SURPRISE! We decided it was time to leave Australia. Any guesses where we are for the holidays?

4 Years

We don't have an exact date, but sometime in February 2014, Matt and I started dating. Over the years, we've decided on the 18th (as we weren't going to let Valentine's Day steal our thunder). In the time we've been together, we've experienced and shared so much with one another. I don't want to get too... Continue Reading →

Happy Birthday Matt

Dear Matt, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVE! Today my favourite travel buddy, my partner in crime, my best friend and the taller (much more handsome) half of Borderline Backpackers turns 26. You are the smartest, kindest and most inspirational person I have ever met. We've been all over the world together and you still manage to surprise... Continue Reading →

This year, we were fortunate to explore through 3 different continents, countless cities and with all the people we love! Thank you to everyone we met along the way, you have all made this year so special for us.

Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls found between the... Continue Reading →

The Country That Time Forgot

At the time of our visit to Cuba (October 2014), the US embargo was still in full effect. A year before our trip, all government-imposed travel restrictions for Cubans were abolished, meaning Cubans were actually allowed to leave their country. There were still restrictions for Americans entering Cuba, and until August 2016 no commercial flights... Continue Reading →

It’s 5 O’clock somewhere.

Is it acceptable to drink before midday? I mean, it was the weekend, so we'll let it slide... We started our Saturday morning at Di Profio Winery in Jordan, Ontario. Wine tasting can be enjoyed all year long, but the harvest season is typically September to October in Niagara. This means the wineries get pretty... Continue Reading →

“Yolanda, be cool”

Ally and I had gone to meet her Uncle Kurt, for a late breakfast in Orangeville. Angel's Diner was exactly the way American diners look in the movies to us Brits: red booth seats, race flag flooring and neon lights. It could've been the set for the opening scene of Pulp Fiction for all I... Continue Reading →
