Sometimes you need to seek places that make you feel comfortably small. Where the WiFi is non-existent but the sights and sounds of nature are vibrant and abundant 💦
A place where you can sink your bare feet into the Earth while your head is in the clouds.
Where you can turn your mind off, slow your breathing and deeply appreciate the unique beauty of Mother Nature 🍃
Nature. Its our favourite place to be and we need a healthy dose of it every day if possible! We’re pretty sure we’re part rabbit or horse or butterfly because we really just want to be outside, admiring the plants and exploring in the warm sunshine 😂. Please do us a favour this weekend and step outside, enjoy nature in any capacity you can wherever you are ♥️
Why do we travel?
We travel to escape the norm. To be different and to break out of comfort zones. We don’t worry about the future - a family, having a mortgage or retirement. We worry about RIGHT NOW! Our happiness, our next destination, or the people we meet. We travel to improve ourselves to create the best version of ourselves, to open up our minds and to become less judgemental people. These are just a few of the many reasons why we live the life we live, and we want to show you that theres more than just one way to do it!

Me and you against the world 🍃
Throughout this journey of life you’ll encounter naysayers and non-believers. People who will say you can’t do this or can’t do that. They’ll even shoot your dreams down right in your face!
Why do they do that? Because they’re scared. Scared that you’ll be doing better than them. Scared that you’ll achieve more than them. Scared that they’ll have to watch you from the sidelines living out your wildest dreams.✨
Our message to you is to have the confidence and willpower to do whatever you want to do in life. To do what makes you happy and sets your soul on fire! And if it fails, to get up and do it all again! Have the courage that the naysayers don’t have and just keep doing what you do until you reach those dreams ✨💛

CONFESSION TIME 🙈☺️
Yesterday we did a Q&A and we hope you enjoyed reading through everything we had to say! One of the questions you asked the most was how did we meet? So here goes nothing 🙈
Way back before Instagram in 2009, Twitter launched its platform. People from our hometown of Toronto started flocking over from Facebook (including us) to check it out. Somehow we ended up following each other but never thought anything of it... Fast forward a few years, Facebook introduced its “suggested friends” feature which linked various social platforms and somehow we ended up being friends on there, and then later on Instagram. Almost 6 years later we ended up meeting at a local Thai restaurant and the rest was history! So there you have it, Social Media changing lives in more than just one way! 🙌
How did you meet your partner?

Morning light ✨🍃
Whomever thought sleeping in was cool probably never woke up on a swinging bed in the jungle 😂
In all seriousness though, we have been extremely fortunate to have watched the sunrise together all over the world - and we wanted to reflect a bit on just how deeply grateful we are to have these opportunities.
It’s not always an easy journey, but our hope with our account is that it would always inspire people to see the world in a more beautiful way. Our hope is that our adventures and our work would perhaps open your eyes a little wider to the beauty of our planet and the beauty of all the people you cross paths with! 🙌🤗

We prefer to dream with our eyes wide open! ✨
Dreaming is not something that only happens when you sleep 💤 Everything you’ve ever imagined or wished for IS attainable💪 Everything you see on this platform and what others are doing here IS achievable 🙌
We don’t come from money💸 We never won the lottery💰None of this was given to us. We started and continue to run this Instagram page not to brag about all the magical places we visit, but to show you that everything is possible if you just take the leap and step outside of your comfort zone.
You CAN travel the world long-term ✈️ You CAN find true love♥️ You CAN live your wildest dreams if you work for it and don’t give up!
So when you wake up tomorrow don’t let those dreams stay in your sleep! Go out there and get them! 👊
There is a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss many of them.
One of our favourite moments from our trip to Nusa Penida was watching the sun break over the horizon from this treehouse perfectly perched on a clifftop somewhere on the east-side of the island. -
It’s moments like this that we look at each other and laugh because we never used to be sunrise people... but our time in Indonesia has definitely changed that! Theres something so special about waiting for the sun to rise up over the horizon, being together alone, and listening to the world around you slowly wake up... we’re addicted to it!
Would you get up for sunrise if it looked like this?
