Marijn

Hi, my name is Marijn. I am 22 years old and living in Amsterdam. I’m an intersectional feminist, vegetarian, climbing-enthusiast, queer and a very passionate nurse. In January 2020 I finished my degree and became a registered nurse. Instead of doing things “normal” and start working, I planned on taking some time off to do what I love most: hiking. I was going on a 2650-miles adventure along the Pacific Crest Trail, starting April 2020 going northbound. My plans turned out a little different due to the global pandemic and I started early with my career. To this day I still dream to hike the PCT.

Storing Away My Gear

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.

The Mountains Are Calling My Name

Upcoming april I'm going on a 2650-miles stroll, from Mexico to Canada. In my first blog I will tell you about myself and why I am attempting this insane hike, called the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).
