Who is That Adventurer?

We’re Hannah and Thom.

That Adventurer is about our outdoors adventures on the west coast of Canada with Elvis the Van (our self-converted Ford E150 that we lived in for 5 months).

We share a love of travelling and adventure. In the 5 years we’ve been together we’ve managed to fit in a lot of travel. In fact, one of our first dates was spending a weekend hitch hiking as far away from our university campus as possible in 36 hours.

Hannah started the blog after graduating back in 2013 and has documented all of our adventures together since then. Thom doesn’t appear in photos or videos, but he’s usually always there in the background helping to take and edit photos and videos.

When we first met we discussed countries we might like to move to one day. We both said “Canada!” and so, a few years later we made it happen.

We’re currently on a two year working holiday visa in Canada (find out how you can get one too!). We spent a year saving money whilst living in London, UK (not so easy) and are now hitting the road in a camper van (Elvis the Van!) as we travel through America and over to Canada’s west coast.

We’re budget travellers through and through. We don’t splurge on fancy restaurants or hotels. We find accommodation that’s affordable with out slumming it and often cook our own meals to save.

But most importantly we’re outdoors lovers. We love hiking, kayaking and Hannah in particular just likes wandering. It’s free entertainment no matter where you’re travelling.

We want to help you have the best adventure ever.

On That Adventurer, you’ll find photography and writing to light up your wanderlust. We’ll also pull together honest reviews and guides to restaurants, experiences and hotels we use along the way. Oh and plenty of guides full of tips we’ve learnt (probably the hard way) to help you get the most out of your trip.

Since we’ve moved to Vancouver most of our recent posts will be on the beauty that is British Columbia. If we’re only here for two years we’re determined to see as much of it as we can. And trust us, there’s one heck of a lot of beautiful places to see.

If Canada isn’t on your travel list then check out the list of places we have previously visited for some inspiration and guides.

Whatever you do, go and be That Adventurer.

  1. […] stop is a quick trip to the west and into Wales with Hannah from That Adventurer. To be more precise we’re heading to the home of England and Wale’s highest mountain Snowdon, […]

  2. Hi. All the post and place you travel seem breathtaking! It makes me want to just get up and go! 🙂 i was wondering do you travel alone? And do you travel for a living to write about it in a blog?:)

    1. Hey Jessica,

      Thanks for your comment, it’s so lovely to hear that this blog of mine makes you want to get up and go, as that’s exactly what I hope to achieve!

      I usually travel with my boyfriend, although have previously travelled alone too.

      I don’t travel for a living (although that’d be the dream!) I actually work in Digital Marketing full-time in London and just make sure I travel as much as I can at the weekends and with my annual leave. Whilst I don’t make any money from my blog, but I do get to do some very cool things (such as the try new restaurants, and experiences) which I wouldn’t get to do otherwise.

      If you’d like to know more, fire away 🙂 x

  3. Hi there!

    I absolutely love your work, you are living the dream. I recently just decided to take m travel/adventure blog seriously as well. But i need some guidance to point me into the right direction! What would you recommend me to do? How do i get sponsored? What do i need to develop to build the audience to increase the chances of travel opportunities?

    i would love to hear from you,

    Carpe Diem,

    Jack

    1. Hey Jack,

      Thanks so much for your comment, it’s lovely to hear you love what I’m doing.

      I currently work full time in an office job in london, so it’s not quite living the dream. I just use my annual leave allowances and weekends to travel as much as I can and explore new places.

      I started this blog almost two years ago and I’d say the best place to start is to build up asocial media following. Most of my readers found me through Twitter so I’d start there. Following and commenting on similar blogs is also a great way to get to know other bloggers and join in the community!

      Whilst I’m not sponsored as such, I have been lucky enough to go on some incredible trips, and try out fantastic new things (whether restaurants or snowboarding). I’m honestly not sure how the PR companies found me, but I’d hasard a guess that it was also through having a strong Twitter presence.

      I’d say just start chatting to people online (like it loooks like you are) and stick with it!

      Hope that helps a little, let me know if you want to know more 🙂 x

  4. Glad to have stumbled upon your blog! Off-the-beaten path travel is my prefered style. Really looking forward to reading more of your adventures for more inspiration!

    1. Thanks Ray!

  5. Hi Catherine!

    My name is Konstantinos and I am from flymble.com. Flymble is a platform which allows you to pay for your flight tickets in split monthly terms, making travelling possible anywhere, for everyone.

    Next week we will be officially launching the new, updated version of our website. Lots of tweaks and neat updates have been done to ensure the best user experience possible. We’re really excited!

    Since we are a startup we want to market our product from mouth to mouth. Mass marketing is not our strategy and we believe that if your product is great from the inside, word will get out.

    Would you therefore be interested in partnering with us? Possibly an article promoting our product? A good collaboration will ofcourse include a long-term relationship.

    I would love to get in contact with you to discuss any details!
    I’m available by email on kouzelisk@hotmail.com or by phone/whatsapp on +31652172198.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    All the best,

    Konstantinos Kouzelis

    1. Sorry, I completely messed up. I was looking to contact you directly!

  6. Hi Hannah!

    I just came across your blog while doing some googling about Grenoble, and I saw that you had lived here for 9 months awhile back! I just moved here last week from Canada on a whim, hoping to find somewhere to call home for the next year. I wondered though if you might have any resources on Grenoble, maybe some thoughts on how to best meet people in the city, things to do, how to access good hikes sans car, etc. I am also looking for maybe some of your general thoughts on the city itself if you wouldn’t mind a little chat. I chose Grenoble because I love the outdoors (mostly hiking, rock climbing, backpacking, camping, some skiing) but I am also open to exploring other French cities/towns if you have any recommendations! I booked accommodations for the first month here, but after that I am free as a bird.
    Hope to hear from you!

    All the best,
    Courtney
