Hiker Babe meets Empowered Woman

Hiker Baby and Empowered Woman
Big fun leading Tori Eldridge author of Empowered Living on a hike in her own back yard.
It always tickles me when I can introduce a trail to someone who loves to hike, has hiked many trails in the Santa Monica Mountains and is as excited as I am to find a new one. I took Tori to theMalibu Springs Trail/NicholasPond that overlooks the Pacific and back canyons beneath Boney Ridge. As we switch-backed up the mountain, I huffed and puffed, stopping with the excuse to point out the views, while Tori barely broke a sweat. In top form, Tori, a black belt Ninja, makes Wonder Woman look like a wimp. Raised in Hawai’i, she is in tune with nature and loves the outdoors. Her eclectic acting/dancing/singer career has taken her to Broadway and back to L.A. where she resides in Malibu.
Tori  Eldridge author of Empowered Living

In her book Empowered Living, Tori suggests you make a list of all the things that are great about yourself to amp of your self-esteem.  Her martial arts training has given her an awareness that anyone, but especially  females, can benefit from. I travel a great deal on my own, so the message she is offering is very valuable to me. Being more aware of your surroundings and knowing how to respond in an emergency can easily save your life.

We talked about many things. Books. Writing. How nature heals and how it is big enough to absorb our pain. I hope you will tune into our conversation on April 14th  on Empowered Living Radio 

focused on how  travel can transform us. The best part of the interview for me is that I have made a new friend that I can share with, learn from, and hopefully hike with again.

  1. I love this blog! We had such a fabulous time enjoying the first day of Spring. Linda Ballou really knows how to celebrate nature and make every step special. I had as much fun hiking as I did during our conversation on Empowered Living Radio. And that is saying a lot! I hope you'll tune in.
