No matter when you visit, there is absolutely no shortage of things to do in Banff. This tiny town sits in the middle of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and is spectacularly beautiful virtually all year round. Despite its reputation as a launchpad for ski slopes and hiking trails, there’s a lot more to do in Banff than outdoor adventures to suite people of all ages and interests.
Wondering what it’s like to live in Sydney? Wonder no more! After living in Canada (and Italy for a hot minute) and travelling pretty extensively through Europe and Asia, I’ve come to realise there are a few fun facts about living in Sydney others don’t necessarily think about.
Travelling with makeup is something I’ve always done. Even when I backpacked through India, I had a small stash of cosmetic basics that I whipped out on a daily basis. I wouldn’t have had it any other way, but I did feel like there was a bit of judgment around it because, well, when you have a small amount of space to carry all your travel gear, vanity feels unnecessary.
Not sure on the best time to visit Banff? As a former resident of town, I can tell you summer is beautiful, but it’s not necessarily the best time to go. Here’s why.

Is your family more freaked out by solo travel than you are? Maybe they’re trying to convince you not to go, hitting you with a bunch of horrifying news articles, or stopping you from going at all? Follow these steps and you’ll be on that plane in no time!
Move over, Iceland! There are a range of top holiday places in 2019 that are just as mystifying, spectacular, and culturally-rich as the land of fire and ice. Pack a sturdy pair of shoes – you’re going to need them.
If you’re reading this, you must be planning on travelling by yourself and omgosh I’m so excited for you and you’ll have the best time. Ever. Ever ever. Buuut you’ve probably realised there’s a lot of information to wrap your head around (when’s the best time to book flights? Should you get an international money card?) – it can be overwhelming, so I’ve broken the hard bits down for you to make it all a bit easier to digest.
So you’ve decided to buy a ticket and hop on a big jet plant all the way to Australia, but you’re stuck on the eternal question: Sydney or Melbourne? As the country’s two biggest cities, it can be hard to know which one echoes your vibes, so I’m here to help you figure it out.
It’s early November and this is about as cold (5-degrees) and wet as it got in the depths of winter in Vancouver. Soon the rain will turn in to snow, the temperature will drop another 20-degrees, and I’ll be the coldest I’ve ever been in my life.
Is the Frank And Oak ‘Style Plan’ Subscription Box worth it? I gave a go and here’s what happened.

Sick of pouring all your liquids in to a series of 100ml bottles and hoping they didn’t run out? What if I said you never had to do that again! Here’s a fail-safe list of vegan solid toiletries for travel that won’t get confiscated at the carry-on x-ray machine.
in Australia, we just don’t do stuff like dress for the cold, install heating in every room, or wear lined boots, wind-breakers, and coats that actually keep you warm. To me, anything below 12-degrees Celsius is like an arctic-blast to the face.
When you’re thinking about what to wear in Cambodia, it’s super important to think about the time of year - I went in April and oh my good goodness it was hot. If you don’t do what I did and go in April you might be cooler, but by that I mean 30-degrees instead of 45 with high humidity.
Like many, I assumed Banff would be a beautiful, tranquil town nestled in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Locals and tourists would hike or ski most days, and the silence at night would be a nice change from city life. While it’s definitely beautiful, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and everyone does like to hike or ski on weekends, it’s anything but quiet or tranquil.
While many may think packing for a trip to Japan is straightforward, the weather during the summer can be swelteringly-hot, and on top of that, summer is also the rainy season, so pre-planning what to wear in Japan will make a huge difference to your holiday.
Whether you're going casual or fine dining, there are hidden places around the city that are happy to make you Italian-style pizza with no cheese, Vietnamese soup with no shrimp paste, and pancakes with no milk or eggs. So sit back and feast your eyes! This is the best vegan food in Sydney, and these gems are truly amazing.
Wondering what to take camping in Iceland? You’re not alone! I’m from sunny Australia, and I know I’ve said it before, but we just don’t do cold. So when I decided to camp around the fjords in the arctic circle, I had absolutely no idea what kind of stuff to take to keep myself warm and dry, and started researching like crazy to gather an assortment of stuff to keep myself alive and happy on the Ring Road.
If you, like me, looked at the costs of moving to Vancouver and involuntarily said aloud ‘Gee whiz that place is expensive...’, then read on! All hope is not lost for you and your bank account.
When I planned my trip to Iran, I was nervous – it would be my first solo trip to a country in that region and I had no idea what to expect. But instead of focusing on my itinerary or the news, I occupied myself with practical preparation – what was I going to wear?
If you’ve been told putting on weight is just part of travelling, think again!
