A 30-year-old woman from the Netherlands, exchanging being 6 meters below sea level for mountains. I'm crossing the ocean in 2022 to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. I cannot wait to dress in the dirt, lose my body weight in sweat, eat cold-soaked couscous for 6 months straight and hike many kilometers (oops. miles!) a day. Truly! Apart from hiking, I like fries with mayonnaise, dogs, fantasy books, and did I say dogs yet?!
