Naturalist hikes and plant identification are my main jam, considering I am an enormous plant nerd. I didn't have a very athletic or outdoorsy upbringing, so most outdoor activities like kayaking, canoeing, and camping are fairly new to me! I love doing them, but I definitely consider myself a beginner.
I'd love to hike the Kalalau trail, but I'm not comfortable doing it with myself so I'd like to go with a new friend or two, especially since I don't have years of experience with major hikes and camping. I'd also love to try surfing, paddle boarding, and any other recommended Hawaii watersport, and become a better swimmer! I'm up to try anything new that isn't too extreme (no basejumping for me, haha) provided I can handle it physically.
I will be staying in South Kauai, in Kalaheo. I won't have access to a car, but am willing to take a bus or bike depending on the distance, or chip in money to carpool!
Feel free to email me and we can exchange numbers for texting!
I am a Canadian horticulture student interning in Kauai from June to August
