Even though I've been on the island for a few years - it's still strange to experience the holidays without snow. But hey, I'm not complainin' 😌✨
Like sitting ducks 🦆
Life goal: own a barn 😍😭. They’re so stinkin beautiful !
Hakai Pass on the north end of Calvert Island. The British Columbia coast is like no other. It amazes me each and every time I transverse it from its southern boundary with Washington State, to it's northern reaches with Alaska. Beautiful B.C. forever!!!! #beautifulbc #bcmagazine #britishcolumbia #explorebritishcolumbia #explorebc #flyoverbc
Black bear on the beautiful wild coast of Gribbell Island in the Great Bear Rainforest. . . . #blackbear #bear #greatbearrainforest #gribbellisland #wildlifephotography #BritishColumbia
I haven't been posting much on Instagram as we just moved last week. As well as a few days after, I jumped on a plane and headed over to beautiful BC! In the last week I've been busy trying to see as much of it as possible. I love chasing sunsets and I love mountains. I'm having so much fun getting to see all the beauty with my own eyes! My pictures just don't do it justice! This trip has made me wanna make it more of a priority to see the rest of Canada ❤️ #britishcolumbia #beautifulbc #explorebc #explorebritishcolumbia #beautifulbritishcolumbia #travelbc #travel #travelcanada #travel #naturephotography #nature #sammystraveldiaries #canada #canadatravel #instatravel
Always take the scenic route 👀
Weekend get away in Vic!
Loosen your grip on outcomes and destinations, and enjoy the journey 🗺 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #letsbehonest, life isn’t always super interesting and exciting. I honestly find myself craving—no, it’s more like requiring—a reset every 6 months, if not every other month. I haven’t quite figured out if this is my personality or if this is life. And I struggle with the *need* to know the answer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I grew up—like most of us—thinking that my path, my purpose, and my life will appear with more clarity as I get older. In a way, that’s how I feel like it’s playing out, but at the same time, I sometimes feel a little lost. And that’s why I disconnect (from the matrix, from the gripping, from the need to control) in order to reconnect (to myself, my innate softness, my purpose, my passion, my light) deeper. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trust, life isn’t @instagram. Life isn’t what’s portrayed in the four corners of the photos and videos we scroll through. Life is the moment between the bottom of an exhale and the top of the following inhale. Life is the moment before a grin. Life is the relief after a big sigh. Life is the sweat that drips from tender skin. Life is the silence of a heart-wrenching cry. Life lives in the everyday moments—especially those moments where we find ourselves lost, unsure, and uncontrollable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s okay to get lost. It’s okay to feel unsure. It’s okay to lose control. The reality is that life is uncertain. Life can’t be fully planned out. Life is a beautiful beast that can’t be controlled. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m learning all of this. I wander not to lose myself, but rather, to find myself. And I wholeheartedly share my experience with you, in hopes that your gain a greater understanding of your own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Give yourself permission to be soft. Move slow. Go with the flow. Loosen your grip on outcomes and destinations, and enjoy the journey—enjoy YOUR journey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #tobecontinued

There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul. -Victor Hugo
Epic vantage point of the west coast trail and open Pacific Ocean. And that sunset 😍💯
@daisygilardini - The Kermode bear is one of the rarest bears in the world. Due to a unique recessive gene, this subspecies of the American Black bear has white or cream-coloured fur. Just 400 to 1,000 individuals are believed to remain, in a 400-kilometre-long corridor of rainforest along Canada’s west coast: the Great Bear Rainforest. This unique ecosystem where everything is interdependent needs protection. Salmon are the natural link which connects the forest to the ocean, through their cyclical spawning seasons. Bears will catch a fish and then drag it into the forest to eat. Birds and other mammals feed on the remains, while marine nutrients, along with the bear’s droppings, help fertilize the forest soil. As conservation photographers it is our duty to capture the beauty of places and species at risk, and raise awareness trough the universal power of the images we capture. #TurningTheTide #SpiritBear #GreatBearRainforest #Canada #britishcolumbia #natgeo #natgeowild #imagesofcanada #bear #spiritbear #kermodebear #kermode #wildlife #wild #wildanimals #wildlifeplanet #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifecentral #travelcanada #explorecanada #explorebritishcolumbia #parkscanada #canada #canadiancreatives #canadawildlife #wildlifephotography #wildgeography #wildlifeplanet #nikon #lowepro #nikoncanada
I treasure these photos 💚
For the price of 11km and a sore, exhausted body, you could too enjoy this comfy, cozy, heated shelter. It offers the chance to make everlasting memories and absolutely beautiful views. Try it out for yourself. You'll feel more accomplished than you know. elfinlakes #elfinlake #elfinlakestrail #hike #hiking #hikenation #beautifulbc #britishcolumbia #worldcaptures #damgooddays #beautifulbritishcolumbia #elfinlakeshelter #cabin #cabinlife #explorebc #explorebritishcolumbia #explorecanada #squamish #squamishbc #pnwlife #pnwbc #pnw #westcoast #adventure #adventurealways #westcoastbestcoast #adventurer
My favourite pseudo vegan and a pretty sunset.

Beautiful day at Kicking Horse ski resort ☁️☀️ 10km oli pisin run, ja korvat meni lukkoon, kun laskettiin pilvien läpi alas. #abovetheclouds #kickinghorse #explorebritishcolumbia #skiing
