This week’s post is going to be a bit different than usual, as I was lucky enough to adventure to the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada with New College last week as part of Re-Orientation week!

I hope some of you were able to make it out with us, but if you couldn’t – fear not! In this post I am going to do a photo recap so you can “visit” alongside me.

A sea turtle!!! This guy was probably my favourite part of the whole aquarium visit. Well, him and the jellyfish.

I don’t know about you, but all I could think was “SO MANY NEMOS!”

One of the coolest parts of the aquarium was the tank-tunnels, which meant you could actually see the sharks swimming over your head!

Another photo from the overhead tanks – the angle was really interesting to watch the fish swim past.

Next stop was the jellyfish tank, which was breathtakingly beautiful and very calming.

I could not get enough of these colours. Jellyfish are absolutely gorgeous.

Last but not least, high-fiving a starfish!


I had so much fun visiting the aquarium with New, and I hope that through this post you felt you were right there alongside us!
