Who are ‘you and Ewan’? We are Canadians who are food, music and cat lovers. Oh, and we are hooked on traveling. We are in the midst of a world adventure.
Originally from Calgary, we have constantly switched things up to find a community to live in that we love. Six cities and four provinces later, we called Toronto home. We had a great network of friends, fantastic jobs and an endless supply of things to see, do and enjoy. And while we were truly lucky to be so fortunate at that stage in our lives, we checked out to go on a Round the World trip to satiate our appetite for travel.
Our mutual wanderlust grew after we travelled for three months in University to Western Europe and Egypt; we survived traveling together and wanted to further explore the world and check more items off our bucket lists. Since that first trip we’ve done plenty of big and little trips together, from Asia, Central America, Europe and the Middle East. Our trips were wonderful, but we felt constrained to vacation allowances and strict itineraries.
In 2012 as we were saving up for our China trip, we had an epiphany: we could make travel a priority and save up for an adventure that would be longer than 3 weeks. From that point on, we focused on saving up and getting our things aligned to make this leap.
Since leaving Canada on New Years Eve 2013, we’ve travelled in Mexico, South America and are currently in Europe. We’ve done epic adventures like hike the Inca Trail, climb a volcano in Chile and experience the Bolivian salt flats. We’ve also just lazed around and explored cities. We’ve met up with friends. We’ve tried to improve our Spanish speaking. And we feel truly alive.
This corner of the Internet will serve as a journal of what the heck we’re up to. We hope you follow along and enjoy!
