When the news first broke out during the Chinese Lunar New Year that there was an extremely infectious virus called Corona or Covid-19 spreading around, I wasn’t expecting this to become a global pandemic that called for a world lock-down! What I realized during this quarantine (among many other things) is how lucky we are to live in Vancouver and blessed that we are surrounded by so much beautiful nature. But what I also didn’t expect was how much I love my backyard which I have never really appreciated until now. To be honest, I was never a backyard person because I like to go out and explore but because of this quarantine, I have been to my backyard pretty much every single day and have been drawing every bit of creativity I have to bring some fun into our lives and having a picnic in the back was one of them. So I partnered up with a few BC Wineries to bring my dream of picnicking and wine tasting in my backyard to life!

Now that "back to normal life" is a slowly but surely reality, I like so many others have started to dream again about traveling! However, I know that travels will still be up in the air especially internationally; so therefore, I suggest a solution that is probably very plausible in the near future and that is to rediscover your city. What better way to support local during this time than with a road trip to the local resorts, a staycation at your favouirite hotel or a cottage getaway in nearby islands or lake. I think we don't always have to go searching for the exotic locations because wherever you live there is beauty to be seen and experienced either for the first time or again. This brings me to Monos, a meticulously designed premium luggage brand founded here in Vancouver that creates beautiful yet functional pieces that will ease your transition back to wander-lusting hopefully soon.
