Is really excited to share a big project +Audrey Bergner and I have been working on now for several weeks. Recently we stayed in Paris for 10 days and worked feverishly on completing a city video guide. We've finally finished the editing and now we're excited to share with you our most ambitious city guide to date: 50 Things to do in Paris

Have you been to Paris before? Is it somewhere you want to go? Can you think of anything we missed out on in our guide?

Last summer, while in New York City, we had the chance to try the world famous Katz’s Deli meat sandwiches; however, given our crunch for time we didn’t film the experience. One year later we found ourselves back in New York City with ample time to revisit Katz’s and film the behemoth Pastrami and Corned Beef sandwiches. Find out what makes these sandwiches and restaurant a New York City institution:

The Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, Central Park and Times Square … anybody that is considering a trip to NYC likely has all these landmarks on their itinerary. For some, seeing sights like these is more than enough to satisfy their curiosity, but others seek out the unusual and weird whenever they travel.

New York City has plenty of offbeat attractions hidden throughout its maze-like streets, but if you are paralyzed by all the options that a simple web search will turn up, the following activities will add the spice that will make your Big Apple getaway truly unforgettable.

When the opportunity came to hike up one of the most impressive cliff faces on earth we seized the opportunity. The Amphitheatre, an impressive geographical feature of Northern Drakensberg, dwarfs Yosemite’s famous El Capitan by being more than ten times its size!

The 5-6 hour hike (including return trip) would be classified as lower-intermediate from my point of view. Many parts of the hike are beginner level; however, certain aspects including parts of the path not being well-defined, having to ascend and/or descent 21 meter chain ladders and a few rougher patches add a layer of challenge.

We made it as far as the chain ladders before our ‘fear of heights’ rendered us having a quiet lunch while the rest of the group continued on. Had we made it to the top we would have been able to witness the magnificent Tugela Falls. Sometimes it is good to push through your comfort zone; however, it is equally important to realize when something just isn’t a good fit. In the end we were content we stopped where we did.

After finally arriving in Johannesburg after our mammoth trip from Toronto it might be reasonable to think we’d be sleeping and catching up on rest for at least an entire day. Nope. We hit the ground running by heading on safari the next morning. Our journey en route visit Kruger National Park was nearly a full-day drive. Along the way we visited Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre where we had the opportunity to learn more about wildlife rehabilitation and rescue efforts being made in South Africa. The biggest obstacle for wildlife in Africa is a devastating loss of habitat in tandem with human interference in the form of power lines, poisoning and trapping.

We had a chance to get up close and interactive with a number of different animals including lions, cheetahs, leopards, vultures and honey badgers to name just a few. Overall, it was an enriching educational experience for us and the perfect kind of introduction before we head out on safari.

I have to admit Luxembourg is a destination I knew very little about prior to arriving. However, after spending a few days exploring Luxembourg City I wish we would could have lingered for a while longer. The city itself is easy to negotiate on foot and offers many scenic vantage points where you can see the lower town with picturesque homes overlooking the river. We just released a video city guide with 10 things you should consider doing when in Luxembourg which you can view below:

Sometimes I really prefer a slower pace of travel than that of bustling cities. Somewhere where canals outnumber roads and pickles outnumber people. Such a place exists in Germany called Spreewald. Come join us as we share our stories, photos and videos from this quaint little town:

If you’re looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, Brooklyn and/or Queens heading to Governors Island in the summer is a great weekend escape in New York City. The 172-acre island is a family friendly spot where you can enjoy leisurely strolls, bicycle rides, street food and hammock time. Join us as we show you around!

If you gave me a list of only 10 more bucket-list travel experiences I could potentially have for the rest of my life, experiencing an African wildlife safari would be right near the top. After making the long bus journey from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park, I couldn’t believe this – once in a lifetime – experience was finally about to happen. Waking up at the crack of dawn, we boarded our Land Rover and drove off in the dark to the gates of Kruger National Park. It wasn’t long before we witnessed sunrise and our first animal encounter spotting prancing impalas.

The highlights of our first day of safari included spotting a pride of Lions including getting up close views of lioness affectionately licking her cubs and an Alpha male resting in the foreground. Lunchtime, was equally as eventful as I was bombed (shitted on) by two birds eager to grab scraps of our meal.

As the day progressed we spotted giraffes on a frequent basis. Two male giraffes fought swinging their heads violently at one another often landing direct blows to knees. Out of all the violent animal encounters I could have potentially witnessed, gazing at fighting giraffes was not something I would have ever anticipated.

The day ended with an epic sunset featuring a generous portion of crackers, cookies, cheese and wine. On the way back, when the sun had gone down, we used a flashlight to try and spot more animals. Our guide Lloyd, has an acutely trained eye and without his assistance we may have only spotted impalas ourselves 😉

While basing ourselves in Northern Drakensberg for several days we stayed on a lovely property (Amphitheatre backpackers) that branched off to an airstrip, river and isolated tree. After spending a bit of time in Johannesburg it was the perfect scenic retreat. These days I’m starting to feel more in touch with my roots and quiet remote areas are more appealing to me than sprawling cities.

In late December, roughly the halfway mark of our time in teacher’s college, we were bouncing ideas off of one another in terms of where we’d like to travel to as a graduation present for completing our degrees.

What completely shocked us was when we found a deal to Johannesburg, South Africa for $350 return from New York City. To put this price in perspective we typically are not able to fly anywhere in Canada (1-2 hour flights) for that kind of price. Immediately we pounced on it.

The two of us have visited five different continents together; however, we’ve yet to set food on African soil. South Africa, a destination visited recently by many travel bloggers, has long been on our radar. After waiting for nearly five months we’re now finished school and our adventures in South Africa have begun! We couldn’t be more excited!

We plan on doing an overland journey from Jo-Burg to Cape Town focusing primarily on outdoors adventures including wildlife safaris and hiking. Some of the top highlights we’re most excited about include having the opportunity to do an African wildlife safari at Kruger National Park and spending ample time in Cape Town.

We hope you’ll come along for the ride :)

Hi Samuel! I've just discovered the uses of Google+... I know, been living under a rock! Anyway, I just came across this post of yours. I've been taking classes on professional photography and seeing this beautifully balanced shot of yours inspires me to go even further. Good on you! So, have you put your feet on Australian soil yet? I used to be a Technical Writer, compiling user manuals and online help for different customised software... but, let's face it, I'm more of a creative type. I've been looking at online courses in travel writing and have been putting it off, but coming across your post by accident seems to be the push that I require! I'm going to check out your website/blog for more inspiration. PS: I went to Canada and the US about 18 months ago so I understand about the flight prices :)
