Our Story

World Adventurists was created by Debbie and Darcy Fettback, two avid travellers and parents of four little adventurers, based in Vancouver, BC.

Neither Darcy or I did much traveling growing up. It was not until we had been dating for three years that we decided to go to Mexico on a sunny, relaxing getaway. Mexico is where our travel bug really started and we have not looked back ever since. It was in Mexico that we realized that there really must be more to life than the typical 9-5 and what we like to call the CANADIAN dream. After that fun in the sun, our new lifestyle began to change into “work to live, not live to work”. We only have so much time here on earth, and life is definitely not meant to be lived in one place. 

We feel that we have been very fortunate, having had the chance to travel to many places in Europe, Africa, Mexico and even within Canada and North America. We are always busy trying to figure out where we want to go to next when time and budget allows. We also want to show you that an adventure does not have to be to only far-off places all of the time. On World Adventurists, you’ll find adventures that are big, small and everything in between. We also hope to inspire you to explore more of your hometown, and to come and explore Vancouver, BC, the place that we love to call home. 

To us, travel means exploring different cultures, cities and ways of life. Travel means to continually put yourself outside of your comfort zone and try something new. Travel is also a means of education; definitely not the kind of education that can be obtained from having your bum in a chair and a textbook in front of your face. While we do value our education, there is a lot more to be discovered out in the world.

Travel allows you to experience, feel and genuinely understand.

We decided to post our travel stories as a testament to how powerful travel is and what an impact it can have on your life. Even if you are not an avid traveler, we hope you are able to find a story that inspires you.

Take a chance. Be Inspired. Travel.
