It’s More Interesting When it’s Painted

Finally. Finally we’re on the road. For the past months we’ve been almost certain that our friends must have felt as though they were caught in an endless loop of saying goodbye, only to see us “…one more time.” But now we’re on the road and, with the love of our friends and families warming […]

Calgary, AB to Portland, OR (Reckoning and Revelling)

Reckoning and Revelling

How do you begin to let go when your rational mind tells you to hold on good and tight, to the familiar, the comfortable and the normalcy of your life. Urging you to cling to the things that feel real and safe in your everyday. This can be challenging for a nomadic soul that has […]

Companions to a Great Idea

Towards the end of November, Nita and I applied to the Ted Simon Foundation with the hopes of working with them to publish a book at the close of our travels. We’d been planning to submit an application from the first announcement of the foundation as we felt our beliefs and raison d’être were so aligned. […]

Box Paper Scissors, Kensington

The First Wave Goodbye

Kensington is a quaint little area of Calgary, close to where we currently live and is one of the first places I came back to after arriving from NYC in 2006. Only one week had passed since my three day drive back from the East Coast with a puppy and a rental SUV, filled from […]

Paris, Days 3-6

To Face Unafraid

The snow is falling once again here in Western Canada, blanketing all who dwell below and revealing a vast gentle hush amongst the masses. When the occasional sound of laughter leaving our neighbour’s front door makes us think of family and close friends, no matter how far they may be. We are reminded of how […]

Valbonne, Antibes & Cannes, France (Heads in the Clouds)

Heads in the Clouds, Feet on the Ground

The year is coming to a close and the next is bringing massive and exciting changes along with it. Nita and I have always been fans of change – we somehow seem built for it. We enjoy seeing our life in seasons where each part is clearly defined by people, places and passages. The beauty of a […]

Days Off in Palm Springs, CA (Out with the New)

Out with the New, in with the Useful

We are now nine months away from our world adventure and lately I’ve been thinking, “I sure hope all of this new doesn’t get old” as so much of what we obtain in life tends to inevitably do, all too quickly. This, after all, seems to be a part of the human condition. Presently, new […]

Nuri's Pics from Our Time on the Road (Letting go)

Look Where You Want to Go

Another End. We are in our second week back from our near two-month Western US ride and we know one thing to be true: we love being on the road and are always a bit surprised at the end of a long journey that the desire to remain moving forward is so apparent. The previous […]

Starting at the End of the Road

With an estimated 64% of total roads in the US being paved and just under 40% in Canada it comes to pass that many of the worlds most beautiful spots are not accessible with the comfort afforded by a smooth asphalt surface. So, for us, it’s making more and more sense to spend time where the pavement ends […]

Moo Cards

Small Bites

There and gone in a flash is how I describe a photo op when travelling on two wheels. Where there is rarely time for a second glance. Leaving an impression more like a snap shot in your mind rather than long lasting panoramic. But I kind of love the idea of this – setting your […]
