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 have had a stand up paddle board (SUP) now for over two years and it has definitely had quite a bit of use over that time. I’ve not used it as much as I’d have liked though as having just one means that it’s hard to take other people out with you. Adventures on the sea are always much more fun with other people. It was because of this that I’ve been longing for a second SUP for…

  Hopefully you’ve already read all about my adventure walking the entire North Coast of Cornwall on the Coastal Path in just six days (if you haven’t then you need to click here!). What was great about this trip was that I was not only able to see every inch of the North Coast of Cornwall, whilst simultaneously abusing my own legs, but was also able to test out some exciting new outdoor gear at the same time. The physical…

    Since booking the trip to the Lake District, I’ve been excited about climbing to the summit of Helvellyn, especially because of the ascent via Striding Edge. This is the Lake’s version of climbing Crib Goch to Snowdon’s summit. Being a famous and classic route, it is considered to be just as spectacular as Crib Goch, though not quite as challenging in summer conditions. This climb would still test our skills in tackling a narrow, exposed ridge on the…

    After we had booked to stay at the Camping and Caravanning Club in Keswick, I started looking for things to do in the area. Obviously, I already knew the names of the famous climbs we wanted to do: Scafell Pike via the Corridor route and Helvellyn across the ridges of Striding Edge and Swiral Edge. However, whilst searching on Trip Advisor I found the very positively reviewed King Kong Adventure centre. I thought that this could be an…

  I’m always on the look out for cool and up-and-coming brands. I can’t remember how I first stumbled across Glower, but I’m really glad I did. They create unique hand printed T shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies for people who have an active and outdoor lifestyle, like me – and you!     They only started in 2014 and are basically two people, An and David, who did it themselves. They design the garments and then print them by hand…

    September is an excellent month for camping; campsites have reduced their tariffs, the summer tourists have mostly all gone home and the summer weather is still hanging on. Yes the evenings are drawing in and the chance of rain and cold weather are a little bit higher but on a sunny September Sunday, a day in the sea at Sennen is just about as good as it gets.   This weekend just passed we decided to pop down…

    If you were to ask most teachers what their favourite part of their job was, I’m positive they’d say it was the altruism and how it’s a platform to make a positive impact on the lives of kids. Personally, I also love the people I work with and how constantly funny the children are, such a rewarding role. However, high up on every teacher’s list of their favourite parts of their job must be the holidays, in particular,…

    My friends and I are lovers of unusual missions and adventures and any idea like “I wonder if we can do this?” is always met with a response of “challenge accepted!” So when I spotted an ingenious invention on the Decathlon website (now one of my most visited websites apparently!) we had to get it and have a go. The sporting creation in question is a portable basketball hoop simply called The Hoop by Kipsta.   Basically, it’s…
