    Can Canadians Travel to Europe?

    In normal times, Canadians are able to enter the European Union’s Schengen Area visa-free for up to 90 days. As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has rendered these times anything but normal. Due to the ease of transmission with which the disease spreads, government officials across the globe, including those in Europe, shut down their borders back in March of 2020 in order to stem the spread of the virus.

    7 Secrets of the London Underground

    7 Secrets of the London Underground

    The London Underground has served Londoners since 1863. Since its opening, up to 2 million people ride the tubes every single day on their daily commute. It is no secret that it has become part of London’s identity and an invaluable part of its people’s daily lives. I personally use the Underground at least 10 times per week for various journeys around the Capital and with the joys of the 16-25 Railcard, it becomes the cheapest method of transport in London by far, even beating the London Bus in price and speed, but I think I will save that for another post.

    Our Trip to Europe

    Our Trip to Europe

    Before the pandemic hit, I traveled through Europe with my boyfriend. We were really lucky, his company was holding a conference in Katowice, Poland. After his initial work week, I got to come up and we had two weeks of vacation. Due to the fact that we were Americans who had grown up in poorer households, this was the first time we traveled out of the country. We both had to get passports and brush up on a few common phrases in French and German. When I think back to my time abroad, my initial thoughts have to do with stereotypes and language. The second thought deals with how awful travel can be.

    When you first move to London, Ignorance is bliss. Living in London is a blast. You've made some new friends at work, you now know the area where you live, and you spend most weekends out with your camera, exploring all the hidden London treasures that you didn't even know existed. London nightlife is great (at least before the pandemic). What shocks you is the numbers on the receipts that come out of your pockets in the next morning.
