Top 10 Places and Experiences after 56 Countries

I think it’s about high time I got around to writing this one.  At this point in life I’ve now been to 56 countries spread across every continent and have gone full circle around the world.  I’ve seen a lot, experienced even more and I am so grateful for the opportunity to travel and see this amazing world of ours.  At only 24 I think I’ve seen and experienced more of this incredible planet than most people ever do in two lifetimes and I am incredibly humbled by that.  Today I wanted to take the time to sum up my top 10 experiences or places I’ve been.  These places all have something incredibly memorable to them or some meaning behind it that will always stick with me for the rest of my life.

#1 – Living in Hong Kong


The experience of living and working in Hong Kong will be forever ingrained in my mind.  it was my first time leaving Canada on something other than a family vacation and was what really opened me up to all of the amazing things this world has to offer.

I was bit by the travel bug in Hong Kong and now I want to see the entire world as a result!
