Hello and welcome, fellow adventurer! My name is Darlene, and I’m a resident of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Travel is just one of my many passions, which also include, but are not limited to; soap making, wine making, beer making, heritage conservation, knitting and crocheting, jewelry-making, various ever-changing hobbies, animals, and the list goes on.
For me, travel is something I need in my life; part escape, part adventure, part exploration, part personal fulfillment. I’ve traveled my entire life; thanks to parents who made travel a priority in our family, regardless of our finances. With my parents, I traveled extensively through Western Canada and the United States. But I never journeyed overseas until I met my wonderful, and even more adventurous husband, Mark.
Since then, we’ve visited over 28 countries, including parts of Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, the United Kingdom, and the list continues. I want to share the things we’ve learned in our travels, and highlight some of the incredible things we’ve seen and done. I also know there are a lot of people who want to travel but haven’t taken that leap yet for whatever reason. Hopefully I can inspire and encourage those people to just do it – no more excuses!
