Hi, I'm bex Band!

Inspiring personal growth and conservation through adventure

I love adventure! I’ve hiked over 1000km the length of Israel, crossed the Jordan desert, kayaked the width of the UK against plastic pollution and broke a world first kick-scooting the length of the USA. Seeing a lack of women in the outdoors, in 2017 I founded the women’s adventure community Love Her Wild, now with over 5,700 members.

Adventure helped me realise my potential (in all areas of my life) and made me realise the importance of caring for the planet. Which is why I want to inspire as many others to go on adventures too.

Adventure is now my full-time job. I blog, deliver talks and lead expeditions all over the world. For my efforts in adventure and conservation I was awarded ‘Legacy Maker’ in the 2018 San Miguel Alternative Rich List and nominated for the Great Outdoors Personality of the Year 2017. If you want to find out more check out the About Me page. For advice on all things adventure, blogging and being a digital nomad, head to the Advice page. And finally….don’t forget to follow me on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
