Hello there and welcome to our blog.
My name is Alena and this is us, the black ninjas 🙂 We live in Vancouver, BC. The picture on the left was taken in … I’m tempted to say “the middle of nowhere” but it was, in fact, taken on Homathko Icelfield, a remote place in BC, Canada. The face hidden behind the ski goggles is me. The handsome man on the photo is Praclik (which means “little pretzel” in our language), my husband. I couldn’t wish for a better partner in our outdoorsy endeavours.
And this is what we love – far flung places, studying maps, exploring, sleeping in our tent but, above all just getting outside and feeling the world with all our senses. As Praclik says: “Nothing happens in the kitchen, you need to get out of the house to experience something extraordinary.” And we do get out a fair bit, however not all our trips involve a helicopter drop off and the suffering that ensues. You can say we are equal opportunity explorers who enjoy a variety of activities and a range of terrains.
We created this blog so that on no weekend are you left scratching your head and wondering what to do. We wanted to share some ideas on where to go and what to do around here, season by season, no matter what your experience or fitness level. We hope that it inspires you to get out and see all those beautiful places.
Remember, “Nothing happens in the kitchen…”
