My name is Lizzie Conrick and I am a second year Arts student studying at the University of Melbourne.


My first overseas trip: looking out over Paris from on top of the Eiffel Tower

This blog is going to be the vehicle through which I will explore the stunning, picturesque realm that is Canada. After much deliberation I opted for the land of maple syrup because of this raw, natural beauty.

The adventure element of travel is something that intrigues me so my focus whilst exploring Canada will be adventure-based activities that are fun, risky and spontaneous.

Pico Iyer suggests that we travel ‘to become young fools again’, and this quote forms the basis for my blog’s direction. I will explore through a lens where I will embrace spontaneity, and will find the balance between youthful, borderline foolish adventures, and outright danger and threats to safety. The “keep calm and carry on” images that are seen on social media will be kept in mind throughout my virtual travels. This sense of calm is essential to smarter travelling!

Stay tuned….
