Advice

I love nothing more than encouraging others to get outside and get adventurin’. Below are things that I get asked for advice on most frequently.

If there’s nothing in the below list that tickles your (fondant) fancy, and you can’t find the answer by searching the backlog of blogs, then go right ahead and drop me a line with your question here.

NERVOUS ABOUT A NEW ADVENTURE?

  • Read about how I wondered ‘what on earth I was doing?!’ when I went on my first adventure to America. And then on the next one to New Zealand, and also when I went to Europe, and before leaving for South America (you get the gist).
  • Read about first time rookie adventurers, the Adventure Queens here
  • Throw caution to the wind and watch my TEDx talk: ‘But What if I fail’ here

WANT SOME KIT ADVICE?

Know first and foremost that there are no ‘right’ answers here! You could navigate the Yukon river in a bathtub, wearing a three piece suit, if you really wanted to… But to get you started on a sensible path – here’s my kit list for cycling 5,500 miles through the Andes. And here is a kit list from running 2,000 miles through New Zealand.
