We've escaped to the wilderness & we're building our home at a cabin in the woods ... a phrase that was very fun to say in the beautiful fall weather in Canada BUT how are we coping with these cold, winter days? Here we were thinking that the renovations to our cabin were going to be our biggest challenge with this project. We've quickly learned that keeping warm *AND STAYING SANE* while living in the woods alone will be our biggest hurdle yet!
We've always envisioned moving into the woods by the lake and building our dream tiny cabin as a home base for us to come back to in between our international travels. We cannot wait to have a place to call our own!! This week we share our very Canadian morning routine of taking an ice bath in the lake (inspired by Yes Theory's recent episode with Wim Hof) , then move onto a neglected project of insulating the loft and paneling the ceiling. Then we're off to split wood to keep us warm and try to help keep some of our homeless warm too!

Who are we?
We're Eamon and Bec, a Canadian couple who previously lived and traveled full-time in our self converted Sprinter Van!! When the pandemic hit earlier this year we made the difficult decision to abandon our van in Africa and fly home to Canada. Now we're here... living at a cabin in the Canadian wilderness preparing for a cold, snowy winter ahead 🥶 .
Our goal here is to inspire you to chase after your own dreams! We hope to create a community of like-minded, positive individuals who will grow to love and support one another on their own journeys.

  • Well, as they say... you've got to do 1 thing a day that scares you! I legit didn't sleep the night before my first ice bath but I can safely report that it was just an incredible, invigorating experience that I will FOR SURE be doing again. What's something you want to do before the end of 2020?!? Oh also, if you're reading this 👋 , we love and appreciate you and if you could take two seconds to "like" this video 👍 that would go a long way for us x

  • This is our first winter living in our fabulous retirement community of Bobcaygeon. We left Brisbane a week before flights were suspended. I am 65. I don’t watch tv. We didn’t have Netflix until our daughter and husband flew in from Canmore for Christmas. I have become addicted to USworlds,. Started with British comedians and last week morphed to you. You two are totally adorable and I am SO enjoying your journey. Bec’s laugh: oh my❤️❤️
