About

Roop-Gill-TorontoHiya!

Welcome to my personal travel blog. Here’s the blog’s backstory: this blog was born four years ago when I was fixated with making it big as a travel writer. That plan didn’t go very well since I am now a financial journalist working at a tech start-up.

Despite the change in career plans, I continued to blog to keep friends and family updated as I galavanted around the globe. This baby has slowly morphed into a pet project I am quite proud of. In fact, earlier this year, I won the laurel for the Best Travel and Expat Blog at the Canadian Blog Awards. Hurrah!

Now, here’s my backstory: I am a 24-year-old journalist, vegetarian pescetarian, blogger, and self-proclaimed globe-trotter. I am a proud Canadian from Toronno (sic), but my wanderlust has taken me to all of the six non-frigid continents. I am, however, determined to go Antarctica one day. I have lived in India, Ethiopia, Denmark, Singapore, England and Australia, and travelled to an additional 30 countries (31 if you count Scotland as a separate one). I am an instagram addict, a hopeless documentarian and a social butterfly, determined to continue sharing the highlights of my travels and adventures in the little free time I have.

These days I call London home. In true Londoner fashion, everyday I complain about the weather, the tube, the cost of living and everything else the cloudy sky. But, I refuse to leave.

For now.

I am currently working at State, in love with my Canon 60D, and probably planning my next adventure.
