Laurel Robbins, travel blogger and social media expertA few of my favourite adventures include shark diving (without a cage) in Costa Rica, the Galapagos Islands, South Africa and Palau. I’m an avid hiker who can be found in the Alps most weekends, and have completed the Everest Base Camp Trek, the Tour du Mont Blanc and numerous multi-day hikes.  Before I moved to Germany, the Canadian Rockies were my playground.  I’ve recently taken up cycling, and have cycled from Passau, Germany to Vienna, Austria and will be cycling 1200km across Finland on the Iron Curtain Trail in June. I’m also passionate about wildlife.  Hiking to see mountain gorillas in the Virunga Mountains was a highlight I’ll never forget! I’m always up for an adventure and to try something new!
