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; […]

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 […]

Epic Vancouver Island Sunset

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, […]

Caving at Horne Lake Caves

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 […]

A Visit to Canada’s Surf Playground

It’s been nice to get out and experience some more experiences again. While we try to experience more during the cold months, it isn’t always easy. And as luck would have it, this is the worst winter in BC in, like, a million years of something. But the weather was […]
