Hello and welcome to my website! I’m so glad that you found your way here. 

If you would like to know more about me, here is a short introduction. 

About Me:

I’m Brittany, a 20-something year old living simply near a small town in the Canadian prairies, who loves traveling independently and deeply, exploring off the beaten path both locally in my province of Manitoba and beyond, eating and cooking healthy, plant-based and gluten-free foods and meals, taking photographs, learning about foreign cultures, languages and cuisines, and seeking meaningful experiences and authentic adventures wherever I go.

I am passionate about exploring new places,

Who Is This Blog For?

The purpose of this blog is to hopefully provide travel planning resources, tips, advice & recommendations, recipes and tips for healthy eating & simple living, as well as inspiration to explore more and travel deeper for solo female travelers, independent explorers, outdoor adventurers, nature enthusiasts, health-conscious individuals (plant-based and gluten-free), introverts, minimalists and budget-conscious backpackers. 


What Is This Blog About?

This blog is a collection of my travels, personal reflections, recipes, and photography. This is my little place on the internet where I document and share my favourite healthy, plant-based & gluten-free recipes; stories, reviews, in-depth guides, tips, and photography from my travel adventures, urban and outdoor explorations, local wanderings in my home province of Manitoba, and personal reflections from my everyday life. 

I blog about travel, food, exploring and having adventures both at home and abroad, and living a healthy, simple and natural lifestyle.

On this blog, I write and share stories and photography from my own experiences, travel adventures and local wanderings and explorations both in my home province of Manitoba (Canada) and abroad; in-depth travel guides for the places I have visited; reviews (accommodation, product, restaurants, tours, activities, etc.); simple and healthy plant-based recipes; tips for living a healthy, simple and natural lifestyle; detailed articles about a variety of travel-related topics (solo female travel, deeper and off the beaten path travel, misconceptions about places and debunking negative myths, staying safe, responsible travel, cultural insights, packing tips and lists, travel research and planning, ethnic cuisines, and more); tips for healthy and natural living and so much more!

I live near a small town in the province of Manitoba and the country of Canada. I love exploring further and deeper while seeking off the beaten path adventures and experiences and discovering hidden local gems when I am at home. I enjoy browsing local farmers markets, eating at new restaurants, wandering and exploring residential neighbourhoods, spending time in nature while relaxing or having picnics at local parks, going hunting for colourful street art and murals, and more.

Travel Styles:

I love traveling on a budget, independently, often solo (but also sometimes with family), responsibly and deeper while exploring and discovering hidden gems off the beaten path, having meaningful experiences and unique and authentic adventures, learning about and immersing myself in the local culture, history and language, staying in unique and alternative accommodations away from the main tourist areas, navigating and using the public transportation, eating the authentic and traditional cuisine at local or family-owned restaurants, and supporting the local economy by shopping local where possible.
