Summer in Calgary

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share some of the pictures I took when I was home in Calgary this summer.  I hope you enjoy them, especially my favorite, the beautiful blue Alberta skies.


Day 12: Somewhere You’d Like to Move To Or Visit

Well, isn’t this a tough question for someone in a nearly constant state of wanderlust…

There are quite a few places that I’d like to visit right now, in fact, I should probably shorten my bucket list. My dream trip right now would be to travel around Europe, particularly to Germany, Spain, and Italy. I’d also love to go to Austalia, New Zealand, or Peru for an adventure. Hopefully, I’ll get to all those places one day and also have travelled the rest of the world.

I’d also like to visit home, or Cowtown, sometime this summer. Like I’ve mentioned in an earlier post, I definitely miss Alberta a little bit. I’m sure I’ll try to make a quick trip to the mountains and Banff too, since they’re only a short drive away from Calgary.

As for places I’d like to move to, that’s one of my big question marks for after I graduate university next year. Given that I hope to work for the government, Ottawa seems like the most practical choice. However, I’ve really enjoyed living near an ocean these last few years, so I’m also tempted to stay out in the Maritimes or move out to the West coast. Overall, I’m probably not going to move outside of Canada anytime in the foreseeable future.

What places do you guys want to visit or move to? Let me know down below!


Day 1: Introduce Yourself!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the 30 Day Writing Challenge!

My name is Melissa, and I’ve been blogging on here for about three years now.

I’m from Calgary, and I’ve lived there for the majority of my life. That means I’m probably your stereotypical Western Canadian, or that’s what my friends from other provinces say at least…

I just finished off my third year of university towards getting my B.A., which means I’ll be graduating in a year from now. I’m involved in running a history society and writing for the campus newspaper, which keeps me fairly busy as well during the school year.

I like learning languages and taking pictures in my spare time as well. I’m currently working on learning German, while still trying to keep my French and Spanish skills up to par.

Otherwise, you can find out more about me in my bio, or through the rest of my posts this month.

Hope you guys enjoyed this brief intro, and I hope that you stick around for the rest of the 30 Day Writing Challenge!
