About Us

Starting in May 2019, we began another year of travel. In 2013/14, we travelled the world for 13 months. We live and work in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, Canada. We work for Aurora College.

Over the past four years: Galapagos, Ireland, Scotland, Columbia, Alaska, Jamaica and more. Nicola has been to 130 countries and territories (using the criteria established by Travellers’ Century Club). Jeff has been to only 97 using the same list. Using just UN Member States and Non-Member Observor States, Nic has been to 100 and Jeff to 74. The Philippines was number 100 for Nicola.

We hope you will follow along with our next adventure: World Tour Take 2 - May 2019 to May 2020.
