With a little less room to roam right now we reckon a delve into the blogsphere might be just what you need to whet your adventure appetite. So, we’ve brought together a list of some of our favourite blogs and a bit of blurb as to why we reckon they’re worth a hit.
Millimetres to mountains
Our man on the stairs Ed Jackson talks about the highs and lows of his epic #NowOrNeverest expedition and the people that kept him climbing – helping him to raise a hefty £52,523.13 over the course of 4 days. Spoiler: it’s an emotional read…tissues at the ready.
Tales of Hiker
This is a place to let your mind wander and dream of adventures to come as outdoor enthusiasts talk about their favourite travels. Each chapter of the blog covers a new story and one of our favourites is fellow northerner Nikki who is covered in chapter 45 and completed a 30km solo trek in the Sapa Mountains. Her story is an inspirational one, just like her words “No matter how big or small the climb you should be proud of every step you take”
Wild and Words
Photographer and Earth lover, Athena Mellor curates her thoughts, photos and stories from her time spent in the wilds of the UK and beyond. A scroll though Athena’s blog is equal parts soothing and uplifting. Her lockdown diary is readable and relatable and her trail diaries are instant inspiration for your post lockdown bucket list.
The Adventure Blog
This article follows our very own Leo Houlding and team as they navigate a snake infested jungle and climb a completely new route on Mount Roraima. It’s also packed full of unique and quirky stories from the adventure community such as the man who runs a marathon every day and an attempt to visit every country in the world without an airplane.
The Girl Outdoors
Magazine editor and writer Sian Anna Lewis’ blog is for anybody who loves the outdoors. Featuring travel, sport photography, outdoor style, and gear reviews. A must-read is her latest piece on prepping and planning for all those future hike’s you’re dreaming up. She takes you on a tour of Komoot – a nifty route planning app – while she plans her hefty 122mile hike from Land’s End to Bude.
