My name is Kathleen and I was born and raised in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. I am an incredibly proud ‘Caper’ and Canadian and enjoy sharing where I come from in the world with all those I meet along the way.
Why the blog? I am a pharmacist by profession and found it very difficult to express myself creatively in my job. I wanted a way to tap into my artistic side and foster the parts of myself outside of work. My mother was an english teacher all her life and has a passion for writing. It seemed a natural fit for me.
Why the name? As a little girl growing up in rural Nova Scotia I had a burning desire to see the world. For most people in my world life began and ended at the Canso Causeway, which only made my desire to travel stronger. I remember promising myself at a very early age that I would travel after I finished high school, went to university, and obtained a degree that could I could support myself with. First come responsibilities, then comes travel.
What can I find on the blog?: I dipped my toes into the world of blogging with my love of travel, and a way to keep my family in touch with my whereabouts in the world and all of the experiences I was having. You can find all of my “travelogues” sorted by destination from the main menu. After a bit of a writing hiatus, I am determined to blog consistently and to branch out in topics to other things I am passionate about: lifestyle, healthcare, and personal development.
I hope you enjoy reading the blog as much as I enjoy writing it.
