I’ve been flying a lot recently, mostly within North America with a sprinkle of oceanic flights here and there. I mainly fly solo, but on a recent work trip my wife was able to join me, and when that happens we like to make the best of things. And by […]

Arizona – The State of Endless Life Experiences!
The Grand Canyon has always been a place that I’ve wanted to see. Just saying ‘The Grand Canyon’ gives me a warm-n-fuzzy feeling. And now I can finally say I’ve experienced The Grand Canyon, but in visiting Arizona I realized it’s a state of endless life experiences! Okay, let’s start […]
Making Predictions a Reality in Europe
Europe was never really on my bucket list. Actually, I don’t even have a bucket list. Sometimes I do something then think to myself “hmm, that should’ve been on some sort of list of things I’d like to do before I die”. And oddly enough, the cover of my book; […]
The Yellow Vest Protests Provide a Totally Unique French Experience!
Have you ever felt that you’ve been wronged in a big way? I mean, not like you bought something for $50 and 32 days later it was on sale for 77% off the price you paid. More like something that goes against your entire value system — like someone decided […]
Even Busy Bees Stop to Smell the Roses
Do you travel for work? When you do, do you get a chance to visit some of the attractions or dine out at the local favourites? It’s surprising that not everyone thinks to do things like this, but it’s important to do, especially if you travel for a living. I’ve […]
A Skookum Experience on BC’s Sunshine Coast!
This past weekend we had a little less conversation a little more action (please). As mentioned in a previous post, we typically plan vacations, but not all aspects. And recently, we decided to go on a spur of the moment weekend trip to BC’s Sunshine Coast, planning only our hotel and […]
Does a Minimalist Lifestyle Require Planning?
Here we go again, preparing for another BC adventure as we set out for the Sunshine Coast this weekend. It was a spur of the moment decision and wasn’t planned at all – something we do a lot more lately than we ever used to. Aside from planning our accommodations, […]
Is a Nomadic Lifestyle Better than a Stationary Lifestyle?
I wouldn’t go as far as to say we’re nomads, although we do live a bit of a nomadic lifestyle. We don’t exactly have a “permanent” address, and even when we do it’s definitely temporary. In the past three years the longest we’ll have lived in one dwelling is 5 […]
An Epic Vancouver Island Sunset in Three Different Towns!
Evidently, March isn’t supposed to be the best time of year to visit Vancouver Island — at least that’s what we were told. When we mentioned we were going to spend a week there some friends asked; “why”. Well here’s why; We’ve never been there, we wanted to experience something new, […]
Did You Know Vancouver Island is a Giant Piece of Swiss Cheese?
I’ve experienced a lot in my life, granted, not as much as many other people, but I’d like to think I’ve had some good times and fun experiences. After surfing for the first, second, and even third time, I never came out of the water thinking; OMFG, that was so […]
