As part of my fun in the outdoors I have become a Brand Ambassador for Livingstone Brand, an amazing company that, like me, is passionate about the natural environment. Livingstone Brand is based in Calgary, Alberta Canada and its name drawn from the nearby magnificent Livingstone River. I truly identify with their mission which is to spread the love we have for the outdoors. They do this by providing high quality, durable, and safe outdoor gear and apparel and I do this by showing you how I use their product to enjoy my outdoor adventures and in sharing my images I hope this helps inspire your own travels. Livingstone Brand wants each of their products to reflect the elements we appreciate about our planets wild landscapes. They make a fantastic backpack that you will see featured in my social media posts.

About Tracy Gibson

I started out studying a Bachelor of Communications but was quickly drawn away from the corporate arena by my love of the outdoors. Since then I have been leading Outdoor Education and Kayaking programs in Australia and around the world. Even though I grew up on horseback and hiking around a rural property it was my love of the water and all things adventure that lead me to pursuing a professional career as a Kayaking Instructor. I have found over the years it is an amazing way to explore the planet. It’s the sense of freedom that kayaking provides and the endless variety in what you will experience in a day on the water that is so exciting, challenging and rewarding. It has a way of changing the way you look at the world, engage with people and appreciate what our environment has to offer us as a teacher. Combining my love of the surf with kayaking I have also represented Australia at the Surf Kayak World Championships in 2007, 2009 and 2013 where I took out the title of Women’s HP World Champion.

I started making videos and writing Blogs about my travels just as a way to record the journey. It is the best way I found to savour the moments and photos, remember the people and places and to reminisce later to inspire my next experience. Whilst I still love to guide trips and coach, I am also combining my love of writing and adventure into a new direction with local Tourism to continue to promote our wonderful natural environment.
