Within the space of two weeks, so much can change. For example, a sunny and tropical forest can turn into a winter wonderland.
Six months of planning a two month journey can change in a matter of seconds.
After a month of using a new, organic deodorant can turn into shock as you realise it's moisturizer (yeah, more to come on this).
Change is my nightmare and it exhausts me, which is exactly why I threw myself headfirst into it.
Travel isn't always fresh croissants in the morning and cocktails at night. Sometimes it's about challenges and recovery, and learning how to cope with situations you've never encountered.
It's exhausting and exhilarating and you always get more than you bargained for. Every challenge and bump in the road you overcome is a victory, and the hard parts make the adventures worth it.
Missing my hometown and the people that make it home. oh yeah and the carefree feeling I felt on this particular day 💙💙💙

I feel like Vancouver is doing it's best to hate me already 😅
I got sick as soon as I got here and my car got broken into... Fortunately aside from that I've pushing through into the positives.. I get to take care of this big baby of a dog who can't handle car rides 🤣 (makes trying to get to hikes fun) and the place I'm staying at is quite nice, it's looking like the next one is almost lined up already and I'll be here until mid March at least.
So Vancouver if you want me to go away so bad you might have to try a little bit harder...that's not a challenge please stop.
You wouldn't know it, but this was one of the hardest days on my travels. Thank god I had to walk the dog, because being in the quiet of the forest really grounded me.
I was on my own for two days, my host having gone to the city for a course. By 10am I'd spent an hour failing to light the fire, 10 minutes trying to get the coffee percolator open, and 5 minutes frantically showering before I could take the dog out. This was followed by the world's worst haircut...I was hungover, cold, and without caffeine, very vulnerable.
Thankfully the neighbours are a dream and rescued me and my shitty haircut. It might look like a beautiful day out, and it totally was, but it was also full of BS. •
P.S. I was twisting the percolator closed instead of open. Real ego boost.

Welcome to An Honest Traveller, an ongoing story of a travel story that seems to regularly encounter bumps, as I think most travel does. I'm a 23 year old girl who's been moving country and travelling since the age of 6, so you'd think I'd have it cracked by now.
Travel is unbelievably unglamorous (just me?!) and since leaving London for Canada just over a month ago, things have SO not gone to plan.
I was supposed to go to my second @workawayinfo in some remote place, 7 hours north from Vancouver, and in less than 24 hours decided I needed to leave. Sometimes the most exciting plans don't work out the way you thought. The bus ride home was emotional but a relief.
I'm back to my first host, formulating what comes next...
