Summer in the mountains in Squamish, BC // TRAVEL GUIDE

When summer comes to Canada, nothing beats an escape out into the wild. Sometimes you just need to flee the city, stand atop a mountain, and take a deep breath of that pure alpine air. Simply taking that moment to step outside and appreciate the immensity of nature is enough to clear your head and get centred.

Sometime last year I found myself feeling totally disconnected from reality with no clue what to do or where to go next. I needed some serious grounding, and I knew the best place to find that was in my home country of Canada.

There’s a place on the west coast of Canada that had been popping up into conversation amongst my kiteboarding community over the past couple years, and I knew this was where I needed to be…. Squamish.

In the shadow of the Stawamus Chief lies the small town of Squamish, the outdoor recreation capital of Canada. This is British Columbia at it’s finest. This guide will take you through a few sunny summer days in Squamish. And if you’re planning a longer stay? This is a great way to kick it off.

Get your adrenaline fix in Hood River, OR // TRAVEL GUIDE

The Pacific Northwest has this element of outside that seems to be firmly entrenched in the hearts of everyone who lives there. But away from the busy big cities and the coast is a small city whose residents and vistors have taken outside to the next level. Perched along the Columbia River is the city of Hood River, Oregon.

When you’re looking for that hit of adrenaline on your summer getaway in the PNW, look no further than Hood River!

Alright, maybe a little further… there’s a lot of cool stuff to see nearby too!

Caribbean adventure in Cabarete, DR // TRAVEL GUIDE

Baby, it’s cold outside. You know what that means, right? Time to book a flight somewhere a little warmer! If adventure is on your schedule, the North Coast of the Dominican Republic should be your first stop.

Whether you’re looking for jungle excursions or ocean exploration, the DR has it all. I’ve spent more than a year traveling around this region, and always find myself drawn to the energy-filled beach town of Cabarete.
