Hola, Guten Tag, Bonjour, 你好, こんにちは, Hello
We are Paul and Helena, a British couple from the New Forest and Bedford respectively. Paul’s love of travelling took him to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and much of South East Asia in his 20s. Meanwhile, Helena worked, travelled and studied in all sorts of glamorous (and not so glamorous) locations around the world – she went to law school in Wisconsin, worked as a janitor and a tour boat driver in Banff, helped out at a surf and yoga retreat in Maui in return for reduced accommodation and surf lessons and worked at a ski school in New Zealand.
After a shared love of travel, cheesy music and alcopops (we were both students, after all!) brought us together, we continued to travel as a couple, including trips to Bali, Vietnam, Cambodia, Brazil, India and Mexico. Finally, our search for higher mountains to hike and deeper powder to ski brought us to Western Canada, where we have been lucky enough to call North Vancouver, Whistler and now Banff our home.
We decided to start this blog to share our Canadian adventures, providing local travel tips and stories with readers who might find them interesting or useful. We hope that you enjoy it!
