Wayfarer: Elise Newman

eliseIt’s time for another co-worker! Within the company that I work for there’s a work abroad program that helps students and youth obtain international work visas and provides support once they’re abroad. Elise works for this arm of the company, and this is how I became lucky enough to have this quirky chick in my life. Continue reading

Wayfarer: Lindsay Siple

lindsay2Growing up, I knew Lindsay as Lindsay Davies, not Mrs. Siple. We went to the same elementary and high schools, played on the same sports teams (except in high school because I got lazy), attended the same sleepovers and birthday parties, and were obsessed with the same boy bands.  Continue reading

Wayfarer: Danielle Bruce

danielle1I have another co-worker for you all to meet. I’m expanding my work reach with Danielle, however, as she’s the first Wayfarer to be featured who hails from the Prairies, and the first colleague of mine from outside Ontario. Continue reading

Wayfarer: Elke Hinson

elke2I first met Elke a few years ago at a holiday work party. We both worked for the same company but out of different Toronto offices. Now, Elke and I share the same office space and at least once a day she makes me laugh with her sharp quips and exciting stories. Continue reading

Wayfarer: Some Fellow Pilgrims

Alto de PerdonThis week’s Fellow Wayfarers is going to be a little different. Instead of profiling a specific individual that I know, I thought I’d gather a collection of videos I found on the Camino de Santiago and share the views of other pilgrims. Continue reading

Wayfarer: Me!

amI’ve officially run out of Wayfarers to profile on this blog, so while I gather some more exciting traveller’s stories to share I thought I’d act as my own stand-in in the interim and answer the same questions I’ve been posing to others all these months. Continue reading

Wayfarer: Sarah McMullen

sarahmcI’ve known Sarah in one way or another for the majority of my life. Our elementary schools always played against each other in sports, so we were constantly seeing each other growing up. Then when high school came, Sarah and I became proper friends once we started to share classes. Now as adults, we swap travel stories.

Wayfarer: Tania Bloomfield

TaniaThis is a first for Fellow Wayfarers — I’m profiling one of the teachers from my high school. I unfortunately never had the chance of being taught by Ms. Bloomfield (it still feels wrong to call her by her first name, despite being out of high school for ten years), but I’ve always known about her travels. Continue reading

Wayfarer: Julie Gough

jgI think I’m just going to admit defeat now — I’ve come to terms with the fact that the majority of my Wayfarers are coworkers. I can’t help it, though. I’m surrounded by people who have been EVERYWHERE — I’m sure between the lot of them we can probably cover a good portion of the world. Continue reading

Wayfarer: Daniel Gray

DanI first met Danny way back when we were fourteen and starting grade nine at the same high school. Our circles of friends often intersected, but in our adult years we lost touch for a bit. Last summer, when the idea first came to me to feature Wayfarers on this blog, Danny immediately came to mind because of all the awesome travel pictures he was being tagged in on Facebook. He’s become quite the traveller. Continue reading
