About us

About

I’m a twenty-something South African, living in Alberta, Canada with her husband, and travelling the world with every spare penny and free-time we have. He’s a doctor and I’m a lawyer, but it often feels like we are full-time travellers! (Or maybe we just wish we were?). If you’d like to read more about us, check our blog story here.

Why did we start this blog?

I wanted a space to be able to document the amazing places we visit while traveling the globe. With this blog, we aim to share all our experiences, whether it be the travel troubles we all run into or a once-in-a-lifetime-experience that we think everyone should try.

What are we going to blog about?

You’ll find mostly travel articles based on all our adventures to inspire you on your next trip. While we travel, we will explore the trendiest hotels, the best restaurants and the independent coffee shops we can find to share with you on your future travels. We’re absolute foodies and coffee snobs, no doubt about it. So, if you enjoy researching the latest foodie and coffee spots at your next destination, you might enjoy following us.

You wouldn’t call us budget travellers, we enjoy the trendier spots which usually come with a higher price tag. However, we do love a bargain so we jump at specials when we can. We’ll definitely share how we enjoy the finer things at a more reasonable rate!

When we aren’t travelling the rest of the world, we also act a bit like tourists in our “own” city, Edmonton. We’re always trying something new and our weekends are jam-packed with activities so be sure to follow along on Insta-stories to see what we get up to. If you’re in Edmonton – come say hi! We’re new here and always willing to chat! Check out all the blog posts on Edmonton here.

SO, in a nutshell, you will find:

  • City Guides, Insider’s or Local Tips
  • Restaurant reviews & recommendations (primarily in, but not limited to, the Edmonton & Calgary area)
  • Foodie events (e.g., food-related festivals, restaurant launches, media events, etc.)
  • Travel stories
  • Trip-planning tips, advice and resources
  • Hotel reviews
