Solo Traveler

Janice Waugh started her blog in 2009, and it's now one of the top-ranking travel blogs in Canada. Waugh's personal accounts of her solo travels, along with her tips and advice, will leave you feeling confident that you too can explore the world on your own. If you're debating whether travelling solo is for you, she offers plenty of advice for those new to travelling alone and tips on how to overcome the loneliness factor.


They call themselves "Canada's Adventure Couple," and after checking out their blog, you'll clearly see why. Deb and Dave, a married couple from Toronto, have done everything from studying muay thai in Thailand to skydiving in New Zealand. Is there anything this thrill-seeking couple isn't afraid of doing? We're in awe of their gutsy and passionate way of living life to the fullest. Best of all, their "adventure is for everyone" motto inspires their readers to do the same.

Toque and Canoe

Calgary-based duo Jen Twyman and Kim Gray used their journalism backgrounds to start up this fun blog about "real" Canadian travel culture. The self-described "travel hounds" give the lowdown on the unique things they experience in each city they visit within this vast and beautiful country of ours, from touring Dawson City to offering a local's guide of Calgary.

Globetrotting Mama

In June 2011, Heather Greenwood Davis and her husband Ish left Canada with their two sons, ages 7 and 9 at the time, to travel around the world for one year. In 12 months, the Davis family travelled to six continents, visiting a total of 29 countries. Davis chronicled the year-long adventure in this blog that's filled with humour, poignancy and an honest review of travelling with kids. (The verdict: The benefits far outweigh any perceived stress.) You might just be inspired to take a unique family vacation like this yourself.

Hecktic Travels

In 2009, Canadian couple Dalene and Peter Heck left their corporate jobs and sold their house to travel the world — and they haven't looked back since. Bolivia, Ecuador, Croatia, Finland, Italy, Malta and Morocco are just a handful of the countries the Hecks have been to and chronicled in this blog. As house-sitters taking up residence in exciting destinations around the world, this couple isn't slowing down on the travelling anytime soon. In their own words, "this life is too good."
