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 8 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.
At the beginning of 2017 we moved to Canada and took the long way from Toronto to Vancouver (via Florida Keys, Texas and the US West Coast! See our full USA road trip route here). We’re now Canadian permanent residents and I don’t think I could be any more in love with where we get to live.
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. 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.
