I was honoured to have the opportunity to write about my families journey living full-time on the road since 2016, what inspired us to begin this adventure and some of the lessons and experiences we have had along the way in the current Issue of @outdoorx4 #OutdoorX4 Magazine. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
I have always been passionate about writing, loving to read the stories of great explorers and adventurers who documented their journeys and endeavours. That is what inspired me to document my families journey almost daily for nearly 2 years and continue to. It was my dream to write for a magazine one day and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to do so for the first time for the amazing adventure magazine, OutdoorX4!

Grand Canyon Oasis 🌿. At the bottom of the Grand Canyon and at the end of the South Kaibab Trail is a the Bright Angel creek which is edged with vibrant plant life and cotton wood trees. We camped for one night at Bright Angel surrounded by towering canyon walls, under a roof of infinite stars and to the sound of Bright Angel Creek running down to join the mighty Colorado River. // #EPICFamilyRoadTrip #WorkPlayCare

On Navajo land in America’s Southwest are the Antelope Canyons. These Navajo sandstone slot canyons were formed by erosion caused primarily by powerful flash floods. The colours and curves of these petrified sand dunes are a true natural wonder. Check out Episode 42 of the #EPICFamilyRoadTrip where we take you through these spectacular canyons and to other amazing spots around Page, Arizona! 🏜 // #EpicFamilyRoadTrip #WorkPlayCare

The best things in life, aren’t things at all. They are moments; euphoric, indescribable, and extraordinary that fill a quantum of our short days that make life so amazing. Moments that connect the human spirit to the people we meet and places we are in and capacitates us to live fully in the moment with no distractions, no worries. To love the people around you, and feel at home wherever you are knowing that this is all Gods earth and we are all His children. It is the people that take a piece of our heart forever and give us so much to be grateful for. Everyday is a precious gift that is not about how many breaths you take, but the moments that take your breath away. Love unconditionally & live bravely.

Trekking the Matanuska Glacier in Alaska. ❄️⛏ Originating from the Chugach mountain range of south Central Alaska, the Matanuska is 41 km long and 6 km wide at its terminus. The Matanuska is known as a valley glacier which is a solid body of ice that flows through the valley under its own weight.
This was an incredible experience on my 16th birthday last July while we were on the road in Alaska. My ideal way to celebrate any occasion is to spend it on an adventure in the great outdoors. 🙌🏼
