One Day In Bath, England

Located in southwest England, Bath is one of the country’s most beautiful and picturesque cities. It is known for its Roman Baths, built by Romans centuries before the creation of the UK, which helped the city develop into what it is today, as it is named after these baths. It is also known for its collection of Georgian architecture, much of which is built with locally mined Bath Stone. Bath was also the home of Jane Austen, a famous British writer, who wrote the classic ‘Pride & Prejudice’. To sum it up, Bath is pretty much the perfect quintessentially English city. Last summer, my family and I spent a day exploring the city, which I will be writing about in this post!

Dream Destinations: Western & Southern Europe

Western Europe, one of the world’s richest regions, is defined by its collection of medieval castles, from Germany’s Neuschwanstein Castle to Scotland’s Edinburgh castle, and its many world renowned landmarks, from the UK’s Big Ben to Paris’ Eiffel Tower.

Canada’s Queen City: A Guide to Toronto, Ontario

Toronto, Canada’s largest city, is probably one of my favourite cities in the world. The city, which was established in 1834 as York, and later renamed Toronto, is the capital of its province, Ontario, as well as the fifth largest city in North America. Home to a very diverse group of people, with 50% of its residents being born outside of the country, Toronto is also one of the world’s most interesting cities. The world’s third largest tower, the CN Tower, dominates the city’s thriving skyline, while the world’s largest underground pedestrian system, the PATH, keeps the city bustling even beneath ground. I lived in Toronto for three years, and both sides of my family have lived in Toronto for a combined total of over eighty years, so I know a lot about the city. Therefore, in this post, I am going to be guiding you through where to stay, what to do, what to see, and how to get around Toronto.
