We flew with Vietnam Airlines direct from London Heathrow Terminal Four to Hanoi Noi Bai International Airport which took a little over 12 hours. The flight was really great and we slept well and were entertained by watching a few…

For the last few months, I’ve been wearing and checking out the Pentagon Geraki Jacket from Military 1st. This is an ultra lightweight duck down jacket and is ideal for all kinds of outdoor activities. Over the last couple of months, we have had some super cold weather which have given me the ideal conditions to test out this jacket. The duck down in this jacket is unbelievable, it is really, really warm. So what is down? Down is the…

You may have noticed but it’s been rather chilly recently. Over the snowy period, we were completely stuck and couldn’t drive anywhere. During one of the snow days, when neither of us could get to work, we decided we had to get to our friends place to go sledging. It was a pretty darn chilly day but we wrapped up in some serious layers, packed our bags and headed off. I was wearing my new Teva boots and Vicky her…

I love this time of year. A cold, dry, wintry day is such a fantastic time to go for a walk, so a great pair of boots are a must. As you may have already read, Mike and I were heading to Ireland for a week – our stay would include a lot of walking – so I decided to invest in a brand new pair of boots, in the hopes that they would provide comfort (I would be wearing…

It’s been a couple of years since I reviewed the Columbia Ventrailia walking shoes back in 2016. Since then, these awesome shoes have literally taken me around the world. They’ve been to countries such as Spain, Scandinavia, Poland, Slovakia and Croatia to name but a few. They’ve also been worn on 25+ mile hiking days on the Cornish Coast path. They’ve gone through sand, mud and streams and have served me awesomely. Although my old faithful Columbia Ventrailia walking shoes…
