“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.”
. Jack Kerouac
05/2011: I started this blog summer of 2009, because after a year and a half of traveling I was returning to “real” life. A life different from before my travels; this time I knew an amazing elephant and I knew what I wanted for my future. I turned twenty-seven that summer, a perfect start to a new blog. Time has passed since, travels have been few and far between, but there have been explorations of Algonquin Park, a reunion with Pailin and croissants in Quebec City. Life continues to be a journey with an unknown destination, so I shall continue to document.
. a cafe mocha with whipped cream
. browsing bookstores for hours
. brand new journals
. the smell of rain on a summers day
. trips to the farmers market
. the taste of salty sea water when swimming/surfing
. my elephant is named Pailin, and she is the sweetest, most loving and gentle elephant in the world. She has given me purpose and a reason for being.
. my favorite ingredient for cooking is aubergines
. favorite surfspot is Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia. Cold, salty and divine.
. although I only lived in Halifax, NS, for two years, I consider it my hometown.
. dance classes are my joy; from hip hop to ballet
. i once grew a tall avocado plant. one of the proudest moments of my life.
. after my traveling I became a vegetarian, and have found the adjustment easy – except when I smell bacon
