LUCK: Right now we’re in Banff again, getting a few days skiing in before heading back to BC. Banff is continuing its trend of being the best place ever – after our first night, we went to the front desk at our hotel because our key card wasn’t working. Instead of replacing our card, they upgraded … More February ’17 Favourites
As you probably know, Lox and I are now road tripping back west, so we’re going to end up at some of the places we’ve already visited again. First on the list of repeats was Quebec City.

After spending over a week in beautiful Quebec, Lox and I headed to New Brunswick. We didn’t have much interest in it, but we wanted to get to Prince Edward Island and to get there, we needed to cross the sparsely populated NB. We only had a couple of days there which we spent chilling out in our … More Road tripping around Canada: The Maritimes

I’ve never had … More Nobody likes you when you’re 23
Whenever I told anyone that Lox & I were going to drive across Canada, every person said to get out of the prairies as soon as possible (as well as “Oh, it’ll be cold!”, as if we were unaware that Canada gets cold in the winter). Everyone had sold the “flat, boring” prairies as the … More Road tripping around Canada: The Prairies
After leaving Campbell River, we headed to Agassiz, BC, where our old flatmate from Vancouver had organised a working weekend at his family’s farm. It was really great to see our old flatmates again – even though it had only been about 2 weeks since we left – and surprisingly fun helping out with a … More Road tripping around Canada: First snow!
On November 1st, Lox and I packed all of our belongings into Cindy Lou Beluga (the name of our van), left our lovely little house in Vancouver, and started our road trip across Canada. Our plan of attack was to first go west to Vancouver Island, and then head all the way to the east coast … More Road Tripping through Canada: Vancouver Island
