This year has been anything but steady. It has held some of my favourite travel moments and darkest days, too. Looking back, here’s what I learned in 2016.
Brianna Wiens, the Broad at A Brit and a Broad
Brianna Wiens is an actress, blogger, photographer and producer who has lived Bolivia and travelled to over 20 countries across five continents.
Incredibly creative and free spirited, Brianna loves nothing more than immersing herself in new cultures and societies and really getting a feel for a new city and country. A few of her highlights are chasing the American dream along the Oregon coast, walking the streets of Yangon and ziplining in Monteverde.
When it comes to writing, Brianna really gets into the essences of travelling and what it means to be on the road. A couple of her favourite articles are chasing sunsets in historic Bagan and what has FOMO done for you lately?
Here’s our little gift guide for unique and meaningful ways to say, “I love you!” to mom (or whoever you want) while you’re travelling abroad!
Camden Town in London is home to some of the world’s best street art, so we decided to do a tour with Urban Adventures to get the insider scoop.
Greenland is full of once in a lifetime experiences and flavours. We share our favourites while travelling there and what we recommend for you!
Uunartoq, which literally means “the warm place,” is home to Southern Greenland’s most beautiful natural hot springs, arguably the most beautiful in the world.
We caught up with Anne Nivíka Grødem, a prominent food blogger and instagrammer in Nuuk, to talk about Greenlandic good culture and where things are headed.
If you’re visiting Nuuk in Greenland, the Hike & Dine with Touring Greenland is a must. Not only do you spend the day hiking, you catch your own dinner too!
A step into the past and a cultural staple in Copenhagen, Tivoli Gardens (the second oldest operating amusement park) is a great way to spend an afternoon.
An abandoned airplane crash site isn’t something you find everywhere, so while we were in Tofino on Vancouver Island, we had to check out the hike to see it.
Tofino in British Columbia is known for its beautiful beaches, surf culture and gorgeous hikes. But now, you can add foodie haven to that list too.
You could spend an entire 72 hours in Portland just trying out different breweries and you still probably wouldn’t visit them all. And that’s if you didn’t sleep.
A renovated motor inn, The Jupiter Hotel is now a stylish and hip, central place to lay your head with everything you need, and it really is oh-so very Portland.
A trip to Inle Lake isn’t complete without a tour on the water, and I highly recommend seeing it at sunrise. There is something quite enchanting about it.
Most visitor’s main objective when visiting Bagan in Myanmar is to find the perfect sunset watching spot and there are certainly a lot of them to be found.
With the Shwedagon Pagoda at it’s heart, Yangon in Myanmar is a sensory feast for Buddhists and backpackers. However, there’s a lot more to be seen.
Our stop in Bocas del Toro was filled with days on turquoise waters, delicious eats and a few too many dance moves (after a few too many juices).
Ziplining in Monteverde is basically a rite of passage for any visitor in Costa Rica, and not even my fear of heights was going to get in my way from doing it.
FOMO is a common force driving many people to live their lives based on someone else’s definition of happiness. Are you one of them?
