Hi, I'm bex Band!

Inspiring others to go on adventures.

In 2016 I decided to hike 1000km the length of Israel despite being unfit and never having done anything like it before. It was a tough challenge that absolutely changed me and my life for the better. I didn’t want the adventure to end so I kept going. Since then I’ve crossed the Jordan desert, sailed the North Sea, cross country skied in the arctic and kick-scooted the entire length of the USA.

Adventure made me a more confident and happier person. It taught me compassion and I fell in love with nature and animals. I’m now an avid conservationist campaigning for EcoAdventuringHoping to inspire others to go on adventures I blog regularly and deliver motivational talks. In 2017, noticing a real gender imbalance in the outdoors, I also founded Love Her Wild, creating a supportive community and opportunities for ‘ordinary’ women like me to get out adventuring. The community now has over 5,500 members and I regularly organise and all-female expeditions and conservation projects all over the world.

Despite being far from what you’d expect an adventurer to be like, I have some how managed to make adventure my career. If you want to find out more about me 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.
