MAK ON INSTAGRAM
Today I published the blog post I wrote for @bound.for.nowhere covering the first half of August. We’ve long dreamed of seeing @visitnovascotia with our own eyes and still find myself thinking of it everyday. Drawing this flag might need to be the start of a new tradition. Each place we go, I will draw the flag.
Everyone dreams of what they will be like when they grow up. For me, I always wanted to just grow up to make 10 year old MAK proud of grown up MAK. This far I think I’m doing 10 yr old me proud 🤙🏼
Went shopping for a new home at @overlandexpo and decided we’ve out grown our truck by half a million times so I guess this is the only logical step up for us #canthidemoney 😳
All the @kitkat pictured here are now gone. And I miss them. Pro tip: when in Canada eat all the KitKats you can get your paws on. #canadiankitkats ❤️ #notsponsoredjustlove
Team girl squad out to break hearts and beat you at bowling as we repeatedly say “Don’t worry, we’re terrible at bowling” Huge thank you to the empty pizza tray for capturing the crew. #35mm
This is the second time we’ve stayed in this house to enjoy to union of two people we love. Feels right that it’s now commemorated in the form of an illustration and tee shirts ❤️ Congratulations to @sarahnolaws & @das_waffel and @thelawbridal thanks for commissioning me #2wafflesinlove

Yesterday evening we revisited a spot that we saw as we left the southeast earlier in the year. Last time, it was summer, the air was warm and we were there for sunrise. This time it’s late fall, the air is cold and blustery, and we watched the sunset. Even though this place looks very different from earlier this summer, Max Patch always renders us absolutely speechless.
Since being on the road with Lando we’ve started having daily tailgate parties. These usually consists of us sitting on the tailgate (now wrapped in blankets, eating chocolate, sipping a beverage and talking about our day long after the sun goes down. I hope you have your own little tailgate party tonight. Happy casual Friday my friends! ~ Ps if you have not entered our holiday giveaway with @grandtrunkgoods @brewdrkombucha & @mountainkhakis go 3 posts back to the picture of Owen and I in the hammock for entry details ❤️
Early in August we left the US to start our loop through the Canadian Maritime provinces. I finally sat down and wrote about our first half of August when we went to @destinationnb @tourismpei and @visitnovascotia. Saw some of the most mind blowing sunsets, got locked out of our truck on a Friday night on a beach, and slept feet away from feeding whales. Link in the bio if you care to read about it 🤙🏼
This is a picture of us spending over $7 a gallon for gas at a remote gas station in Labrador. We each wept a single tear over how much it cost to before pressing further into the great white north. We needed every drop that was in Lando’s tank to make it to the next gas station. Turns our that gas had traveled just as far as he had to get there. #35mm #talesfromtheroad
This weekend we braved extreme mud (see next the next image, it’s not even the worst of it), freezing temperatures and a day of hard rain for a killer weekend at @overlandexpo east. It was well worth it to spend the weekend with new and old friends and seeing some of Overlanding’s finest. Oh and we met Eli, United We Roam #102 ❤️ our first keytag we’ve reunited with in the wild! Hugs and photos immediately ensued.
Something exciting to come next week. In the meantime this is where we will be ❤️ Actually we’ll be at @Overlandexpo but you know what I mean ~ @grandtrunkgoods
I frequently find myself saying “Wow, we lead a life of luxury don’t we?!” It’s always dripping in sarcasm and usually in reference to a scene like this one. 🤦🏼♀️ Owen and the over all state of our life in this photo will forever give me a good chuckle. #owenlivinghisbestlife
We hear the phrase “do it while your still young” a lot in reference to our lifestyle choices. It’s always being said with the kindest of intentions, but it honestly makes us so sad to hear. Because when they say “do it while your young” I hear “do what makes you happy while you still can”. I don’t believe that there should ever be an expiration date on your happiness, your dreams, or your passions. You just have to want it, and be willing to work hard for whatever that is. Hard work is what got us here and hard work is what will keep us doing what makes us happy.
LIVING. WORKING. TRAVELING
