Microadventure in the middle of the Thames

Microadventure in the middle of the Thames

On the island there is a feeling of delicious, harmless naughtiness. These kind of spaces seem designed for pirates and parrots, schemers and plotters

Sharing swims in the wake of Roger Deakin

Sharing swims in the wake of Roger Deakin

Stripping down together, egging each other on to brave the cold water, finding simple pleasure in slipping your head under or watching birds flit between branches and fish flopping out onto lilies in the heat. There is a sense of everyone becoming part of the scene.

On a feral trip

On a feral trip

Dinner is always accompanied by a great bottle of wine. These rather indulgent meals do come at a cost, with pack weights sometimes eye wateringly high. However, we feel great food hard won can’t be beaten especially in stunning locations around a fire.

Made with Love in Bolton

Made with Love in Bolton

"I've been here for 12 years now and I love it, we're like a family. I used to work closer to home, but there aren't many of these jobs around now. I wanted to make something I could feel proud of, not slippers being knocked out cheap.

Returning to the Mountains

Returning to the Mountains

I have developed an uneasy relationship with the mountains, largely due to an accident I had in Chamonix three winters ago... Eventually, I could not resist the pull; their raw, unforgiving and slightly sinister beauty.

A smugglers getaway with Coastal Exploration Company

A smugglers getaway with Coastal Exploration Company

There is silence as we eat. It’s the best meal I had in 2017
(and I review restaurants).

Dealing with loss through a shared love

Dealing with loss through a shared love

Yesterday was exactly a year to the day that my dad passed away. In all honesty, I wouldn't have known if I hadn't been told.

Three things you should know about skiing in Scotland

Three things you should know about skiing in Scotland

We knew powder snow wouldn’t be on the cards. It would be like asking for a vintage bottle of 1921 Dom Pérignon champagne in a Blackpool bingo hall.

Our expectations were never that unrealistic.

But the conditions were wonderful all the same. The snow had a sublime Goldilocks quality to it: not too firm; not too soft; but just right.

6 months on a Polar Bear infested island

6 months on a Polar Bear infested island

I have never learnt this much in such a short amount of time. Living on a remote island is very different than living on the mainland! We have no cars, only two tractors. I have learnt how to shoot with a rifle and to use safety precautions in regards to polar bears.
