Over the last few years I had been carrying an injury. It had restricted my hiking for a while and also my fitness and the weight came back on! Well I decided to shift the injury properly and get back to my proper and fit days. 7 months later I have lost around 5 Stone (70 lb/31 Kg). A combination of very strict Keto diet (more of that to come in the health section), plenty of gym/walking, and motivation. I have used smartwatches of many variety in the past. I have found many to be either ugly, bulky, impractical or...Read More
I am often asked what apps I use on my travels regarding a whole range of subjects. Be it photography, money, keeping up do date and so on. It is about time I shared some of this with a wider audience on here in case any of you are looking to help in whatever you are up to.

Photography – Snapseed Apart from travel and hiking, photography is a main...Read More
The Gopro is one piece of kit I carry with me most of the time. Local walks or high climbs sometimes prohibit the want to carry a proper camera around or carry a backpack.

Quite often...Read More
No no, we didn’t paddle to Malta, for all you ‘feeling hilarious’ people will reply from the title This was a short last minute trip using only Kayak.co.uk and the KAYAK app. I was kindly invited to try it on a budget and see how easily it was to get all I needed for a great experience away on a whim!

Choose the one you want and you...Read More
It was my final Summer living in Cumbria, but still plenty of time to keep the gardencam rolling. And yet again there was no end of surprises and variety of bird feeder visitors to light up the days. You may recall the Spring highlights from earlier this year… snow still on the ground at times and young birds tentatively.. or bravely flying in for the nuts and seed. Well Summer here brought colours upon colours, of both birds and scenery. When I post these pictures as I get them, on social media, I am often asked again how it...Read More
Recently I had the pleasure of being invited to the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado! A huge 4 day competition and celebration of adventure sports, with lots more going on around. Music, arts and outdoor fun taking place around the events happening on the river, on the mountains and in the village. Of course all the action was taken using GoPro Hero 4s and there was plenty of opportunity to do so. Your browser does not support the video tag. As well as taking part in some adventure myself with some great people, there was plenty of time to...Read More
