Portugal: Faro and the Algarve region

Remember this post a little while ago about budget airlines and how annoying they can be? Well, they definitely haven't gotten any less annoying; although, we have just recently had a free holiday off them because of their horrible planning, so there is that! My sister recently came for a visit (which if the inspiration... Continue Reading →

Hello October!

"October had tremendous possibility. The summer's oppressive heat was a distant memory, and the golden leaves promised a world full of beautiful adventures. They made me believe in miracles." - Sarah Guillory September - where did you go?! Already we're into the first week of October and I'm not sure I remember how we got... Continue Reading →

#tbt – Paris and Budget Airlines

We spent the long weekend with some friends in Leeds, and whilst we were there we started to share some travel horror stories. I haven't actually had that many terrible experiences when travelling, though I have had some unexpected ones that I can laugh at now, so I wasn't quite sure what to share. I... Continue Reading →

I guess one problem I am facing is that, for the moment, our lives are actually quite boring: we get up, go to work, come home, and do it again the next day. Most... Continue Reading →

The Plan So Far: Africa 

We've had a lot of people asking us what our plans are for the year that we're away, so I figured I would do a general outline. I say general outline because at the moment we don't have a plan for most of it, but we'll definitely keep you updated as we go! Rich and... Continue Reading →

Canada Day 

July 1st - definition: Canada Day. A day where Canadians celebrate everything Canadian such as poutine, Tim Horton's, hockey, maple syrup, and touques. Which leaves some other countries scratching their heads and saying: eh? As a Canadian living abroad there is something uniquely Canadian that I miss. You can say a lot about us, but we...
