My Story

Hiking & Travelling

Exploring the trails

A few years ago, I fell in love with hiking and backpacking. I have since been travelling around the country to see as much of it as possible, hiking as many trails as possible.

Life is too short for all there is to see!

How I Got Started

I started hiking to get in shape because I had a backpacking trip planned for the end of summer. My first hikes were three or four kilometres with barely any elevation gain. Slowly, I increased the distances and found trails with significant elevation gain to get in better shape and be ready for my trip.

I will never forget setting out on the trail that first day on La Cloche Silhouette, where I would spend the whole week backpacking solo. It is an experience I will never forget.

I loved it so much that I continued hiking and backpacking and searched for challenging hikes. And, of course, when you are passionate about something, you want to share it with the world. So this is how Adventuresome Jo, Adventures in the Wild started!

On the Road

I soon ran out of trails to hike near home. So, I started looking further away from home, where my hiking adventures became hiking trips. I also share road trips on this blog.

My main goal is to make it across all provinces and territories! I am well on my way to doing just that. I will share all I learn while planning and travelling the country on Adventuresome Jo, Adventures in the Wild.

Occasionally, I cross the border to hike and explore our southern neighbour, the United States. If there are mountains and wilderness, I will add the destination to my list!

Where Am I Now?

I love the solo road trips and time on the trails. Hiking solo has its rewards; I find it rejuvenating. It is the perfect time to reflect and do some soul-searching.

However, I have found a partner who loves the outdoors and exploring as much as I do. So now, we plan our trips together. And I am so happy to have someone to share my adventures with!

We have a whole bucket list of places to explore and adventures to experience in the coming years! Stay tuned to this blog so you don’t miss anything!
