Hello! We’re Charles and Micki Kosman and we’ve created this website as our journal into the world of adventure traveling. We’ve been to numerous locations around the globe with a major emphasis on Southern Asia. Beginning with our first year long adventure in 2003, we’ve literally spent years traveling and are always eager to pack our gear and head out again.
We’ve changed our traveling habits over the years from light backpacks and dodgy hostels to larger backpacks and reputable accommodations, but our sense of adventure has remained the same.
We decided to pursue a family life a few years back and are now teaching our little ones the joys of travel. Our son, Cole, is content wherever we happen to be and our younger daughter Jordan is always pulling us along.
To date, we’ve taken them traveling through Cuba, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Costa Rica, Mexico, Hawaii, Canada and the USA. With hundreds of possible destinations left to go, there’s a lifetime of adventure just waiting for us!
With both our kids along for the ride, last winter we enjoyed spending time in beautiful Hawaii. The winter before we spent six months checking out some warm southern climates. We spent two months in Mexico followed by two months in Costa Rica. After that we decided to check out a few warm US states and spent the next few months in Florida, Texas, Nevada and Arizona. While in Arizona we decided to come back to Kamloops, British Columbia for a year contract and to enjoy our Canadian summer here with friends and family. We fell in love with the area and decided to make it our home base and have been here ever since.
Now that we’ve sold our cabin in Manitoba, we’re fully free to start traveling more year round and from where we stand, the travel possibilities are endless.
This winter we’re off to Mexico and maybe Belize for a few months before flying into Madrid, Spain in February. From there we’re hoping to spend some time in Portugal, Morocco and Andalusia before heading out to visit Italy, Greece and Turkey. As always with us, nothing is set in stone and we might just blow wherever the wind and our bare feet take us. We’re especially excited because for the first time in years our itinerary is wide open and our timeline is truly open ended.
