Our first winter living in the Okanagan Valley is well underway and this year we're doing a polar bear dip in Kelowna at Okanagan Lake. Okanagan Lake in the winter typically doesn't freeze over (at least not completely) so we were able to jump right in. This was our first time swimming in the Canadian winter - well, kind of swimming lol, and it was pretty damn amazing. We're loving living in Kelowna BC and enjoying our Canadian winter, housesitting and living our lives day by day, exploring BC safely, and eating delicious vegan food like what we got today from The Vegetarian Butcher Canada here in Kelowna.

Oh, and we talk our #newyears resolutions too!

➤ ABOUT US: Hi! We’re Nick & Raychel, the couple behind the blog Not Luxe - where we write travel guides & help people open their eyes to alternative living, whether that be teaching English online, moving to Cambodia, taking advantage of working holiday visas (like in Australia) or building a DIY stealthy camper van to live & work on the road. Right now, we’re living the van life and travelling safely in our own backyard of British Columbia in Canada.

Our goal here is to bring you weekly content where we hope to inspire you to break free & live the life you desire. On Thursdays, we talk everything from finances to minimalism to working online to mindset and on Sundays, we post a weekly vlog of our daily lives. We hope you join us on our journey to see the world, save money, live minimally, and most importantly, have fun.
