In this section you’ll find a variety of different media that I share regularly. Primarily this area will be populated with Photo Essays, but every once in a while I’ll share some travel video, made by either me or found during browsing. I’m hoping to eventually share some more Canadian music here as well.

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – Full Mountie – Lonely Planet in Saskatchewan

It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve managed to find a video I wanted to share. Totally my bad, I’ve been pretty preoccupied trying to sort out the next couple months of my life. To say I’ve been busy would be the biggest understatement of the decade. Thankfully there’s a light at the end of […]

Toronto-Skyline-Timelapse

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – Toronto Skyline Timelapse

I recently stayed at this incredible new hostel in Toronto called Planet Traveler. (A proper review is coming). To sumarize the stay. It’s incredible! Modern, eco friendly, and best of all has an amazing view of downtown Toronto from their rooftop patio & lounge. While I was catching up on photo edits & some serious […]

Photo Du Jour: The Ragged Falls, Ontario

During my recent trip through Algonquin Park I actually evolved from a regular human into a highly optimized photo taking robotic machine. While I was in my highly evolved state, I was able to hike several trails, including the trail up to Ragged Falls. The trail is surprisingly easy and well groomed, which makes it […]

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – Dorset Tower Time Lapse in Ontario

Ontario blew my mind. Those four words have been repeated countless times in the last week. I’ve been editing photos, video, and squeezing in writing as often as I can in order to show everyone what exactly I mean by that. I finally managed to find time to quickly edit this time lapse video of […]

Algonquin-Park in Autumn Ontario-Canoe Lake

Photo Du Jour: Algonquin Park’s Autumn Reflections

I recently finished a trip throughout the Algonquin Park, a beautiful and historical provincial park that has been named a national historic site. The history in the area is well worth a post on its own, and while I have started it, I am far from finished. I’m still on the road at the moment, […]

Tofino-Surf-Lifestyle

Sunday Canadian Travel Video – The Surf Lifestyle in Tofino BC

I’ve been on a real west coast stint as of lately with Fridays photo of Vancouvers Skyline and countless posts in the last couple months about British Columbia. So just to be consistent, I’ve decided to share a video by Tourism Canada of one of my favourite locations in Canada. Tofino is a surf town […]

Vancouver-Downtown-Skyline

Photo Du Jour – Downtown Vancouver Skyline

Since starting I Backpack Canada in 2009, I’ve had the opportunity to see some extraordinary places and meet countless other travel writers and bloggers. The community and sense of “family” that’sĀ developedĀ around the travel blogging industry initially caught me by surprise. It has now become my go-to when I have questions regarding everything from ethics, photography […]
