Hi, I’m Justin, and welcome to my travel blog.
In one of my very first memories I’m four or five years old and I’ve discovered a worn footpath alongside a busy road near our house. In the distance I can see mountains, beautiful snow-covered towering mountains. I get on my bicycle and pedal.
Little did I know, those mountains that captivated me were a hundred miles away. Needless to say, I never made it. But, strangely, I have no memory of ever turning back.
The thirst for adventure infected me young. Each summer we took a family trip to visit relatives on the other side of the Canadian Rockies in BC. A highlight of that annual escape was stopping somewhere in the national parks to hike or climb up to a waterfall or simply have a picnic in a secluded forest. When we got to BC my cousin and I would often jump on our bikes and pedal like mad to scramble up some local peak. But I dreamed of more distant, exotic adventures.
Here you’ll find a site dedicated to adventure travel and discovering authentic experiences in off-the-beaten-track locations. My first trip outside North America wasn’t Europe or Australia or any of the other places a first-time overseas traveller might choose. I went to Antarctica – the coldest, highest, and driest continent on earth. Now I travel as much as I can… to anywhere I can go. I’ve felt the calling to see such unique places as Bhutan, Bangladesh, Kilimanjaro, and North Korea, but I always come back to Canada for its peacefulness and solitude and to visit my mom.
