"Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sENse of what You see and wonder about what makes the universe exist.

Be curious.

And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at."

I am a US Army Veteran, a first-gen Filipina-American, and a Type-2ish fun lover. Also, a late bloomer. "Late bloomer?"

I didn't grow up traveling or enjoying outdoor activities/sports. In fact, my real journey into traveling and exploration began in 2019. I had always been curious, but the idea of going to a new country or starting to backpack/hike seemed expensive and daunting to plan. I made excuse after excuse but, really, I felt intimidated by the idea of trying something entirely new and unfamiliar.

My time in the military has taught me many things, but one overarching theme is that life is too short. So, I made a decision to stop thinking and just start doing. Even though each experience has pushed me slightly outside of my comfort zone, I have never regretted it. Instead, I've grown to love and appreciate spending time outdoors and learning from diverse cultures during my travels.




Hi, I'm April!

Get to know me better

A little about me..

I created this space for the curious and aspiring adventurers. I'd love to share my thoughts that I have during adventures, my lessons learned, gear guides, etc. My goal is to educate and inspire others to expand their horizons, feel at ease and more confident to explore, and enjoy new environments—whether outdoors or while traveling, on big adventures or small ones. I'm often inspired by others, so maybe I can inspire you, too. :)
