Big thanks to Beers & Beans for spreading word about yet another awesome spring photo contest:  Explore.co.uk and Blacks‘ Explore! competition. Post some of your most epic travel photos as fast as you can to give the world a panoramic view of your wild life- and potentially win £2000 of adventure travel! (..can you guess what the 4 categories are?) Phew. That’s enough wordplay for one day. Check out my entries below: WildThe last thing you want to unsuspectingly… Read More

I always seem to get that unshakable travel itch in the spring. Something about the change of seasons makes the world around me feel so immense and undiscovered. Either that, or I am just trying with all my might to daydream my spring midterms into nonexistence.. Okay it’s definitely the latter- but here are a few places that have been keeping my mind occupied over the last week. 10. Climb the perilous… Read More

4 days in the radiant Colorado sun was about all it took for me to give up on weathering the East Coast winter and pray for spring. Though, living in Boston, I’ll settle for an extra hour of sun and a few days above 30º. I flew home last Wednesday for a quick recharge in the Rockies and was dying to get a little hiking in. Hanging Lake is an old classic,… Read More

Apparently I didn’t get the memo about kicking off my 2014 resolutions back in January, because here we are in not-so-early March and I am just getting around to making all those goals I’ll be ignoring for the next year. But in the spirit of better late than never, I’ve been tackling projects like working on my photo-editing skills in Lightroom, dreaming up some adventures for the summer, and picking up the… Read More

2013 brought me from the peak of the 2nd largest volcano in Indonesia to traversing glaciers in Iceland. It was a year of hard work- in class, on the search for an internship, and completing some of the most incredible treks of my life. With 2014 hours away, it all seems to be paying off. I have a lot to look forward to, and many moments that will be hard to beat…. Read More

Call it end-of-semester stress, but somewhere between flying back from BC in November and blogging about the trip, I managed to lose track of an entire memory card of photographs. It was a pleasant surprise to realize I had more to share, this time about a snagging an extra day in Vancouver. After a lovely couple of days in Tofino, we walked, drove, and ferry-ed our way back to Vancouver to catch… Read More

Thanksgiving, for my family, has always been more about being together than where we are together. Of course, I will always demand that Christmas is spent at our home in Colorado- probably well past the appropriate amount of time for a full-grown adult to be going to her parents for the holidays, but that won’t stop me. Anyways, we have spent our Thanksgivings in places from Ireland to Kazakhstan, so I wasn’t all… Read More

There’s no use in denying that time got away from me this semester. It’s somehow late November, Thanksgiving’s in a week, finals are in two weeks- and I’m still stuck somewhere back in early October. Running around between classes, labs, and interviews this semester has been chaotic and I’m finally in the home stretch, but there’s no shortage of work to be tackled before I can fly home. So, in the spirit… Read More
