About Us

We are   Oksana & Max,
An ordinary couple with an extraordinary lifestyle!

In 2015, we quit our jobs, sold our possessions and left the 9-5 life behind to embark on the biggest adventure of our lives. We’ve been traveling full time since!  

These days, we split our time between Canada, Australia, Costa Rica and elsewhere in the world. Check out our current adventure below! 


On The Road In Australia​

Grounded by the global pandemic, we put our international travels on hold and set off on a half lap of Australia in our self-built 4×4 Land Cruiser Troopy Camper, Tilly.

We left Brisbane in March 2021 and are following the itinerary below for the next 6 months!

After spending 2020 living in our self converted Sprinter van in Canada, we fell in love with the freedom of the van life lifestyle and decided to build another van suitable for a rugged adventure around Australia. 

Meet our home on wheels Tilly, a 2006 Land Cruiser HiTop Troopy that we converted into a fully self-contained campervan in just 3 weeks!

In 2020, when COVID hit and our international adventures came to a halt, we returned back to Canada and spent 3 months building a home….in a van.

Meet Benjamin Green (Benji), our 170 WB 2008 Dodge Sprinter. It’s time to open our doors and invite you in for a little tour.

Our Hotel

Drift Away Eco Lodge

In 2018, we took our passion for sustainable travel to another level! We purchased an old hotel in Costa Rica and renovated it into a beautiful eco-lodge! 

The lodge, located in Playa Avellanas in Guanacaste province offers guests simple luxuries while following many of our own sustainable practices.
