Driving Across Canada with an Infant
January 25th, 2017Canada, DestinationsNatalia 0 Comments

We finally did it. We packed all our of belongings into a U-Haul and hit the road. A decade in the making, we were moving to Vancouver. A week long road trip covering over 4000km! How exciting. There was only one thorn in our side. It was a 2.5 month old infant. Most people don’t […]

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 […]

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 […]

August Adventures at Killbear Provincial Park – Ontario, Canada

July 2013 wasn’t a warm one for Southern Ontario and Lake Huron/Georgian Bay surrounding Killbear Provincial Park did not warm up at all. Aside from the cold water we had great weather and we found plenty of things to do while keeping dry. We had about 25 people booked for a group campsite which is much better […]

Mountain biking in Toronto – Don Valley Video

  I spent the better part of the past 12 years riding on my mountain bike in the Don Valley. I was  unhappy with the Don Valley mountain biking videos I’ve seen on YouTube so I set out to make my own. The Don Valley trails are built by other riding aficionados and more recently […]

Commuting on Two Wheels – Toronto vs Busan

Summer is upon us yet again and with its return I am reminded of last summer and the fun I had exploring various countries by motorbike, bicycle and by foot. Although I wish I could perpetually travel I also have other things I want to do which keep me working. Ultimate Frisbee and mountain biking in the Don […]

It’s impossible to plan for every possible mechanical and weather related events you might encounter but considering the following will go a long way.     Daily Commutes: I rarely leave my house without the following […]

How to Enjoy a Snowstorm in Toronto
February 16th, 2013Adventures, Canada, Destinations, Ontario, skiingJonathan 1 Comments

Tobogganing is fun but we’ve all been there and done that, but how can you take it to the next level.  I’ve always wanted to strap on my skis and play around on a jump all day without having to drive out to a ski hill (and pay). Enter the super winter storm “Nemo”. I […]

How to Survive Bad Ski Conditions – Mont Tremblant, Quebec
February 10th, 2013Adventures, Canada, Destinations, Quebec, skiingNatalia 2 Comments

Winter is almost over, so I feel it is time to wrap up our skiing blog series. Today, I want to pay an ode to Mont Tremblant Quebec. Whatever Quebec tourism may say, skiing in Quebec is often not very good. It’s among the best you can get within driving distance of Toronto, but it’s still 8 […]
