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 →

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 →

Calgary Urban Murals

Though we have appreciated street art around the world, we were unaware of the BUMP (Beltline Urban Murals Project) and the growing collection of murals in inner-city Calgary. 2020 was the fourth year for the BUMP Festival, which took place in the month of August. The festival included the painting of new murals as well... 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 →

Hawai’i: What a stopover!

When we were booking flights out of Vancouver for our trip to New Zealand we found that almost all of the flights went via Hawai'i. Having never been to Hawai'i (possibly the only West Coast Canadians who haven't), this seemed like a perfect time to build in a stopover. We had grand plans for a... Continue Reading →

Puerto Vallarta

Our final stop in our cross-country Mexico trip was Puerto Vallarta (PV), on the West Coast. We took a bus for the 5-hour trip from Guadalajara, and then a 30-minute Uber to get to our hotel right in town. We chose to stay downtown near the Zona Romantica so we could walk to almost everything... Continue Reading →
