My mom has always been fond of animals and as far back as I can remember, there has always been at least one furry family member in my life. Looking back, I’m really glad that pets were a presence during my childhood, and for many reasons. I know several parents who are against allowing their kids to have pets and I think this is the wrong mindset. I want to share my experience growing up with pets and why I think they are beneficial to a child’s development.
Any Canadian who has had the displeasure of going through a government agency/body for any kind of documentation knows that the process is usually a miserable and agonizingly long experience. Government offices are generally slow to move, with a lot of paperwork (which delays processing) and long line ups/wait times. However, I am very pleased to say that renewing your passport via the new ‘Simplified Renewal Passport Application’ is a winner for efficiency in my books.
So anyone who has done a bit of travelling (or who has at least done a bit of research) knows that travel is expensive. Sure, you can get a few [last minute] deals here and there and a few sites exist to help you find loopholes for flight booking errors and price comparisons, but overall, travel is pretty damn expensive! My trip to Turkey last April cost nearly $3400 all expenses in! So how does one afford a trip away from time to time on their own pocket change? Here’s what I recommend.
This week’s post is a fairly short one, with the purpose of creating discussion. Over the years I’ve read all about the different types of jobs that can lead to travel opportunities. I chose the hospitality industry so that I could (maybe one day) have the opportunity to travel through work, and perhaps reap the benefits associated with these types of roles. But are these so-called ‘travel perks’ really worth it? I’d like to hear it from you!
I’m working my way through life in Canada and traveling when I can afford to explore beyond the border. Sharing my tips, trips, opinions and rants on life and travel in the meantime.
