hwy 99 > whistler to marble canyon, british columbia

I was so excited to meet Rob’s best friend from childhood, and his rad girlfriend Amelia. I knew I would like them, but seriously, they were the coolest people ever… and hanging out with them made ME feel like I had been their friend for forever too. And that’s a wicked feeling. I love when…

russet lake, british columbia | finally, we meet

Basically every time something really cool happens, it happens spontaneously. Typically, I’m a planner – I like to know when I’m doing something and how I’m going to do it so I can have something really epic to look forward to. I always knew that I wanted to hike to Russet Lake. A doozie in…

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,…

the best lakes and rivers to explore in Whistler, British Columbia

Sure, Whistler is known for it’s iconic ski hill and winter vibes, but let me tell you – summer is where it is AT. There’s a short shoulder season between Winter and summer that runs through April and May – and it’s really neat because there’s still skiing available in the alpine, but the lakes…

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…

a weekend in oregon | those PNW vibes

Once in a while I get this itch to go somewhere. Not in a week from that moment, not in a month, but right then. It seems completely irrational because I live in the greatest place ever – but I love the feeling of being on a highway, the sun going down and waking up…

bay of fires, tasmania | red rocks & 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…

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 said “Adventure Bay,” and…

#VANLIFE in australia | 4 wheels of freedom

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 sharing about it – and…
