Come explore in our own backyard
When I had a dream to create my own blog, I could never put my finger on just what it should be about. Greg encouraged me to better fit the blog to our lives, (I always wanted to be a Disney World blogger, but let’s face it – I live no where near Disney!) So instead, why not create something that I can keep up on my own without feeling frustrated? Why not, explore our own backyard.
Greg is from the United States, he moved here in 2017 to be with me and he is constantly wanted to try new experiences here in the Maritimes (or as he calls himself – a “merry-timer”). Some days, I almost think that he is more of a Maritimer than I am!
Join us on our fun adventures as we explore different places throughout the Maritimes and on our vacations. We will take you to all of the fun places we can in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and hopefully Prince Edward Island! If there are any locations or restaurants that you would like to see featured, please send us a note on the “Contact Us!” page. We always want to hear your suggestions and see new places!
