As you know, last month I went to New Orleans. As I shared with you, visiting the Big Easy was a long time wish and of course I was more than excited to to. However, regardless of my expectations, what I got goes well beyond!!! This trip has made me complete my top 3 of US cities. As many, many, many people, I have SFC, NYC and now NoLa as my ultimate destinations in the US.  More »

Warning: Personal post in sight! If you don’t like this kind of post, it is time to stop. I don’t want to annoy everyone, but as I’ve been a bit absent lately, I definitely need to give you, my beloved readers, an explanation. (Un?)Fortunately this means sharing with you some pieces of my private life… this post is intended for everyone that just like me, are embarking on a path to self discovery… and for those who have found their path or those thinking about joining the club. Actually, this is for everyone icon smile The art of living... (trying to master) More »

So, it is the time to take a plane again. In this occasion I’m heading to the Big Easy! Visiting New Orleans has been a dream for a long time. The once French city seems to have so many things in common with Montreal and Quebec in general, and that goes beyond the Fleur-de-Lys. I am excited to see with my own eyes all the colour and to taste the cajun food, listen to good jazz music and just enjoy the city with all the many wonders it has to offer! So, since I will be visiting NoLa, there will be little time for blogging. In the meantime, please feel free to follow me on Instagram as I will be surely posting some images on that platform.

Gros bisous,

IMG 0165 October delights: Being grateful with life

“The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness.” — Dalai Lama

Today is Canadian thanksgiving! Ever since I started focusing in being grateful and appreciative of what I have rather than running after things I didn’t possess, my whole world changed. It feels so good to open your eyes and see the magic of life. I do not take anything for granted now, and that’s why I better enjoy my loved ones, my job and my life in general. Today is thanksgiving in Canada, and although for me everyday it is about giving thanks for all the blessings I’ve received from life, on this day I want to do it here.
Thank you for reading me, your appreciation means a lot! Thanks life for the wonderful family back in the Mexican West Coast, the extended family spread all around the world, the amazing friends here in Canada and those living across the globe, the challenging and super interesting weekday job that encourages me to be a better professional while allowing me to pay for my needs, those of my baby cat and yes, all the extra non necessary stuff.
Thanks so much!

IMG 6517 682x1024 October delights: apple picking, pumpkins and colourful leaves

I am Karla

As I just told you in my last post, October is a month bringing plenty of nice things I enjoy and call October delights. A few days into the month and I’ve already got the chance to go apple picking, pumpkin and colourful leaves observing with my friends and my nephew. It was a rather rainy and chilly day, not the best time to be searching for apples into wet trees haha. But, on the good side, we were about the only ones apple picking so the trees were all for us and a few other visitors. More »
