Puerto Vallarta: More than Beaches and Margaritas

View of Puerto Vallarta from Cerro de la Cruz lookout, a short, steep hike from the city

By Carley Fairbrother

Two years ago we moved to the rainy west side of the Rockies. While we revelled in the easy-access to spectacular winter recreation, we found the gloomy weather in the valley difficult to swallow. By March, we needed a getaway.

With only a week to spare, we needed something quick, and while the major tourist destinations of Mexico have never had a big appeal to me, we decided that between time and budget constraints, Puerto Vallarta was the best candidate for helping us get read more

The Natural Beauty of the Midnight Sun Norway

Midnight Sun Norway along the road south of Bodo

Heading north of the arctic circle during summer in Norway is where you can witness a wondrous phenomenon known as the midnight sun. Indeed, Norway itself has often been referred to as ‘the land of the midnight sun’, although this can only really be seen way up in the north of the country.

You can also see the midnight sun in other countries such as Sweden, Finland, Russia, Canada, USA (Alaska), Iceland and Denmark (Greenland). This is where the sun does not set during summer months within read more

Create a Self Love Retreat on Your Next Walk in the Wilds

Create a self love retreat 1

By bringing a notebook…

Or every time, if we are lucky enough to be able to carve out that time for ourselves.

The experience I am suggesting below can work when you are by yourself, when you are hiking or camping with friends read more

Poo Bags: Remove the Taboo from needing a poo.

By Samantha Kent

It’s an age-old saying “Does a bear s**t in the woods?” but the thing is sometimes it’s not just bears… Sometimes it’s not even the woods! As a children’s book so eloquently puts it “Everybody poops”. One thing the old saying nor the children’s book cover explains is… What to do, when you need to poo…. Yet there is no loo!

This is where the emergency poo bags come in!

The first thing I want to talk about with these bags is how funny they are. The art by Jenny read more

The Natural Beauty of the Lofoten Islands Norway

The Marina at Svolvær Norway

If you don’t mind the cold so much and you love checking out island paradises, the Lofoten Islands Norway just might be heaven on earth for you.

Campsites near Tokyo Japan Karuizawa Sweet Glass

By Venese Lau

If you love camping and want to explore the camping scene, you might be surprised by all the wonderful places Japan has to offer. Most campsites are available throughout the year (yes, even in the freezing winters!). However, I’d recommend camping during the warmer seasons, between the months of March and September. Just avoid the few weeks of rain in June, and the typhoon period in late August, early September.

There are many different campsites in Japan, in places such as parks, read more

How to Protect Yourself in the Wilderness

How to Protect Yourself in the Wilderness

Considering how to protect yourself in the wilderness

By Scarlet Gratton

Planning for your wilderness getaway never kicks off with thoughts on getting lost in the woods or spotting a bear. We envision perfect, sunny weather, peaceful hiking trails, butterflies, birdsong, waking up to the sound of the babbling brook nearby, and tasting fresh berries you’ve just picked. The reality, however is somewhat different, and it calls for thorough preparation for your trips to the beautiful outdoors, in order to stay read more
