A place of natural beauty, simple living, and incredible people, a part of my heart with always stay in the Daintree.

August 18, 2019: An Aussie Birthday, a Cougar, and a Bonfire

Background: At this point, I was working in the Daintree Rainforest at an ecolodge. Luke, the youngest of the group, was just turning 19. Sweet and shy, we had a goal of bringing him out on a big night. Well, big by rainforest standards anyway.

Lessons from the Daintree Rainforest

This place has given me a lot to think about. It’s given me a lot to write about, too, but finding the words that even begin to scratch the surface of doing it justice has intimidated me from putting my pen to paper (or finger to keys when it’s typed up later. I’m an old-fashioned […]

Life in the Rainforest… Actually

I had to scrap this piece quite a few times already. Heck, it’ll be shocking if anyone ever gets to see it at this point. Writing about the rainforest has been such a curveball for me because there’s so much more to it than I ever thought there would be.

Some people have a real knack for extreme adventure sports, live for the thrill of adrenaline pumping through their veins, nerves that heighten the senses. Some might even say that jumping out of a plane or off a cliff are moments that make them feel the most alive. Those are the seconds that invigorate the […]

Snapshot: Milford Sound

Honestly, there aren’t even enough words for me to begin describing how spectacular Milford Sound is. Here are a few pictures to try and do it justice instead.

Kaikoura: Hike, Sea Life, and Reconnect

Nestled into a peninsula on New Zealand’s east coast, Kaikoura is simultaneously more and less than I ever could have asked for.
