You Know You're an Adventurer If...

Here are nine life-truths that you will relate to if you are an adventurer like myself:

1) Every time you see a tree or a cliff face, you wonder if it's climbable.

Gear Review: The North Face Womens Sangro Waterproof Jacket

I thought this week I would do a wee review of my ultimate favourite jacket: The North Face Womens Sangro Waterproof Jacket.

I actually bought this jacket new-with-tags on eBay for £49.00 back in 2015. RRP as of today is £110, so I got a complete bargain! The North Face are currently offering it on sale at £77.00 too!

Edinburgh Training Walk for Los Tres Picos

In the run up to Los Tres Picos this June, I will be taking part in numerous training walks in order to get my fitness up to scratch for the main event! Some of these will be personal, others are arranged walks with fellow EY Foundation fundraisers.

A Wander Around Cramond

This past weekend I decided to head down to Cramond to test out my beautiful new camera, but importantly I wanted to get used to my walking boots once again, before training commences for the EY Foundation trek in Spain!

Apology for the silence!

I am ever so sorry for being so quiet the past month or two!  Though I have been quiet in my posts,  I have been developing a few ideas over these winter months!

On that note,  I promise I am now officially back to my blogging self! In all honesty this was my moment where I hit the wall, and the hecticness of life got in the way of my blogging.  But it felt empty without a release for my creative passion and not spending as much time outdoors,  which is always where my heart and soul wants to be!

I manage to catch the odd photo of a beautiful sunrise in amongst the busy city life!

Gear Review: Coleman Instant Dome 3 Tent

I was lucky enough to win this 3-man Coleman Instant Dome 3 tent in a photography competition ran through Camping magazine, so for myself it was in fact free (woop!), however, the original RRP is approximately £99.99.

A Family Camping Trip to Mull & Iona

This past weekend myself and a fellow 12 members of my family - yes, BIG family holiday! - headed to the Isle of Mull for a family camping weekend, with the main reason for the trip being to spread the ashes of my beloved Gran and Papa on the Isle of Iona. Though it may not sound like the most cheery trip in the world, it was actually a beautiful weekend with my wonderful family in some of the most stunning areas of Scotland.
