This post has been a hard one to write, which is why we haven’t yet. It’s also why we’ve been MIA for quite a while on this little app. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A few months back our beloved van was involved in an accident. Thankfully no one was hurt, but unfortunately we can’t say the same for Bluey. We know it’s silly to be so attached to an object, and most of you who have never lived in a van will probably never understand, but it feels like we’ve lost a limb or our cat just died. Some of our most treasured memories were created in this van. He symbolises so much more to us then just four wheels and a mode of transport — he was our home away from home. He was the first ‘house’ we’ve ever owned, our shelter from many storms, the best spot to watch a sunset, the source of our adventure and most importantly; he was our freedom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some of you may remember all of the time, effort and money we spent last year trying to import him from America and get him registered in Canada. It took the better part of 6 months to get him back on the road, so to say we’re pretty heartbroken that he’ll never drive again is an understatement. And the icing on the cake is we’re now stuck in a battle with our insurance who are trying to screw us out of 90% of our settlement money. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re not sure what this means for our future travels as we have so much tied up in the van but we hope we’re able to find another van and continue our plan of travelling Alaska next year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But for now, we say RIP to the best home on wheels we could have asked for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On a side note: if anyone has dealt with an ICBC insurance claim and could offer some advice we’d really appreciate the help 🙏🏼

Well I've definitely learned a few things about myself over the last couple of days. Had my account hacked and disabled by a faceless person who demanded money to give me back what they had stolen from me, it have it deleted permanently. First off, I don't even think I realized how much the mountain community on here has kept me going and motivated to push forward, even on my darkest days. I've certainly dealt with depression, as many have, and all of the incredible friends and connections I've made through Instagram, has helped me out of the very dark place I was in, right after my Dad died. Sharing your emotions publicly can be terrifying. But having this outlet and feeling so supported that I have been able to be vulnerable and pour my heart out to people that actually care about my struggles and my triumphs, has been truly life changing. The thought of losing that was pretty devastating to me. Writing down the words that I could never say to me Dad, but wish I had, has brought me small sense of healing. There are a lot of amazing people out there that truly care about my journey to honor my Dad, and I didn't want to lose that. I appreciate and value every beautiful comment and message. On another note, it has also made me realize how foolish and naive I was to fall for a fraudulent email that I thought was legitimately from Instagram. This ultimately ended in a hacker taking over my account, changing all my login info and holding it for ransom. It's unfortunate that we can't be trusting of people, but the reality of it is, there are some crappy people out there, and we have to protect ourselves. It feels so violating knowing someone has access to all of your private messages, photos and words, and they want money to return it. Luckily there are for more compassionate people out there that can band together to provide love and support. I definitely experienced this first hand, so thank you again to all of you out there who reported this, messaged me and made me feel like I'm supported on my journey, Instagram or not ❤ 📸: @kdpeakbagger

All my wildest dreams brought together. A gentle reminder that kindness is the best weapon against bullies, it is the key to compassion in front of incomprehension, it is usually the best way to act in all life situations. Someone’s criticizing you? Stay calm, be kind Someone’s on your back? Smile and be kind Someone’s talking sh* about you? Ignore it, and be kind to that person Because at the end of the day, these people are doing it either because they are frustrated, they look for attention, or cause they’re jealous. Fight negativity with kindness, you’ll always win.

We‘re still so stoked about how beautiful and diverse nature can be. Walking through the red crater definitely felt a bit like walking on another planet. Although our feet were definitely itching we didn’t climb the summit because we want to respect the holy places of the Maori culture. 🗻 . . . #adventurethatislife #stayandwander #roamtheplanet #exploringtheglobe #travel #neverstopexploring #welivetoexplore #wanderfolk #letsgosomewhere #liveauthentic #travellife #travelpic #travelblog #vanlife #liveoutdoors #thegreatoutdoors #wearewild #keepitwild #adventureanywhere #homeiswhereyouparkit #exploremore #newzealand #NZMustDo #newzealandguide #travelnewzealand #earthpixnz #epictravels #tongariro #mtngauruhoe

From childhood’s hour I have not been As others were—I have not seen As others saw—I could not bring My passions from a common spring— From the same source I have not taken My sorrow—I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone— And all I lov’d—I lov’d alone— Edgar Allan Poe

Il y a un an je partais pour un voyage duquel je ne suis jamais vraiment revenu. 2 mois à parcourir le Chili, l'Argentine et même le Sud Lipez (Bolivie), dans des décors sublimes mêlant lacs, lagunes colorées, montagnes, glaciers, forêts et déserts. Beaucoup de moments que je n'oublierai jamais et qui m'ont changé à jamais. C'est aussi à ce moment-là que la photographie a repris une importance considérable dans ma vie, malgré un vol d'appareil photo qui fut difficile à digérer... Mais la beauté incroyable de ces pays a pris le dessus et je ne peux que vous encourager à vous aussi mettre de l'argent de côté, et prendre le temps de découvrir la région de vos rêves !

She still has a lot of fears. Fear of uncertain things and a #fearofmissingout She wants to absob every part of the world she is experiencing. Either it’s big or small. I was describing Deli the other day and realized am describing my dog or myself? We all have the same doubts sometimes and none of us is fearless. We exaggerate some things in our minds when we are not certain how we should do it and that's when the fear comes - from uncertainty. I know for sure that if someone would scream at me saying how stupid I am by being scared of some things I wouldn't move beyond it. And I’m trying to calm Deli down by petting her when she sees what scares her. I’m not trying to stop her barking by shouting on her and making her being scared of me even more. Even if sometimes it would be more convenient to stop the bad behavior immediately it wouldn't solve the problem in the long term. I try to be as patient as I can and with a professional dog trainer guidance calm her down with a special trans touching technique right before she sees something ’uncertain’. We both need a lot to learn. And we go to the intense dog training course with her to prepare her for the upcoming trip to #Zakopane2019 I know it will be amazing!! We went there together with Justinas 3 year ago and it will be epic to come back there with a dog. I think she will love it too as she is a fan of wild places. See the link in bio 🔗 how our trip looked like 3 years back. 😍 What do you want us marvelous to broadcast for you from our trip?? . . . . . #traveltag #outdoor_mentality #longwelive #backpackersglobe #outdoorsociety #inspiringwanderers #indefinitedestination #travelinspirations #dogofinstaworld #dogofinsta #westsiberianlaika #iadopted #dogaddicted #wearewild #livewylder #goatworthy #mydogismy #teamtravel #mydogist #travelcouplelife #traveltag #thetravelleague #pawsthatwander #capturedifferent #wildvisuals #neverleavethedogbehind #igwoof #instatravelblog

Yesterday we celebrated the day we adopted Finnick! He wasn't a traditional adoption. He was originally going to be a companion dog for my mom but it didn't work out and they couldn't find another home for him. I vividly remember the day we said we would take him. We had been going through a particularly difficult family situation that was causing me a lot of anxiety. Finnick quickly became my sidekick that would lick my salty tears, cuddle me when I couldn't sleep, and make me laugh when I was down. We may have adopted him but he healed our hearts and brought happiness through a very dark time.

Have you ever struggled to put a price on your freelance work or find it hard valuing yourself? 🤔 - We did. We learned the lesson the hard way and wound up overworking ourselves creating a website for less than minimum wage. The financial strain became overbearing and we ultimately lost passion for the project. Not fun for us or our client. - Important lesson learned: ALWAYS ALWAYS value your timeand effort, no matter how small or easy the project it. Your time and effort is worth it NO MATTER WHAT. - With love, Brenden & Demeris - #livefolkindonesia #indobucketlist #exploreindonesia #wonderfulindonesia #indonesia_vacations #javascenery #exploreeastjava #eastjavaroamer #theeastjava #mtijen #wildvisuals #wearestillwild #findyouradventure #wearewild #exploretocreate #exploreshareinspire #modernoutdoors #osprey #adventureculture #packpackersglobe #treadedtravels #schooloftravel #worldnomads #simplyadventure #adventureislife #getlostnow #globewanderer #travelpassport #wearewild #adventureenthusiasts
