CUBA! {PART THREE – HAVANA}

On the Tuesday, after our Seatour, we headed out from our hotel to a private tour to Havana. The tour was quite affordable considering it was a full day and it was private, which meant we did not have to fight through a group of people to hear what we were being told.  THE CAR […]

CUBA! {PART ONE – THE RESORT}

Emerald Lake Hike & Natural Land Bridge, Yoho National Park, BC

For my mom’s birthday, on July 15, she really wanted to hike around Emerald Lake. We had never been before and I was quite excited to photograph the blue water! The weekend before we had done the hike to Laughing Falls, so it seems we were on the theme of Yoho National Park!

Cold War Bunker!

During summer 2016 my mom, my friend, and of course myself went for a hike that we had found about through some research. As I mentioned in my post about waterfalls I prefer hikes where we have a goal in mind (i.e. making it to a waterfall or in this case … a Cold War Bunker!). I […]
