The trail 'Disneyland', high above Squamish, has been on my 'hit list' for years but it is quite a mega mission to get up there, and I had yet to make it...until this past week! When the opportunity to head up there via heli with a with a super fun crew arose, I obviously said YES. We had a pretty epic two days up there camping in the alpine. Ohhh that place is beautiful. 360 degree views. You can see Atwell, Squamish, the fjords, the
I went out the Liv & Giant HQ in Tai Chung, Taiwan recently. It was a whirlwind of a trip - with only 4 days on the ground but I made the most of it and tried to do as much as I could. I used my early mornings to explore the city, the days working with an amazing team (who introduced me to a lot of new foods and Taiwanese culture) and my evenings for more exploring, socializing and new foods. I even got to ride before I flew out on Saturday which amazing - we had a mega crew and rode some super fun trails. I can't wait to return. Doesn't matter where I am or what I am doing, I just love to travel.
I feel like I am pretty good at letting things roll of my back but this chaos in the US right now is getting the best of me - I have constant knots in my stomach from so much negativity and hate.
I wrote this just after the election and I thought I would share because it has been at the forefront of my mind...
"I have not been able to hold back my tears. I feel like everything has been sucked out of me. I feel sad, upset, angry, confused, disappointed, embarrassed. To know that this is what the majority of Americans want and I am an American feels in a sense that I have lost my identity.
Ok, I promise to stop recycling content and give you all some cool new stuff soon. I have created a lot of content over the last year that I never really got the chance to share and I want to give it a home to live, even if it is in the archives because I think it is valuable for planning trips and learning tips....
Although this video is a little old, a few people recently told me that they used this how-to to learn how to pack their bike for a trip (I think I did a little dance of excitement hahaha) so I thought I would re-share it. While I don't travel with a cardboard box anymore (new tutorial coming soon), I did for 10+ years and it totally works - especially if you follow these tips. Follow this and save yourself the little heartache from a damaged bike. I used this one box for an entire year of travel!
Making time for my family is something that is super important to me. Whether it's a lunch, dinner or helping my mom with stuff around the house, I love spending time at home with my mom. I drove down to Seattle yesterday so
This series/film had been showing up on YouTube home page for the past couple months, but I thought it was maybe a little too woooo wooo for me so I passed up time and time again. While laid up on the couch like a sick dog this week
I have long been a fan of podcasts. You can listen to them while you are exercising, driving and doing stuff around the house - and they kinda keep you out of the black hole (social media/the news/tv) that is way too easy to fall into right now. I want to be informed and have a voice but I also want to be cognizant of the impact everything going on right now has on me personally from day to day.
