This month I’m sharing the story of Jess, a Canadian expat living in Poland; read on for some of her expat wisdom!

As some of you may know, this month is the Dubai Fitness Challenge! This is when people all over Dubai are encouraged to do 30 mins of exercise for 30 days to promote a healthy lifestyle. There are lots of really interesting fitness activities being offered, from running down Sheikh Zayed Road to yoga lessons on the beach, and I think it’s a great opportunity to get out and active! I find it hard to motivate myself to exercise this time of year, so having a city full of people with the same fitness goal as myself is a great help. In this post, I wanted to share 10 of my top fitness activities in Dubai that you could try this month!

In a couple of weeks I’m heading back to school for the last time – wow that sounds weird to say. I’m going to be a high school senior this year, and after spending fourteen years in school, I think I have some worthwhile advice to share with you.

I’m a little bit of a nerd and I actually really like school, but that doesn’t stop me from disliking the back to school season. I hate seeing the summer come to an end and I don’t like saying goodbye to family who I don’t see during the school year. However, once the school year is in full swing, I end up loving it. So, in this post, I want to share some of my top tips on how to make the back to school season a little less sad, and a tad more enjoyable.

Also, before I get into the rest of this post I wanted to share a few announcements. Even if you are not a student heading back to school, this post will still be relevant for you! I share lots of organizational techniques here and I even created a free day planner which you can download at the end of this post. Also, starting from next week, I’m moving away from the boring ‘back to school’ content and taking a different approach to it in an exciting and highly relevant way, as the summer comes to an end and we all head back to school/work; so keep your eyes peeled for that! So, without further ado, here’s the back to school advice I’ve got for you!

I was brainstorming ideas on how to make sustainability accessible to you guys in a fun way, not something you see all the time, and it hit me! Why don’t I link sustainability to something I already write about a lot: travel! My travel posts are some of my most popular posts, and while I won’t pretend to be a perfect human, whenever I’m on a trip I always make a conscious effort to make environmentally cautious decisions. I know as well as you guys that it can be really hard to be sustainable while on vacation, you’re not in your home and you don’t have access to the resources that you usually do, but that is why I want to create these travel guides for you: to make sustainable travel a little more accessible.

Something I love about being an expat is the global community we have. We can hear and connect with people from all across the world, which I think is extremely important! I believe that with this privilege, comes responsibility; a responsibility to speak up about what we believe in and spread awareness about important issues.
