Meet my travel bug . . .
It bit me hard at a very young age . . .
And as a result, this is me now . . .
A girl whose eyes start sparkling and body starts filling up with joy with the thought of TRAVEL. A severe form of WANDERLUST . . . My passion for capturing memories through the lens of my camera, my love for food and the joy I find in reflecting on my travel memories using a pen and paper results in a series of blog entries filled with warmth, pure happiness and inspiration. I hope to share a little bit of myself and my adventure of life with you.
Wow!! Good job, Al !!!
Cool post . . . Where are you going next (I saw something about New Zealand, but wasn’t sure)?
I only looked for a little while but I can already see your adventurous spirit!
I completely fell in love with your Wanderlust image! It is absolutely perfect and it really moved me. Thanks for posting that, it was exactly what I needed to see. Thanks Alli!
Ni hao! It looks like your life is an amazing adventure! Thanks for visiting my blog today and liking my latest post.
Inspiring! Gosh I have been bitten too! :0)

Since I haven’t travel that much, reading yours make me wants to travel to. Love this one: I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be. So True!!

Thanks for visiting my blog! You seem like a kindred spirit. I too was infected with a severe form of wanderlust at a young age, and it still hasn’t let go of me. Get me on a plane, or on the road, visiting different and exotic places, and I am in heaven.
You have a lovely blog. :)

Terrific blog Alli. I hope you can keep your travel going forever. Keep enjoying.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.

Hi Alli! Thanks for checking out my blog – look forward to keeping up with your travels!
Thanks for visiting my blog! I can totally relate to your wanderlust. Seems there is no cure for that darn travel bug (thank God)! :-) happy travels and keep up the great blog!
Your blog is really cool and you’re cool too :)
The same bug that bit you has bit me. It’s nice to see others who feel the same way, truly nice :)
Wonderful and very cool blog! Thanks for dropping by mine too. :)
Hi :) I’ve just nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award! Come see: http://clairebear2013.wordpress.com/2013/03/21/liebster-blog-award/
Thank you very much for the nomination, Claire!
No problem Alli, keep up the great blog! :)
i ADORE your vintagey photos, can’t get enough of that style! Can’t wait to read more about your adventures – from a fellow Canadian :p
Thank you so much Catherine! :D x
Wow! I don’t know where to begin. Glad to get your like and more importantly to see your blog. I certainly share your passion for travel.
I saw mention of your blog on my friend Steve’s “Around the World with Steve” blog. I love the pictures and vitage postcards/pin-up art (my daughter would love your site…she has a thing for pin-up art). I love to travel too, but most of mine of late has been local (Unitied States). Anyway…you have a beautiful blog and the writings of your travels are interesting. Keep on writing and traveling for as long at that is your passion!
Hi there! I love vintage anything. It’s so timeless. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog :)
Hey Alli- Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I think traveling is a lifestyle, and its all about the life-travel balance. In order for “normal” folks like us to sustain that lifestyle, we have to incorporate and infuse it in our lives in a manageable way! I love your blog and look forward to following your travels. New Zealand is one of my favorite places on the planet. You will have an amazing adventure!
I completely agree :) Thanks very much for the warm wishes of my upcoming trip! I can’t wait!
I enjoy reading your blog so I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blog Award. :) http://castlesineurope.wordpress.com/about-me/very-inspiring-blog-award/
Thank you so much Alyssa! Can’t wait to work on it! :D

Wow, love your writing style, and so jealous of the places you’ve been. I’m getting there but my travel bug is nowhere near done biting. ;)
Hi there, thank you so much! The travel bug never stops biting… :P
Very inspiring blog! :)
Lovely blog Alliblair. I think you might like my new book – Two Minute Noodle – published today on Amazon – I am very excited.
Thanks, Howie. And congratulations!
And, somehow, I just suspect you would not call the government to help rescue you, Alli! You give travel and travellers a good name, mate! Keep reporting back for us sticks in the mud who barely make it past the front door. D.

Hi Rachael, thank you!
I too have been bitten by the same bug as you, but I am just alot older. My advice…do it while you are young…life SO gets in the way when you get older.
I’m trying, I’m trying! One thing that gets in the way while you’re young: $$$!!!!
Love the classic Vargas Girls in the margins. You don’t see those very often these days.
Nice post :) Came to know many things :)
Your personality really comes through in your writing. Great job!
Thank you! That means a lot to me.
Outstanding. Thank you for sharing your adventure.
