Hello! Welcome to Storyteller Travel

Here at Storyteller Travel, we cover food, animals, and destinations from around the world. We love to travel and have covered much of our adventures. Of course, we have lots more planned.

What We Cover

This site is divided into the following sections:

  1. Nova Scotia Travel: We cover the best attractions in Nova Scotia with photos, maps and videos. These include lighthouses, beaches, and waterfalls. We were both born here – and love exploring our province.
  2. Africa Travel: This including wildlife, gorilla treks, and food. Learn about safari photography, wildlife binoculars, and other safari gear.
  3. Living Abroad: After being expats for six years, it kinda makes sense that we cover expat topics.
  4. Animals: We are both fascinated by the absurd world of animals. We cover the animals we’ve seen in the wild – and that are on our list of what we want to see.
  5. Gear: Good gear makes travel easier – and more fun. Some of our most popular posts include the best travel cameras, binoculars, and portable water filters. Bryan and Dena Haines

In 2009, we moved from Canada to Ecuador. Learn more about our Ecuador adventures and why we decided to move to Cuenca (sort of our back-story). In April 2015, we moved back to Canada. Here’s why.
We also write about GoPro photography, camping, and coffee.
