To me, having a baby didn’t mean the end of adventures; instead it was the beginning of grander ones.
Born To Be Adventurous is an online community hosted by outdoor adventurer and mother Annika Mang. Annika created it to share and inspire other families to get outdoors and adventure with their kids all with an eco focus. They also run a green up challenge and set the example as an outdoor family by reducing their waste to a single jar! A big part of the Born To Be Adventurous community is encouragement for followers to set their own waste reduction goals.
The Mang Family at Born To Be Adventurous
Our playground is the Canadian Rocky Mountains. We will go anywhere for just a night or plan a 2-4 week trip just to spend time outdoors. We hike as a family often on the weekends or I just take the girls on a hike during the week by myself. When we have the time we go on surfing and kayaking adventures. More recently I have started climbing and took my 3 year old top roping for the first time. My husband is an ultra trail runner with 2 ultras under his belt. He is currently training for a 100 km Ultra Trail race.
In the winter we spend most of our time cross-country skiing or snowboarding.
It is truly a great feeling when you get to share what you love with your kids!
