Hey there, aspiring adventurer!

I've always been curious about our world since I was a little one. Now, I'm incredibly blessed through the art of writing (and the Internet!) that I can share what I learned about this world as I explore.

I provide more than guides but tips to encourage yourself to seek majestic beauty through trips you've never taken, things you've never experienced, hikes you have to conquer, and take that step to be a confident adventurer. There are so many stories surrounding these places and I want to be that storyteller for you.
