Trying to live life with sandy toes and laughter

At Home By Myself With You…

Saw a great movie last night at the Vancouver International film Festival. And turns out it was made for something like $41,989. Odd number but they funded it by asking people to donate their pocket change. The result was movie that was written knowing it would be very low budget but it didn’t feel like it. Probably because the acting (and the writing) was awesome… from the kooky old lady neighbour to the main characters it just had a great pace and balance of comedic timing, chemistry and emotion when needed (love a movie that can keep you laughing 80% of the time and then throw in a fun turned serious moment that made me pretend I had something in my eye).

Not sure if they started with the intent to use extreme examples (fear of going outside) to illustrate how we can let little fears guide, control and shape our lives… or did they happen into that due to budget constraints meaning the entire movie had to be filmed in one location? Either way the story is so timely right now as we become more connected with handhelds, social media and the Internet and at the same time less connected, in our own created world and removed from people (How much do people use their phones to actually talk to another person?). Intentional or not it made me think :}

GO See It!

Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
Our last leg of @route16_ca was gorgeous. Lots of fun corners, surrounded by forest, towering mountains, and ocean. We stopped at the North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward. Totally worth it, do the tour if you visit. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #travelnorthernbc #motorcycle #roadtrip #historic #britishcolumbia #route16 #suzukitu250x #motoroadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute
Our best riding day was a side trip through the Nass Valley. Rode through a landscape of lava rocks, forests, and mountains, while weaving through some fun corners, stopping at First Nations villages and hot springs. We ended up back on the Pacific Ocean, so close to Alaska. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #roadtrip #roadtrippin #moto #motorcycle #suzukitu250x #nassvalleylavabeds #hotsprings #beatifulbc #travelnorthernbc #roadtrip #britishcolumbia #route16 #nassvalley #nassvalleyhotsprings #watchyourhead
Our cabin in #smithers was one of the many highlights on @route16_ca A view of #hudsonbaymountain and an adorable cabin in the woods... #explorebc #motorcycleroadtrip #motorcycle #roadtrip #route16 #travelnorthernbc #cabininthewoods
A little hazy as we left Prince George and started our journey along #route16 Met a bunch firefighters from around the world that were staying at our hotel in PG. So grateful for everything they are doing to save our forests. #motorcycleroadtrip #suzukitu250x #2000km #1200miles #northofthewall #motorcycle #roadtrip #thankyou #grateful #lovetrees
