My name is Devon Fitzpatrick and I’m just a 29 year old Canadian that has been bitten by the travel bug and who is also incredibly introverted, a tad weird, and majestically awkward. “Oh heeeeeeeeyyyy” 😉
I am an adventure addict who is obsessed with wolves and the mountains, enjoys hiking off the beaten path, skating on frozen ponds, camping, bird watching, volunteering for wildlife, and cuddling dogs. I also immensely enjoy spontaneous road trips, exploring new places, and laughing at myself and being amazed at my occasional cleverness and creativity. I am committed to transformation and I’m striving to live my life by a compass not a clock. Following the spinning needle of my True North, rather than the tick-tock of the hands of the clock.
I try to spend as much time as I can outside, even if its -30*C (ya just gotta dress warm people!). There is not a single place on Earth I wouldn’t like to visit. I have an unending desire to be better and make myself a better person.
Sometimes I eat cake for breakfast….
What Is This Page About?
I created this page to have a space to write down all the crazy things that have happened to me so far in this strange, beautiful life. Partly, so I have something to look back on and laugh at, and partly because I can’t quite believe some of the things that have actually happened to me. So if you don’t believe them either, at least we are in this together.
Like that time I was fencing in Australia next to a creek where I saw a REAL crocodile just minutes before…or that time I had to take a 30-minute boat ride to the nearest medical facility while I was volunteering in Costa Rica and get a needle in my butt…(and that was the option I chose…details later…).
While these aren’t the most glorious travel stories, they are real ones. And I wish to share them for my future forgetful old self *picture someone like Betty White here* if not for a laugh or two from other people who get enjoyment from these things.
Stay tuned here for travel writings, reminiscences of past adventures and travels and well, who knows, probably a lot of scenic landscapes and animal photos because I love taking photos of the Great Outdoors.
A person susceptible to ‘wanderlust’ is not so much addicted to movement as committed to transformation. – Pico Iyer.
