These Are a Few of my Favorite Things - Paul's Picks of 2019
Paul Fraser

As we finish off the year, I thought I would share some of my favourite things I listened to, watched, read and ranked as I travelled throughout the year. Maybe there is something on this list you never heard or thought of. Maybe it’s something you might look into more, or straight-up disagree with (probably my Canadian airport rankings)!

I can’t believe this year is almost done! Time goes way too fast when you’re having fun!
