Why Blonde and Blistered?

First off, I should introduce myself. My name is Kristie Sandquist and I am Blonde and Blistered. I initially created this blog to write about training for my first marathon. Then, about a month later (and my second time on a snowboard), I broke my wrist in two places and the blog was all but forgotten.

Well, my wrist healed, I ran that marathon, and Blonde and Blistered became a place for me to share all my outdoor adventures and traveling experiences. I have been incredibly lucky to see some amazing places including the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, Thailand, the Philippines, and Japan. I have also moved across the world from Canada to New Zealand and am looking forward to exploring this stunning country.

Blonde and Blistered is a blog to inspire others to get out of their comfort zones and explore the world. Taking just one step outside your comfort zone brings you a step closer to adventure!
