About us


We are Dan Barnes and Therese Kehler, a (married-to-each-other) couple of journalists in Edmonton, Alberta.

The idea for this blog was born on a muddy hiking trail in Newfoundland. As with many of the trips we’ve taken (many in the company of our four – now grown – children), we put a lot of research and planning in on the front end, with the hopes that we can get more out of the holiday when we are there.

So that’s a little bit of what this blog is about — we’ll share some of our travelling research, hits and misses.

Travel is certainly the fun part of life’s journey, but other things are always getting in the way. Jobs and responsibilities and such. So, when we don’t have stories from the road, we’ll try to entertain, or inform, or be entertainingly informative, with stories from the home front.

We’d love to hear from you — comment on the stories or drop us a line, anytime.

Thanks for stopping by and we hope to see you again out on the road.
