About Us

You’re probably wondering why that website name is so weird. Well, there is a story behind it, and it’s quite personal (but you also may consider it lame, no grudges). The word “couple” used earlier wasn’t accidental — we’re an actual couple from British Columbia (hence the North in the name) who decided to share a lifelong journey between the two of us. 

We’re not telling you this to bore you to death but to let you know that we perfectly understand the nuances of traveling as a couple. ;)

Traveling changes people for the better and makes them more tolerant and open-minded. That’s why our website is not only about the places we visit but also about the local cultures and traditions. We want to show our readers that the world is a unique and diverse place, and there’s so much to learn from other cultures.

We also believe that responsible tourism is very important, which is why we always try to find ways that will allow us to minimize our negative impact on the environment and local communities — and we’ll be glad to share some of these tips with you!

Hopefully, our little story inspired you to start planning your own adventure. And if not, just keep browsing — there is definitely a corner of this world that will blow your mind!
