Our Trip to Panama!

We decided to take advantage of the recent need to do a visa run and visit Central America, a part of the world that had always caught our attention but we hadn't yet made it to. Within Central America, we were drawn to Panama as we had heard great reviews and wanted to scope it out as a potential place to live in the future. After arriving in Panama City, we went straight to the domestic airport to catch a flight to Bocas del Toro, a popular backpacker destination. We managed to stay away...


How to Visit Iceland: Tips and Tricks from Yvette & James

Yvette and James recently spent ten days in beautiful Iceland during the winter, and were able to take in some fabulous sites and experience some of the traditional culture.

Day to Day as a Long-term Traveler with Shalini Kulkarni

This week we catch up with our intern Shalini Kulkarni, who has been on the road backpacking in South America since July of 2017.

Paring down an initially ambitious travel plan, Shalini landed in Cartagena and has been having a great time learning the travel ropes (and Spanish!) and getting comfortable in...


Capturing Moments and Giving Back with Jen Loong of Wandersnap

Jen Loong is the creator of the Wandersnap, an online service that allows people in a location to connect with local photographers for everyday and event photos. She traveled a lot with her family growing up, which helped fuel her love for travel and led her to accepting a job in Shanghai soon after she graduated from university.

Being Away From Home During the Holidays

Ho ho ho happy holidays! It's that time of year again, and on this episode of the podcast, we're talking about being away from home during the holiday season! Christmas and the holidays are often a time where people either choose to go home or postpone a trip because they feel like they need to go home or because they have pressure from family and friends. We used to always prioritize going home for Christmas, but this year will be our 4th year away from home and we have found some amazing...


Balancing Work With Travel

Like our travel style, our workload has been evolving throughout the years, and we've had different levels of work-based responsibilities during the long term trips we've taken. During our last trip to Asia, we experimented with different working styles (e.g. coworking spaces and working from home) and time spent in one place and noticed the effect on our productivity. We noticed (unsurprisingly!) that we seemed to get the most done when we were based out of one place for a while, and took...

Our Top Ten Favourite Cities

After you've been traveling for a while and gotten a number of great destinations under your belt, it's always nice to look back and reflect on which of the places you really enjoyed and why. Whether it's the people, the weather, the food, or the activities in a locale, there are so many reasons you can really enjoy your travel destination, and often these vary from person to person. Cities, in particular, can be a subjective experience based on what you get up to, who you meet and where...

Hiking the West Coast Trail

This past September Amanda hiked The West Coast Trail on Vancouver Island with her 2 friends, Steph & Yvette. On this episode of the podcast, they take you on their 7 day, 6 night adventure through the challenging 75km trek that is the West Coast Trail. The WCT is probably the most popular multi-day hiking trip to do in Canada, and you have to book your permits well in advance because the trail is only open from June-September, so Amanda's trip was planned way back in January. Amanda,...

First Impressions of Mexico City

Estamos en Mexico City! Although we weren't quite sure to expect on arriving, our first few days have been great. From our smooth arrival at the airport, our AirBnb exceeding our expectations, indulging in fantastic food, and a great new coworking space, we have really been enjoying ourselves. We've had a few (pleasant) surprises, like noticing how organized the traffic seems in comparison to Asia, and finding a great grocery store that is helping to make the city feel like home. We're...


Life Update: Vamos a Mexico

We've always wanted to live longer term in a Spanish speaking country, so after a busy summer traveling across Canada and the United States, we are looking forward to staying true to our nomadic roots and heading to Mexico City this Thursday!
