only reason I wear gloves

summertime on my mind 🌞⛺️🏔
When I was growing up in Manila, the female role models fed to me were beauty pageant contestants and actresses who, not by coincidence, were fair-skinned and had long super straight hair. I had neither so I’ve somehow felt like a misfit - but I got over it and learned to carve my own path that don’t conform to Filipino society’s. I’ve done fairly well for myself notwithstanding (and fortunately). 😂 Social media gets a bad rap and it can be an overwhelming space - but in this platform, I’m hoping young girls get exposed to different role models they can look up to - which I didn’t have myself growing up. There are so many strong, powerful, and courageous women out there doing rad things and I do hope it impacts the young ones watching so that when they see women climbing mountains and doing strong badass things, they realize that girls are able and that girls belong - in the outdoors, in positions of power. Same same.
Got a sun burn last time I was here 🥶
I’m still shocked places like this are real
A Very Steamboat Send Off to 25!
Layers of mountains. Huge stone steps. Sea of clouds. One great experience.
Short mountain time > no mountain time. Fresh snow, blue skies and no work on a Monday - I mean, what could be better? 🤸🏽♀️
When I have exactly the opposite scene behind my window, I look at that photo and I’ll have hope again 😄 .. one day, one daaaaay!
We’re bring guests on a perfect 3 Day Weekend to Buena Vista. All levels welcome 😄🦌🎿.
Algunos recuerdos de nuestro viaje a Torres del Paine a principios de enero en donde recorrimos con Mario y Guido los impresionantes senderos y valles de esta reserva de la biósfera.
Este lugar lo tiene todo, y hay pocos así, te atrapan y te hacen volver una y otra vez para darte siempre una experiencia distinta e inolvidable.
Reserva con nosotros y vive un viaje único, hecho a medida y guiado por profesionales.
This weekend I learned that I need snowshoes and that I-70 ski traffic is no joke.
Is it important to make it to the summit of a mountain?
I have been asked this question several times and my response has kept changing.
Earlier, I would say, I love the challenge and it is indeed important to achieve what I have set out for.
Then I started feeling, that since there is no one else that I am completing with, it’s not really important to have a finish line, as long as I am enjoying the process.
Now, I have come to realise that it entirely depends on where you are and sometimes you don’t have a choice.
This picture was taken at Charchar-la pass, it took us 7 days to reach here, more than a 100 kms of walking and the frozen river we left behind had already melted. There was a forecast of a snow storm and we had no choice whatsoever but to cross the pass and go over to the other side to return safely.
It was absolutely crazy to embark on this journey in the first place but knowing that there was no turning back was scary to say the least.
