Columbia Women’s Caldorado II Outdry EX Shoe Review

A few years ago, I got a pair of Ventrailia Outdry Trail shoes by Columbia and have worn them nearly every day since, so I thought it was time for a new pair.

Later on, I’ll let you in on some personal preferences, when you head down towards Sennen or even Landsend. Although, as a general note, Cornish coastal paths are pretty muddy during the winter months, so be sure to be equipped…

Two Hoots Glamping Campsite Hampshire – Shepherds Hut Review

Over the half term holiday, we decided to make the most of our time and go for a mini-break in Hampshire. We found a fantastic, adult-only campsite called Two Hoots which provides award-winning, glamping holidays. Situated in a fantastic location, close to Winchester, the New Forest and Portsmouth, it really was an awesome base to explore the surrounding area. On arrival, we were greeted by one of the owners, who met us in the parking area and gave us a…
