About us

Wapiti travel is the brainchild of 2 passionate travelers Kris and Sylvia.  We started this website to share the passion we have for our favorite destinations.

Do you sometimes struggle to create your travel itinerary?

Do you find it hard to decide on what to see or do because there’s always so much things that get you excited?

We know that feeling. And that’s why we write so many in-depth articles about our favorite destinations. We have made it our mission to help you create an incredible trip to our favorite destinations.

What to expect

We love to arrange our own plans and travel independently as often as possible.  We want to have the freedom to do exactly as we want.  We even traveled through China on our own which was probably up till now the most challenging of our vacations.

With our in-depth travel guides for countries such as Japan and South-Korea we hope to give you all the information to do the same and experience these countries to the fullest.

For us traveling is all about the experiences.  Experiences like a Ryokan stay in Japan, a helicopter flight across a glacier in Alaska, a sunrise at the Uyuni Salt Flats in Bolivia or a game drive in South Africa. 

A picture is good to take home as a memory but it quickly gathers dust. An experience is something that you will still be talking about several years later.

We also leave ample space in our travel plans to truly experience the country

Why you can trust us

We’re not a travel agency and we’re not trying to sell you anything. We’re passionate travelers like you, and we’ve turned into full-time travel writers to help fellow travelers make the most of their trips.

We’ve fallen in love with so many beautiful places on our planet and we want to spread the love to as many people as possible.

We share our honest opinion about places that we’ve actually visited. In some cases we also write about places that we want to visit. Those are based on days of research that we have done to prepare our trip and they’re often in collaboration with somebody who lives there or has been there.

Some of our articles contain affiliate links. If you make a purchase using these links we may receive a small commission at no extra cost to you. These earnings help us to keep this blog alive.

You can trust us that at all times we will act with integrity and never promote anything that we wouldn’t use ourselves or wouldn’t do ourselves.

Who we are

Who is Kris

I got the travel bug from my parents.  From a very young age, they took me on their vacations and I discovered how much fun it was to discover the world.   I’m so happy that partly thanks to them I’ve been on all seven continents already.

Life is short and the world is wide. I will never miss a chance to discover a new place and I feel a little sad if I have no travel plans to look forward to.

Who is Sylvia

As a child, my parents yearly took me on a vacation to France.  Already at that time, I started dreaming of spending vacations in faraway exotic destinations.  So, as soon as I grew older I started exploring the world.  At first, I went to Morocco, Egypt, and Tunisia.  Later on, I started discovering countries further away such as my 6 weeks backpack trip in Thailand.

I love to discover new places every year and I always look around for unique special experiences.  That’s how I charge my batteries during the year!

When I’m not traveling I like to spend time with our furry friend Pepper.
