My parents began taking me out on trails as soon as I could walk, but I really discovered a passion for hiking while studying Biology and Environmental Resource Science at university in southern Ontario, Canada. I met Sean while at school, and ever since we have been hiking, kayaking, travelling, and camping together. I am super excited to start our next adventure coast-to-coast-to-coast along Canada’s Great Trail.
