My name is Erika. I am a teacher, outdoor enthusiast, adventure lover and travel aficionado. I currently live in Vancouver, BC, Canada, where I grew up, but I have also lived in Nova Scotia, Alberta, and North Wales. I am trying to use this blog to keep track of my adventures, memories, and maybe help someone else out who might find themselves in the same place one day. Enjoy!

And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.
