My First Couch-surfing Experience: British Columbia

Last month I had the chance to couchsurf in one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever traveled to: Vancouver, B.C. Before this trip, I usually stayed in either hostels or airbnb’s while traveling. Since I was on a tighter budget this time around, my friend and I decided to try out couch-surfing, and I’m beyond glad I did! Not only did I have the chance to meet some of the most generous and kind-hearted people, I made really close friends who I still keep in contact with.

First Backpacking Trip Abroad: PERU!

This August, I was determined to go on a trip abroad with my boyfriend to either Central or South America. I was limited on both time and money, and had only three weeks to spare. So after hours of googling, we arrived at a decision: Peru. (Scrolling through hundreds of photos of baby alpacas sold it for me). Next step was to begin planning our 3-week itinerary.
