Mentioned in my previous post, I am situated here on Vancouver Island for the summer. Before I started my Clinical rotation, my friend and I decided to head west and get a little taste of the Juan de Fuca Trail. Due to time restraints, we could only afford the minuscule 24 hours at this place. […]
Hello world, It is I, Charlotte, back in the blogging world. I apologize for not writing at all this past year. I have been keeping quite busy with school!
I have done a lot of hikes in my life so far, but this one in particular blew it out of the ball park for me. Assiniboine Provincial Park is situated nice and snug on the British Columbia and Alberta border. The route we took started us in Banff National Park, then we entered into […]
One of the FAQ’s that I’m often asked is what I eat when I back country camp. Well, a lot of the food I eat depends on three things: Will it fuel me? Can I cook it out of 1 pot? and is it light? Most people think it’s hard enough to cook a meal […]
I came home last week from two amazing, life changing weeks. I spent them deep in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Hiking to Berg Lake was one of two treks we did.
Distance: 8 km (5 miles) Elevation Gain: 476 m (1,560 ft) Time: 3-3.5 Hours (roundtrip) Before I left for Maui, I spent a lot of time figuring out which day hike I wanted to do. What’s great about Maui is that the list is endless. Whether you decide to explore the east coast (Hana) or the […]
If you’re ever in Maui and are looking for something “off the beaten path,” why not look up from the beach you’re sitting at and stare towards the Haleakala Crater. Not only should you check out the top of it, but nestled below are other cool things to see. We actually made a half day […]
So far, this has been the highlight of my trip (other than catching waves the day before!). I love being in the water. Being surrounded by beautiful colourful fish makes it even better. We went with the company Four Winds II. boat was an amazing catamaran that carried the 21 of us. I loved every […]
What’s better than getting right into the good stuff when you just arrived to paradise? Surfing was on the agenda for our first day. From Wailea, we drove about 30 minutes north/west towards Ukumehame Beach. The three of us signed up for a 2 hour surf lesson through Maui Surfer Girls. It was an incredible […]
In the words of John Muir: “Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.”
