Let's Hike!



Hiking is one of my passions. Exploring new paths and feeling the power of nature all around makes me feel alive. That is why I would like to take you to a few places where I have been. Let's start with the Currumbin Rock Pools. Where the water flows through a green path, running over rocks while birds sing a beautiful and relaxing melody. I feel protect in here by giant forest guardians.


While travelling in Far North Queensland I came across this waterfall running fast over a rocky mountain and forming a perfect lagoon. There was no wind. The trees were still and noiseless. Only the sound of the water could be heard there.


Back to Currumbin Rock Pools where I walked up a stream of water I was able to watch small fish swimming and curiously coming to check on me. The day was perfect where the sun was less hot and the breeze brought sweet smells of rain forest. 



Mangroves on the beach - a perfect shelter for crabs in Far North Queensland. The beautiful coloured leaves were floating above the shallow water while perfection surrounded the area. Just don't be fooled by the beauty of such location as it can be dangerous here too. Big crocodiles live in this area. Always, follow the signs, respect nature and you will experience it at its best.


I am always searching for amazing locations, filled with excitement and beauty. And I have found so many times places that make me feel alive and happy like this one in Currumbin Rock Pools. Love the peace and the magic. 


 I know that hiking can be tiring, so make sure to grab a good pair of trekking poles like these ones. I am using Ultra Strong Trekking Poles from Montem. I walked over rocks and wet areas. I must say that these poles gave me so much stability that I could not believe how much easier was to walk everywhere. With them there were no limitations!  Get 10% off Use code LNT10.


Beautiful paths did take me to beautiful destinations. 


While living in Laos, I had the pleasure to visit The Kuang Si Falls in Luang Prabang. A stunning location where the colour of  blue water contrast with the green jungle bringing perfect harmony to the location. An unforgettable experience. 


Let's end this amazing journey with a well and deserved rest. I could not have chosen a better way to chill out. Sitting in my HAMMOCK from Madera Outdoors while observing the surroundings. This hammock is also a life changing item. Madera Outdoor plants 2 trees for every hammock sold. Their mission is changing people's lives as it is creating jobs and keeping our planet healthy so we can keep enjoy this amazing beautiful world through conservation.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoyed hiking with me. What is your dream hiking destination?

Have a lovely day! xoxo Cris
