SEEK | EXPLORE | SHARE | INSPIRE


Philosophy

We offer a variety of opportunities to partner with our family whether it be through sponsored trips, activities, or products. We prefer partners who wear their heart on their sleeves and are fueled by passion over profit. We want to wholeheartedly recommend your products and services and know that our families will be taken care of. We want to be passionate, excited and want that to come through in the promotions of our partnerships. We will politely decline to work with companies that don’t reach these standards.

A closer look

My family adventures

My name is Jami Savage and I’m the CEO of my blog and my business. CEO for my blog of course stands for: “Chief Exploration Officer!” The younger members of my family refer to me though as, “Mom.” I’m an advocate for the great outdoors and you’ll find me regularly hiking, biking or boarding, often with my children by my side. I believe in lifelong learning, following your passion and living life to the fullest every day. You’ll regularly see us par taking in local trips, tours and adventures around the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

“When my kids grow up, they won’t be sad because I’m gone, they will be happy because we LIVED”

I can still remember my first adventure…

Packed like sardines in a can, my family’s car was cruising towards the coast for a weekend excursion in Vancouver. Though I was only six years old, I can still remember the excitement I felt at the idea of exploring someplace new. An excitement that went into overdrive the second I got that first glimpse of the beautiful skyline, glass and steel towers jutting out over the water like big crooked teeth. As our car winded down the curvy roads, we could feel the pull of the ocean and the music in the mountains.

I was hooked. It was at this moment that I knew my life would be one filled with endless exploration and adventure.

Shortly after this trip, my family relocated to the Vancouver area, allowing me to pack my days with all the adventures that make British Columbia such a wonderful place to call home. Camping, hiking, boating, fishing and so much more, each weekend we could be found out and about, exploring new places and trying new things.

It was during this time where I began to understand just how much of life begins at the end of your comfort zone. While many of my friends became hesitant to try new things as we got older (out of the fear of “looking silly”), you couldn’t stop me from attempting something new and fun, no matter how “silly” I might look at first. My boundless energy and passion for adventure meant that, without fail, I was always the first to cannonball in, strap on the board, hop on the bike, head down the trail, or whatever else we happened to be doing that day. Because for me, new challenges and experiences are always the most fun and create the best memories. And I wouldn’t dare rob myself of these experiences just because I might look silly!

This is a lesson I now get to share it with my husband and two wonderful children. Every day, I try to show them what it means to live a truly “rich” life. A life filled with special moments that only come to those willing to try those “crazy ideas”, say goodbye to comfort zones, jump right into something new, and put away the phone and the map, letting the open road take you where it wants you to go.

I am so thankful for the life I get to live. My years as a Canadian travel writer have allowed me to explore some of the most beautiful places on earth. Far too often, we make the mistake of believing that amazing adventures require large sums of money. But in reality, some of life’s best adventures require nothing more than time and a willingness to explore. For those of us fortunate enough to live in British Columbia, there are incredible wonders to be seen and memories to create just steps from our front door. And for those living elsewhere, I promise you that adventure is right around the corner. You just have to go find it…

In fact, this is the very reason I started Adventure Awaits. To help others see the magic that comes from living a life of exploration with their family. A life filled with smiles and laughs, lessons and memories. And so, as Canada’s premier family travel writer, my hope is that you use our community to educate, motivate and empower yourself to get out there and try new things, explore unique places, and make lifelong memories with your family.

Over the past 4 years, Adventure Awaits has been fortunate enough to work with over 100 brands, including WestJet, Parks Canada, Canadian Tire, Tourism Kauai, and more. This work has taken us on some incredible journeys, including all around British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, as well as Kauai, Canada’s East Coast and deep into the Canadian Rockies. We’ve been featured on CTV, The Vancouver Sun and CBC, and have the honour of being named the Runner Up 2016 Top Vancouver Mom Blogger.

When I’m not out there being Jami Savage “The Family Travel Writer” at Adventure Awaits, I spend my time as Jami Savage The Co-Founder of Savage & Wiser, a Digital Marketing Collective out of Vancouver. In addition to that, I also serve as a Girl Guide Leader and a frequent volunteer at my kids’ schools. Though the roles I fill may vary on any given day, I approach them all with relentless passion and energy. Because anything in life worth doing is worth doing well.

Adventure has been a lifelong passion for me, and I’m excited to share it with you here at Adventure Awaits.

Never Stop Exploring,
-Jami

"Jami helped to organize a group of 16 women to have an adventure on the Sunshine Coast. She arranged to rent kayaks for half the group, all adventure seeking, fun and ready for a great experience. I was impressed with the blog produced by Jami, as she really captured the day with great photos and video, and an interesting and accurate write up. I now find myself following her exploits on Twitter and Facebook - Adventure Awaits!"
