About Us

DD and DAMI driving in their Vibe across Canada.On The Road!
TripSister.com is the website of DD and DAMI; partners and friends who both love to travel! We decided to start this website to help document our camping trips, vacations and holidays.

We find that the more we travel the more pictures we have and the more pages of diaries we fill. Each trip we take, whether it is a camping trip to the Florida Keys or a stay in a luxury resort hotel in Hawaii, we end up with hundreds of stories to tell and twice as many pictures to show!

It is tough to share our stories and photos with our families and friends, who are spread around the world, so we decided to start this website so people we knew and friends we met on our travels could come to one website to read and see new pictures when it was convenient. TripSister.com is the name we chose for our website to share our stories and pictures from our travels, holidays and vacations; we chose the name because…well…we like to trip! We’re not sisters but at times we can fight like sisters! No…we just liked the name because it’s casual, like us!

We love doing everything from backpacking to car-camping to staying in luxury hotels. Every trip we take we try and make different…something new and exciting to a different destination so we can learn more about the world…and ourselves!

DD is a great diary enthusiast and keeps detailed notes on our trips including budgets, sights, special moments and other details that, if they hadn’t been written down, would be lost! Both DD and myself, DAMI take pictures, and while neither of us are professional photographers, we sometimes are very happy with the results!

We both like to write and take pictures so we started this website to share our adventures, pictures, hotel reviews or whatever leaves an impression on us with our friends and family.

If you have come to our website by accident we welcome you! If you want to send your comments we’d love to hear your voice! You can post a comment on most pages or send an email to us at .

That Dutchman’s FarmThat Dutchman’s Farm

It is unfortunate that That Dutchman’s Farm is not featured in the Nova Scotia guide book because it is a rare find, at least it’s what we thought. We found out about it at the Nova Scotia Visitor Information Center at the New Brunswick Border. It is located at 132 Brown Rd in Economy, Nova Scotia. On the premises you ...

Mersey River Chalet RetreatMersey River Chalet Retreat

We finally went for our much awaited retreat last week in Nova Scotia at Mersey River Chalets. It always feels like home, without the responsibilities a private chalet would imply; no taxes to pay, no cleaning, and no worries for vandalism or storm damage when we’re gone, it’s all taken care of. We left at 12:30 and after Truro, instead of ...

Christmas on Cape Breton IslandChristmas on Cape Breton Island

These days it seems the stores start playing Christmas music right after Halloween and in Canada as the days get longer in November and December we all start to feel the cabin fever that results from being buried under snow and ice with wind chills that constantly remind us that the only place worth on Earth would be on the ...

The Fortress of LouisbourgThe Fortress of Louisbourg

The Fortress of Louisbourg  is an amazing historical site in Nova Scotia. We have been here three times and it is always an amazing visit; we get swept away in the history of the place! The entire site is an accurate recreation of buildings and includes re-enactments of events and daily life by authentically costumed actors and guides on site. This ...
