Planny Plan Part IV

Planny Plan Part IV

We think we might have a planny plan! While recently visiting my parents in Michigan, we spent countless hours trying to track down a winter rental, in a mountain town, for a season of backcountry snowboarding. As restless nomads, it’s hard for us to commit to...
Grizzlies, Glaciers and Gold!

Grizzlies, Glaciers and Gold!

Travelling a little later in the tourist season and post what most would consider to be the opportune weather window was a deliberate choice for us. We had wanted to enjoy the amazing palate of autumn colour generated by the foliage as Mother Nature’s clock recognises...
The cat is outta’ the bag!

The cat is outta’ the bag!

In October 2015 our travel plans changed drastically. We were stopped in our tracks. When my mother passed away unexpectedly, we inherited a burden that we never anticipated. If you haven’t had this conversation with your parents or your kids—DO IT NOW!! Managing the...

De regreso en USA

Hiking in Our Own Backyard

Hiking in Our Own Backyard

Heather As mentioned in my last post we had some troubling adjusting to life back in typical society so we decided a backpacking trip was in order.  We decided to visit Killarney Provincial Park in the near North of Ontario (yes Ontario goes so far north we have a...
Lo que nos dejó Canadá

Lo que nos dejó Canadá

((The English version will be available in a couple of days)) Aunque no estaba en nuestros planes, aunque la idea original no era atravesar Canadá, sabemos que las cosas pasan por algo y estamos felices por lo que el destino tenía preparados para nosotros porque...

Colombian prices

Not much of a budget statistics guy as sometimes makes no sense, but this time I drew up a list on Colombian prices. It’s far from complete but it gives a basic idea of what to expect, mainly food,gas and camping as we don’t spend on much more than that....
Canadá: Ulula Quebec

Canadá: Ulula Quebec

For the English version see below Nos despedimos de Ontario y nos adentramos en Quebec, la provincia más distinta a todas las demás de Canadá. En Quebec nos maravillamos con los colores del otoño. Nunca vimos una gama de colores tan amplia en un solo árbol: las hojas...

A day in the VANLIFE

We recently filmed a day in the life video, showing VanLife from sunrise to sunset. We filmed this using a borrowed smartphone and the DJI OSMO MOBILE which we were lucky enough to experiment with. A Day in the VAN LIFE was filmed in one day using the an Iphone...

The Magnetic North

The Alaska Hwy was constructed in 1942 whilst WW2 was raging in order to create a transport corridor for the movement of troops and equipment should nearby Russia or Japan decide to make any surprise moves on Alaska during the war. It connected the contiguous US to...
Medellin

Medellin

We dropped down to Medellin the second time, probably not the last one though. It’s been some time since the Medellin Cartel is defunct and Pablo Escobar is gone. The city is a tourist destination these days, safer than let’s say 20 years ago but still has...

Canadream

On Canadian soil and the Cowboy Trail led us to a great little campsite! Plenty of locals were out and about enjoying the lovely wilderness camping available which was no surprise given the scenery although the weather enroute was rather awful. Weather looking ominous...

Closeups

We had a bunch of rain lately. I mean it rained, rained and rained some more. Then the rain stopped and the sun peaked out a bit. Perfect weather for mushrooms in the pine forest and some other stuff I have no clue what it might be. Plants what I have seen only in...
CANADA: REASONS TO LINGER IN THE PRAIRIES

CANADA: REASONS TO LINGER IN THE PRAIRIES

I guess you never know how you might react to a bear walking into your path … until the day a bear walks into your path. And they said it would be so boring out here in the prairies. The mountain folk back west had nothing good to say about the prairies, after...

Bilderbuch Rio de Janeiro

„Ihr seid aus Kanada?“, fragte unser Taxifahrer mit dem schönen Namen Carlos Henrique da Silva de Paiva. „Nein, aus Deutschland …“. Schweigen. „Oh, scheiße, 7:1“, und zeigte uns die Gänsehaut auf seinem Arm. Das WM-Halbfinale, das jetzt etwas mehr als zwei Jahre...
