In Canada, Confessions by Virginie0 Comments

After spending a full year outside Canada, it feels so good to be back. Traveling is amazing, but coming back and feeling that sense of belonging is also pretty necessary. I couldn’t travel indefinitely and avoid Canada forever, I miss it too much. If you’ve ever traveled the world for an extended period of time and just came back home, you might very well relate to this. There are so many things I missed about Canada! 1) Flushing toilet paper in the toilet Half the world (and maybe even more) doesn’t flush toilet paper down the toilet. Instead, you have to …

Stay fit on the road: Run for a cause

In Québec, Stay Fit on the Road by Virginie0 Comments

View Post

This post is part of the Stay Fit on the Road series. There’s nothing harder than trying to stay in shape while traveling around the world. Who wants to care about that extra plate of pasta you want to eat in Italy or that tacos in Mexico? You just want to taste what’s around you and even if you might walk a lot, it’s not always enough. Especially for digital nomads like Chris and I. Even though we live in exotic locations, the majority of our time is spent in front of the computer, trying to make a living. That’s …

The ten days we spent on Chris’ farm in Regina went by very fast. Too soon, we were hoping on a plane again, this time to my house in Québec.

After three months in Costa Rica and another three in Mexico, it was time to stop home and visit our families. Chris and I also had some things to catch up on after half a year of traveling. That’s why our first stop in Canada was Regina, Saskatchewan. Let me tell you something about Saskatchewan: nobody knows either how to spell it or where it is. When someone asks us where we’re from in Canada, this is usually how it goes: Chris: I’m from Saskatchewan. Stranger: Cool. Virginie: And I’m from Québec. Stranger: OH! Québec, I love Québec, it’s such …

1.  Relax on the beach The main attraction of Sayulita isn’t hard to find: it’s its beach. Calm in the morning while the fishermen are out and more crowded in the afternoon when the sun warms it up, it’s the perfect place to relax. Whether you want to swim or tan, don’t forget your suntan lotion or you’ll probably end up looking like a lobster. In the winter, the waves are usually fine to swim in. If you think the beach in town is too crowded, head north! There’s a beach there where you’ll find a lot fewer people. That’s …
