PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR THEIR NEXT ESCAPE.
Round the world tickets.
Backpacking through SE Asia.
Gap years in Australia...
But what about staying here?
By the time I was 24 I had travelled, lived and worked in over 30 countries. I was a professional at hopping on any flight I could to get away; I needed to explore, but staying in Canada didn't seem "adventurous" enough for me. I thought adventure could only be satisfied in foreign experiences on the other side of the world.
In my early 20's I was offered a short term contract for a travel company based in Vancouver. I had never been to Vancouver but thought "What the heck? It's only three months...just another trip and a new experience."
Long story short, it's been three years and I haven't looked back since. I absolutely fell in love with this city. Over the course of these years I was going through a lot of change, including transitioning out of the travel industry. It was SO hard to not have the option of travelling all of the time so I started packing my evenings and weekends with any adventure I could find in and around Vancouver.
Once I started exploring British Columbia, I realized how much I had skipped out on. I couldn't believe how incredible my own country was and couldn't help but wonder why I had never opted to explore my own backyard.
While I'm lucky to have seen and experienced so much traveling the world - this is my home..and I've set out with one mission:
Show people that they don't have to go far to travel.
So here it is: #TheStayCationSeries. My goal is to travel around Canada to showcase what our home is all about while supporting local, sustainable tourism and leaving you with a detailed blog on how you can re-create the trip for yourself.
So...are you in this with me, or what? Let's put Northern British Columbia at the top of everyone's list.
AN intriguing cities, gorgeous harbour and spots that people daydream about. this is the ultimate canadian experience.
Think the great escape, but for everyday people.
Sure, it sounds amazing to quit your job and buy an around the world ticket but that's not reality for most of the world.
I want to promote trips that people can actually see themselves doing in the near future. So that falls under same day experiences, weekend trips, road trips, luxury escapes and up to 2 week vacations. Something that the student, digital nomad and working mom can all make happen.
I'll showcase the most perfect escape, and you just have to stand there and look pretty.
With pristine untouched lands and endless opportunity to explore, Northern British Columbia is a hidden gem for travellers. I'd like to team up with you to put together an itinerary to showcase the ultimate getaway to Northern BC.
Surf, hike, wildlife and orcas. This dreamy getaway is a bucketlist item for Canadians.
Great Bear Rainforest
Home to Sprit Bears, wolves, black bears, grizzlies and more...the Great Bear Rainforest is the largest intact rainforest in the world.
Content Creator. Storyteller. Social Connector.
I'm a passion-fulled adventure seeker whose goal is to creatively tell stories about what motivates me to continue to seek a full, adventurous life.
I explore because there is no better way to exist. The traditional norm of a simple life in one place doesn't cut it; I crave the challenges of new locations and experiences. My life is a combination of curiosity, destinations, adventures, interaction, human connection, spontaneity, opportunities and reality.
I work with brands to create exciting ways to tell engaging visual stories who's built an engaging following that emotionally connects with what I do. I've done that through powerful content that build relationships and trust.
We all know that social media has become a platform for selling. Instead of throwing up an #ad for every post, I only work with brands that authentically align with my lifestyle, and I've just curated my content to have people say:
"Ok, this is amazing. Where is this place?
"I need to go here"
"Added to the bucket list"
In turn, that creates awareness. It creates the spark.
