Why do you travel and Hike?
I truly believe traveling, getting outside, and being with nature is healing for the soul. It’s a way to connect with yourself and your surroundings in an experience like no other. See different cultures, experience different things, deepen your understanding for yourself the world we live in.
Honestly, my travel hack is to go with the flow. I typically go with a very loose “itinerary”. I go with some general activities in mind to do, some local spots I want to try, and then take it day by day.
Got any gear you can’t travel without?
What destination are you eager to go back to?
How do you stay safe when you’re travelling?
What’s the best way to experience a destination like a local?
What’s your favourite word in another language?
How has travel changed in your lifetime and how will it change over the next 25 years?
I was very fortune to grow up traveling a lot with my family. Unfortunately in my younger, high school years I could never really appreciate it. I just wanted to be with my friends. Now that I’m older my views on traveling are so different. I value it like currency or oxygen! Over the next 25 years I see longer, more extended travels. Spending more time in foreign locations diving deeper into different cultures and experiences.
