Hello & welcome to WHOA lansi, formerly Au fil de mes balades. My name is Alanna & I am a 30-year-old (Yikes!) writer & a bit of a nerd. You can call me Lans.
Born in Vancouver, raised in Calgary, I’ve also lived in Rennes (France), Lyon (France), Victoria, & Montreal. My wonderful husband & I currently call Calgary home.
I am cheesy, loyal, independant, & most of all, passionate (passionate as in WHOA there, slow down!). I’ve been called intense, & it’s quite true: I’m earnest & embrace my interests wholeheartedly. A self-professed foodie, lover of language, & travel enthusiast, I find joy in sharing my adventures as I eat, travel, & try to find the right words to tell you about it. Sometimes I let the photos speak; I take about a million.
My escapades abroad sparked my interest in a wide variety of foods & cultures. This drives my ongoing search for delicious fare, be it at home or away. Don’t ask me for my favourite food, city, or restaurant though – there are too many possible answers!
Anyway, grab yourself a cup of coffee & let’s be friends. I’ll try not to talk your ear off.
