About Allie

a green-eyed aries, a globe trotter, a dreamer, a runner and soccer player, a literature enthusiast and a future teacher.

organization and planning, music, photography, Starbucks coffee, MAC makeup, the color purple, headbands, anything scented coconut or lemon, lots of sleep, romantic comedies, New York City, high heel shoes and dark chocolate.

in living everyday like it is your last, appreciating and learning from experiences, good or bad and seizing every opportunity possible.

will document my life and all the aspects that make up me, with a focus being a traveler, becoming fit  [health, food + fitness] and being a teacher.

I started blogging in July 2010 when I started my Search for Wide Open Spaces and embarked on a journey, living abroad in Dublin, Ireland and traveling to more than 17 countries throughout my year in Europe. Since then, I have returned home to Vancouver, Canada and have started another journey – to become healthy and become a high school teacher.

    I finally found your blog! I’ve been asking your brother about it for some time. You photos are fantastic, and it sounds like you’re having an amazing life experience! I am so happy for you and am totally wishing I was where you are, it is freezing on the west coast right now! Hope your trip is going just as amazing as I last heard and that you and Ashley have tons of fun when she comes to see you!
