Current expedition – Kicking the states

We are kick-scooting over 1,500 miles the full length of the USA. Our hope is to raise $10,000 to build a classroom in Tanzania so we can support children living in hardship through education. If you’d like to show your support you can donate HERE.

an adventurer

Fed up with my life, I left my job as a teacher to be what most people only dream of…an adventurer! I now live a nomadic existence travelling from one adventure to the next – going on expeditions, carrying out conservation work and searching for cool new things to experience along the way.

I’ve managed to make this my full time job through my blog and also setting up a women’s adventure community called Love Her Wild.Wondering exactly how I afford to travel the world and how I make a living as an adventurer?

When I look at the adventure scene I see rugged men with big beards, wealth and medal winners…  this is not me! I couldn’t feel any less like an adventurer if I tried. I was born in Basingstoke, a town famed for roundabouts, to a very un-outdoorsy family. I struggled in school – too clumsy for sport, too dyslexic for grades and too different for popularity.

Yet here I am an ‘Ordinary’ adventurer privileged to do extraordinary things all the time.

I want to inspire more people to go on adventures. Adventuring has taught me to value experiences over possessions and to care more for the environment and its inhabitants. It’s made me a happier and better individual!

If you want to know more about me, head to About Me or see what travels and adventures I have planned for 2018. If you are wondering how I do all this (adventuring, blogging, full-time travel) check out the Advice page. You can follow my journey on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.

#5 Kicking the States; the dreaded UTI

We’d settled on a route that went south from Portland inland and then cut West to join the coast following the 36 road. People kept telling us how big the hills were and how dangerous the road was via this route. I had started to dread the 2 day, 120km stretch we had...

#4 Kicking the States; feeling grumpy

I was so excited to reach Portland that I could’ve cried. Rest days are such an amazing luxurious thing on an adventure, especially after a tough stretch. A day off to sleep, sit, eat, drink and do anything except happy! We were staying with an Israeli...

#3 Kicking the States; a really scary moment!

This stretch has felt really hard on the body, and long. With our increased millage we needed to cover over 55km a day to reach Portland by the weekend. We don’t have much flexibility with dates and if we don’t reach a stop in time then we miss our on press...
