Hiking Quarry Rock in North Vancouver

^ An actual getting to know you conversation where I lied about liking to hike but backed out 5 seconds later, afraid that he would ask me to go hiking lol it’s ok he understood Vancouverites are all about that healthy, active, gluten-free, organic lifestyle.

Snowshoeing on Cypress Mountain

I’m not much of a winter person. My idea of winter days/nights consist of snuggling up in bed watching Netflix with some hot choco, not tearing up the slopes snowboarding or …being outdoors.

Bye 2016 & Hello 2017 – Coron, Palawan

Finally! An escape from the cold -5 degree weather! This marks my 3rd time going to Coron in the past 1.5 years. No complaints! It’s been a different experience every time I’ve gone back. The first time in 2015 Pia, Isa, and I stayed in a tiny room in Mt. Tapyas Hotel and booked tours…
