Hello fellow Canadian Traveller!

DSCN0666Hi there, my name is Kendrick and I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I’ve always love traveling but have always thought it was too expensive and would require saving up money for a long time before I can go anywhere.

One day, a friend of mine introduced to me the concept of points and miles and I was blown away at the possibilities! The truth of the matter is, travel isn’t as expensive as I thought!

The final piece of the puzzle that made my decision to travel long term was when I attended a live filming of “Make Your Dream Trip A Reality” by Chris Guillebeau. I learned that it was normal for people to dream of travelling long term and that you should just go for it!

I quickly went to work paying off my debt as quickly as possible while saving up money and building up all my points and miles balance. My goal was to travel around the world for one year, visiting all 7 Wonders of the World, 7 Wonders of Nature and all my bucket list dream destinations. I wanted to see and experience all the amazing sights and cultures that our world has to offer.

By September 14, 2016, I left Vancouver Canada to embark on a journey of a lifetime. Along the way, not only did I see so many amazing places but I also made tons of friends from around the world, many of whom I still stay in touch with to this day.

But the biggest impact of the journey was definitely an internal one. It was then I realized that as long as you are willing to work hard for it, you can live the life that you want and you don’t need to follow the conventional path that society dictates you should live. (Unless you want to live the conventional lifestyle of course)

Come join me as we embark, explore and experience what the world has to offer.

Feel free to email me at kendricktravels@gmail.com if you have any questions, requests, suggestions or comments. I try and reply to everyone; though, please be patient because it can take several days for me to get back to you.

I don’t sugar coat my information and I don’t mind offending people if it means telling the truth.

I am very blunt and I tell it how it is. I don’t work with advertisers and my message has not been influenced by any third party group. If I do promote another company, then I make sure I also use that company to help me with my travel needs.
