Rab Alpine 35 Backpack Review

  I love all Rab gear but I especially like my new Rab Alpine 35 Backpack; as it’s such a well designed and useful bag! I’ve been using it over the last few weeks and have really begun to appreciate just how well made it is. The rucksack has a capacity of 35 litres, which combined with its extendible top makes it a very useful size. So far I’ve used it for a few day trips, weekends away and a…

Dartmoor in the Snow & Big Balls Beanies

London Trip – Part Five – London Dungeons, London Eye & Boris Bikes

  We awoke for our final day in London with a spring in our steps and bounced down to breakfast. When the waitress asked us for any extras we both opted for the waffles, which were amazing! We had the return journey booked for about 4 o’clock but that hadn’t stopped us planning the day packed to the rafters with cool activities. Once we had feasted again on Park Plaza’s awesome breakfast we returned to the room and commenced repacking…
