Always Trekking

In search of thrills - sometimes it can mean slapping rambunctious monkeys or being chased by a snow storm in the Rockies on a bike. We are trying to explore the commonly overlooked corners of the world before they are taken over by franchises, smog and chainsaws.

Homemade Pizza
March 14th, 2013Food, InterestsNatalia 0 Comments

I love making homemade pizza from scratch. Making the dough is part of the fun and if I buy pre-made dough I might as well order from Pizza Hut. When I make pizza it’s like a little celebration, I have to plan in advance and get into the pizza making mindset. I won’t tell you […]

An Abandoned Apartment Complex – Eonyang, Korea

On the way back to Busan from Gyeongju from an Ultimate tournament, Jonathan noticed that the typical apartment complex in the Suburbs of Ulsan looked a little bit strange, a little bit abandoned. As we  drove passed it another time we decided that we would come back and explore it sometime. We had heard of an abandoned amusement park […]

Diving in Sipadan Island Park – Sabah, Malaysia

When we did research on Borneo I had no idea how popular Sipadan Island was. Lonely Planet informed me that it was THE place to dive on the orangutan’s home turf. Naturally, we made sure to make a little pit stop at Sipadan Island Park. There’s a lot of say about the administrative side of getting […]

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 […]

The UAE Experience – Battered Suitcases
February 13th, 2013Guest Post, InterestsNatalia 5 Comments

Jill is the mind behind a great blog Battered Suitcases. After University she spent a some time in the United Arab Emirates teaching. Having taught in a foreign country I was curious to learn about her experience teaching in the middle East.  I know that many certified teachers debate about going to UAE, so Jill […]

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 […]

My Canada is a Winter Paradise – Whistler Blackcomb

I was recently tagged by Karin from K and K Adventures  to write about what is “My Canada”. Since we are halfway through winter I want to explore what one might do in Canada when it is -15 degrees outside.  I am also passing on the torch to Meredith Bratland, Always Twirling and a fellow Russian emigre Maria to […]

Ski the 2nd Highest Vertical in the World – Zermatt, Switzerland

When Jonathan brought me to ski in Zermatt Switzerland I had no idea that we would ski the whole day around the Toblerone. Excuse my ignorance, but until that day I had no idea that Matterhorn was the logo of Toblerone and that it is located in Zermatt. Cars are not allowed in the Zermatt ski […]

The Korean Experience – That Backpacker
January 27th, 2013Asia, Destinations, Guest Post, Interests, KoreaNatalia 7 Comments

Why did you decide to come to Korea to teach English? Like most university graduates fresh out of school, work prospects in Canada didn’t seem very promising. I had been toying with the idea of teaching English abroad since my second year of university, and after a year of fruitless job-hunting in the city, I […]

The Failed Motorbike Journey – Jinju Lantern Festival

The story begins with an ambitious plan. It was a Friday afternoon and Natalia had to work Saturday morning. The Jinju Lantern Festival was in full swing and we didn’t want to miss it. It was only a journey of 120km from Busan and thus we thought we could head there after school and make […]
