Hi! I'm Liz, a college student who fell in love with traveling and exploring the world. I'm majoring in Park Management and Conservation and found some of my best moments occurred while I grew up hiking among the pines which is where I get my blog name from. There are many types of pine trees that all have their own unique beauty, just like all the places I have been. My goal is to explore the entire world and share my experiences and tips with you all.
