Family Travel & Overlanding

Finding The World Beyond Our Comfort Zone

We’re a Canadian Family of 4 on a quest to push ourselves out of our comfort zone and explore the lesser-known corners of the globe. Our favourite question about our destination choices is “why?“, to which we always answer “why not!?“.

We used to live a traditional life, getting away as much as possible…from a weekend in the mountains to a family gap year around the world. Now, we spend part of the year at home, and part of the year travelling, usually in our self-converted Land Rover Defender, Gimli.  

Let us show you that anything is possible…even with kids!
