Making friends everywhere I go 👋🏼 🦙| We headed back to Machu Picchu this morning and the Llamas were out roaming around. We then headed up Wayna Picchu mountain where we took in another perspective of the area. Last time I came I hiked Machu Picchu mountain which is on the other side, along with Putucusi Mountain, starting from Aguas Calientes, so it’s great having been able to see this wonder of the world from all angles! @trovatrip#machupicchu#peru#freshairandfreedom
Traveling, it leaves you speechless & then turns you into a story teller | I love the conversation that develops between myself and others who adventure, travel, and hike. Even though the trails and places may be different it’s the shared passion, lessons and common feelings and emotions that develop and make us feel more connected with one another. As an educator I feel experience is SO important and something we can bring into the classroom that will assist us with our own teaching and relationships with not only the kids, but other teachers, parents and ourselves | It all makes me a more well rounded person ✌🏼 @eddiebauer#whyihike#ebcontributor#liveyouradventure
Yesterday was fun ✌🏼 We started our Peru adventure in the capital, Lima, bussed down to Paracas for a boat tour and then kept trucking over to Huacachina for some dunebuggying and sandboarding (I went to sleep still feeling as though I was moving - was quite the day)! This afternoon we’re heading for Arequipa, before making it to Cusco for tomorrow evening @gopro | @trovatrip then kicks off on the 15th! Can’t wait to meet the group! #peru#huacachina#itsgoodtobeback
Did you know that every year Canadians use almost THREE BILLION plastic bags and fill our Great Lakes with an estimated 10,000 tonnes of plastic? If we are going to protect our rivers, lakes and oceans we need to act now. Join @CoronaCanada, @Parley.tv and myself as we work together to clean up our shorelines. On July 27th I will be joining a beach clean up at Lindsey Park in Calgary and would LOVE to have you join! I have linked more information in my bio, along with a swipe up link in my story. Feel free to message for more info or click the link to find out more! Hope to see you there! #Corona_Partner#coronaxparley
It’s finally starting to sink in that I will be back in this magical place in a couple short days! It’s been 4 years. Tomorrow I will be setting out for a two week trip to Peru with @trovatrip , an adventure that has been in the works for a while. Back in August they reached out to me asking if I would want to host a trip, and I was a tad hesitant at first but am so happy I said yes and am so excited to meet the other 17 travellers that will be joining myself down South! I will be posting when I can along the way - stories and photos, sharing all the fun things we get up to. Who’s been to Peru!? *
Reminder I have another trip in the works with them, though to Patagonia, from March 1-8th, which is linked in my bio. Feel free to DM me with ANY questions that you have.
Sometimes you just need to phone up a friend and say ‘Pack your bags, we’re going on an adventure’. I messaged my friend @leahtylerszucki a couple days ago saying let’s go hiking this week... she has a 7 week old little one and didn’t hesitate at all in saying ‘Ya girl! Let’s do it’. She inspires me so much and I’m so proud of her for continuing to get outside and enjoying the outdoors even with a newborn! She’s also a great photographer 💁🏼♀️

❤️🇨🇦 I created the hashtag #freshairandfreedom years ago now and it’s been so fun following along with others who utilize it on their adventures. I couldn’t think of a better way to describe the country I am so blessed to call home. Happy Canada Day weekend! #canadaday
We have been SO busy, finishing up the end of the school year, moving into our new place, and getting stuff organized before leaving on a couple trips... I woke up this morning in our new place, we were having coffee and I looked over at @crp13 and said, soooo want to go to the mountains? He said yep! So we packed up and headed out. We were hiking by noon. My soul needed today 🙏🏼 & my shirt reads ‘My motivation for running: Peanut Butter’ ... and yes it’s the best shirt.
