Hiking

Food and travel are, of course, essential to who we are.

 

A big (nay, huge) motivation for our travels is to give ourselves the opportunity to drink in nature's beauty while we hike. Hiking allows us to replenish our soul in the same way that food replenishes our body. Hiking through a forest, across a meadow, or up a mountainside are some of our favourite ways to truly savour life.

 

Here we'll share with you highlights of what we discover during our adventures; we hope you enjoy, and perhaps our musings will help you seek out and savour your next outdoor experience!
