About Gabby Richardson

Hi! Welcome to my travel blog “Gabby’s Treks”.

I am a proud Canadian and an avid traveller. I have recently completed my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in anthropology and minor in criminal justice and public policy at the University of Guelph. I have completed an honour’s thesis in anthropology about ayahuasca use throughout time – a project I found particularly interesting. I am currently taking a year off and pursuing my Master’s degree in fall of 2021.

I have previously written articles for Her Campus Guelph. I am currently a volunteer blog writer for the Morobe Development Foundation in Papua New Guinea. I love interesting facts and keeping up with worldwide news. I have a great interest in international development issues and charity work, as evident in my role as volunteer Resource Person for the Cameroon Association of Active Youths and the creation of my January 2020 Birthday Fundraiser.

Not only will this site reflect my career interests and passions but also have a major focus on my travel destinations, stories and advice. Some of my stand out travel experiences would be my 2019 exchange semester in Copenhagen, Denmark, backpacking around Europe with my family, participating in an archaeological dig in Zorita Castle and camping in the Sahara desert. Ometepe Island, Nicaragua is a place my family and I visit frequently.

I hope this site leaves you inspired and it fuels your wanderlust.

Hamburg, Germany – My Top 6 Recommendations

I visited the city of Hamburg in Germany for a weekend trip with a fellow gryphon and Copenhagen exchange friend Kate Trombino. We took a fairly cheap Flixbus from Copenhagen central station to Hamburg central bus station on a Friday evening in February and stayed until Monday afternoon. I think its safe to say that…

Fried Calamari Recipe

I absolutely love calamari! I figured it would be worthwhile to post a very easy homemade fried calamari recipe anyone can try at home. I made this last week and it reminded me of my trip to Split, Croatia. Ingredients: Bag of raw squid rings (frozen or fresh) *amount based on how much calamari you…
