Trekking through the high páramo of Parque Nacional Sangay. A breathtaking, 3 day trek that will be imprinted in my memory forever as one of the most beautiful and inspiring places I have ever seen. Every now and then, I stopped my journey to just look, feel and absorb my surroundings. I'm eternally grateful to have had experienced such a magical place. It's just another reminder of how precious the natural wilderness is and how important it is for us to keep such places as they are: untouched and wild.
Today is my one year anniversary of traveling! It has been an EPIC adventure this year. Rocks were climbed, new foods were discovered, country borders were crossed by motorbike, sea cliffs were jumped off of, countless dogs and cats were showered with my affection, beers were drunk until we got drunk, new friendships were formed, no serious food poisoning occurred, traveling by boat was frequent, learning about different cultures was experienced, my parents’ constant nagging for me to come home failed so they flew across the world to join me on my travels ❤, appreciating what I have at home in USA was highlighted and becoming a minimalist was forced upon me 😢 (can’t travel long-term with a lot of things!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌏 COUNTRIES VISITED: Thailand (5x), Vietnam (3x), Laos (3x), Malaysia, South Korea, Cambodia, Hong Kong (2x), China (2x), Myanmar and Singapore ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This grand journey has given me more knowledge about the world and taught me more about myself. I feel like a different and better person now and I hope to use this gift to continue to inspire you all to travel! I’m going to compile all travel info into my blog over the next few months so I can help you all travel with ease! Stay tuned for this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
By the way, I’m going to start tutoring conversational American English online privately. I’m a native English speaker born in USA. I have a Bachelor degree in Communications (graduated top 10% of my class)😉. DM me if you’re interested or if you know someone who is interested. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thanks Mom for the photo ❤!
Hi! This is Michael and Brigid! We love to travel and we love to cook! We have an old cast iron skillet which Michael inherited from Harold, his great-uncle. Harold fixed the handle of the skillet by carefully braising it with Brass! Before he met me, Michael took this pan with him on and epic motorcycle trip, cooking his meals for about 2 years of traveling in Latin and South America. That pan has seen a lot of the world! And, it has been named after the man who took the time to take care of it originally, Harold.
Since then, we have been making all kinds of incredible, 1-skillet meals using this skillet and local ingredients from wherever we are. We hope that we will be able to continue traveling and cooking with Harold and sharing these amazing flavors, recipes and cultures as we do so.
So....that gives you the background behind this IG profile. We have hopes of expanding this concept to blogs and etc... For this trip, we will be traveling in Chile for 3 weeks and doing 2 weeks of backpacking in Patagonia, Chile!!!!! So,(after that long intro 🤪), we won’t be able to take Harold. 😫 But, we will be traveling, seeing incredible things, meeting all kinds of beautiful people, hiking, camping and, cooking! There will be some fun meals made and incredible scenery. And, we will be sharing that with you as much as we can! So, please stayed tuned
