Always Trekking

In search of thrills - sometimes it can mean slapping rambunctious monkeys or being chased by a snow storm in the Rockies on a bike. We are trying to explore the commonly overlooked corners of the world before they are taken over by franchises, smog and chainsaws.

Motorbiking Around Coron and Busuanga – Palawan, Philippines

Traveling through Philippines was one of my favorite experiences. It is an incredible country where there is something for any traveler. I’m very saddened to see the devastation that the recent typhoon has caused to such a wonderful place. Having been in Negros months after a typhoon and an earthquake hit, I saw first hand […]

Elbowing Through the Crowd at Huangshan – Anhui, China
November 7th, 2013Adventures, Asia, China, Destinations, MountainsNatalia 3 Comments

I have been warned about hiking the most popular mountain in China on a public holiday. I chose to ignore the warnings. I chose to think that a mountain could not possibly be so packed with hikers. I was wrong. It felt like you are buying bread in 1989 Russia. It could not have been […]

Where to See Pandas in China?

Seeing giant pandas in the flesh was one of the items on my China “to do” list.  As with all other magnificent creatures I try to seek them out in the wild, but pandas are a little more elusive than Orangutans,  Proboscis monkeys and Komodo dragons.  Finding them in the wild would take a lot […]

Visiting Home – An Immigrant’s Dilemma
October 14th, 2013Destinations, Europe, RussiaNatalia 2 Comments

My family immigrated to Canada when I was just 11 years old and many ask me if I have been back to visit. I visited Russia a total of 4 times since I left and sadly I have not been back since 2007. Even though I have been travelling quite extensively over the past 6 […]

What The Hell is Numbing Spice?

As Jonathan and I walked down to the Wenshu Temple in Chengdu we saw alluring pancakes being fried on the street. Usually we steer away from street food but they looked so appealing. What the hell, let’s grab a couple! They sizzled so beautifully on the wok. I only could imagine how divine they could […]

October 7th, 2013Asia, China, DestinationsNatalia 7 Comments

The day we decided to see the Leshan Giant Buddha was the first day of the National Holidays in China. We had a rough idea of what we were getting into but we were not expecting the extent of chaos that we got. The Plan We had three days in Chengdu, the first two days […]

Climbing Mount Merapi – Java, Indonesia

The steep route up Mount Merapi was filled with a lot of hand holding. Jonathan wanted to climb Mount Merapi before we even got to Java. The kid just wants to see lava! The first day we were in Jogjakarta we ventured to the tourist office to ask if the mountain was accessible for climbers. Interestingly […]

She has been constantly travelling the world since then (slowly, but surely as she says), living like a local for […]

Yuyuan Gardens and Bazaar – Shanghai, China
September 11th, 2013Asia, China, DestinationsNatalia 0 Comments

Yuyuan Gardens is one of the most popular sights in Shanghai. Even with its premier landscaping, rock tunnels and aesthetically pleasing bridges and rooftops the sight feels uninspiring and a little pretentious. The gardens were founded in 1559 and it took 18 years to blossom into its final form. The gardens that tourists see now […]
