This Year Was a Year of Endings and Beginnings
Among my favourite moments of 2016 I ended a relationship with my boyfriend of 1 year. As well I finished my music diploma and got to graduate from Bible College. I quit my job in retail at a small store and took up temp work with an agency instead. Lots of risk and a bit of uncertainty.
My Favourite Moments of 2016
I had my first experience in an Airbnb on Salt Spring Island, explored my own backyard, spent the month of July hosting several different couch surfers at my bachelor apartment and in August took off to the US on a 2 week-long trip to visit family and see Seattle and visit Colorado State.
I also launched into a new business venture with people I really love. As well I made appearances with my first few guest posts on the Blonde Wayfarer, Travel is Not Just for the Young and on the Wandering Blonde, Q + A with Creative Heart Travel and Traveling in Your Own Backyard. Yes this year has had its ups, downs and in-betweens.

Where Will 2017 Take Me?
I am between jobs right not. So that means I don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on travel. I am vigorously searching for the right job. As well, I have a few interviews coming up and will be focusing on my business. The good news is I will be traveling for my business.
This year I will be heading to Calgary, Alberta in the spring. I plan to visit Banff, Jasper and the Canadian Rocky Mountains. In June I will be heading to the US again. I plan to visit Seattle again and also will plan on heading to the Oregon Coast. I have also applied to a few different hostels in the region. One thing I applied for was for a paid apprenticeship working at an HI hostel in the area. Yes dear readers I know and believe 2017 will take you and me to places we never dreamed!! Happy New Year!!
