On The Adventure Again!!

Hey everyone! 
You all made it through Monday! woo hoo! Today I have a lovely guest blogger here for you! Remember when I introduced you to my lovely sponsor Michelle from OnTheAdventure ? I seriously adore this adventurer! I was already pretty positive we would make great real life friends, and then I read her guest post and I am absolutely SURE we could have a great time following adventure after adventure together! 

Hey Michelle...care to hike the Appalachian Trail together, or move to Hawaii, or something crazy like that? They have snow on the Big island...just an FYI because I know you love winter ;) Think about it lady! 

Well I am off to sleep since I am waking up at 3AM to hike a volcano and watch the sunrise...oh this life is exhausting! {hehe}

XOXO

*********************

Hello there, friends! Boy am I excited to be camping out at Tippee

Canoe today. I mean seriously excited. Like excited times about a gazillion. Its a real number and its

really how excited I am! 



While Lauren is off on her own adventure (oh so jealous!), I thought I would share with you one adventure that I have been dying. to. go. on. Have you

ever read Into The Wild? I could quite possibly talk about Christopher McCandless aka

Alexander Supertramp for, oh, days... but I will exhibit some self control. If you haven't had a chance to read the book by Jon Krakauer or to see the film, its about an adventurer. An aesthetic voyager. A free spirit. A boy who walks the earth. Its about a journey across America and its. so. beautiful.


The first time I read Into The Wild I couldn't even wrap my mind around what McCandless did, much less what he saw. It was that book that ignited something serious inside of me. Ever since I have been wanting to see the world. To experience life. To soak in everything around me.


I want to start here. I want to start and see and experience America.

The wild, the untamed back country, mountains, and deep rivers. There is so much beauty here in
America and I want to see it all, starting with The Appalachian Trail. 







The Appalachian Trail spans from Georgia to Main and canvases a

stunning mountainous terrain. This exists right here in America, people! Why aren't we all going right

now?







There is just something about the wild. Something about living and

breathing and just being outdoors that drives me crazy in the best way possible. Hiking The Appalachian Trail would be an absolute dream of mine and someday I think it may just have to happen.


Have you ever hiked The Appalachian Trail or something similar?

What did you think? If you haven't, would you do it!? I would love to hear your thoughts!



Before I go, I want to share one of my favorite quotes from Into

The Wild because I just can't resist.








"He was unheeded, happy, and near to the wild heart of life. He was alone and young and
wilful and wildhearted, alone amid a waste of wild air and brackish waters and the seaharvest of shells and tangle and veiled grey sunlight." 


I hope you have an adventure of 
your own today, friend. You deserve it!
