Huge thank you to everybody that came out to Oka National Park last weekend to help us build community, learn from each other, and celebrate this amazing lifestyle. These events aren't possible without the participation of each and every one of you. We can't wait to see you again at El Campo this Fall! Photo credit: @karolinakk
"Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear". ✨💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I still have a long road ahead of me and a beautiful journey to create but is so awesome when you look back and see everything you always wanted happening right now in front of you. This feeling also applies to when I moved to new a country: it just gets easier as you figure out the big stuff and learn to deal with any obstacle you might have. The truth is: you'll never going to get it If you don't try. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (feeling super grateful and inspired right now) What should you be grateful for today? 💕 . . . . . ⠀
One thing I’ve learnt over the last couple of years is that I prefer to spend my money and time on experiences, rather than “things” and materialistic items. I used to be a huge binge spender, always going shopping and putting clothes I know I’ll never wear, on Afterpay. One thing travel has taught me is that I’d rather be spending my hard earnt money on visiting a new place and creating new memories, rather than buying a new pair of shoes or a top I don’t necessarily need. I spent 12 days in China and other than food, all I purchased was a pair of shorts (which I’m wearing in this photo) and a pair of socks and one pair of jeans. Of course I’ll buy clothes where I need them, or to treat myself every once in a while. But it’s been great getting over my binge spending habit, and instead spending my money more wisely and on things that are important to me. After all, I’d rather have a phone full of photos than a closest full of clothes. What about yourself? Do you consider yourself to be a binge spender?
In Yorkshire Dales, Gordale Scar is a popular destination among hikers and tourists. It is a huge gorge and its true size is only visible once you walk through the field and the Gordale campsite. “The path is more important than the destination” - I could completely relate to this statement while walking through this amazingly beautiful campsite at Gordale. Lush green fields with a stunning gorge were perfectly ornamented by a gently curved stream. It felt as if I was dreaming. It made me realise again why I love outdoors so much. Photography is just an excuse, being outdoors and close to the nature is what attracts me to these mountains over and over again. What’s your excuse? . . . #mountainstories#briskoutdoors#wearehikers#choosemountains#wanderfolk#gooutside
