Take Me to the World

About

Hi, I'm Alouise. I'm from Edmonton, Canada, but I also spent time living in Ireland. My loves in no particular order are travel, theatre, musicals, writing, music, and walking in parks. I like to share these loves with you on this site.

More than that though right now I love staying at home, socially distancing as much as possible, washing my hands properly with soap for 20 seconds, not touching my face, and sneezing or coughing into a tissue. I'm trying to flatten the curve during this weird time, and make sure I don't get any vulnerable populations sick. And if I feel sick I like to call my local health care provider to find out what next steps I can take. I hope you like these things now too.
