Honest fact? I have lived in NL my entire life and have yet to explore even a 1/4 of it. Over the summer I explored Fort Amherst, the Brigus Blueberry Festival, went fishing, visited my in-laws dairy farm, took a bike ride around Conception Bay South on our Harley, watched a couple cruise ships exit the harbor, and took the time to soak up the beauty and pride of my homeland.
Alberta Bound I had never been in Alberta until our long beautiful drive cross country, to relocate Me loving life in Banff, AB! here 14 months ago. My first time in AB meant a lot of first experiences, and still so many to come. I had my first rigger experience, my first trip to Banff, Nakiska, West Edmonton Mall, Cross Iron Mills, Calgary Stampede, a motocross race, Joffre refinery, Canyon Ski Hill, and more!
Travel Bug I have been traveling since I was 3 months old due to the fact that my parents owned a moving company. We went to the Bahamas, Aruba, Mexico, Florida and so much more! My school trips gave me the best memories. In grade 9 I toured Quebec, as well as a big trip to Europe touring: Frankfurt, Heidleberg, Switzerland, Brussels, and Austria. All these trips will stay with me forever.
