Hands up if you re a thrill seeker!!! If the thought of a pure city trip stuffed with museums, attractions and clubbing makes you shudder as much as me, this is a post for you.

Luxembourg: The Loveliest Little European Country

•••
After living amongst the chaos of London for the last four years, I have increasingly sought out relaxing, calm and quiet holiday destinations to counteract my hectic lifestyle. One day on my morning commute, I read an article about Luxembourg which described the little country as a peaceful haven situated right in the middle of Europe with a population of j[...]

Cruise Confessions (Part One)

•••
When I was 16, my mom broke the news at the dinner table that we’d be going on a European cruise with her extended family, and I was convinced it was April Fool’s Day. We weren’t “cruise people.” My entire childhood was filled with trips to the jungles of Costa Rica and skiing the Rocky Mountains. We were a family of outdoorsy adventurers, not fluorescent ca[...]

Underwater Adventures in the Maldives for Eco-Mermaids

•••
My first trip to the Maldives last year changed my life a little. Despite being in a relationship, I decided to go on a solomoon to one of the most romantic destinations in the world because I felt the need to just get away from things and clear my head. My only plan was to fall in love again with diving after finishing my divemaster training which had left [...]

7 Reasons to put Crete on your Travelmap

•••
Who doesn't think of whitewashed houses and blue windows to the backdrop of the even bluer ocean when they think of Greece? So did I for the longest time until I actually took my first trip to Greece and visited Thessaloniki and Halkidiki. There was nothing blue and white about either yet I still loved them both. So when I started to plan my Greek return I j[...]

How to visit 12 Scottish islands in 2 weeks

•••
Earlier this year, I counted how many Scottish Islands I had visited since I moved here in 2013. I don't usually count countries, but I thought - to heck with it - and did it anyway. With 790 islands, some inhabited, but many just pure wilderness - there is no way to ever "see them all", and so the counting became about something different than just ticking [...]

Can adventure be a transformative experience?

•••
“Human life gains the greatest part of its richness from --- any experience of stepping outside the taken-for granted reality of everyday life, any openness to the mystery that surrounds us on all sides.” Sociologist Peter L. Berger (1970) In the beginning of 1900s German philosopher and sociologist Georg Simmel wrote in his essay "The Adventure" that adv[...]

Rainforest Adventures in Sarawak, Borneo




•••
The world is tranquil at the top of the Kalimantan lookout. Swirling mist envelops us in an eerie silence, occasionally breaking up to reveal swathes of lush jungle below.  Electric blue dragonflies hover on fragrant orchids. Wild deer bark their calls in the dark rainforest around us.

 We have struggled over an hour along a muddy, slippery, leech-infested [...]

Gender Equality in the Climbing Community

•••
‘Have you got the boobs to try this route?’ That’s not something you hear very often. Or ever. When you look at it, tons of our colloquialisms are a bit sexist, a hangover from when that was ‘OK’ I suppose. Phrases such as ‘You climb like a girl’ to which I want to reply, ‘What, you mean elegantly, with technique and control?’ Anyway, I didn’t set out[...]
