Our Current Lineup
Seeker Bucket List: (11-30 map markers)
A list of things to do centered around a city, region, country or theme. Examples :
Looking for stunning tropical destinations that won’t break the bank? Join the club. It seems like a truly Utopian dream: a tropical paradise that offers all the trimmings — minus all the exorbitant prices. Well, I’ve spent the last decade of my life chasing the dream (of living in a sarong on an idyllic stretch […]
Is it just us, or would skipping to New Year’s Eve be ideal right now? We’re already envisioning how wild this year’s end will be. There’s no denying that some cities around the world have a thing for NYE. Usually, a sensational backdrop and tons of fireworks do the trick, but there’s more to it than that. The best cities to celebrate NYE in […]
Ultimate Seeker Bucket List (Over 30 map markers):
A long-form list of things to do centered around a city, region, country or theme. Examples:
Montréal may only be Canada’s second largest city, but its cool and eclectic mix of culture, history, and art make it the first stop on most curious and adventurous travelers’ bucket list. The city is on an island. Street signs and menus are in both English and French. The drinking age is 18. There are […]
Japan: one of the most fruitful (and beautiful) nations on Earth. While other travel destinations may have just a single city, mountain, museum, castle, or cuisine to draw travellers and tourists in, there are thousands of things to do in Japan. Plus some. There’s seriously no end to what Japan has to offer, and it’s possibly […]
Thinking of heading to a Carnival in 2021, but not sure which one to choose? Here’s a run down of the most popular and interesting carnivals around the world, as well as how to know which carnival is perfect of each type of traveler. Best for: Lovers of Indigenous Dance Carnival 2021 Dates: January 10th […]
Expert Guide: Region
Expert advice on a city or region. List or narrative. Examples:
Deprived of the sun and warmth for six months or so each year, Toronto takes its spring and summer very seriously. Perhaps that’s why Torontonians are so energetic and full of life by the time the good weather finally rolls around. There’s no better way to enjoy summer in Toronto than from one of its […]
It’s universally understood that each city has its own sunset. As evening falls over, Barcelona is filled with a special kind of magic: the Catalan capital is one of the most photogenic cities on the planet, a statement that holds especially true when the sun begins the set and the sky is lit up with […]
One of the best ways to explore Sydney is on a bike. On two wheels, you can peek into the hidden nooks and crannies of the city and find some of its best treasures. This cycling Sydney city tour took me bridge-hopping past playthings of the rich and famous, transported me to quirky one-of-a-kind stores, […]
Expert Guide: Lifestyle
Expert advice on a style of travel (budget, backpacking, luxury, solo, etc). Examples:
It’s no secret that Iceland is an incredibly expensive country to travel to; Iceland is actually the 4th most expensive country in the world based on consumer price indexes, and a lot of that is due to those sky-high food costs. The average meal can be anywhere between $20-$40 per person and a coffee can […]
Malawi is one of those countries that a perfectly educated and worldly person can get through their entire life having never thought about. It’s fair to say that this landlocked African nation hasn’t exactly got a lead role on the global stage. If anything, it’s the kid in class who has to play background tree […]
Sleeping in airports should be considered a sport. Hell, for our purposes, it pretty much is. Maybe your flight got cancelled because of a monster snowstorm, you decided to take vouchers to be bumped from an oversold flight, or you have no concept of time and missed it altogether. Whatever your story is, one fact […]
