Michigan Explorer: Roman Kahler

The beauty of nature is clearly communicated in Roman's photography. From the shorelines of Michigan to the Aurora of Sweden, a timeless thread connects his art. As we got to know him through social media, the love Roman has for history and the land was immediately apparent. It wasn't until recently that we learned about some of his other hobbies and passions. We truly enjoy witnessing the experiences and knowledge he shares through his photography.

One Life on Earth: Colin Vestrand

Colin and his wife and kids have been our friends for many years. We've heard stories about the northern Michigan adventures through swarming mosquitoes to gorgeous lakeshore views. Now we're excited to share that they have opened a coffee shop in downtown Paw Paw, MI with a unique and inviting atmosphere, comfortable seating, and, of course, excellent coffee. One thing we like to highlight about real life adventurers is that they often have full-time jobs and accept the challenge of weaving adventure and travel into that lifestyle. Hopefully stories like Colin's inspire and encourage the adventurous at heart to try something different.

The American Field Trip: Madison Bowman

In order to bring their dreams to life, Madison and her husband David took off on an adventure in a converted shuttle bus with their two small children. They're hitting up the big 59 in the National Park System and educating themselves as advocates for public land. While life on the road with little ones is not the norm, the Bowmans are on a course that has lead them to experience America, and in the process, inspire others to get outside and connect with nature.

Joy in the Journey: Stavros Mitchelides

Where Stavros goes, you can go too! Virtually, at the least. As we followed him on social media throughout the last several months, we saw the overwhelming beauty of places he hiked and definitely added a few of those places to our bucket list. We witnessed the transformation of his Sprinter van, his appreciation for the history of the places he visits, and the joy he takes in seeing old friends and making new ones. It's been a joy for us to follow along on his journey through the U.S. National Parks and we'd love for you to get to know this guy a little and come along for the ride!
