My Story

I am just a girl looking to explore the world.

Too many people live their lives wishing it away. Wishing the day was over. Wishing it was the weekend. Wishing away five days of the week. And most of us don’t even stop to think about it! In the blink of an eye, weeks, months, years have passed. That was me a few years ago. Wishing away my week and only living for the weekend.

One day at the age of 22, I looked at myself in the mirror and thought, “Nichole, you have an awesome life. Even though your life isn’t exactly how you want it to be, you still have an awesome life. YOU are awesome. So why are you wasting five days a week and living it up for only two? Why not look forward to doing something after work? Why not make the most of EVERY day and live for EVERY day? YOU ARE 22 GIRLFRIEND! YOU HAVE SO MUCH OF YOUR LIFE TO LIVE FOR, SO STOP LIVING FOR ONLY TWO DAYS OF THE WEEK!!”

(Yes, I have quite a few conversations with myself daily. I give the best internal pep talks. Just saying.)

After that moment, I stopped wishing my weeks away. I made time to do things I loved during the week, and it had a huge impact on my life! I also started hiking on weekends, and this is where I found myself. Yes, I know. It sounds cliche, but I really did find myself while hiking. Nature has a way of doing that to you.

Then, I started traveling. *Goodbye bank account.* I learned quickly that New Hampshire’s beauty had nothing on what the world had to offer. I don’t know how people don’t enjoy traveling. Every aspect of this world is so beautiful, and I WILL see it all.

I found the love of my life soon after and dubbed him my lifelong travel and hiking partner. (He only enjoys the traveling part, but that’s okay.)

Traveling, hiking, exploring, and everything in between are my passions, and this blog talks about all of them. My posts are meant to be a resource for you to help you on your adventures no matter what they may be.
