Welcome to My Travel Blog
Hello friends, and welcome to my blog! Here I will be documenting my travels in the upcoming year through pictures, videos and stories. Please feel free to drop a comment on any of the posts, let me know what you think/anything else you would like to know!
My general travel itinerary for 2015/2016 is as follows:
- Allstones Lake Overnight Hike, Nordegg Area, Canada: June 27th- 28th
I will be hiking up to Allstones lake (~9km, one way) accompanied by two friends and we will explore and photograph the area, then tent on the shoreline for a night. The following day we will continue to explore the area and then hike out later in the day. We are primarily just going for chills and to break in some new gear- a mellow kick-off to my year of travel!
- Peru Missions Trip, Cusco Area, Peru: July 26th- August 9th
For this trip, I will be travelling with a team of seventeen young adults/youth group members to Cusco, Peru. From there we will be travelling to surrounding mountain villages and hosting day camps for the kids, assisting with construction/maintenance projects and helping with the operation of a conference for the women of Peru. At the end of the two weeks, certain group members, including myself, will hike to the famed mountain villa widely known as Macchu Picchu!
-Berg Lake/Mount Robson Multiday Hike, Robson Provincial Park, Canada: August 21st- August 23rd
I will be doing a three day backpacking trip with my dad up to and around Berg Lake, which sits at the base of Mount Robson, the tallest peak in the Canadian Rockies. We will hike ~21 kilometres the first day to arrive at our chosen campsite near the lake. Then, on the second day, we will be hiking around the lake, exploring and photographing the area. Then, on the third day, we plan to hike the ~21 kilometres back out!
-Germany/Europe Trip: departing September 14th with no planned return date, approximately early/mid April 2016
The largest/longest trip I will have gone on to date, I will be travelling to Germany with a friend to attend Bodenseehof Bible school. With afternoons, weekends and Christmas break free, we will be travelling and exploring Europe extensively from our 'home base' in Friedrichshafen. My friend and I also plan to extend our stay beyond the semester for ~two weeks to focus solely on travelling! We plan to visit many locations in Europe, hike, and snowboard in the Alps.
There are a few more 2-3 day backpacking trips in The Rockies that are not finalized at this time, however they will likely fall before the Peru trip!
