Our adventures in a nutshell:

We are a family of 4 currently living in Nova Scotia, Canada. After meeting in Ibiza, Spain – where our son, Goose, was born – we moved to Canada. We settled in Sidney, BC for a few years and used it as a base to explore much that Vancouver Island had to offer before having our second child, Monkey, and departing for a whirlwind adventure through Scotland, England, France, Spain and Germany. Where upon we returned to Canada, bought an old RV (Brian) – which we put into storage before heading off to Thailand for 4 winter months. After returning yet again to Canada, we set off from Sidney, BC for our cross Canada trip which eventually landed us in Nova Scotia, where we continue to seek out local adventures from the comfort of home.
