TRAVEL | Wild Rock Adventures, Ucluelet

After my incredible trip this past winter storm watching in Ucluelet, I knew I wanted to come back with Terry this summer. Over the years, we've done trips to the island and we wanted to do something we've never done before. After some research, we decided to book a trip with Wild Rock Adventures! I invited my sister and her 2 kids and the 5 of us hit the road to Ukee! ^^ my...

TRAVEL | Belizean Dreams | Hopkins, Belize

In part one, I took you through our time in Ambergris Caye, part two we went into the jungle and now for the final post-- we head to Hopkins!  Hopkins is a small coastal village located in the Stann Creek District in Belize. Home to approximately 1000 villagers, it's a tiny yet vibrant town that was recently voted as the "friendliest village in Belize." As soon as you meet a local from Hopkins, you'll...

TRAVEL | San Ignacio, Belize

In the first part of our Belize Travel Guide, we shared our experience traveling around the cayes off the coast of Belize. Belize is such a diverse country with so many unique landscapes and this is partially why we decided to head into the jungle. Not as many tourists take their time to head into central Belize towards San Ignacio, but we were certainly glad we did!  San Ignacio is located right on the...

Ucluelet Diary | Storm Watching

With the year end winding down, we decided to cross one last thing off the travel bucket list... STORM WATCHING! Being in love with Vancouver Island, I've visited in all seasons but the winter. I've always been curious what the powerful sea would look like during the moody storm season and we figured what better place than to do it from Ucluelet. After a little research, I packed up my warmest jacket, my rain...

Whistler Spotlight | Summit Lodge Boutique Hotel

Every year, Terry and I make our "bucket list" of trips/hikes/goals for the summer months. Usually we are pretty good at checking things off our list, but for nearly 2 years we've had Joffre Lakes on our list to hike! As the very last week of August rolled around we decided to finally make it happen! Joffre Lakes Provincial Park is in Pemberton (roughly one hour from Whistler), so it was the perfect excuse...

You guys are amazing I love that so many of you also have an appreciation for the outdoors! I wanted to share more of this beauty with you all, so I decided to take my pal and photographer Iulia up there for our latest Explore...

Travel | Tofino

Tofino is a truly special place to me. It holds many meaningful memories, of life changing times. I visited for the first time, nearly 10 years ago on a surf trip with friends when I was dating Terry. It's no secret that I adore the ocean, so it was a love-at-first-sight kind of trip. Every time I've returned since, it reminds me of when my hubby and I were dating. It's also a place...

Adventure | Lindeman Lake

Yesterday was one of those days I want to remember. You know the days where your heart feels full, you're surrounded in beauty, with your favourite people- doing what you love? Yup, it was one of those days.  Terry, Hurley and I woke up to another day of gorgeous sunshine and decided it was finally time to check out Lindeman Lake (which has been on my list of places to explore for years).  Hurley was...
