Last year, in the first lockdown, the lovely people at Country Walking magazine wrote a short guide with suggestions to keep your walks interesting as you went outside for your daily exercise, (May 2020). Now, in our thirdContinue reading “6 ways to keep your walk interesting during the Lockdown”
Someone that has been appearing on a lot of my social media feeds at the moment is a guy called Wim Hof, also know as The Ice Man. After doing some reading, I decided to try his 20 day cold shower challenge. (FYI, I started this in October/ November). The theory behind having a dailyContinue reading “I tried the Wim Hof Cold Shower Challenge”
The end of a year is always accompanied by end of year round ups. People reflecting on their highs and lows from the past 12 months. Last year, at the end of 2019, lots of people looked back at the previous decade, and were excited to see how 2020 would turn out. It may notContinue reading “A word for the New Year.”
It was my birthday the other week.

A few people have asked me how my walk is coming on, so here’s a little update, it’s on pause.

I love adventures. I love reading adventure blogs. I love watching tv shows and films about travelling and expeditions. I follow people on social media that are #LivingTheirBestLives. Image after image of amazing people experiencing things that I can only dream of. ‘I’d love to go on an adventure,’ I say to anyone that willContinue reading “The 6 excuses that stop me from going on adventures (and how I’m going to ignore them)”
I’ve been meaning to go to Haldon Forest Park for a while. When I lived in Exeter I would come here quite a lot for it’s well marked trails. It’s perfect for when you want a long circular walk and don’t want to use your energy reading a map. We are really lucky in theContinue reading “Haldon Forest Park”
Every adventure needs a name, and one of my first ideas was Cornwall to Compostela. I was excited, it seemed to perfectly describe the challenge I was undertaking.
