Most cities we visit offer an overwhelming amount of activities and places to visit, so much so, that we often find ourselves making compromises in order to cover the places we’re most interested in.
This was not the case for Bishkek where to-do-lists are best tossed out the window.

At first glance, the Kyrgyz capital doesn’t appear to offer much in terms of attractions, but we quickly discovered this is the kind of place that you need to experience – sit back, relax, and see where it takes you. It’s only when you linger in Bishkek and start chatting with expats and locals, that you begin to discover that this city is home to a whole slew of quirky sights, trendy cafes, relaxing parks, underrated attractions, and imposing monuments.

Bishkek won us over in a matter of days and by the end of our visit we understood why so many travellers choose to linger here and others find a way to call it home. But now on to the sightseeing; in this post I’m going to show you 15 things to do in Bishkek on your visit:

One of the most pleasant surprises of my recent trip to Emilia-Romagna, Italy was visiting the Enzo Ferrari Museum. Typically museums are not really my thing; I prefer to be out and about wandering a destination on foot, devouring local dishes, and checking out markets. Now that I’ve had a bit of time to reflect on my visit, I realize that one of the main reasons I enjoyed the Enzo Ferrari Museum so much is that it is not your typical museum. Come find out what makes this museum unique and worth visiting:

If for some strange reason I was forced to eat only five different cuisines for the rest of my life, Italian food would be right at the top of that list. It may be hard to believe, considering I’ve turned into a bit of a foodie, but there was a time during my teenage years where my list of preferred foods consisted of only pizza, lasagna, pasta, ribs and cheesecake. Basically, 75% of what I liked was Italian food prepared Canadian style. Salad? Forget about it! Rice? Yuck!

It is funny how your taste buds evolve as you get older. These days I couldn’t fathom visiting a country and not diving deep into its local cuisine. Just a few weeks ago I had the opportunity to revisit Italy for the second time, this time travelling to the region of Emilia-Romagna. I couldn’t help but chuckle at how my teenage self would be dancing on the ceiling with excitement over the anticipation of eating freshly prepared pasta. Even though my palate has expanded, my excitement for Italian food hasn’t waned a bit.

Two years ago Audrey and I visited Italy for the first time and we couldn’t believe how much better Italian food is in Italy compared to anywhere else in the world. The Italian food I was having at home was like cardboard compared to what I ate in Italy. Now that I mention it, pasta literally does come out of a cardboard box more often than not when served in Canada. In Italy, though, it is all about fresh ingredients, time-tested recipes and big meals shared with friends and family. Wolfing down your food isn’t an option and thank heavens for that. We tried hard to find a bad cappuccino, a lackluster plate of pasta, an inferior risotto; we failed. The food is just that good.

Now come join us as we give you an overview of our time in Emilia-Romagna including our travel and dining experiences.

Last year Audrey and I were fortunate enough to visit Spain for the first time. With limited time in the country, we keyed in on Madrid and Barcelona and really enjoyed both cities, however, we left Spain feeling as though we had only scratched the surface of what the country has to offer.
With this in mind when we had the opportunity to head back to Spain and visit a different region (Costa Brava) we jumped at the opportunity. We’re realizing as of late that we enjoy a slower pace of travel and we are wanting to spend more time in nature, eating slow food and really immersing ourselves in local culture. Costa Brava, the Catalan ‘wild coast’ situated in the coastal region of northeastern Spain, offered exactly that!
For those who fancy relaxing sailing trips, fresh seafood, inviting vineyards, adventurous hot air balloon rides and slow dining join us as we share our journey from Cadaqués to Girona featuring all of the travel and food highlights in between.

Being nomadic and traveling nearly 365 days of the year is in many ways a dream job for me. However, one thing that I really miss about being back home in Canada is having the opportunity to follow sports throughout the year. When I had the opportunity to attend the World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan, the dormant sports junkie inside of me jumped at the opportunity.

The World Nomad Games are a sports and cultural event held in Cholpon-Ata, Kyrgyzstan, and they are an attempt to preserve and promote nomadic culture and traditions throughout Central Asia. This was only the second year the event was held, yet it featured 23 sports and drew athletes from over 40 different countries.

The following post will share some of the highlights of the World Nomad Games through photos and videos.…/world-nomad-games-kyrgyzstan
