Hi, my name is Caroline. That’s me, strolling in Egypt’s spectacular White Desert. I love this photo. I can feel how energized and happy I am. I’m addicted to travel and outdoor adventures. I crave the surprise, beauty, chaos, rush and calm. When I’m not traveling or travel planning, I dream, read, and write about traveling. I earn money for my adventures as a freelance writer and editor (sometimes I get paid to write about cool places…this makes me very happy). Welcome to my blog.
What do I write about?
My posts are all first-hand accounts of my travels and activities. I’ve traveled to 5 continents and almost 50 countries. Not all my posts are from far-flung spots; many are from my “backyard” in beautiful British Columbia. I particularly enjoy active travel, so you’ll see posts about hiking, scuba diving, kayaking, and biking in some really sweet spots.
Meet my frequent travel companions
I pitch, plan, and work out all the logistics. Usually, my hubby (Mike) and sometimes, my son (Alex) come along for the ride. They (especially the old one) usually have fun, though at times they are less than amused. The young one, who’s in university now, is still waiting to go on his dream trip: a malaria-free, luxury all-inclusive Caribbean beach holiday. Hopefully one day, he will look back fondly at the wild and wonderful places I’ve dragged him to, and maybe one day, I will surprise him with an all-inclusive…meh, probably not!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”— Mark Twain
