The Irish Explorer is a travel blog dedicated to providing tips and tricks for the beginner backpacker and kayaker setting out on a new adventure. Every hike or kayak that is shared has been completed by myself. I want to share the hiking and kayaking adventures I have been on and what I have learned from each one.
My name is Eilish and I fell in love with the outdoors a few years ago, after my first overnight kayaking trip. I am a psychology major at Simon Fraser University, with one year left in my degree, I have learned that you need to go through life at your own pace. In the past I have worked four jobs and gone to school fulltime, taking four courses, and burnt myself out. For this reason, I decided to take a semester off school and to focus on some other passions, such as the outdoors and photography. That is why I decided to start this blog, The Irish Explorer.
