I am in awe of my client’s Aurora pics! 😯
This sweet family of 3 (Grandma, Daughter and Grandson) wanted to fulfill their dream of seeing the Northern Lights. We decided on an itinerary that started in Vancouver and then went up to Whitehorse (I did a very similar itinerary myself a few years ago).
I always advise clients to allow themselves 4 or 5 nights of Aurora viewing to optimize their chances of success as there are so many variables at play and Lights are never a guarantee.
I am thrilled these clients were able to witness such a spectacular display. 📷Burgin Vernon #northernlights#auroraborealis#auroraaddicts#exploreyukon#explorecanada#roseoconnortravel
This summer changed my life. Not only did we have our ‘second wedding’, announced our non-traditional name change (thank you all for your support!), but I also got my first tattoo and, more challenging than that, did my first night camping in a tent! 🙈 Haha!
I’m laughing a lot at what I felt was the most daunting of all those! It wasn’t the obvious!
Growth happens at different rates, for different things.
Some things you’ll be ready to step up for, and others will suddenly land in your lap whether you’re ready for them or not. Which would you prefer?
I’ll always prefer to do some preparation where I can. We cannot plan for all the demands on us in life, but there are so many things WE CAN do. We forget the power of being proactive (versus reactive) and our power of choice in so many scenarios.
⬆️ Choose doing things that feel like ‘growth’, no matter how scary.
⬆️ Choose being around positive people who support you and accept you as you are.
⬆️ Choose steps to be healthIER - progress is progress, no matter how small the steps may seem at first.
Choose YOU and choose to allow yourself to live life fully, in full colour and in all its glory. That’s what you were made for. 🌈

“The best part of getting lost, is finding yourself”
The beauty of #BC is remarkable and difficult to leave. I called these mountains home for three years, while I lived in #kelowna as a student. Returning 6 years later, I feel at home.
I’m home from South Carolina and I’m so happy to see we are right in the middle of chilly fall weather! But I also forgot how hard Monday’s are, getting out of bed was a real accomplishment this morning. So here’s a cute pup to help your Monday feel just a little better

Let the Singapore picture blast commence!! ⠀
Since I was in meetings for the majority of my time in Singapore, I had to have a detailed plan laid out for my one big day of exploring! My first stop was Gardens by the Bay, to see their Cloud Forest and Flower Dome exhibits. GBTB is like botanical gardens on mega steroids, and it’s absolutely spectacular! The Supertree Grove is a big must-see in Singapore (and no tickets are actually required to see them), but I highly recommend staying to tour the other exhibits as well. ⠀
Fun fact, if you’ve seen Crazy Rich Asians, Colin and Araminta’s $40 Million wedding took place here in the evening (with these trees all lit up!). If you haven’t seen the movie and want to learn more about Singapore (and enjoy a really great movie), do yourself a favor...it’s on Amazon Prime video 👌🏼 ⠀
Have you ever been to the shooting locations of your favorite movie?? I’d love to know which one and where you went!
A week later and I think I’m still in shock 😱💍😍 but also really freakin’ stoked to spend my life with you babe 😘

One of only three remaining traditional slab hut’s in the region is Brayshaw’s homestead. The hut is an example of traditional bush carpentry techniques, reminiscent of the late 18th early 19th century farming era.
In 1903 the hut was built for David Brayshaw, by his brother. The construction of the hut exemplifies the resourcefulness of the settlers, using materials sourced from the land. In the absence of shop and ready made supplies self-sufficiency was necessary to survival in such isolated areas. Like many men living in remote farming districts, there were fewer women than men and David never married nor raised a family.
He lived in the hut for 28 years. In August 1931, David met a tragic end, falling from his horse and dying of exposure after returning home from visiting family. He was 79 years old.
After David, the homestead was lived in by Roma Brayshaw and husband William Edward, as newly weds. In 1935, Roma wallpapered the internal walls with newspapers to keep out the drafts. Some snippets of this wallpapering still remains today.
The last owners of the homestead were Daphne and Colin Curtis, who extended the homestead to turn it into shearers’ quarters.
The building has been unoccupied since the mid 1970s, when the area became part of Gudgenby Nature Reserve and later Namadgi National Park. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

In May This year I’ve decided that I’m ready and mature enough to have a little doggo friend. I had a clear vision of how my dog should be. Obviously I was conscious that the reality will be rather way different, however, I knew what I’m looking for. I had a vision of nice, well behaved, blue whippet girl with calm, sofa nature when I need and wild will of running next to my bike in the wild. How silly I was! Fortunately I was smart enough to not getting a puppy immediately, but to wait, think about everything 100000000 times, and then decide. In effect I adopted 3 years old Spanish podenco girl, which is absolutely beautiful and absolutely mischievous - “just like her mum” said Bart 😂 . And I’m sure it was the best decision I’ve made! There are so many dogs needing a rescue guys, please think as long as I did when you decide to get a dog. Many people think that they will be satisfied with the “perfect dog” they’re dreaming about, which is so easy: you’re paying breeders and you’re getting what you want. I was so close to do this! But after all I personally think it’s just stupid. I’m not supporting the idea about creating perfect breed to satisfy people, it’s just sick! Ella’s breed is a primitive breed which means it has maybe even 7000 years. Those dogs are naturally strong and healthy, they rather don’t have genetic disorders. So many of them are abandoned in Spain, sentenced to death, suffering from loneliness etc. They’re many organisations that are working on finding the new home for those dogs too. If you’re thinking about having a doggo, please consider getting a podenco, those dogs are very unique, and you won’t regret your decision, but you will be the happiest and the proudest mum / dad ever 🧡🐕 #Ella
