Oh hey, didn't see you there!

Welcome. Make yourself feel at home...mi website es su website.

My name is Meelad and together my gf Cassie and I created EXSPLORE in 2016. We'd just gotten back from a camping trip to Catalina Island and were talking about how maybe it'd be fun if we shared our camping and hiking experiences online somewhere, which is how the idea for our blog was first inspired. That same day, we started outlining our ideas and before you know it, this site was born and our first travel guide was up (special thanks to Squarespace!). We've been writing and editing non-stop since and are on a mission to provide nature lovers like YOU the highest quality and most entertaining content possible. We hope you enjoy reading our website and would love to hear from you, so don't forget to stop by the contact us page and say hi!

What's Exsplore?

The name of this blog, "EXSPLORE", is a combination of two words:

1. Explore: to travel over new territory for adventure or discovery

2. Splore: a Scottish word meaning frolic, revel, or escapade

Combining the two words we get Exsplore, a word which can mean "to love to see new places and have new experiences and being able to appreciate life and celebrating everything the world has to offer".


Our Mission is to

Inspire others to have an interest in nature and to lead active and healthy lifestyles, and to promote

traveling to new places and exploring the great outdoors. We want you to go outside more often!
