Christmas gift ideas for outdoors lovers

Since it's December at the end of this week I feel like it's now officially okay to talk about Christmas. Whilst Vancouver doesn't do Christmas anywhere near as well as London (you have to pay for its Christmas market?!), and there's aren't pretty street lights everywhere either (see the ultimate London Christmas light walk here), it's doing its best to get me in a Christmassy mood. But what's really got me in the Christmas mood? ...

Burst mode Vs 4k photo

I’ve been out and about playing with the 4k photo modes on my Lumix TZ-100 camera again and having a great laugh while doing so. Did you know that 4k photo helps you levitate? Well, maybe not exactly… When I posted about 4k photography after my break in Cologne, I got a lot of questions asking why 4k photography was different to just using burst mode. That’s something I asked myself when I first began ...

4k photography in Cologne

Like most bloggers I'm pretty into my photography. I may not know all the technical aspects, the correct ISO settings, aperture and shutter speeds for certain situations but I like having a good play around with them and seeing what happens. Of course, if I'm spending time playing about with the settings (as I usually do) great shots often pass me by. By the time I've figured out what I want the photo to look ...

The best swimwear for your summer adventures

Summer is on it’s way - yay! And with that comes a whole new host of adventures. Summer time adventures, more often than not,require some new swimwear.

Silverfox Travel & Outdoors Double Sleeping Bag

There’s something about camping that I love. The feeling of peace as you zip open the canvas and look out on to the fields and trees, hear the birds singing and smell the bacon being cooked by nearby campers. The sound of rain pitter-pattering when you’re all snug in blankets and sleeping bags, the sense of achievement when the fire finally starts to take and the texture of oozing marshmallows cooked in the flames. Sleeping ...

SleepPhones: The Must Have Travel Accessory

I've written before on how to survive long bus journeys (or long journeys of any sort really) and had I known about it then, there's a product that would definitely make it on the list now. Introducing SleepPhones. Or, as the tagline states: 'the pyjamas for your ears'. SleepPhones are a fleecy headband with patented technology whereabouts the speakers are inside the headband. That means there's now no need for fumbling about with earphones. Gone is the ...

Review: Travelon 15″ Underseat Carry On Bag

Travelon Bags Review When I travel I often opt for cheap flights to keep the cost down. You know the sort, those flights where hold luggage isn't included in the price and, on top of that, they're extremely strict about the size of the bag you do carry on with you. It can often be pretty tricky to find a bag that will not only hold what you need for a weekend or a week, ...
