All Season's Traveler

I am an outdoor girl who loves to spend her time skiing, climbing, backpacking and blogging about her experiences as much as possible. I often describe myself as an enthusiastic outdoorswoman who is ‘learning to be more extreme.’ I have backpacked the John Muir Trail, ice climbed in the North Cascades and skied throughout the Pacific Northwest. I don’t claim to be an expert on all things outdoors, but has spent countless nights under the stars and in the backcountry. Through my blog, I hope to share my experiences and knowledge to inspire others to get outside through the journey of becoming an outdoor specialist. I also have a passion for food. So, it is obvious that food and food recipes will take a big part in my writings. I love to share camping food ideas and recipes with my readers. Readers will find definitely my blog helpful for the tips and information about survival camping and camping food recipes. I live in Montana with my husband and a little puppy named ‘Quinn.’

I am a travel blogger with a knack for getting lost. I love to lose myself in the outdoors. Traveling and exploring have long been a passion for me. I have always felt like a nomad, in search of the true home, and traveling is the only way for me to find it... But it is through traveling that I felt most like myself, and found my happiness. The more I lose himself in this world, the better I find myself. I share my adventures and expeditions in the travel blog, to bring out the best in every destination, in the hope that they guide others in their adventures. I am also an expert in outdoor activities. I try to provide my readers with the expert opinions on outdoor activities, attractions and outdoor educations. As an outdoor enthusiast my blog can be the ultimate resource for outdoor adventurists and travelers. I have taken writing as my profession and my passion travel intersects with that road. Born in Scotland and graduated from Oxford University, I have been based in the US with my wife for almost twenty years.
