Seeking Authenticity: My Hawaiian Hike Adventure

If you don’t already know this about me, lemme fill you in real quick. I try to avoid being a tourist when I travel. Sure, I’ll take LOTS of photos and visit a few famous landmarks (here’s looking at you, Eiffel). But I wanna go beyond that, too – away from the crowds, off the …

What IS Adventure, Really?

You know why I adventure. (Or maybe you don’t, so READ IT.) But, adventures themselves aren’t one-size-fits-all. What constitutes an adventure for me might seem too boring, dangerous, odd, uncomfortable [insert word of choice] to you. And vice versa. And, guys. I love that about adventuring. It is what you make it. So, real quick, …

To All My Fellow Bucket Listers: Are you Dreaming or Doing?

We’re only one quarter into 2018, and I already feel like I’ve adventured enough for half the year. No complaints, though! Enough is not a word in an adventurer’s vocabulary. There’s no such thing as enough, only what’s next? But, as much as I’m always itching for the next, I also enjoy reflecting. Not just …

Guys, I finally crossed ziplining off my bucket list. While prepping for my Italy trip, I stumbled upon Il Volo dell’Angelo – the Flight of the Angels – and knew, instantly, I had to make it happen. HAD TO. You see, Volo dell’Angelo is one of the highest ziplines in the world. Two separate lines …

Serious About Adventuring

Today, I felt like reflecting. I guess you could call this a #flashbackFriday -esque post. But really, it felt like time to take inventory of the adventures I’ve experienced since I got good and serious about adventuring. Good and serious back in May 2016. Prior to that point, I adventured. Oh sure! But I wasn’t …

The Nomad’s Life for Me

Do you ever think about becoming a nomad? I do. Only every single day. Being nomadic perfectly fits that arrow life I’m always striving to pursue. Though I only just recently adopted the ‘arrow life’ label, it’s truly been my heart’s desire since I was a wee girl in tiny town Michigan, USA. I’m so …
