Thoughtful travel advice since 2012.

Departful was founded in 2012 in Toronto, Canada by Lauren Barth and JP Bervoets with the goal of providing a helpful and high quality online user experience for aspiring travelers. Tired of scouring highly personal, poorly organized and mobile-unfriendly travel blogs for real travel tips and hidden gems, we launched Departful to put our readers and their trips at the centre of the experience.

Departful was recognized as Best Travel Blog by the Canadian Weblog Awards and has been featured in a number of online and print publications, including:
