Jasper National Park

The Grotto and the Bruce Trail

The Grotto is one of Tobermory’s most well known destinations. The climb down isn’t for the faint of heart  – it’s a bit tricky to get to. It requires some slippery rock climbing and comfort hiking on strenuous trails. But it is so worth it! The water was quite refreshing after our hot summer, but…

Tobermory and Flowerpot Island

Tobermory is a little community at the farthest point of the Bruce Peninsula. It is the gateway to numerous natural wonders that will leave you in awe of Georgian Bay’s beauty. The town itself primarily serves as the ferry hub for the Chi-Cheemaun to Manitoulin Island.

Los Cangilones de Gualaca during Carnivale

During our trip to Panama, we went to two river canyons. The first was Macho de Monte and the second was Los Cangilones de Gualaca. Cangilones was a ton of fun because it was so busy for the Carnivale celebrations.

Tofino, BC

We’ve been to Tofino a couple of times now. Our most recent visit was in May 2016. This isn’t so much a post about the trip, rather it is an opportunity to share some pretty pictures and recommend a few places to stop when you’re heading to Tofino.

Minister’s Island

Only accessible by a sand bar that appears during low tide, Minister’s Island is near the picturesque town of Saint-Andrews-By-The-Sea. The island is full of history, innovation and beauty which makes it a great place to visit and explore.
