About Me

Hello friend! I’m so happy that you’ve somehow found your way to my blog Christina Lives Freely! This blog is my little corner of cyberspace where I share essays about my travels, musings about the meaning of life, favourite photos I’ve taken while exploring this big beautiful world and really, just whatever I am interested in or feel like writing about.

Since you’re here, you probably already know a little bit about me. But just in case you don’t know who I am, you’ve come to the right page to get to know me! My name is Christina, and I live in the beautiful city of Calgary in Canada. This city, nestled in the sprawling prairies under the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, is where I was born and raised by my wonderfully loving parents, with my beautiful and talented sister.

One of my greatest passions it travelling – and something I hope to write about a lot! I’m super lucky, because I got to travel tons with my family from a very young age. Both my parents love to travel, and this is something they have passed on to me. I almost always feel like a part of me is thinking and dreaming of far flung places. As much as I love my home, I love the feeling one gets when you experience something totally new; meeting people who are culturally so different but humanly the same; or eating unique foods that confuse and excite the taste buds.

But, I also live in the most beautiful place on earth, and exploring my backyard is one of my favourite past times. If you know me at all, you know that I love the mountains and adventures in the outdoors, so I’m hoping this blog can also be a source of information for those who want to get outside more and get another perspective on the things you can do in the Canadian Rockies.

I must make a disclaimer that I am NOT an expert or certified guide, but just someone who wants to share her experiences and learnings with you!
