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.
