“I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.”

Mackenzie Beitel  Last year, I made a change. I decided to stop waiting for the weekend, stop waiting for the Summer, stop waiting for graduation to enjoy life and live in the moment. This inspires me every day to see and try new things and share these experience to hopefully inspire others to also live life to the fullest. One of my favourite things is when people tell me I look like I’m "having the time of my life” and I am able to respond that I truly am.  Instagram

Alice Bromfield Hi! I’m from England but I’ve just completed a year studying abroad in Vancouver, Canada. I love hiking in the mountains and forests, chasing waterfalls, taking spontaneous lake dips and capturing it all with my camera. What inspires me most is seeing people chase their dreams, no matter what anyone else thinks.  I’ve been so inspired by women who own their own business and are doing whatever they can to succeed with their passion- Instagram

Ranae Scott  I live a simple life out of a Honda Element. I dive dumpsters and cook off a hatchback, work odd-jobs in stints, ride a bicycle to the store, re-wear the same sweater for a month, sprout lentils in Tupperware.  While my interests may shift or swap with the seasons, my tendency toward simplicity, and love of learning, movement, and adventure--a combo often mistaken as restlessness--are happy to stay.

Mia Delcalzo Hello explorers! I'm Mia, adventure enthusiast from Cleveland, Ohio. In December 2016 I left my corporate job to travel the world as a twenty-something nomad. My skill set includes getting lost in new places, taste testing tapas, and walking in the woods. Inspiration stems  from everything, but I don't know where I'd be without my family and friends. Happy trails!

Brittany Carpenter  After spending 7 months driving all over the country in a Volkswagen Passat with my boyfriend and our tent, I have finally discovered what it means to explore. It isn't just about finding new places; exploring leads you to look inside of yourself and through the skins of your neighbors and loved ones. I am in a constant state of learning and searching but I have never felt this much peace. I am an adventurer, an artist, an intentionalist, and a woman. I love the earth, music, and the man that encourages me to keep climbing. #willhikeforpizza

Hailey Mawer Just a girl with a wondering soul and an adventurous spirit on a never ending quest for wanderlust. I am an avid hiker, backpacker and explorer from Alberta, always searching for my next adventure. A once Work-a-holic, now turned Wanderer: I believe that every opportunity you get to explore is a chance for self-discovery and is a constant reminder that we are always learning; to adapt, to overcome challenges, the importance of self-worth. Every exploration leaves me with a surreal sense of accomplishment and purpose, and reveals the beauty of places very few get to experience.

Olivia Frank Pretty easy going free spirited soul, wild at heart I have a love for nature and a passion for sailing. A go with the flow gal in theory,  but I always seem to take the route against the tide just for the fun of it. A barefoot sailor by nature I live each day with love and without shoes if I can get away with it. Grateful for all the little moments I am hopeful for the future and the day I will tell a good joke without messing up the punch line. Find me on Facebook and Instagram.
