Yesterday I finished reading the book Continental Quotient by Kristen Lodge. The book is all about living in new places and outdoor experiences. I liked it!

In the book, Kristen moves from New England to Colorado and finally to Arizona. Most of the book is about moving to and living in different towns. She writes about what it's like to move alone and to make new friends along the way.
There are stories of the hardships of living where it snows, which I found especially interesting since I've thought about moving to a snowy place someday. After the nearby roads close for snow, Kristen starts carrying skis in her car so that she will always have a way to travel between her home and work. Eventually, she moves to sunny Tucson where she can experience outdoor adventures all year long.
I liked reading about traveling to new places, hiking and backpacking up high mountains, being an Ironman triathlete, biking and skiing. Because the book is only about 130 pages, you'll have more time to plan out your next outdoor adventure whether it's just a bike ride from home or hiking up a mountain - something you'll be inspired to do after reading the book. As for me, I hopped on my bike and went for a ride yesterday!
