Often, people become static in their hometown. People resort to doing the things they always do on the weekends. Yet, adventure is not reserved only for vacations. Each day of life presents a new challenge to explore your backyard. I wish for this blog to inspire and instill a sense of adventure in any person who has ever fallen prey to feeling static in their life at home.

As a junior at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, I used to find myself getting bored much too often. I would reminisce on memories of time spent adventuring in different states.  In late August of 2016, I realized how lucky I am to live in one of the most beautiful states in the nation. Now, I take every opportunity to explore my backyard and  I strive to help others find their inner explorer, too. I hope you can ditch experiencing life’s greatest treasures through a screen and instead find what’s hidden in your backyard.

Three words that describe me include: optimistic, foodie and individualizer. I am an advocate of sunscreen and a daily dose of puppy love. My parents, brother and friends play a huge role in my life and in my explorations.
