Looking for adventure? Of course you are, that's why you're here.
Whenever I get the chance, I chase adventure, be they outdoors, urban or international.
Based in Vancouver, I work in finance and am often busy with the hustle and bustle of professional life. I have discovered that I'm happiest when I'm off exploring and creating a new adventure. Traveling and being in nature keep me sane and prevent me from getting bogged down by the daily grind.
It is so easy to get caught up in our fast-paced lives. Exploring somewhere new takes you out of your routine and forces you to present. Travel is my therapy.
I hope you find inspiration in my articles to step out of your routine and discover something new about the world… and maybe even yourself.

There is nowhere I'd rather be than out in nature, whether that is listening to the waves crash against the shore, breathing in that fresh mountain air or feeling the mist from a waterfall on my skin. Being in nature provides an opportunity to truly de-stress and unplug and I try to escape there often.
The outdoors is the ultimate adventure. You cannot beat the thrill you feel after summiting a mountain, sharing the trail with wildlife or discovering hot springs after a lengthy trek. The outdoors will truly test what you're made of again and again and who doesn't love a little adversity in the name of self-discovery?
You don't often find me without a camera in my hand. There also aren't many pictures of me on my adventures because I'm the one always taking the picture! There is something magical about finding that unique perspective to showcase a particular moment and freezing it in time.
Food, glorious food. Trying the local cuisine has to be one of my favorite parts of traveling. It can be an adventure in and of itself and is a great way to learn about the culture and history of your destination (and it's delicious).
That surge of excitement when you load up the car and hit the road cannot be beat! Road trips are my preferred way to travel as they give you so much control to experience things the way you want to.
