We are Nicola and Jeff O’Keefe. We have been together for eleven years and married for the last eight. We love to travel and in 2013/2014 we travelled to all 7 continents over a fourteen month period. We will be travelling for another year during 19/20.
We live and work in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, Canada. We work for Aurora College. Jeff has lived in Fort Smith since 1997 and Nicola since 1985.
Nicola has travelled to close to 80 countries in her life. She was born in Scotland and moved to Canada when she was six years old. She has lived in Fort Smith since she was eight. She has travelled for extended periods during and after university. Her longest trip was seven months spent travelling through Africa. That is before our world tour.
Jeff has travelled to far fewer countries than Nicola… only 50. In fact, it was Nicola that gave him the bug. He is originally from Welland, Ontario and has lived in Fort Smith since 1997. The first year was a long time but he is ready for their second year of travel.[slideshow id=2]
