Our Story

Welcome to our travel blog!

Hello! We are Nicole and Cameron Wears, a married couple and newbie parents living in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia on the west coast of Canada.

The goal for this travel blog is simple – to share our adventures, stories and tips from our travels around the globe and in our backyard, with the hope that it will inspire you to travel more or helps you plan that next big adventure.

Travel is very personal and means different things to different people. To some, it’s a one week vacation to an all-inclusive hotel in the Caribbean. To others, it’s strapping on a backpack with no plans or itinerary.

Our hope is that this blog helps you find travel inspiration regardless of your travel style.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have traveled to over 65 countries and territories together in the past 7 years, fulfilling many of our life goals and dreams along the way.

Travel and adventure is a common passion that has always played an important role in our lives. Our exposure to travel began at young ages, with Cam living in Nairobi, Kenya at age 12 and Nicole backpacking around Europe at age 19.

After living in Malaysia in 2004 and exploring most of Southeast Asia, we caught the travel bug and have since made traveling an important part of our lives.

In the summer of 2008 we made a bold move, we traded our great jobs for a backpack and a checklist. It has proven to be one of the greatest decisions we’ve ever made.

After spending over a year on the road in 2009, we no longer have the desire to live out of a backpack indefinitely. We should not be mistaken for digital nomads on a trip that never ends. We have a home in beautiful Vancouver and go to work every day like most people – we just choose to not sacrifice travel for work, and vice versa.

We are career focused, young professionals that have a passion for travel, adventure, food and culture. We are proof that it is possible to build a career and family AND travel the globe and follow your dreams.

For those of you that don’t know, a Canuck is a slang term used to describe a Canadian. It is also the name of Vancouver’s professional hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks, hence the name of our travel site. You just learned something new today – now take the rest of the day off, you deserve it!
