Short Bio

Growing up in small-town Western Canada, Nicole Basaraba was always skipping to a different beat. Not being a hockey fan, having no skills in skiing or snowboarding, always being cold, and having never tasted maple syrup, she is what you might call a “bad” Canadian. After studying some history in university and always dreaming of seeing Europe, Nicole moved to Brussels, Belgium in 2010 to live, work and travel of course. She soon discovered that there is more to Belgium than just its delicious chocolate and she decided to stay in Europe for a few years. She now works as a communications professional in Edmonton in print publishing and website content management and she continues to write travel articles, book reviews, and other lifestyle/culture articles about life and her experiences in Europe and Edmonton.
