We live for adventure. There’s nowhere else we’d rather be than exploring somewhere new. In particular, we love the great outdoors.
Our happy place is on a lake, up a mountain, by the ocean….anywhere and everywhere outdoors, with a preference for beyond the beaten path destinations.
We usually travel in a converted adventure van (self built) so even when not hiking, paddling or snowshoeing, you’ll still find us outside.
This page is the gateway to all of our adventure related content from camping and climbing to hiking and vanlife. For outdoor gear recommendations, head to our shop.
Some of our favourite adventures (so far) have included:
Hiking in the stunning Kananaskis Valley, Alberta
Paragliding in Revelstoke, British Columbia
Discovering 500 million year old fossils in Yoho National Park, BC
Hiking to Canada’s highest waterfall
Kayaking in Desolation Sound, British Columbia
Driving to the Arctic Circle and beyond
Watching the sun rise on Tin Hat Mountain (see below)
Adventure can be for everyone
Before moving to British Columbia in 2011, we had very little outdoor adventure experience. We didn’t know gaiters from giardia.
It’s been a steep learning curve with many firsts over the years (first time on a snowboard! first time camping! first multi-day hike!)
Some lessons have been harder to learn while others were definitely much more fun.
Never would I have guessed a decade ago that we would both become managers of an outdoor gear store and, eventually, full-time adventure travel bloggers.
I believe that this perspective enables us to inspire, encourage and inform both new and more experienced outdoor adventurers.

This is Hanna the Savana, our third DIY converted campervan. Purchased in 2017, Hanna was our home-on-wheels for over two years of full time travel.
She is getting a bit of a break now but remains an important part of our adventure lifestyle. You can read more about Hanna’s conversion over on the dedicated vanlife page
