Sobre nosso Campsite no 📍Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia | Canada 🇨🇦
⛺️o local que escolhemos para acampar era na meiuca do Parque, super isolado, sem chuveiro ou outro tipo de comodidade, pois queríamos viver uma aventura diferente de tudo o que já havíamos vivido! E realmente foi incrível como deveria ser.
Mesmo os campsites mais isolados contam com madeiras cortadinhas para você acender sua fogueira sem correr o risco de cortar alguma árvore milenar para isso, banheiro ecológico no meio do mato, mesas de camping e um esquema de baldes suspensos no meio das árvores para você guardar seus alimentos e não correr o risco de algum urso pega-los (sim URSOS!) 😱 assustador mas super útil.
⛔️Treta: o que a maioria não sabe é que ursos atacam humanos caso se sintam ameaçados, do contrário eles fogem! A maioria dos acidentes com ursos registrados em acampamentos no Canada são de pessoas que guardam alimentos dentro da barraca e o urso ( com seu olfato mega apurado) acaba atacando a barraca atrás do alimento! Enfim, foi bastante assustador pensar em tudo isso e conseguir pegar no sono tranquilamente na nossa barraquinha. 😅ainda mais pq no meio da tarde, depois que voltávamos de um passeio de canoa, encontramos nossa comida toda espalhada pelo campsite!!!! 😱😱😱 pode ter sido qqr animal, mas pensamos logo no assustador Urso preto! Até hoje não fazemos ideia de qual bicho fez aquilo. .
It's a gift to be surrounded by women who push limits, vibrate positivity and don’t let themselves be defined by the status quo.⠀
Two of those for us are these girls – @jennymacnevin and @lindsmacc – the sister-founders behind @womenwhoexplore .⠀
The work they are doing to drop the barriers women face in getting outdoors and exploring is nothing short of amazing. We are inspired by them every damn day.⠀
Srsly. Just check out this shot of them (taken by @allypintucci) at one of their rad women's-only getaways.⠀
If you're vibing, go show them some love.⠀
I can admit I wasn't feeling super confident about hiking through grizzly country solo. I usually at least have my own brown bear with me (Bella)... But since she's not allowed to play in the national parks, I just took a few stops here and there to admire the views. I'm aiming to write a blog post with some tips about traveling with your pup, so stay tuned!
📍VIETNAM, Ninh Bing. This gorgeous place want initially part of our itinerary - it's not a typical tourist trail destination (I have no idea why, it's stunning) so we couldn't find a huge amount about it in guide books. We ended up mopeding everywhere to really get off the beaten track. I remember all of the children waving and saying 'hello' when we passed their houses. The landscape is breathtaking - like something straight out of National Geographic magazine.
Save up some gas money, buy a cheap tent from Walmart and just go. .

I'm honestly not sure what pushed me to do it. Maybe it was the words "you'll regret it if you don't" circling in my head again and again. Or maybe I wanted to see what it would be like to push my body further than I ever had. Or maybe I just stubbornly refuse to give up that child-like desire to play and this somehow fit the bill.⠀
Either way, it was by far the coldest thing I've ever done. Instantly, my body numbed, my muscles seized up, and for a brief second, I felt my brain want to pass out from the cold. That's not a sensation I've ever felt.⠀
There I was, sitting in a 4-foot by 4-foot hole dug out of the slushy top layer of a completely frozen lake.⠀
Somehow I was able to keep my body calm as I sat there for almost a minute. And sitting on the other side warm and toasty, I definitely regret none of it. My still-numb toes on the other hand, not so much.⠀
Huge love to @markharrison4 for capturing it.⠀
All four walls had water pouring down them, making a constant mist all around us. All my clothes and camera equipment were soaked by the end. Thank god for weather sealing 😅
I edited this photo (along with most of my other photos) with my preset pack! Link in bio.

Built for this kind of weather 🐻☃️
A throwback of Finn just because I wanted to see some snow pics in my gallery. This poor bear has missed having a true snowfall the past two winters. Let’s hope he gets something good this year ❄️🤞🏼
During our last days of our vacation we set out to walk along Fort Stevens State Park. The name of this vessel is Peter Iredale and it ran ashore on October 25, 1906. It was left abandoned then and people still visit this location to take a look at its condition. .
Have you seen any cool shipwrecks that you recommend I visit? If so, where? .

Missing this island everyday. Still marks my favorite trip yet, with my favorite people. Who you hang around is everything, make sure they’re rooting for you.
