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.

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 Olympic Park was host to the nordic events of the games. Its…

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 resolve to change every…

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.

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.

So naturally, our plan was to stay…

i’m a jerk | breaking free & being sentimental

Perhaps I’m just overly sentimental, but when I take a few minutes to scroll through old photos online, I can’t help but be flooded with memories and thoughts about each of those sweet, special moments.

Pacific North-West vibes: A weekend road trip in Oregon

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…

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 sharing about it – and…

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 beaches sprawling for kilometres with not a footprint laid into…

living in Whistler: activities for weekend warriors

You’ve got to love living in a place where you can roll out of bed, stumble your way to the front door and drive a quick few minutes to the base of a world class mountain. Lucky for me, this is how I get to start most of my weekends in winter. The great thing…
