The Reply

Canadian magazine providing meaningful and lasting commentary on social issues faced by Millennials. []

The Reply ( is a Canadian lifestyle magazine. We strive to provide meaningful and lasting commentary on social issues faced by Millennials and Gen-Y.

The world “millennial” has been so stereotyped in the media, most of us cringe at the label. But at The Reply, we believe it should be worn with pride. After all, millennials are doing amazing things. We’re changing the way people work, the way people live; we’re changing the way people look at the world.

We want to change the way the world sees millennials, and the way we look inward at ourselves.

We’re featuring real stories about millennials who are overcoming challenges in their careers, relationships and personal lives. Whether you’re looking for advice on paying off student loans, looking to follow your passion in your career or even searching for tips for first dates, we are your go-to resource.

Why Travelling is Not Vacationing

Vacationing, for me, is about the destination. It's a place you go, where you can put your feet up for a few days or weeks. Travelling, on the other hand, is about the journey. It often means setting off without a plan and the ability to enjoy the unexpected - like going three weeks without washing your clothes. When you decide to travel, you pack up your life and take it on the road with you.
