Canalien Feature: Chloe Cronyn & Ben Collins

As globetrotting entrepreneurs, our team is working from the safety of our homes from locations including the USA, Canada and the Caribbean. We’ve been adventuring and exploring from the comfort of the great indoors, getting cozy in our Canalien gear and pulling out our favourite puzzle and awaiting the spring sunshine.

At a time like this, we need inspiration more than ever, so we caught up with our friends and London dwellers Chloe Cronyn and Ben Collins!

Where are you located right now?
London, UK

And where are you from?
CC: Toronto, ON but live in London UK
BC: London UK

Where did you last visit/explore? Share trip details!
Amsterdam, Holland
We had THE BEST time wandering around the canals, eating and drinking. We met up with our friends Danny and Renee (who got engaged right after), went to a few art galleries, and had a bit of a boogie. We took the train there from London which was so easy and chill

Where will you first visit when it’s safe to do so?
CC: Italy! Somewhere along the coast so you can swim in the ocean during the day and then eat pizza and pasta and wine at night (crying thinking about it)

BC: Pub
CC: no, travel somewhere
BC: Pub

What’s your favourite trip you’ve ever been on?
CC: I can’t, this question is too hard. Revelstoke, Seychelles, NYC engagement trip, Lisbon in Portugal, Thailand tour, Paris with the Mum, Atlanta, Whistler aka all of the ski trips as skiing = life

BC: first trip to NYC with my wife

What is your dream travel destination? What would you do there?
CC: Ohh tricky. 1) Beach/island life where you boat around to different islands and swim and go to the little beach restaurants and eat tapas/ seafood and drink a fresh local wine or pinas and read and chat and snorkel and soak up the sun. 2) Skiing in a non-touristy spot – can be anywhere in the world really
I’ve always wanted to go to Japan too! Like badly. But I think I need to get a non-urban holiday under my belt first.

BC: LA. Party

Thanks, Chloe and Ben! You can follow their awesome adventures on Instagram here and here.

The Love Affair Collection stems from a personal Tale of Two Cities. Mainly because it involves a character named Sydney, a couple cities and tbh it rly was "the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness".

I made this collection for other Canaliens who may have left part of themselves in another city, too. I feel ya! Be proud of your nomad-icity.
