Moving back to the Vancouver area after almost 6 years away was hard for me. I have missed the Okanagan, living near the downtown core, and being a short drive from most of my closest friends. It has been a new adjustment. However, it was the best decision I could have made for my personal & professional growth. I needed the space to think about what I wanted to do, save money, and reevaluate my priorities. I have also loved being close to family again.
After returning from my trip to Europe last August, it was time for a change up. I realized how much of my own province I had not seen. I have always loved to travel. Hiking has been a way to explore, see new places, and is a novel outlook on making connections + pursuing passions separate from competitive athletics.
Outside of practical experience, clinical, and lab work, my degree & assignments are delivered entirely online. This has allowed me the flexibility to travel, explore, & see places I have never before had the opportunity or time to visit. The response I have gotten has been humbling + unbelievable. I love getting messages from people asking about hikes, views, and their own dedication to tackling new types of adventure.
Thus, this page is likely long overdue. I need about 35 hours in my day in order to maintain this blog to my liking…BUT, this space will be dedicated to documenting the hikes + explorations I have done in BC & beyond. For those interested, it will hopefully be an intriguing and honest resource. For those who prefer to stay on the couch…you can live vicariously??
As always, so so grateful for all the positivity & time people have taken to support my crazy life and get themselves moving and exploring nature.
