Meet the hosts

Ashley and Mike are a couple of thirty-somethings who are hitting the pause button on what most would call “regular life” to chase down a calling of their very own; to explore this beautiful country called Canada, and connect to what it truly means to be a Canadian.

 

Always making the most out of their down time by creating their own adventures, big and small, Ashley and Mike love exploring their backyard, the Okanagan Valley, and bring that same enthusiasm to exploring others' backyards.
