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 and United Nations Online Volunteering Project Coordinator 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 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.

A Visit to Berlin, Germany

Berlin, Germany – a city full of rich history and vibrant German culture. I visited Berlin in July of 2019 with my friend Adrianna. It was definitely one of our favourite stops! There are so many places to visit and you could easily spend a week here. Below I have highlighted some of my favourite…

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…
