I found these captivating mysteries by Australian author Jane Harper during our visit to Phillip Island, Australia. I finished both during the week we visited that lovely country, turning the final pages of 'Force of Nature' on the plane ride home. If you're interested in a brush of Aussie landscape and thrilling rush provided by the feeling of time running out, then these could be good reads for you!
PS. 'The Dry' is first in the series. 📚
PPS. Thank you to the small bookstore 'Turn the Page,' on Phillip Island that showcased Jane Harper's work and enabled me to find her!
TB to around this time last year when I was transformed by a lot of makeup and hair magic into covergirl material for @outsidemagazine ’s ‘the new female icons’ cover story and all-female issue for their 40th Anniversary. Such a treat to get dolled up along with a stunning group of badass women!

One week wasn’t enough, but I am grateful for it.
Next stop: 🇩🇪.
Kristine, we’re coming for you!
What a weekend!!! I’ve never been so stoked to be apart of this world! Realising how lucky we are to be alive at this time has opened my eyes how easy it is to make a difference! Becoming a part of a community and realising that there are so many people out the with a similar ambition and reason to live as myself! Friends have been made and there’s no turning back now! I’m sooo stoked for what’s ahead in life!
In my happy place 😃 😉 😝 Hard to believe the last time I climbed non-home rocks was in Bishop over winter break! 😰 School hit really hard in February, and I retreated into the gym, stoked to get super strong for spring break sending. Instead, I got De Quervain’s tenosynovitis, maybe from a weird dip, but who knows. It keeps getting worse even though I’ve totally stopped doing all the things, so I can’t climb rocks for spring break. Instead, I’m on the way to Cancun to get hella drunk & laid. 🤙
I packed up the car and headed south at 5:00 am on Saturday to make first load at Skydive Mesquite. sadly, I was welcomed with low clouds and high winds and they had to shut ‘er down. but those Mesquitens sure now how to soothe a broken heart :) Bloody Mary’s, margaritas, burritos and hours of skydive and BASE videos (and maybe one or two of raccoons wearing shirts, eating biscuits and/or riding tiny bikes)
but after an okay night of front seat car camping I was able to bust out 4 awesome skydives with like, 12 awesome folks I’d never met! now I’m hustlin home to catch up on all those miles I should’ve been running and those zzz’s I should’ve been snoozing.
