Oh hi there! I’m Rachael!
Welcome to my corner of the world! I started this blog as a way of sharing my love of adventure and travel. Since moving to Canada in 2016 I’ve traveled solo and pursued an outdoor lifestyle that allows me to explore my own backyard here in BC. I first started hiking with a few easy hikes in Whistler where I found a love of the outdoors and grew a passion for hiking.
The first technical hike I ever completed I did wearing denim shorts and a pair of Vans – I’m here to help you avoid making these same mistakes and prepare you for hiking in the backcountry. If it wasn’t for my Canadian husband, I’d have never learned about the outdoors.
I believe the outdoors is for everyone, this blog is here to inspire you to brave that hike, camping trip or outdoors vacation and embrace nature the right way. On this blog you can find posts featuring everything from mountains to cityscapes and beyond.
Your adventure doesn’t have to stop here!
