Last week, I flew back to Canada after studying abroad in Singapore for four months. Calling my exchange experience “fun” would be a massive understatement. Here is a brief summary of my reflections on these past four months. (more...)
Seven days was an extremely short time for the massive country of Australia. We wanted to do as many things as possible, so we planned wisely and visited three cities: Cairns, Melbourne, Sydney. (more…)
I have been studying in Singapore for over two months now. Actually that is a false statement, since I haven’t been doing much ‘studying’. I’ve mostly been travelling; and when I am not travelling, I have been planning for travelling and sleeping. (more...)
I spent 5 days on Tioman Island in Malaysia getting certified for PADI’s Open Water Diver program. PADI, Professional Association of Diving Instructors, is the largest internationally recognized diving association. The Open Water Diver course is the entry level course for anyone who wants to learn how to scuba dive.
Several people have asked me questions regarding planning for their own Japan trip, so here is a post describing my itinerary and some tips I have for Japan travellers. I travelled in Japan for 8 full days plus one day at each end for travel. I think our itinerary worked out really well for a first-timer in Japan! Feel free to ask me any other questions if you want more details.
