Béatrice grew up in Montreal's suburbs, but her thirst for adventure pushed her to leave the family home at just 16, to move to the big city. She is slightly (very) obsessed with Australia, but wouldn't say no to any destination, especially if white sand beaches are involved. She drinks a little too much coffee, loves to cook, and spends her summers in music festivals.
Being born and raised in Vancouver, BC (a rarity around these parts!), my first travel experiences were all long road trips with the fam. We would drive through the Rockies to visit family in Alberta, spend weeks camping down in Oregon and California, explore the interior of BC and all the islands off the coast. These trips were filled with lots of tantrums, pulled over cars, "I'm boooooored"'s and "Are we theeeeeeere yet?"'s, coloring books, pit stops, karaoke sessions and many an ice cream cone. They're some of my favorite memories and since then the travel spark has been in me full-force. My first overseas adventure was a school trip to the Greek Islands in Gr. 10 - and I've never looked back.
Gaël loves coffee, brunch, playlists, mornings, sunrises, photo collage, roadtrips, the world wild web, technological stuff, airplanes, boats, libraries, Wired magazine, yoga, pandas, climbing, confetti, but mostly, and above it all, travelling.
Having grown up in Guinée and Zambia, Africa holds a special place in her heart and she has been to South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Mauritius and Madagascar. Her personal travels have also taken her to Argentina, Uruguay, Chili, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Mexico, Cuba, Turkey, Germany, France, the Netherlands, the UK, Spain, Australia and all over the United States.
Heather is a West Coast transplant living in Vancouver and she still manages to get teary-eyed at the sight of mountains. She has travelled to over 30 countries and Canada is still her favourite. Next on her bucket list are the southern parts of South America and the northern parts of North America.

Marie likes to learn foreign words, cook with friends, dance, and plan her next road trip. You can see her riding her bike or running along the streets of Montréal, drawing in a park or wandering around flea markets. When she grows up, she wants to be a mermaid.
