Last summer, mere days after my plane landed from my time on the west coast of Canada, I embarked with my family on a nearly day-long drive from Toronto to the east coast. Nova Scotia is an incredibly beautiful place, and I quickly became enraptured with the quiet beauty of the maritimes. It was also my first time seeing the ocean in person, to feel the salty spray of the water against my skin, the wind breezing through my sweater and cooling me down even on the warmest of summer days.
Travelling is such an amazing thing, as it allows you to take in sights, cultures, and many different experiences around the world. Whether you’re travelling through different locations or choosing to simply visit a particular area, it’s always important to prepare properly, because you could end up missing out on so many opportunities. You can check out one of our previous posts entailing some must haves when it comes to travel, so that you can begin checking off things on your list of things to do before you jet off.
I’d like to welcome you all to the very first issue of the Wanderous Affair travel magazine. This magazine will serve as an extension of my main website, featuring articles written by some of the greatest nomadic authors and photographers that I have had the pleasure of connecting with.
Warning: A little bit of contemplative rambling is to be expected ahead…
I received the above TUT (Note From the Universe) last week. I signed up for these Notes around six years ago, and haven’t turned back since; they’re an amazing way to start your morning, the perfect thing to see the moment that you wake up. This Note in particular really got me thinking, though…
“You’re the only person who knows what’s right for you.” As if right on cue for exactly what I’ve been needing to hear (or read, in this case), this Note came in and wham! hit me right in the heart.Read More
A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of going to a ROM Speaks event at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) with one of my favourite ladies, Émeraude. This one was on 70 Years of Dior, with Florence Müller leading the discussion whilst elaborating on the history of the House of Dior from the dawn of its creation in 1947 to the modern day, as well as her career working with the House from Paris to North America. It was incredible to see how the style of the House has evolved, from the flared skirts and tapered waists when Christian Dior was alive and oversaw the designs, to the modern day embroidery and flowing skirts, 60 years after his 1957 death (and under the creative eye of Maria Grazia Chiuri).Read More
In the wake of Brexit, there are more and more questions that remain unanswered. At this time last year, I was a Canadian student with the dream of going for my Master’s Degree in England, and relying on my Italian citizenship (and as a result, ‘local’ student fees as opposed tot he astronomical foreign student fees) that would come along with it. However, after Brexit, I began to reconsider if I really needed to pursue a university education any further. Regardless of whether or not trade deals can be achieved, for a lot of young people, it’s the sense that their future has been robbed. At the heart of their worries is the constant pressure put on British universities to offer student-friendly tuition fees, something that will be difficult once the EU university fundings stop. So, quite naturally, you want to ask yourself whether you should or not pursue your studies and go to university. Will it still be worth it, post-Brexit?
