Nature Adventure at the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish

You have to find that place that brings out the human in you. The soul in you. The love in you. - R.M. Drake

Hello. Long time no see 🙂

For those that have been following my posts on Instagram, you’ll know that I’ve been traveling outside of the Philippines since mid July, and with that said, I just want to apologize for the last few weeks of absence – it’s just that I felt this great need to unplug for a while and really soak in the lazy first couple days of my vacation. I’m sure you understand.

But now I’m back to serious blogging mode, and I’d like to show you what I’ve been up to these past weeks in North America.

First on our nature trip list was the Sea to Sky Gondola in Squamish, a community and a district municipality in the Canadian province of British Columbia, also easily one of its most scenic sights. It is every nature lover’s dream — a doorway to all year round outdoor adventure that includes hiking, interpretive walks, panoramic views, viewing platforms…and a huge Summit Lodge that offers a self-serve dining experience featuring fresh, local ingredients.

I don’t know about you, but when I’m in the concrete jungle that is Manila, I daydream a lot about being surrounded by nature. I think about forests full of trees, mountains, lakes and flowers…and even though it’s just my imagination, it brings me to a place where I feel like I can really breathe.

So when I am faced with the real thing, I feel so much joy in my heart that I feel like it could seriously explode.

Pure bliss written all over my face :)

And even just the simple pleasure of being able to walk amidst such beautiful surroundings…

is something I have learned to never take for granted after spending countless of hours stuck in heavy rush hour traffic.

So this is what it feels like to have the world at your feet :)

Not that the Philippines isn’t beautiful. In fact, for all its flaws, I still think it is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

But I do wish I didn’t have to travel more than two hours just to see some semblance of greenery. Wouldn’t it be so nice if Metro Manila could learn to nurture nature?

Well, maybe one day. But in the meantime, I hope you feel refreshed and just a little more relaxed after seeing these photos…

…and hopefully they carry you through the stress of another crazy Monday 🙂
