Me (Heather) drenched and joyful in Mountain Lakes Wilderness, Oregon.

Hello, reader!  Welcome to Eating Ant Bums, a blog of travel photos, stories, and lifestyle.

I’m a recent college graduate with a degree in Biology and a major travel itch. This blog was first created to document the biggest trip that I never took – a gap year to New Zealand in 2012. And even though I still haven’t fraternized with the Kiwis or walked the Milton Track, my adventures since then have taken me all around the United States, as well as to Tanzania and Mexico. Now, in less than a month, I will depart on my next big adventure: four months in Peru, Chile, and Argentina with my silly, wild, beloved travel partner, James:




The piña coladas were so good, he had to have two! (Just kidding, one of those is mine.)

If you’d like to see more photos and stories of my (mis)adventures, please follow my blog below!

  1. Thanks for liking my post on the dialogue photo challenge. I noticed your gravatar has you at Lake Louise…one of my favorite spots from way back. Cheers!

    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    I wanted to catch up and say “thank you… I really appreciate your ‘follow’ as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.”

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…
