BC Trip 2020 - Fernie and Banff - Bow Glacier Falls

This second part of our trip report starts at Rossland and continue East. We didn't go to Banff right away, first I wanted to see Fernie, about a 4 hour drive. I've come across that town in several guides, so I finally wanted to see what this town is all about.

Our first stop...

BC Trip 2020 - Rossland, Castlegar and Nelson

Reporting back from our grand BC trip to Banff, which came together last minute after friends invited us to join them at their campsite in Banff. We thought we make the best out of it and explore other surrounding parts we haven't been to before. Because of the lenght of the trip I'll split this blo...

BC Hiking - Deeks Lake

Looking back on a day hike we did back in June with our friends Sean and Alice. The hike was up to Deeks Lake, which is park of the Howe Sound Crest Trail starting from Porteau Cove. The hike is about 12 km and takes around 5 hours to complete. For the most part it is not that steep, so just very en...

Red Mountain 2020

Time to wrap up the winder season. Back in Feburary we decided to explore some new place we haven't been before. After weighting our options we agreed to plan another snowboarding trip (which also turned out to be our last one for the season). The decision was between a few places but I ended up dec...

Favourite runs at Cypress

The local Winter season came to an abrubt end due to the Coronavirus, so I thought I look back at the great season I had. After I started snowboarding at Cypress about 5 years ago I got better for about 2 or 3 years but then hit a point where I was not progressing much anymore. I was just doing blue...

Hawaii 2019 - East Coast

After surviving the hurricane in our little tent at the beach it was time to move on and explore the rest of the island. First stop for the day was the Polynesian Cultural Center a few kilometers south to join a cooking class for traditional Polynesian food.

We were quite lucky as there was only o...

Hawaii 2019 - North Coast

We're back again with probably our last series for the year with our trip to Hawaii in October, split up into two parts. I had two weeks off inbetween switching jobs, so it was the prefect opportunity to escape Vancouver rain for a bit and explore a sunnier place.

We've both never been to Hawaii...

With the train to Jasper and Prince Rupert

When JJ became a Candian citizen she also got a voucher for a discounted train ticket. We have been thinking of trying out taking the train before, so this was the perfect opportunity, since it couldn't get much cheaper.

Our plan was to start in Vancouver, go east to Jasper in Alberta and then con...
