howe sound, british columbia | camping by boat

It was last minute and it was awesome, the decision to take a Harry’s little boat into Howe Sound for a night of camping and celebrating Canada’s 150th Birthday. Giddy from joy (and the water splashing onto our faces from the choppy water) my friend Capri and I were happy to see each other for…

gigante bay, nicaragua | off the beaten path

We picked this spot because it’s right next to the legendary Nicaraguan wave at the beach called Playa Colorados. Staying at that beach is tricky – it’s basically populated by wealthy Americans and the resort inside is gated in and labelled with “PRIVATE” and “EXCLUSIVE” everywhere you look. So naturally, our plan was to stay…

playa maderas, nicaragua | home sweet hostel

Once we finally made it to Playa Maderas, we were slightly delirious. Mostly without a nights sleep, a search for a mysterious bus stop and a hectic border crossing later, we were just happy to lay our heads somewhere. (See post about crossing the Cost/Nica border) Our taxi took us from San Juan Del Sur…

I was lucky enough to have the experience of…

marble canyon, british columbia| blues, greens & microbialites

We were at Birkenhead Lake on one of the (hard-to-come-by) summer days we’ve had, and a man and his son pulled up to the dock with an interesting sail boat. It caught our eye and so we started chatting. After sharing about spots we loved in B.C, I asked him what his favourite place was,…

lions bay, british columbia | cliff jumping along the sea-to-sky

The common thought this Summer – “is it really July? I could have sworn it’s January.” We had an epic winter – amazing snow and weather, and now we’re mid-July wondering if we’re going to see any of those sparkly summer days we all fell in love in Whistler. But until we do, we’re making…

sunshine coast, british columbia | pace of life perfection

It’s not a far jaunt from Whistler to the Sunshine Coast, but when you’re there, you feel like you’re a world away. The pace of life resembles Island life, and sure – you take a ferry to get there, but you’re actually not on an island at all… You’re just on a secluded section on…
