I am a firm believer in that classic Saint Augustine quote:
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
Emily’s Journeys Abroad is a place where I will exhibit through writing and photos of how I choose to read this book.
I was born in a boring little Canadian town of Smiths Falls, Ontario. Since then, I have moved around the country with my family because my dad is a Mountie (you know, the red guy on a horse?) so his job took us all over. We’ve lived in Vancouver, Prince Rupert (near Alaska) and Kingston but grew up mainly in Gananoque, Ontario.
But now, I’ve had enough of the small towns – onto bigger and better things.
I am now a proud holder of a Bachelor of Commerce degree and have just moved abroad again to Lyon, France to pursue a position at an International Organization that is headquartered here.
I have had the amazing privilege to travel to over 26 countries and have lived in 3 of them. I lived in Antibes, France for 5 months on a study exchange. I have also lived in Madrid, Spain au pairing with a lovely family for 3 months and have also lived in Rome, Italy working for a pub crawl for a summer. And now, France again!
I would love for this blog to provide me with the opportunity to meet other like-minded travelers who
love exploring the world the way I do. I would love to hear about other people’s experiences too, so please feel free to comment or email me : )
Places I would love to venture to next: Turkey, Brazil, Russia, South Africa,
Afghanistan (The Middle East fascinates me) and Laos
My favourite places so far: Sarajevo, Jerusalem, Capri, Goa, Cinque Terre, Monaco and Guatemala
