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.

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-

Ranae-Scott

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.

I’m an adventure seeker and after road tripping through California after graduating high school, I haven’t been able to stop traveling.

I am currently putting the finishing touches on my novel that I hope to publish someday. I want to be an author but I would also love to be a travel writer. Overall I’m a young woman plagued by wanderlust who loves adventure and just wants to change the world, or maybe just a few people, with her writing.

Mia Delcalzo

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!

With Bozeman, MT as my most recent home, I am an adventure lover who can’t get enough of traveling.

I grew up in Traverse City, MI, on the shoreline of Lake Michigan. I went to college in Vermont and spent some time living in Ecuador and the Galapagos before taking off and moving to Kosrae, Micronesia.

I couldn’t be more excited to share my passion for adventure and travel with an inspiring group of women.

Originally from the Alberta Rockies, I have since lived and explored across Canada.

At 19 years-old, I decided to walk away from the societal norms and pressures to expand my adventures globally, travelling solo in East Africa and Southeast Asia for eight months. I am an avid backpacker, hiker and snowshoer, feeling most at home in the mountains.

I am fascinated by the disparity and misunderstandings of our world, always aiming to provide and gain new perspectives and insights on how to be more mindful explorers!

I’m a traveler and an adventurer. I think the weird situations I get into make the best stories and I like to do the things that scare me.

Mostly though, I’m a regular person just trying to have an adventurous life through travel and trying new things, and I hope to inspire others to get out of their comfort zone too through my writing and photography.

Sarah Alexis

Sarah Alexis

My name is Sara and I am a teacher who teaches abroad; combining my passion for traveling and teaching together. On the side I have a passion for writing and photography, and love to share my travels and life with whoever is willing to listen/observe.

Heather Gustafson

Two things my life has taught me are that one, life is too short; and two, you only get one “go” at it. I thrive on being pushed out of my comfort zone while striving to achieve what scares me because it always results in physical, spiritual, and/or emotional growth.  I am a lot of things, a wife, a mother, a friend, an adventurer, an explorer, and more; but what I really am, is someone who loves their life and is living it one adventure at a time.

Janine Avery

Janine Avery is passionate about many things. Among those dabbling in digital marketing, spreading messages on social media, and taking audiences on a journey through her travel stories rank high on her list of priorities. Raised by a menagerie of artists, creatives, scientists, researchers, biologists and botanists, it’s fair to say that her blood runs green – and it’s something she is proud of. She loves to spend her time travelling, yachting, exploring remote corners and cultures of the world and partaking in wacky and wild adventures!

Abi Arneson

When I’m not spending time writing and reading to wrap up my final year at CU Boulder as an Anthropology and Women and Gender Studies student, I’m always itching to spend time outside. Whether it’s a weekend trip or a quick hike to catch the sunset in my Rocky Mountain backyard, I find so much solitude in the outdoors. I plan my adventures around my very limited amount of free time – for me, that is what makes being outside so great. Hiking, camping, kayaking, mountain biking, skiing, and snowshoeing are all activities you’ll catch me gearing up for. Oh, and playing with my dogs… See ya out there!

Kat Clark

Kat was once known for being an experienced emergency nurse with an educational background that spanned two degrees and numerous post-degree certifications who meticulously checked off all of society’s expected life boxes. Today, she prefers to define herself as an adventurer, a wanderer, a seeker of joy, a writer of experiences and a lover of the outdoors. Whether it’s hiking the local mountains of northern British Columbia with her trusted side kick, Walter the weimaraner, or chasing the sunrise solo in a camper van in Iceland, it’s never too late to start over and adventure on.

Grace Harriet

Grace is a nomad at heart. She’s lived in three different states in the US and she’s traveled to 43/50 states and 24 countries.  A few years ago she got tired of saying that she always wanted to go places and have adventures, so she chose to make a commitment to herself to start doing instead of dreaming.  And what she found was that regularly escaping the ordinary for the adventures, the memories, the challenges, the laughter, and the new friends made her fall in love–with herself, with others, and the world.

Rebecca Moore

My name is Rebecca and I am a full time photographer with a passion for travel, hiking and skiing. I was born and raised and moved back to my hometown of Kimberley nestled in the corner of Southern British Columbia, Canada! If you cant find me skiing on the local hills or traversing mountains in the summer its likely that  I am off on a solo road trip or flying to my next destination! I love to share my experiences with the world and empower women to get out there and enjoy this big, beautiful planet we live on!

Rae Hadley

Rae Hadley (flash hearted adventurer) was born in the South West of England in the mid 70’s, proving if that was necessary, that it is never too late to get out there and determine the style of life one chooses. Loving the life she chooses, she travels across continents predominantly by bicycle (the wondrous and trusted Tilly) but not excluding the odd truck, train or boat trip when the time feels right or the opportunity for a nice chat with interesting locals presents itself. Living on the road for the past 2 years and with a 1 year English teaching foray in the middle she misses her friends, family, cats and a large bath tub with limitless hot water but continues to chose the open road over these joys and comforts … let’s see how long the experiment that is her current life continues!
