  • Nostalgia & Wanderlust

    What good is livin’ a life you’ve been given If all you do is stand in one place Passage from ‘Ends of the Earth’ by Lord Huron Both nostalgia and wanderlust have hit me hard this week. I feel almost restless and not in a bad way. But in a ‘I really want to travel…

  • 1/46: Cascade Mountain

    It’d been a while. Several years. The last memory I had of this place was of being a child, and looking out from the back seat window, in awe, at the mountains rising up above me. Face pressed to the glass, transfixed to the beauty of the natural scenes around me. I must have been…

  • Trips

    This isn’t so much a post as it is me admittedly procrastinating and looking at flights to destinations I’ve always dreamt about. I’ve recently been much more of the mindset of putting my money towards going places and experiencing new things as opposed to buying things or objects. So with that said, I’m planning on…

  • On Music feat. Out of Ten Podcast

    Music has and always will be an indispensable part of my life. While I may not write about it much here, it’s in everything I do. Working, studying, exercising, travelling, even sleeping at times. And that’s just the listening aspect. Playing music gives you much more appreciation for it, as I grew up playing a…

  • Why You Should Get Outside In The Winter

    People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy – Anton Chekhov I’ll be concise with what I want to get across here: don’t let winter stop you from getting outside and being physically active! With the shorter days and much less sunlight, we all have a tendency to almost hibernate and stay…

  • 2016

      Infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honour your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace…

  • Jasper

    As I reflect upon the past year, I can’t help but think about my time in Jasper National Park and my first ever camping experience (believe it or not). After a day spent at Lake Louise with our friends, we decided to make the breathtaking drive up north to Jasper via the Icefields Parkway. If…

  • Yosemite II

    Yosemite Valley felt completely out of this world. It’s hard to describe how I felt when I was walking through those meadows. I think the best words to describe it are surreal and ethereal. It honestly seemed like I was dreaming. Eventually I had to pull myself away from the beauty of it all to scope…

  • Yosemite I

    “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” – John Muir Yosemite has my heart. There’s still so much left for me…

  • Day 4 – Mount Rundle

    I’ll remember this day for the rest of my life. We woke up that morning finally deciding to tackle Rundle, as weather had been an issue before. With the previous day’s adventures in Yoho under our belt, we felt confident to make the ascent up this peak. One of our goals during this trip was…
