The shoes you need for trail adventures this summer

I do a lot of walking. It’s literally my job. As a dog walker in Vancouver I spend my days walking and cycling to tire dogs (and myself) out. And then, if that’s not enough, I love spending my weekends in the forests and mountains near Vancouver. I need shoes that are comfortable, allow flexibility for cycling and aren’t going to have me falling face first into mud (which has happened!). Now that it’s coming ...

The Coat You Need For All Your Spring Adventures

Skiing season is coming to a close and kayaking season is here! Everyone knows that spring weather can be a bit unpredictable. We don’t have the phrase “April Showers” for nothing. So despite the fact it’s warming up a little, it’s probably going to rain on you mid hike or when you’re out on the water. The temperature might suddenly drop too. In those cases you want something that’ll keep you dry and warm, but ...

Rocky Gore Tex Waterproof Socks Review

But that's until I moved to Vancouver and discovered what real rain was. And, while we're on that point, if one more Canadian tells me that I "must be used to the rain coming from London" I'm going to...I don't know...but I will not ...

Learning to look after my skin

I spend a lot of time outside and that isn't about to change anytime soon. Im also fair skinned. Spending lots of time outside and having fair skin aren't two things that go particularly well together. There's certain things you have to take into account a bit more. I also tend to get pretty dry skin; especially in winter or when I'm hitting the slopes on skis. Over the past month of so I've been ...

Bringing your love of travel home

It's no secret I love travel. And, since you're reading my blog I'm going to guess that you do too! As much as I love travel I also really like having somewhere to call home. Whether that's a van or an apartment I'm not too fussed but you can be sure it'll be full of things we've picked up on our travels or that remind Thom and I of places we've been. Since we've moved ...

Best stylish waterproof coats for autumn

Since I've been in Vancouver it's been pretty much non-stop sunshine. I'm definitely not complaining about it since it's made me feel like I'm permanently on holiday, I have the best tan I've ever had in my life and my new job means I'm always outside so this weather is much appreciated! But, as I'm reminded time and time again by Vancouverites, the rain will come and when it does I'm going to need a waterproof ...
