As a kid, teenager, and young person, I constantly had a restlessness in my feet, but I didn’t know why.
In an article published today in Trails Magazine—an online magazine that focuses on the athletes and culture of long distance backpacking—for the first time, I’ve written about how I became a backpacker.
For a lot of people just getting into backpacking, it’s easy to think that I was just born a Triple Crowner. But like a lot of serial long distance hikers, I came from a fairly sedentary, smart-kid restless lifestyle and transformed into a lady who lives to be on the trail.
Please check out the article (scroll down: the full version in English is there!!!) I’m hoping that by reading this article, a few people (teenagers?) may be inspired to get out there.
How did you transform into a backpacker?
