Hi, my name is Marijn. I am 21 years old and living in Amsterdam. I’m an intersectional feminist, vegetarian, climbing-enthusiast, not forget to mention queer, more importantly I am me. I just finished my degree and now I’m a certified nurse. Instead of doing things “normal” and start working, I am taking some time off to do what I love most: hiking. I am going on a 2650-miles adventure along the Pacific Crest Trail. It will be my first thru-hike attempt, starting April 2020 going northbound.
It’s Friday April 10 – Today would mark my first steps on the Pacific Crest Trail. So I want to celebrate my NOGO start date by dedicating this post to the gear I would have carried on my way to Canada.
President Trump announces that travel from parts of Euorpe to the United States will be suspended for the next 30 days. I am feeling overwhelmed with emotions and thoughts. This post captures a snippet of them.
