Ottawa’s Best Independent Coffee

Hey guys! I’m here today to talk to you about coffee – I don’t know about you, but coffee is a treasured treat to me. Although I have heavily cut down on my consumption of it (side note: I did this because it reduced my anxiety very much. I sooo recommend this), I still love it, and have it every now and then. And since it’s so occasional, I like to get quality drinks.

My relationship with coffee started very young: coming from a Greek family, I remember my uncle giving me sips of coffee as early as age 5, and making me coffee of my own at 7. (I know this sounds completely irresponsible, but trust me, it was all done while considering my age). I don’t ever remember feeling like I actually needed it, but I loved the taste from very early. My love for it only intensified this part year, after I spent a year working at Starbucks and learning about the logistics of it.

Taking Toronto

Hey everyone! How’s the week been?

For this post I thought I’d finally get around to writing about our trip to Toronto last month.  My band (The Monotymes) recently was asked to play a festival in Toronto at Nocturne Bar. Between driving there, eating, and leaving early for classes and work tomorrow, we didn’t have all that much time to explore the city – but that didn’t stop us from having a great time!

Montreal

Hey everyone! How’s it going ?

Last time I talked to you guys about the first part of our Montreal trip – the bouldering. This time I’ll talk to you about everything we did! I’ll just start by saying how excited we were for this trip – the news predicted -40 weather, aaaand we still went. It was cold. So, so cold.

Portugal – the guide to Lisbon & Cascais

Welcome to the very last Portugal post! It’s been very fun and I’m sad that it’s ending, but I’m glad that the complete guide for our trip is now up!

So for our last few days in Portugal, we flew back to Lisbon and spent three nights there. Once we landed, we took the metro to our AirBNB, and let me just say, Lisbon’s public transport system is wonderful! I’ll be talking about it more later.
