Ontario: Thunder Bay to Niagara-on-the-Lake

After an introduction to our Road Trip 2022 that said we would be driving from Vancouver across Canada, it doesn't seem right that the first location-specific post starts at about the 3,000-kilometre mark. For us, everything before then was quick family visits (Vancouver), business/medical appointments (Calgary) or ground that we'd covered before and we were... Continue Reading →

Road Trip 2022

We're back on a road adventure, this time with our sights set on the New England region of the USA for the fall colours. It's an area that we've never been to and a trip that we didn't want to do without a lot of available time given the thousands (and more thousands) of kilometres... Continue Reading →

Finally, we are off again

The world is certainly not healthy yet, but we've decided it's time to expand our nomadic borders from the two provinces in Canada that we've been pinballing around in for the last two years. On Monday, May 2, 2022, we board our first plane since being recalled from New Zealand in March 2020, and off... Continue Reading →

So That Was 2021

Ok, so we're over a month into 2022 and I'm finally getting around to summing up 2021. That's pretty indicative of my lack of inspiration to post during Covid times. This blog is supposed to be all about our nomadic lifestyle and that lifestyle has been severely curtailed for the last two years (but we... Continue Reading →

Adventuring in Metro Vancouver

We were incredibly lucky to find a two-month housesit in beautiful Vancouver, and even luckier that it turned into a four-month sit that will end early January 2021. Our comfortable home comes complete with a very cuddly cat to keep us entertained when we are home. But how have we managed to keep ourselves entertained... Continue Reading →

Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Comox/Courtenay Highlights We left the Sunshine Coast on the ferry from Powell River (Westview Terminal) to Comox (Little River Terminal). We hadn't been on a ferry of this type before, and the open front was appreciated since, during COVID, passengers were requested to stay in their vehicles. Our view of the crossing, sadly, was limited... Continue Reading →

Sunshine Coast, British Columbia

There are obvious challenges to living a nomadic life when world travel has come to a grinding halt. This is not a complaint, since complaining during a pandemic when we are healthy and always have access to safe shelter, food, and water, would be unseemly. But it is a fact that, because we don't have... Continue Reading →

Christchurch and Goodbye

Christchurch was supposed to be our last stop in New Zealand, but not for another two months. Following a two-week house sit in Christchurch, we planned a two-week loop around the central and southern parts of the South Island before completing a three-week house sit on the coast and then returning to fly out of...

Snells Beach, North Island

We were incredibly lucky to have secured a house sit in the village of Snells Beach taking care of a beautiful new home and its gardens, and a gentle border collie named Pip.
