A blog for travel lovers, history buffs, geography nerds, and those seeking adventure.

Hey there, I'm..

Brooklyn Murtaugh

I’m a Canadian whose aim is to see as much of the world as I can, on my limited vacation days. I work full time, and want to show you that it’s possible for you to work full time, but still make use of those precious vacation days!

I have a full time job, so I understand how difficult it can be to make time for a trip, let alone plan one. I hope that my personal adventures and travel tips can be a resource to you. And may my banana bread recipe become your new favorite breakfast. Yes, I throw in the odd recipe or two occasionally!

From an early age I’ve dreamed of exploring the world. Friends in school would grab for the fashion magazines and gossip columns, while I would happily settle with a copy of National Geographic. Always dreaming of faraway lands and cultures that I knew nothing of.

And I am still dreaming of those lands and unfamiliar cultures.

I am happiest when I’m exploring somewhere new, and then telling everyone about it. I love to share my experiences, the good, bad, or down right awful, with others.

I’ve snorkeled The Great Barrier Reef, gone bungee jumping in New Zealand, worked as an au pair in Australia, pretended to be a Hobbit at Hobbiton, and spent one of my favorite days ever on the back of an ATV in Puerto Vallarta.

I live permanently in Vancouver, one of the most exciting cities in the world.

I have a full time job and want to show you how it is possible to work full time, but still get to travel. I sometimes wish that I could be a full time digital nomad (don’t we all?) but I also know that I love coming home at the end of a trip to the same comfy bed that I know every lump of, the same Fox and the Hound Disney mug for my morning coffee, and all the delights that come with being home.

So yes, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to quit your job, you can work full time and still travel!
