Backpacking to new destinations, and new continents!

Hi everyone! I feel like it’s time for an update since our year in Canada is coming to an end. We only have two months left on our Working Holiday Visas, but we have no plans at all on returning to Sweden for a while. Instead, we decided to continue travelling – our next adventure…

Kettle Valley bike tours in British Columbia

Last week I told you about the beautiful Kettle Valley Rail Trail and specifically the part we went on, from Penticton to Naramata. But as I also told you, there’s so much more to explore along this 600+ kilometre long trail – and what better way to do it than on one or several Kettle Valley…

Penticton to Naramata – Kettle Valley Rail Trail

The Kettle Valley Rail Trail is something you just can’t miss when you’re in Penticton. You can follow this trail along the lake and among mountains and vineyards from Penticton to Naramata (or the other way around). It used to be a railway, but now it serves as an amazing trail for hikers and bikers…

From Kamloops to Kelowna – hello beautiful BC!

We did it! We’re finally in BC, and it’s exactly as beautiful as we expected (and have been told!) We left Calgary on a cold morning last week and arrived in sunny Kamloops later that day. After a night in what we realized is a quite unique city, we went from Kamloops to Kelowna to…

The Peace Bridge in Calgary – a splash of colour

The Peace Bridge in Calgary is actually quite new. With its shiny red colour and unique shape, it definitely stands out architecturally in Calgary. It opened in 2012 but has become something of a landmark already. I’m sure you’ve seen it on pictures – Fredrik and I have, many times. Since we’re leaving town soon, we realized we…

First time skiing in Banff – Sunshine Village

First time skiing in Banff can make you both nervous and excited, depending on where (and how often) you’ve been skiing before. First time skiing in general, will probably mostly make you nervous. At least if you’re anything like me. On our way to the ski hill, I was actually not excited at all, just…

How to travel for free – or really cheap!

When I discovered how to travel for free or really cheap, it truly changed my whole perspective and way of travelling. If I tell people I’m a full-time traveller, there’s always someone asking if I’ve won the lottery. For me, travelling has never been about spending money, but about learning and gaining experiences abroad –…

A Johnston Canyon hike – we found the secret cave!

30 minutes outside of Banff, you’ll find this beautiful place. Johnston Canyon has a lot to offer for all different ages. The original Johnston Canyon hike will usually lead you to one or two of the falls along the trail, but for the adventurous ones there’s more to see – what about a secret cave…
