My #AlphaMission Exploration: Islands of British Columbia
5/16/2016 9:31:00 AM
For actor Calvin Carbonell, new explorations have always been a therapeutic process. Now, they are a regular activity for him and his girlfriend, Fiona. When the couple found some free time on their hands, they decided to make a spur of the moment trip to the islands of British Columbia, sharing both good times and his MA-1 Blood Chit Flight Jacket. Below, Calvin recounts their island adventure, a true #AlphaMisson exploration.

I’ve always been one to explore. There are so many places to see and yet not enough time to see them all, so the exploration itch has been constant for me since I was a child. Since the start of the year, my girlfriend Fiona and I have made island adventures a regular activity. Myself being an actor and her being a dancer, we’ve both got a good amount of free time on our hands, and on a late night, last minute decision, we looked up ferry tickets to the islands in British Columbia.

Exploring on my own had always been therapeutic and calming, but I wasn’t hesitant at all to have her beside me. Neither of us had been to the islands before and had no idea what to expect, other than small towns and gorgeous scenery. Going somewhere without a plan is exhilarating, and the islands did not disappoint.

Endless beaches and weaving hiking trails kept things feeling free and unpredictable – just the way exploration should be.  We’ve been to Sunshine Coast twice, Bowen Island twice, Nanaimo, and Gabriola Island in the past three months, and we’re determined to keep finding new places we can escape to.
