Nunavut: Experience the Inuit Way of Life in the Northernmost Inhabited Place in the World
There is an arctic that lives in the mind of those who have not yet been. There are ideas, concepts, trends and theories reported about the arctic everyday. But making the trip to Nunavut, experiencing the people, travelling the land, seeing the wildlife— these are what fill us with reverence and awe, kindness and warmth, humility and sense of achievement. The arctic is a lived experience, one that can’t be appreciated, until you’ve been.
Yukon: Find Inspiration in the Iconic Wilderness Parks and a Dynamic First Nations Culture of this Northern Territory
Whether it’s the people you meet, the wildlife you encounter or the wide open spaces you explore, the phrase, “Larger than Life '' applies to most everything in the Yukon.

With its original people crossing the Bering Land Bridge in the last Ice Age and it playing host to the legendary Klondike Gold Rush, Yukon is a place for those with big imaginations, hungry hearts and unique character.

Ontario: The Dynamic Culinary Scene in Canada’s Downtown
In a lot of ways, Toronto can be whatever you want it to be. It’s one of the most multicultural cities in the world, has a food scene that mirrors its diverse inhabitants, and a skyline that can steal your heart even in the brisk November winds. For us, Toronto was magic. It was re-capturing the joys of childhood holidays, discovering new foods, and by extension, new cultures, and honestly exploring how the concept of diversity, a tenet of Canadians’ identity, actually looks and feels in action.
Prince Edward Island: Exploring Canada's Foodie Paradise
PEI punches way above its weight class in all the right ways. Food isn’t just something to eat here; it’s a way of life. Whether fishing or farming, much of what occupies PEI resident’s brains and hearts is about what will satisfy their stomachs. But they don’t do it alone. Family comes first here, and on the island, there’s no way to separate the interwoven braids of food, family and music. And who would want to?
Awesome podcast for new comers!
I migrated to Canada in late 2018 and have been looking for a chance to visit different provinces of Canada. This is such an awesome show that motivates me to plan ahead a trip after the pandemic!! I’m really interested to see the far north. Thanks for creating these episodes which enrich my knowledge in Canadians’ lives. ❤️
Thank you so much for bringing your experiences to us. This is a wonderful podcast for anybody who is looking for recommendations for where to travel next. And like you two said, you won’t even need a passport to do it. My wife and I love to travel and this will be a wonderful tool to listen again to, to decide where are next Canadian adventure will take us.
It’s wonderful to hear such lovely things being said about PEI. We sometimes forget how lucky we are to live in such a place but it’s always nice when people “from away”😉 love it just as much as the locals. Come back anytime🦞
