We are a family of four (five if you count our dog Navi) that enjoys to travel off the beaten path. We have been lucky enough to have circumnavigated the globe twice so far; once with our kids and once before having kids. 

We currently call the beautiful Crowsnest Pass area of Southwestern Alberta home and are enjoying our explorations here.

We want to share our experiences and tips with you to try and inspire you to get out and explore on your own. You won't find long wordy blog posts on our site. You hopefully will find just enough to make you want to get out and make your own stories. Life is short...get out and explore!

Our Travels

 "To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world." Freya Stark


Waking alone in a strange town is quite an addictive feeling and one we look forward to feeling on our travels. We definitely prefer to travel off the beaten path and try to avoid tour companies and tourist crowds whenever possible. Independent travel allows us to mix and mingle with the locals and the more you can engage with the locals, the more memorable and authentic your experiences tend to be. 

We travel to gain a deeper understanding of the cultures and environments that we are visiting​, which in turn gives us a better understanding of our place in the world. If this sounds like your kind of travel then come along and join the Shacks on the road and get inspired to make your own stories.
