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 with my husband who is the biggest sweetheart ever, and our dog Heidi (who loves hiking) and cat Keela (who hates hiking).

This city of Calgary, 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!
