Featured Destinations


The beutiful region of Patagonia has long been one of our favourite destinations in South America. Having now had a chance to explore both the Chilean and Argentinian sides of Patagonia, we are convinced – this is a MUST-VISIT destination for any outdoor lover!

From the stunning peaks of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile to the iconic Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina and the small but mighty El Chalten with its plethora of hikes and luxury lodges – this region has something for everyone!

Our home, Canada, has been our playground for many years and we’ve been lucky enough to explore many corners of this beautiful destination.

In 2020-2022, we road-tripped across Canada in our self converted Sprinter Campervan, Benji, exploring many top destinations as well as some off-the-beaten-track regions.

But the adventures didn’t end there…

Costa Rica

Over the years, Costa Rica has become our home away from home. We visit Costa Rica multiple times a year to see family, to relax on the beaches on Guanacaste, and explore new destinations around the country. 

We’ve compiled a large collection of tips and advice for visiting this beautiful country’s top destinations and lesser-known spots.

From 2009 until 2015, Australia was our home. We lived in Brisbane and traveled extensively throughout Australia. 

Over the years, we’ve visited every state in Australia, done many epic road trips (including an 18,000 km half-lap) and ticked off a lot of iconic Australian experiences.  

Our adventures continue… We come back to Australia often to visit new destinations on a mission to see every corner of this beautiful country (we’re getting close).

Our love to Japan runs deep. It’s one of our favourite destinations in the world and one we continue to explore every chance that we get. 

From popular destinations of Tokyo and Kyoto, to off the beaten path explorations in Hokkaido, Kyushu and Gunma – you’ll find plenty of inspiration for a trip to Japan on our blog.

South Africa

Having visited South Africa 4 times, we are now convinced – it’s one of the most beautiful and diverse destinations in the world. 

From stunning Cape Town, to the charming wine lands of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, to adventures along the Garden Route, off the beaten path National Parks, and of course the wildlife mecca of Kruger – this country has something for everyone!
