Welcome to Happy to Wander – a Canadian travel blog that puts the spotlight on offbeat and off-the-radar destinations.

My goal is simple: to inspire you to venture off the beaten path and discover some of the coolest travel destinations in the world – some of which you’ve never heard of, or thought to visit.

Consider me an enthusiastic cheerleader for the unappreciated gems of the world. 

The philosophy behind this blog is simple: at Happy to Wander, you can expect travel advice like you’d get from a friend – honest, funny and filled with anecdotes/misadventure. Forget robotic tips and soulless guides, I promise each post here will be packed with personality and most importantly, no-fluff advice to make your travel dreams come true.

So whether you’re looking for cool, off-the-beaten-path destinations, or searching for offbeat ways to experience famous ones, I’m your girl. Grab a beer and let’s go see the world!
