About Stephanie

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
– Christopher McCandless

Today I find myself living in Vejbystrand, along the ocean, in the Swedish countryside.

I made it here after a huge dose of patience with the visa process and a lot of back and forth across the pond. But of course, much more led me here.

My twenties were spent half in my beautiful US home base of Denver, Colorado. All 2014 I was working for S.O.U.L. Foundation stateside. All of 2013 I was living in rural Uganda working as Project Manager for S.O.U.L. (Supporting Opportunities for Ugandans to Learn). The foundation creates sustainable work opportunities in partnership with 14 villages. Much more here and all throughout the blog.

Before that, I was in Central and South American with my life in a backpack and the best adventure travel buddies by my side.

I almost settled in Australia forever after enjoying uni life too much studying at Bond University on the Gold Coast in Queensland.

The first place I ever considered home and a place that will forever remain in my bones, heart, and soul is Ski Town USA,  Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Nature has many playgrounds and in my biased opinion, Steamboat is one of the best places on earth.

I travel to revel in the beauty of the world, find compassion for the ugly and the brutal and connect with humankind in its freest form, stemmed from understanding and love.

I love the first breath in a new land after a long plane ride. The sleepiness of the trip dissipates and you are immediately brought to the present moment; a pleasant uncertainty emerges…a new adventure awaits.

I thrive and look forward to experiencing the sensory adventure (external), yet much deeper and beyond the external is how we relate to the emotional and spiritual journey. A great choice and challenge await as we come back to the present moment despite where in the world we find ourselves. It is our richest landscape and greatest adventure of all.

Understanding the world around me through written word and movement, everything on this site is meant to share the experiences, yoga, people, and places I encounter along my way.
