Outside My Front Door on Contented Traveller


A lot of you have asked what it’s like to live in Nanaimo. I wrote a post about Nanaimo for our friends at Contented Traveller. When you’ve read it and seen the pictures, you will want to live here too. And though I can’t promise you a Canadian passport, you’re all invited to come visit.

Hi, I’m Jane, founder and chief blogger on My Five Acres. I’ve lived in six countries and have camped, biked, trekked, kayaked, and explored in 50! At My Five Acres, our mission is to inspire you to live your most adventurous life and help you to travel more and more mindfully.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been to Gabriola, or at least, not since I was a kid. I have met at least three people in Nanaimo who commute from there, which sounds like about as lovely a commute as I can possibly imagine.
