Janneke Vissers, originally from the Netherlands, moved two years ago to North Vancouver to have a life with more nature, space and most important of all: mountains. Having the summer off this year, waiting for her visa to be approved, created a perfect situation to spend some time hiking and discover Canada’s most beautiful mountains.
