Hi everyone!  I’m Sara Dhooma and thank you for visiting my page.  I'm a Canadian with a true passion for adventure and have travel backpacked in 75+ countries.  I currently strive to explore and long-distance hike through the most amazing landscapes on earth.  The goal of my YouTube Channel is to share my journey, inspire, and guide others to embark on their own adventures.

My first big American long-distance trail experience was a life-changing 1,500-mile section on the Appalachian Trail in 2014.  I still need to return to AT to finish from Connecticut to Maine (or should I just walk the whole thing again from Georgia?).  Last year, I spent six epic months hiking the Pacific Crest Trail.  I have a section left in Southern Oregon to complete because of the nasty 2018 smoke conditions.  This year I will take a big step forward towards completing the “Triple Crown” by attempting a thru-hike of the Continental Divide Trail.

I’ve completed several world-class treks including Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Everest Base Camp (Nepal), and the Milford Track (New Zealand).  My adventurous spirit has also led me to tackle lesser-known hiking trails such as the Kalawa Hill Tribes (Myanmar), Ciudad Perdida (Colombia), and the Chilbo Mountains (North Korea).  More fantastic trekking routes are established around the world each year to add my hiking wish list!

As a Peregrina, I’ve walked roughly 2700 miles on several ‘Camino de Santiago’ pilgrimage routes in Europe.  After an amazing experience completing the Camino Frances from St.Jean-Pied-de-Port in 2014, I became a Camino addict.  My ultimate goal is to walk all the major Camino de Santiago ways and document them on YouTube including guidance for logistics, accommodations, and daily expenses.

After a life-threatening pulmonary embolism, I left my office job in August 2017 to complete my hiking bucket list.  I made the decision while in the hospital that I would leave on an extended adventure after I was recovered.  Against medical advice, I am not taking blood-thinning medication because it may cause a fatal bleeding risk if I get injured in the backcountry.  It is more important for me to lead an enjoyable, fulfilling life, rather than stay safe at home.  I have been a full-time long-distance hiker for the past 18 months!

In 2019, I will be hiking long-distance trails on four continents – Asia, Europe, Oceania, and North America.  The Israel National Trail is a challenging 680-mile trek crossing the length of the country, including the isolated Negev Desert.  Afterward I will begin my third cross-America hike towards obtaining the “Triple Crown of Hiking” on the 3,100-mile Continental Divide Trail.  In Europe, I will hike the famed Scottish ‘West Highland Way’ and the two most difficult Spanish ‘Camino de Santiago’ routes – the Salvador Camino and the Primitivo Camino.  I’m excited to trek with kangaroos on Australia’s premier long-distance route - the 623-mile Bibbulmun Track.  The final adventure of the year will be spent with Mediterranean mountain views, ancient ruins, and Turkish culture on the 350-mile Lycian Way.

With your encouragement, I will continue creating frequent YouTube videos about long-distance hiking, international adventure, and the Camino de Santiago.  In 2019, look for new information videos about packing lists, gear selection, thru-hiking/Camino costs, trip planning and interviews with the hiking community.  I will be walking 5000+ miles this year and will daily video-blog direct from the trail with craft beer reviews, bridge dances, and enthusiastic kookiness!

If you’ve enjoyed my Youtube Channel in the past, and would like to contribute to its future, I hope you’ll consider becoming a patronBy joining my exclusive community I will be able to achieve higher-quality video production, cover on-trail expenses, and obtain travel insurance.  Thank you in advance for all assistance – including thoughtful comments on my YouTube videos! I hope that my adventures will continue to inspire wanderlust and motivate others to explore!

Cheers!
Sara Dhooma
