The Best Kept Secret – Red Mountain, BC

The town of Rossland isn’t close to the TransCanada. In fact, it’s even a ways off the secondary Crowsnest highway. It’s not close to a major population center, nor is it easily accessed by air. What all this means is that even during the peak Christmas season, you can often find yourself skiing in the […]

Mountain Biking at Slick Rock – Moab, Utah
January 11th, 2017Adventures, Cycling, Destinations, Mountains, USNatalia 0 Comments

I am not a good rider. I do all of my riding in the somewhat flat trails of Southern Ontario, but anything outside my comfort zone leads me to literal tears. That is what happened at Moab. With it’s rocky, barren Star Trek like terrain, Slick Rock is the epitome of “outside the comfort zone”. […]

Motorcycling in Colorado, Utah and Arizona

During the summer, Jonathan and his buddy rode their motorbikes from Toronto to Colorado, Utah and Arizona. The plan was to ride as fast they could (within legal limits) to Colorado and then explore Colorado, Utah and Arizona. I flew to Denver and met the guys in Boulder. There was no way I was going […]

Destination Wedding on a Budget

What’s the average cost of a wedding nowadays? Judging by hearsay evidence and online articles, couples are now spending $30,000 on one day of festivities. Apparently everyone getting married is super rich or doesn’t mind massive debt. Do wedding venues offer financing? Anyway, we’re not rich, nor do we care about weddings that much, so […]

Cycling Across Europe

It’s an understatement to say that I’ve been absent from my blog lately. I’m too embarrassed to even look when I wrote my last blog post. A lot of things have happened since the blog has been updated. I left China, breathed fresh air in Canada, cycled from London to Rome, started a new job […]

New Cycling Adventure

It’s been a “fun” few weeks. A few not-so-fun cycling adventures in China made us decide that our initial plans to cycle Shanghai to Hanoi were dusted. To reward ourselves for living in China for 9 months we decided to ride our bikes in a place where food is fucking delicious, where one can camp […]

Living the Dream – Diving in Raja Ampat, Papua, Indonesia

Getting a chance to dive in Raja Ampat is probably on every diver’s dream list. Raja Ampat is an area that is jammed full of life partly due to its remote location making it harder for commercial fishing and an onslaught of eco-tourists. You can see this as soon as you go underwater. The visibility isn’t […]

Living to Die – Tana Toraja, Sulawesi, Indonesia

Lying in the hilly landscape of South Sulawesi, Tana Toraja is a place where the dead receive a send off that would make the Royal family jealous. Families spend their days preparing for funeral ceremonies, all in hopes that their children will execute a proper send off for them. Funerals take months of preparations. Motorbiking […]

Hati! Hati! – Indonesia Trip Highlights

Recently Jonathan and I came back from a three and a half week whirlwind trip across Indonesia. We spent way too much money and too many nights on the move.  We managed to cross Sulawesi completely on land and water from Makassar to Manado. Travelling over 1200km in less than two weeks took a toll […]

Climbing the Great Wall of China – Jiankou to Mutianyu, China

Climbing the Great Wall of China was never high on my list of things to see. Besides Tibet there are very few sights that I get excited about in China and even Tibet has been slipping. In fact, China as a whole has been slipping but more on that later. Anyway, in my mind the […]
