Open Road, Open Water

Hey guys! Anna Lengstrand sent us these amazing shots from Northern Alberta, Canada where she spent her holidays. Anna told us that when they were outside adventuring, it was so cold that the camera would shut down, but she was luckily able to catch some truly awesome snow scenes as she embarked on a snowshoe adventure down Bear Creek. Check them out below!
Freedom, sunrises, spontaneity, Redwood, craft beer, beach walks, love, simplicity, adventure, rain, sunsets, nights in the van, smiles, paddling, sea lions, stars, picnics, cuddles, new places. Love and adventure. Departure into unknown land. I'm very thankful that we got to do this road trip from Canada to Northern California before winter hit us. I've felt very trapped the last few years. Stuck in one place fighting with immigrant issues and visas. So driving down South meant a lot this time: the right to freedom.
It's tough to go from a lifestyle full of world travels and adventures, to a place where you put all your time and energy into something completely different: the right to STAY where you are. I've learn so much about myself during these years of fighting, and I appreciate the small things in life even more now. This trip is the first time I allow myself to just breathe. Completely relax again. I'm almost there now. I just have to keep trusting the process. Enjoy the journey. Grow. Let myself be lost in new places together with my favorite person who gives me so much happiness, inspiration and strength. I'm back on the road exploring places far away again and I couldn't be happier!
Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps.
