Whistler, Canada

This one is for the skiing lovers out there like me!

I just had one of the shittiest winters ever and did not get to ski, not even once. My skis stayed locked in the garage for an entire Canadian winter. If that’s not sad, I don’t know what is. Apparently, now we don’t have snow, we’re just all turning into icicles. Wonderful, peachy. It’s not like I don’t have somethings I want to do. Like ski.

Solution? I’ll pack my bags and go ski at the wonderful mountain over in British Columbia called Whistler.

Check it out:

The Whistler resort area, north of Vancouver in British Columbia, exists because of skiing. With more than 8,000 acres over 2 mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, it’s the largest skiable area in North America. That distinction – and its roughly 12m of yearly snowfall – helped it earn co-hosting duties at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Its hub is a compact, chalet-style pedestrian village.

Trip South – Cuba

14129434628778

Quick talk about a vacation I’ll be taking next year. On my way to Cuba!

Now this isn’t my first time. I was able to experience it when I was about 6 years old and thanks to that age period, I only remember bits and pieces of my time there. Those few memories though? Amazing! Except for swimming with dolphins. I kinda sorta got knocked off the platform by one of them and got very upset due to lack of trust in my life jacket. Not my fault, they were still cute Continue reading “Trip South – Cuba”

Tokyo, Japan

This dream first began with my coming into the anime world and transition into a major Otaku. Anime is one of the best things that ever happened to me and eventually led to my interest in Japan itself. Let’s face it, Tokyo is an insane place and this is my perfect opportunity to know more about it. Selfish, I know.

Capital of Japan
Tokyo, Japan’s bustling capital, mixes the ultramodern and the traditional, from neon-lit skyscrapers and anime shops to cherry trees and temples. The opulent Meiji Shinto Shrine is known for its towering gate and surrounding forests. The Imperial Palace sits amid sprawling public gardens. The city is famed for its vibrant food scene, and its Shibuya and Harajuku districts are the heart of its trendy teen fashion scene.
First of all, beyond that fact stuff up there ^ most of you know if you follow me, I live in Canada. Tokyo itself, has half the population of Canada. That is a city! That is insane. Canada is huge. I’m not even sure where the problem with this is coming from anymore. Too few people in Canada or too much in Japan?
Now, for all the book lovers out there, yes, my people out there, man do I have the discovery of a lifetime for you! I just found out about this literally last week. So try this on for size; you know a bed and breakfast. How about:

Bora Bora

Dream and dream big, one of my many life mottos. In particular, travelling the world is one of those dreams on the very top of my list. I’m nowhere near rich, but somehow someday I’m going to get that done and that’s what this new series of posts is all about.

Bora Bora
Island in French Polynesia
Bora Bora is a small South Pacific island northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia. Surrounded by sand-fringed motus (islets) and a turquoise lagoon protected by a coral reef, it’s known for its scuba diving. It’s also a popular luxury resort destination where some guest bungalows are perched over the water on stilts. At the island’s center rises 727m Mt. Otemanu, a dormant volcano.
