What's your next adventure?

Welcome to Unexpected Occurrence, an adventure travel blog. Find resources below to help plan your next trip!

Hi! I'm Anya

I'm the face behind this blog. I've always been torn between living a conventional life and leaving everything behind to see the world, so I've found a balance between the two. I call myself a part-time nomad. I'm always on the move, but also travelling slow and making wherever I am a home. 

Along the way, I've learned to love adventure travel and going towards goals head-on. Since I've started Unexpected Occurrence, I've trekked over 1000 kilometers, cycled over 1600 kilometers, and found myself in places I never thought I'd see.

Through my travels, I’ve learned to fall in love with the unexpected. Adventure travel throws us some major curveballs and you’ve just gotta learn to see the good in them. I truly believe everything happens for a reason, and that we wouldn’t be the people we are without a little serendipity. This blog focuses on the great things that happen when we’re given some unexpected occurrences.
