  • I went into this Everest viewing trek relatively blind. Not unprepared, mind you...but I wanted to venture forward into the unknown with an open mind and heart and as free of expectations as possible. I also knew we were in extraordinary hands with our friend/ @eddiebauer alpine guide and Everest extraordinaire @melissaarnot (she’s summited 6 times and guided the Basecamp trek between 35-40 times so this isn’t her first rodeo). Once we arrived in Kathmandu and had our de-brief about what the next 10 days of our life we’re going to look like, it became abundantly clear that this experience was going to be one of physical discomfort, personal challenge AND fundamental spiritual growth. Sign me up. We also decided as a group to refer to our trip as a Everest viewing trek incase our plans deviated from the original goal of making it to base camp, placing greater importance on the journey and not the destination. 
In addition to living out this bucket list dream, being gently placed in this middle of this extraordinary country of Nepal and bearing witness to the customs and culture of the Sherpa people has been spellbinding. So much to take in, in every way. 
3 days in, I’m writing this from 11,500 feet, tucked away in the terraced village of Namche (also known as the Sherpa center of the Khumbu Valley) as transparent clouds of mist seem to obscure our view of the hustle and bustle below and then just as quickly, glide away to reveal the towering peaks of Kongde Ri and Kwande La. We’ve been acclimatizing here for the past 2 days, taking on some day treks to help prepare our bodies and breath for the travels ahead. Not sure what awaits us on the road today but this group is in it all together (with all the snacks and milk tea one could ever want)! Stay tuned.... #whyihike #ebpartner

  • A sunrise peak at Lhotse, Amadablam and the mighty queen, Everest. This trip has only just started but my soul is already forever changed. The power and energy contained in these mountains is humbling, to say the least. More to come....#whyihike

  • We are all BEYOND excited to share the good news that we have been renewed for 3 MORE SEASONS! Obviously that means we have a lot more laughing, crying, healing, growing and more to do together. None of this would be possible without your unwavering support from episode 1 and our entire TIU family is unbelievably grateful. So buckle up, we’re just getting started!! #thisisus

  • Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there... including my sweet and goofy mom (seen here cutting a rug at my wedding). Also holding space for those who have lost their moms, those trying to be moms, those with strained relationships with their moms... Today and EVERYDAY, we honor you.💓💓💓💓💓

  • While we only scratched the surface and saw a tiny sliver of this unimaginably breathtaking country, I can emphatically say that we were blown away and are already planning our next trip to New Zealand. 
Our excursion was two-fold: equal parts relaxation and adventure. It was also meant as a pre-cursor, warm up of sorts for our trek to Everest Base Camp in a few weeks. I didn’t exactly arrive with any set expectations but I sure did come away surprised at the breadth of the trip.
My biggest takeaway? 
Lean into the discomfort. It’s temporary and an essential ingredient to growth. Not everything has to be a thrill-a-minute. It’s all a part of it! We forded rivers. We slipped and fell in bottomless holes of mud. We camped on a freezing riverbed with sand flies biting the crap out of us. We also laughed more than ever, came up with a million inside jokes, took nature pees at every possible moment, sang songs, rafted down a river, summited an alpine peak, climbed many, many miles- including free range trekking down 3k feet...and so much more! There’s nothing quite like the bond that strengthens when traveling with friends. Seeing them surprised at their own perseverance and capabilities is a total joy. 
Most importantly, you don’t need an exotic destination (although- much gratitude in this case), a major bucket list goal to aim towards or even the social aspect of hiking with friends. Speaking from experience, the enjoyment that we all can derive -solo- in the every day hikes, are often the ones that carry the real weight and when the real work is done. #whyihike #eddiebauerpartner
