If you're looking for outdoor kit suggestions, walking routes, cycling adventures,
random snippets of naval history and mountains, then you're in the right place!
It’s the time of year when people start thinking about winter holidays, if they’re planning on heading away for one.
There are so many reasons Finland needs to be added to that adventure travel bucket list, asap, but here are a few of them...
Cornwall has everything I love about walking; steep hills, rugged coastlines and everything in between. It's steeped in history and home to some of my favourite coastal wanders, with crashing seas and dramatic skies.
One of my favourite walks is a circular route, that starts and ends at the English Heritage Tintagel Castle Visitor Centre.
Lowe Alpine are my favourite outdoor pack brand, hands down.
Recently, I've been using the Lowe Alpine Aeon ND16 which was marketed as being very light and comfortable. It turned out that this is far more useful than I ever gave it credit for initially...
The perfect multi activity pack.
A couple of months ago, I worked on a project with the Royal British Legion and Ancestry UK to discover WW1 Relatives. I didn't realise at the time how many I had.
This post is to serve as a tribute to them, as we near the centenary of the end of WWI, on the 11th of November 2018.
I've also included relatives that served in WWII, later in this post.
