Well, I thought it would never come but at last, here we have another video update from my current adventure with Viator. As I recall from my last travels here, internet in Asia can be pretty frustrating so getting a video on to YouTube takes patience and determination. Officially we have Japan and China under [...]
During our meanderings through Beijing, I came across a display showing some of the ways they used to tell time in ancient China (and other parts of the world I can only assume) before there were clocks as we know them today. One example used burning incense, string and bells while the other was simply [...]
Well, Tokyo is under our belt! Asha and I had an incredible time exploring the city and some places nearby. From the friendly people and efficient culture to the temples from the past and the quirky aspects, I truly fell in love with both the city of Tokyo and the country of Japan. We’ve been [...]
Wow! I am already in love with Japan! As promised, it’s another update as my explorations of Asia are officially underway. Asha and I are having a blast and I wanted to share a little moment from one of the tours we filmed: Mt. Fuji! Sending you big love! Until next time, Sayonara!
I’ve had an exciting announcement to share with you. A big one. Last year I spent the summer travelling around North America filming and hosting tours for a company called Viator. Each day my partner Jules and I would go on tours, one of us would host or ‘experience’ the tour while the other would [...]

-You can read below but honestly…watch the video above. It is so much more fun. The bloopers are possibly better than the announcement itself- It seems to have snuck up on me. Somehow in the last couple months I added 10 more countries to my list of visited places. No wonder I’m feeling so travel [...]
Well, Halloween is upon us once again! As I was growing up, October 31st was one of my favourite a days of the year. You got to pick a costume, dress up, wear it to school, then parade around town collecting as much candy as possible. I would go as far as devising [...]
Back home in Canada it is Thanksgiving weekend. Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and so on. Mmmm. This year I am on the other side of the world and unable to celebrate back in my native land. However, that doesn’t mean I can’t be thankful. Aside from the lack of pumpkin pie here in Macedonia, it’s [...]
Watch more travel videos at tripfilms.com All summer long you’ve been listening to it. The grocery store, driving in the car, the guy sitting next to you on the subway with his iPod turned up WAY to high – you simply can’t escape this tune. The singer is Carly Rae Jepsen and the song is [...]
So, there’s this game I play with fellow travellers. Whether it’s to break the ice, stir up conversation or simply find out what places people want to visit, it’s always fun. I’ll explain how exactly it works in another post but today I want to address something that has continuously come up each time we [...]
I was chatting up this elderly couple the other day as we were being shuttled out to board our airplane. They were on their way to Malta. The two had just explored Russia and northern Europe and were ready to warm up in the Mediterranean. They were from Australia, were abroad for a few months and [...]
