Hello & Welcome to My Site
Exploring Unique Experiences Through Casual Travel
Hello, I am Lea St John an Edmonton Alberta Travel Blogger.
Originally from the East Coast, I moved to Edmonton, Alberta in 2010. Locally I explore and enjoy Edmonton & Alberta’s foods, festivals, and events with my handsome husband Jean-Claude.
I love exploring life’s vibrant experiences through travel. My passion has always been to travel and discover what makes each destination unique. This led me to get my Bachelor of Applied Management in Hospitality and Tourism.
As much as I love going to faraway destinations, it’s especially important to love where I live. Being a tourist is not something I just do on vacation, I embrace it in my city and province too. Finding new places to eat and explore keeps me feeling inspired. I think being a tourist in your own town is important and I love helping others discover their own city in a new light.

Over the years, I have worked with various historical societies, festivals, events, and attractions across Canada. I now work as a Buyer at an Industrial Construction company and fuel my passion for travel through this blog. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and write about both regular and gluten-free options at restaurants.
On Friday afternoons you will usually find me relaxing at a cafe, enjoying treats (gluten-free) and brainstorming ideas.
