Welcome to Taylor’s Tracks, a travel, personal development, spirituality and yoga blog dedicated to helping you live your best damn life every day.
I believe that a happy life is not one that you want to escape from, a happy life is one that you use travel as a way to add experience to your life.
I believe that a happy life is one where you grow, so learning more about yourself through personal development and reflection is essential.
I believe that a happy life is enhanced when you connect deeply to yourself, others and a higher power, thus spirituality is important.
I believe that a happy life is one where you love yourself and your body. Yoga helps you do both and more.
Travel, personal development, spirituality and yoga all have the power to completely transform your life, and when you combine all four? Well, what an incredible life that is!
This is what Taylor’s Tracks and the Happy Tracks podcast are dedicated to. To the practices that empower and inspire you to grow, connect and feel so freakin’ good.
What you’ll find on this blog
Taylor’s Tracks originally started out as a purely travel blog in 2015, detailing my travels living and travelling around the world until I had my spiritual awakening that invited me to branch out into personal development and spirituality. When I did my yoga teacher training is when I truly began to love myself and my body. I believe that all these things go hand in hand with travel.
On Taylor’s Tracks you’ll find a mix of articles that will support you whether you’re abroad or at home, including:
- Destination guides
- Travel tips
- Travel resources
- Personal travel stories
- Yoga guides & tips
- Personal development & spiritual practices

This blog will take you on a journey to all corners of the globe as well as into the deepest corners of yourself, giving you practical tips and tricks to help you elevate your life to new highs.
About my journey
I began travelling long-term in 2014, beginning with a 52-day group trip followed by my own solo travels through Europe. I got addicted to travel and didn’t want to stay at home in Canada.
Within a few months of coming back from that Europe trip which I did just after graduating from college (where I studied film and media production), I gave up looking for jobs in the film industry, moved home to save money and then headed off on a trip around Canada before landing in Thailand to teach English abroad.
A short 3 months later I was back home in Canada where I prepared for my next trip – back to Southeast Asia for 4 months.
I’ve been spending 2-5 months abroad and then going back to Canada for a month or two at a time since 2015, building this travel blog in the process which became my full-time job, fully funding all of my travels.
During those years I spent time living in Australia and mostly Bali, one of my favourite places in the world.
In 2018 I began to feel unfulfilled with my travel lifestyle, getting burnt out from working full-time along with travelling full-time, moving to a new hostel every few nights. I felt lost but continued travelling, unsure of what move to make next.
Then in 2019 I had what I call my spiritual awakening, when I began to take a deeper look at my life, the reasons behind why I was doing what I was doing and most importantly, began to understand how I was somehow unhappy despite living what many call the dream life.
I radically changed my way of thinking through mindset, got more in touch with my body through yoga (becoming a yoga teacher in the process) and nutrition, reconnected to my intuition and became so much freakin’ happier.
Now I’m passing those tools onto you through this blog and my podcast, The Happy Tracks Podcast.
I hope you know that you’re deserving of a truly amazing life full of passion, purpose, and a life that you’re excited to wake up for every damn day, no matter where you are.
Join me on this journey we call life, learn how you can make it the best it can be and live a life that’s full of happiness.
