Don’t ask why, but lately I’ve been craving some traveling. I’ve never really left my little hometown, except for a few trips in the States and exploring my own province a little bit (read about my day in Montreal here!). But Netflix has been adding a lot of amazing movies this past month and a couple of hours later, here I was, imagining myself roaming the streets of Rome with Julia Roberts in Eat Pray Love. 

But the thing is, I cannot really travel. Or at least, not right now. With college under its way and me working almost every week (and weekend!), I don’t have that much time to dedicate to travel. Add to that my hunt for an internship and homework, and I’m full!

One of the ways I love to get closer to a country and exploring its culture is learning its language. As a former language student, learning a new foreign language is something I love doing. It’s a lot of work, yes. But it’s also a lot of fun!

You might or might not know that English is not my mother tongue *gasps*. So trust me when I say that learning new languages will take you far! It’s a skill that’s never lost. Where would I be if I hadn’t learned English? No matter what field you end up working in, knowing more than one language is always helpful. You never know when you might meet someone who simply doesn’t understand a word you’re saying (and trust me, it will happen, one way or another).

And even if that doesn’t happen at work, knowing more than one language is a great asset, especially when you’re traveling! You’ll get a lot closer to the local population if you can speak their language. You’ll get to experience the true traveling experience, and that simply doesn’t have a price!

Over the years as a language lover, I’ve developed a few tips that helped me understand a foreign tongue better and learn it faster! And no, it does not require you to spend a penny on anything! (Unless you want to book a ticket to your dream destination, then please, be my guest!)  View Post

As you know, I was supposed to go to Toronto. But, life happened, and next thing you know, I’m canceling our hotel reservation. As you might imagine, I was very disappointed. I had built a lot of expectations on that trip that I was devastated when I found out that it was no longer happening.

A Day in Montreal

To cheer me up, my parents, who had I had ranted to about the trip throughout the entire organization process, decided that I needed a little getaway. Since my mom was on her summer break and my sister had the day off from work, my dad took the day off and we headed off to Montreal for the day.

Okay, here is the thing. If there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I love making lists. To-do lists, shopping lists, wishlists, bucket lists… and the list goes on. (See what I did there? 😉 )

But you should probably also know that I love to travel. I haven’t traveled a lot in my life (I’ve only been to the USA a few times), but every time I have, I simply loved it. I love discovering new places and new cultures.

For as far as I can remember, traveling has always been a dream of mine. Click through to find out what destinations are on my travel wishlist!

This is why today I’ve decided to combine two of the things I love into one and share with you my the top 10 dream destinations that are on my travel wishlist.
