Have you heard about the 27 Good Things Challenge?
I was recently asked to do the 27 Good Things challenge - that's 3 good things to read, see, and use. (Yes, the math is a bit tricky!) I had so much fun thinking about this - what do you think? What would you choose for your 3 things?
Three things to read:
1.) Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery. Ah, there's no love like your first love! I've been reading and re-reading this series since I was 8 years old and I still love it. Being from Maritime Canada myself, I love the stories of olden Prince Edward Island and try to adapt Anne’s joyous spirit as a guide for my own. And for the history buffs out there: the last book in the series, Rilla of Ingleside, is the only novel that details Canadian domestic life during WWI that was written during the period. Amazingly rich in historical detail.
Ladies - these travel tips are just for you!
Every week, I am proud to co-host the #girlstravel twitter chat - the only twitter travel just for female travelers.
For the week of March 11, the theme surrounds "women's issues" - you know, the kind of things only women have to deal with when they travel! (Caution, male readers: hormones are involved!).
It made me think about how most people bring a bit of an emergency kit with them when they travel (first aid, sewing kit, matches). Maybe the prudent female traveler needs some decidedly feminine backup as well when she travels!
I'm proud to be a Canadian traveler
I was recently tagged by @littlegreybird to be part of the #MyCanada bloggers' roulette, and am honoured to contribute. The concept is that Canadian bloggers write a post about why they love Canada, and what they think travelers should do when they visit Canada. This exercise has given my the opportunity to really think about what Canada means to me, and, since I focus so much on travelling abroad, what it means to be home.
Traveling solo for the first time? These are 10 of my favourite destinations.
In honour of International Women's Day on March 8th, and the #WeGoSolo twitter chat, here are 10 amazing destinations that are perfect for a first time, solo female travelers.
I've been to them all and I can heartily endorse them. I've traveled in North America, Africa, and Europe, and I feel very sure there are many other cities around the world which would be perfect for a new explorer.
Which one sounds like the place for you?
It is hard to believe that this blog was only started one short year ago.
In January of this year TurnipSeed Travel relaunched into this new blog-space and ported over most of the old posts, but the whole thing really started last March.
It wouldn't be possible to do this if I didn't have such amazing, dedicated readers. This month, the site is on pace to reach almost 10,000 page views. THANKS TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU.
I really appreciate the love, support, and feedback I have received about this site, and am so happy to have made a lot of friends just as travel crazy as me!
Here's to getting even better in Year 2. More content, more photos, more books reviewed, and I hope, more wonderful people like all of you coming to visit.
With our around the world trip coming in the fall, you can bet to read a lot more posts about how to go about planning, booking, packing, etc on a trip.
