We hope everyone’s having a wonderful start to the New Year. We’re going to be working hard to make The Barefoot Nomad even better this year with a new updated site layout planned and tons of great new content in the works.
We’re also going to start adding more local Canadian content for any of you visiting this area of the world. With the Rocky Mountains on our doorstep, Vancouver and the islands a stones throw away and living in the beautiful wine and lake area of the Okanagan you can bet there’s a ton for us to cover.
Mostly, we’d love to hear your thoughts about the site. What would you like to see more (or less) of? Any family, travel preparation, destination advice or whatever you’d like us to tackle in a post? Let us know. We’re always looking to expand our repertoire and always willing to share our thoughts.
We've been traveling around the world since 2003, first as a couple and now as a family of four. We love sharing our adventures and the lessons we've picked up on the road. Contact us or check our About page for more info.
