About Us

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

We are inspired by the world, fueled by curiosity, a sense of adventure, and a desire to make a positive impact on the destinations and communities we visit.

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!

Today, we split our time between Australia, our tiny home on wheels in Canada,  and our favourite holiday destination –  Costa Rica!

Van Life

In 2020, when international travel came to a halt, we bought a used cargo van in Canada and converted it into a luxury tiny home on wheels suitable for full-time van life!

Today, our 70 sq ft Sprinter van, Benji, is our home and our gateway to exploring our own backyard…near and far!

After arriving in Australia and spending 2 weeks in hotel quarantine in Sydney, we finally got our hands on our next exciting project.

YES, you guessed it right, we bought ANOTHER VAN – but wait till you see it – our new baby is NOT what you expected!

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.
