After a failure with Dempster Highway we headed for Dawson City, feeling sad and disappointed.
Day 3. Mezadin Lake Provincial Park – Tagish, Yukon. 924 km The night was cold in the really windy. But I have used a little trick that I’ve learned from more experienced travelers. If you put a car between the wind and your tent, it will create a wind shadow for your tent, and the wind will not bother you as much. And it really saved my night. I slept like a baby!
This was supposed to be a very special trip for me. First, I have been dreaming about traveling North for many years. Second, I took my vacation during my dad’s visit. I have not seen him since I moved to Canada two years ago. Is there a better way to spend time with your dad, who is just as passionate about traveling by car as me, than taking a two-week trip together to some of the world’s most amazing places?

I am very impressed with beauty of nature in British Columbia. I could never think that spectacular views of mountains could be so abundant within big city; that so many lakes, waterfront parks and trails could be just a 20 minute drive from busy downtown with skyscrapers. I try to explore and discover more of it whe I have a slightest chance.
I keep exploring Vancouver area. Autumn is very rainy in Vancouver, a sunny day on a weekend is a treasure that has to be used wisely!
I have always dreamed about big journeys and adventures. I have been always amazed by ship navigators, long haul truck drivers and everyone else who go far. I have watched and read the “Long Way Round” and all other Charley Boorman’s adventures countless times, I could not stop reading the amazing book “Long Ride Home” and many travel and overlanding stories and blogs. I have always dreamed to go on a big trip. The life has given me a chance…
