The Long Road Back

Pennsylvania We crossed through Pennsylvania on our way north to Corning, New York (see New Jersey and New York), and then returned south to Pennsylvania to continue our journey west. Finally, we were immersed in autumn colours. Susquehanna River: Wyalusing Rocks Overlook We stayed one night at Ives Run campground in the Tioga-Hammond Lakes Recreation Area.... Continue Reading →

New Jersey and New York

We didn't want to leave Vermont since the forests had not yet reached their autumn colour peak, but we had booked a housesit in New Jersey, so leave we did. Once we got adjusted to leaving, we started looking forward to what was next. Our New Jersey housesit homeowner had suggested stopping at Storm King... Continue Reading →

Vermont & New Hampshire: Across the Top

Cathedral Ledge After exploring the coast of Maine, it was time to turn inland to visit the forests and mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont. We drove across Maine into the White Mountains and the Cathedral Ledge State Park in New Hampshire. Cathedral Ledge Scenic Lookout offered gorgeous views of the valley, lakes, and across...

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 →
