Welcome to Karpiak Caravan!

Hello! I’m Casandra Karpiak, a full-time travel writer, wife, and mother of two very active boys. I have lived in British Columbia since 2000. My husband was born in the interior of BC, and we have been traveling with our kids since they were just weeks old.

We are an adventurous family who loves to travel. My two boys play rep hockey, so in addition to vacationing, we are traveling to small towns every weekend during hockey season throughout British Columbia. We stay in accommodations of all kinds. Budget, campgrounds, mid-range, boutique, Vrbo, Airbnb, luxury. You name it, we have tried it!

In my day job as a travel journalist, I regularly write about the luxury travel market, so you will also find quite a lot of luxury travel content.

Our favorite spots in the province are Tofino, Okanagan’s wine country, Sun Peaks, and, of course, Vancouver. If you like adventure, chasing waterfalls, or drinking BC wine, this is the website for you!
