Nathan Thompson

Favorite Destination

Without a doubt, it’s Ischia. Though, to be fair, I’m biased… it’s where I met my wife.

Most Exotic Destination Traveled

Ometepe, Nicaragua. It was back to the basics with limited electricity, beds with bug nets, and a little casita bar/restaurant for dinner. It was also an awesome reminder that I need to brush up on my Spanish!

Travel Philosophy

Grab a globe, spin, and point. Then you’re off!

Born and raised in California, Nathan had a chance encounter with a girl on an island off the coast of southern Italy. A few months and a huge risk later, he moved to her hometown (and was invited, of course) in Québec City. In 2014 the two realized their desire to travel was overwhelming, so they bought a couple of one-way tickets to Paris, France, where they could more easily move about the globe. They spent three wonderful years in the city of lights and have since returned to Québec City with their 1.5 children (one is on the way!). Now Nathan wants to share his love of reading, writing, and travel with his kids… and when they’re older, his love of great wine!
