About Pamela

Hello, my name is Pamela and I’m a traveller, writer, and photographer from Ontario in Canada; who prefers to live in Québec City. Savoir Faire Abroad is the place where I write about my travel adventures, the people I meet, the food I eat, my life, and sometimes travel tips that I learn while on the road. 

My foray in solo travel began in 1998; a proud two-week vacationer who travelled to Scotland and fell in love with the idea of seeing more of the world. In 2010 I left my career in retail management, after over 10 years of dreaming about leaving my job, and started travelling the world. Six years later, this blog is on its second name (it was originally known as SpunkyGirl Monologues). I have fallen in lust with many countries and consider places like Québec City and Bangkok ‘home‘ when I’m not residing in Ontario.

Tenerife, the largest of these beautiful islands, is the epicentre of vibrant Spanish culture and traditions, and home to Mt. Teide,
