AUSTRALIA

A day trip along Australia’s Great Ocean Road

I thought I had an idea of what the Great Ocean Road would be like. You know, Pinterest does a good job of telling you what to do and see, and when you travel throughout Australia you hear so many different things about the magnificent drive. "Don't miss the...

lapping Tasmania: A seven day road trip around Australia’s island state

When we first arrived in Tasmania in September, knowing that in the near future we would need to "settle down" (just a little bit), we decided to hit the road for seven nights of Tasmanian exploration before any adulting was to happen. Exploring Tassie by campervan...

exploring the Bay of Fires in Tasmania: red rocks, white sand and the greenest ocean

I had been to the Bay of Fires briefly last year. Just for a taste - a tiny treat. This year, I got to hang around and spend some time getting to know these big, red rocks. We stayed in the most unique place - a family cabin on a salt water bay. It's shallow waters...

An island off of an island: Bruny Island, Tasmania

I saw this on Pinterest - The Neck, on Bruny Island, and it immediately became a place we had to see. The good news was that we were already planning on heading down to Bruny to visit a friend who's an Oyster Farmer on the rural island. We followed the sign that...

four wheels of freedom: Vanlife in Australia

Some may think it's a trend, this #vanlife thing, but I'd beg to differ. My parents travelled around the country in a van in the 70's and hippies alike have been living the van life dream since 4 wheels could roll. The only thing that's changed is that people are...

the land of adventure tourism: Tasmania, Australia

It really is unlike any other place you've ever visited, Tasmania. I've been warned to keep it a secret - There's a balance between needing a Tourism Industry but also respecting the ample untouched beauty it hosts. Free camping, tractor traffic jams, and white sand...

exploring Tasmania: Barefoot in paradise

Have you ever locked eyes on a place from above and just known that your feet would love the ground below? That was what Tasmania was for me. It was a short flight from Melbourne across the pond to this magnificent, quiet place where hills roll, mountains stand tall...

An Australian road trip: Melbourne to Thredbo coastal drive and camping spots

There’s a feeling that I will never be able to put words to. It’s a feeling that actually makes it hard for me to write about my trip to Australia. The feeling of absolute bliss and travel wanderlust that makes you long for that moment to happen again and again, but...

CANADA

flight-seeing in British Columbia’s Sea-to-Sky corridor

Getting elevated above the mountains is quite possibly one of the best experiences to be had in the sea-to-sky region. The vast and rugged landscape is a beautiful thing witnessed on land, but from the air - it's a whole other ball game. We had the incredible...

camping by boat in Squamish’s Howe Sound

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...

10 things to try in British Columbia’s Tofino

Tofino is a majestic little surf town on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, and arguably the only "real" surf town in Canada. It's combination of bustling activity and rejuvenating ocean stillness makes it a special and unique destination for so many travelers every...

skiing “bluebird” days at Whistler Blackcomb

We have had an epic launch to our winter season in Whistler, and being able to get up and go out exploring on these mountains via two planks every day, is an extraordinary experience.

what it’s like to live a mountain life in Whistler, British Columbia

*Sigh* I live in a wonderful place. Everywhere your eyes land there are beautiful mountain cabins and festive twinkle lights. The moment you drive into this town you feel a weight off your shoulders and a breath of that fresh alpine air. I have so many favourite...

Whistler Olympic Park: A wonderland of winter activities

Thirty minutes south of Whistler Village lies an amazing little white winter wonderland in the heart of the Callaghan Valley. That place, is called Whistler Olympic Park. Whistler as most know, was host mountain resort to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and Whistler...

Hiking British Columbia’s Joffre Lakes in the snow

New years eve - a day when everyone reminisces on what the year before brought (and sometimes what it didn't bring...) and everyone resolves to make changes in the year ahead. ...But why? Why not live a life that you love all the time? A life that you don't have to...

Searching for surf in Canada at Sombrio Beach in British Columbia

If we haven't done something somewhat adventurous in a few weeks, we get an itch. If we don't scratch it, it just sits there and bugs us until we finally cave and satisfy the urge. I feel so lucky to have this guy in my life - he gets it. I sway him a lot to come...

AMERICA

A hidden gem: Southern California’s Jalama Beach

We look a risk, and we had no idea where the road would lead us - but it didn't disappoint. Adventure has a funny way about it... when you choose to have an attitude that allows for awesomeness no matter what the outcome, you're bound to find something great. We saw...

A day trip from Las Vegas to the Valley of Fire

"Red Rock Canyon," they all said. "It's close to Vegas," they added. And so we did, we Red Rock Canyoned. I had been there once before, so I knew it was spectacular, but yet the short 30 minute drive in the car and a hike/picnic had only filled up half the day of our...

24 hours of relaxation in Southern California’s Laguna Beach

It's a hard task to stop and take in every little beach town on a road trip down the Californian coast, and I often try to jam everything into one trip which can make it hard to experience all of the unique little quirks places have to offer. That being said, when...

A day trip from Las Vegas to the hottest place on earth: Death Valley, California

It wasn't even a thought in my mind, Death Valley, when we planned our little getaway to Las Vegas. I had planned to take Rob to the Grand Canyon because, well - it's the Grand Canyon. We were staying in Las Vegas though, and to get the the South Rim of the Grand...

ASIA

six days of relaxation on the Indonesian island of Java

Java, unlike its neighbour Bali, doesn’t drum to the beat of tourism. Sure, some areas are more set up for it than others, but more often than not, you’re getting a significantly more “authentic” Indonesian cultural experience. 90% of Java is Muslim, and...

four days of exploring the Indonesian island of Nusa Lembongan

A slice of Indonesian paradise awaits you just a short 45 minute boat ride away from main Bali. There you'll find two little tropical islands connected by a yellow scooter-only bridge. These beautiful and low-key islands are called Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan....

Planning for a trip to Central America’s Nicaragua: Budget, packing and preperation

So, you want to go to Central America - and yes, you should! Here's some tips and trips I used / some things I wish I knew before hand. PACKING. They aren't kidding when they say it's going to be hot. All. the. time. Lay out everything you think you want to bring and...

luxury living at Nicaragua’s Villas Playa Maderas

For our final two nights in Nicaragua, we wanted to do something special. And lucky for us - some special people were arriving that day that we could share it with. https://www.instagram.com/p/BL1wMLaj9Xh/?taken-by=emventurer It's pretty spectacular when people have...

Popoyo, Nicaragua: A slice of Central American paradise

Popoyo was on our radar from the get-go, and I can safely say it was absolutely a worthy place to go, though getting to the 3km long white sandy beach was a bit of a mission. https://www.instagram.com/p/BLtk5kQj0BF/?taken-by=emventurer To go to Popoyo, you have a few...

exploring off the beaten path in Gigante Bay, Nicaragua

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...

A dreamy stay at Hostel Clandestino in Playa Maderas, Nicaragua

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)...

tips for catching the bus from Costa Rica into Nicaragua

I wanted to write a quick post on this because I researched heaps about trying to find a bus from San Jose to Nicaragua, and I couldn't really find the answer I was looking for online before my trip. So, I am writing this post for travelers like myself. Scenario:...
