Welcome to the Urban Xenophile

My name is Jordana and I hail from the misty mountains of the Pacific West Coast of Canada. I’m a new mom, a wife to an avid tech geek and outdoor enthusiast, and whenever I carve out the time to write, a blue-eyed Australian Shepherd sleeps at my feet. I’m thrilled to have you in my little corner of the digital universe.

The Urban Xenophile was borne back in 2009, out of a need to express my love for all things travel and culture, hence the name. But I have to admit, this budding little travel blog has never quite received the love and affection it deserved. I decided that 2018 was going to be different, and so here we are, taking one last crack at it.

So, what’s a xeno-phile? It describes an individual who is interested in peoples, manners or cultures outside of their own.
