About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to explore and share stories from people all over the world !

ABOUT ME

I am a recent University graduate and studied both history and languages. I come from a massive family so I am loud, easy-going and I eat a ton! Coming from a big family though I get bored easily, and always like to be doing something. I need change in my life-, and would rather have spontaneity than stability.

Interests

Obviously, travel, but I imagine everyone on here has that answer. More specifically, I cannot wait to learn, from locals, all about the different cultures around the world. I want to hear their stories - about life, how they live, and why they live the way they do.
Also, I LOVE food- I am so excited to try food from every corner of the world.
At home? I cook- I am a fairly decent cook- and I enjoy staying active, whether through exercise or exploring. On the other side, though, there are few things I like better than a bottle of wine and a movie :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When on Maui for a family vacation we drove up Haleakala to watch the sunrise. It was the coldest I have ever been, but one of the most amazing experiences of my life and would gladly do it all over again. We could see the whole island once the sun rose, and the ocean was all around. It was hard to tell what was cloud and what was water!
Living in Edmonton means we have fairly easy access to the mountains. Just being surrounded by mountains is surreal, and I like to go visit as often as I can... They are wonderful in any season.
In Vancouver this past summer, my boyfriend and I decided to climb the Grouse Grind- rated one of the toughest hikes in North America- and needless to say, we were grossly unprepared. With both of us being in relatively decent shape, we assumed all the warnings "for serious hikers only" were for people who were old, young or extremely unfit. You would think that once we had seen the sign telling us we were essentially past the point of no return and we could only now go up, we would have gotten some idea. But no,. One water bottle for the two of us, this hike was one of the hardest most humbling experiences of my life to date. Now, we finished in "better than average time", whatever average is, but we were still passed by an 80 year old man and two women with their make up done and sandals on. Finally reaching the top though, was so satisfying, and the chicken fingers I had at the top?? The best ever. I cannot wait to do this again and beat my time- only this time we will be much more prepared...
