About me

Industry Environment
Location Simcoe, Ontario, Canada
Introduction Sean and I discovered a passion for hiking while at university together in southern Ontario, and we have spent as much time as we can away from our computers ever since, hiking, kayaking, travelling, and camping across Canada. My love of birds, nature, and the outdoors led me to a career in conservation, while Sean has transitioned into the world of freelance writing and landscape photography. While we both spend quite a lot of our working days in front of computers, we take every opportunity we can to get outside and explore, disconnect from the digital world, and recharge. We completed our first medium-distance hike in 2016, when we walked 800 km along the Camino Frances, from St. Jean-Pied-de-Port, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. We followed this with a 780 km hike along the Via Podiensis, from Le Puy-en-Velay, France to Roncesvalles, Spain in 2017. Since then we have trekked the Camino Portuguese across the length of Portugal, Ontario's Bruce Trail from Niagara Falls to Tobermory, and Newfoundland's beautiful East Coast Trail. Lately we have been planning our next big adventure ... crossing Canada on the 28,000 km along Trans Canada Trail!
