Sophia Zalipsky hiking with sisters Melania and Victoria in a rainforest near Arenal Volcano, Costa Rica in June 2014.

Sophia went on a nearly 6 hour hike through the Carpathian Mountains in Western Ukraine (June 2013). Along the way she visited some of the wooden homes, churches and monasteries located in this very isolated, beautiful area; and of course, Sophia spotted a wild horse in the wooded hillside.
