, planning, making friends on the road, and yes, even selfies.
Next week I’ll be travelling to Wayhome, Ontario’s newest large-scale music festival! It’s actually sort of hard to consider it travel per say, as it’s located in Oro-Medonte which is only an hour and a half drive from Toronto, but I like to think of it as a fun weekend getaway. With all of my friends. Plus some cool music. And some real boozy camping. This is my list of must-haves for camping at music festivals. A few things might sound pretty obvious, but sometimes we all need a little reminder.
