My Bucket List

This is one of my favorite things to write about. I love adventure and I get so excited when I am able to cross something off of my list. I dream of doing these things and going new places all the time. These are in no particular order since I’ve had them written all different places from journals to notes to my computer! If you have any cool additions to it, please feel free to comment below some of your favorite bucket list items. ūüôā

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.
