Most of us are living urban lifes full of to-do lists and Deadlines. But when heading out into nature our perspective changes, giving back value to experience and creating awareness for our daily urban lifes.
This is what we experienced this year in Alberta, Canada.

From a Bon Appétit magazine online article:
While the drive from Calgary to Jasper can easily be done in a day, I recommend taking at least a week to travel there and back. That leaves plenty of time to find adventure off the main road, spend some nights in the backcountry, and explore each town along the route.
When it comes to eating, exploring, and slumbering in the best log cabins, here’s a road-tripping itinerary that’ll get you away from the crowds and out among those big rocks.
- CALGARY – DAY 1: Eat, shop, and stock up on snacks in a city nicknamed “Cowtown” – The bureka plate from universally adored Sidewalk Citizen (618 Confluence Way SE, Calgary, AB) is an ideal breakfast—the sesame-topped, feta-filled pastry is stuffed with a fried egg and served with a lemony cucumber and tomato salad, a hefty spoonful of hummus, and the housemade green or red harissa.
- CANMORE – DAY 2: See how they do afternoon tea Rockies style – For dinner in Canmore, Where the Buffalo Roam Saloon (626 Main St. #2, Canmore, AB) is an intimate candlelit bar and restaurant popular with locals.
- BANFF – DAY 3: (Safely) scale a mountain, then go back in time

From a Curbed.com online review:
One of the most refreshing companies currently converting vans is Nomad Vanz. Based in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Nomad Vanz builds custom vans for weekend adventurers or for full-time van lifers. Most builds use the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter high or low roof vehicles, although Nomad Vanz has done partial conversions for customers who own Ford Transits, Dodge ProMasters, and the Mercedes-Benz Metris.
We first met the Nomad Vanz crew at Overland Expo in 2018 where we ogled their showcase van Out of the Blue. Today we’re checking out their latest build, Jupiter, which transformed a bright red Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4×4 Cargo Van into a home-on-the-go. The high-roof van features the shortest wheelbase (144 inches) offered by Mercedes, but Nomad Vanz still manages to fit in all the essentials, and more.
Step into the sliding side door and you’re struck by the van’s bright colors. A yellow floor is both durable and cheery, and red kitchen cabinets match the van’s exterior. A feature Chilewich wall adds texture to compliment the other colors, while gray storage upper and central cabinets balance out the design.

From a National Geographic online article:
On the mainland, drive east to St. Martins, gateway to The Fundy Trail, a 6,323-acre coastal wilderness park. Wind along coastal cliffs on the 19-mile Fundy Trail Parkway to watch the tides and access paths to waterfalls, beaches, and a suspension bridge.
In St. Martins, the world’s highest tides create the rare opportunity to explore sea caves on foot and on the water. Check the tide chart to plan a low-tide walk out to the caves, allowing plenty of time to return to shore before the water rises. At high tide, float into the caves on a Red Rock Adventure sea kayaking trip.
Watch a six-hour timelapse of the rising tide that lifts fishing boats 50 up from the tidal bottom:

From a Canada.com online article:
If there’s only one drive that makes your list on your BC getaway, the Sea to Sky Highway has got to be it. No need to go stir crazy from a long drive, as the route offers plenty of worth-while stops along the way. Start your drive in BC’s urban centre of Vancouver and head north to Whistler and Pemberton via the Sea to Sky Highway. Snake your way through the small community of Horseshoe Bay and into Squamish where the Sea to Sky Gondola makes the perfect pit stop to gain another perspective of the vistas that surround you. Continue north along Highway 99 Sea-to-Sky corridor to Whistler, where you’ll find a variety of four-season activities in, and surrounding, the village.
