Facebook0Twitter0Pinterest0Google+0Welcome to this week’s edition of Sunday Snapshot. This week I’m taking you to a country which I both love and hate. A country that many people love and hate. China! China is by far one of the more challenging destinations in the world... #kunming #sundaysnapshot

By far the largest photo essay I have ever posted. Happy Canada Day!
Happy 148th Birthday, Canada! Canada is a relatively new country compared to many, but don’t let that fool you, it’s a country filled will stunning landscapes, delicious food, friendly locals, and more! I may be biased, but it’s still true. Canada may not have the largest... #canadaday #photoessay

It's happening, I'm returning to Southeast Asia. BOOM!
When I’m not travelling in Southeast Asia, I miss it, terribly. I miss the people, culture, history, landscapes, food. I miss the heat and the challenges that come with being in countries filled with tiny people. I miss fresh delicious pineapples and peanuts mixed with chili... #southeastasia

Nepal has been on my mind, and as I lay in bed last night I couldn't help remembering my time in Haîti last year, speaking to locals and learning about the failure of foreign aid after the earthquake.

Nepal needs more than money, in my opinion. Along with the money, they need help and guidance. They need foreign aid to working alongside them, to teach and assist them. 

Not a bandaid.

It is so important to think about the charities we support, looking at the aid they give, their track records, whether admin costs come into play. I've included a couple choices in this post for charities that are covering the admin costs so your money will go straight to Nepal.

I also talk a little about charity in general.

There is still time - Sunday is the last day to enjoy the Chinese New Year High Tea at Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto
There are a handful of foodie experiences that I am willing to drive through a blizzard to enjoy; especially when it means I have to drive into downtown Toronto, from the country. Normally I would cancel my plans and stay in the countryside, but Shangri-la’s Chinese... #chinesenewyear #hightea

It’s known as the city of love, but that is not the only reason to visit Paris. And frankly, visiting Paris, solo, can be a lot of fun. Seriously, I have never travelled to Paris with another person, and I have never left the city thinking “Ugh, that sucked”. When you guys voted on Facebook for...

There is so much more to Poland, than WWII!
Germany invaded Poland on September 1, 1939, the Russians invaded 16 days later, thus beginning the European theatre of World War II. By October 6th the Germans and Russians occupied all of Poland. The war lasted for five years and eight months in Europe, and during that time... #poznan #warsaw

I didn't plan on writing about this today, it just kind of happened. 
I always debate about whether or not I should write about my weight. It’s not that I think people will leave nasty body shaming comments, which I’m sure a few would, it’s more about the fact that I hate talking about it. And that is the problem, nobody talks about it. I know... #overweighttraveller

Since my first trip in Asia I have been on the look out for cheap and delicious eats in Canada. Expedia Canada asked me to share the best, on-a-budget meals across Canada.

These are the best meals I’ve had, for under $15.
Travelling the world gave me an appreciation for food with flavour, spice, and creativity. Gone where the days of roast beef or roast chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy, a staple in my house when I was growing up. While I can appreciate those family dinners, I crave flavour... #bestcheapeats

One of the things I love about going on a food tour is discovering new (to me) places to shop and eat. I am a foodie after all. Oh, who am I kidding, I am a bit of a food snob. Which is one of the reasons why I love going on food tours when I’m travelling... #chowbellataste&travel #toronto
