I am going to be hiking the Appalachian Trail starting in Spring of 2016. Originally I was planning on completing this adventure on my own, but my boyfriend got caught up in my enthusiasm and decided he was going to join me. The next year is going to be spent up to our necks in gear decisions, food prep, and training hikes (please reach out if you want to hike around Santa Cruz/CA, we always welcome additional hiking buddies!). Anyway. Just making a general announcement. If you didn't know it, now you know it.
(noun) A German untranslatable word, vorfreude is defined as the intense euphoric sensation you experience from thinking about future plans and daydreams. This beautiful feeling is a natural reaction the human mind manifests from expectations of future pleasures and joyful anticipations, such as planning a trip, going on a date, and many other fulfilling, life-changing events.
