Best INT israel hike general me

Hiking Israel (2017)
My first big adventure! An un-supported hike 1000km the length of Israel with my husband. This trek included a crossing of the Negev desert.

I went on to publish an award-winning memoir of this journey – Three Stripes South.

Kicking the States (2018)
Me and my husband kick-scooted (non-motorised!) the length of the USA from Canada to Mexico. This journey had never been done before and took nearly 3 months. We raised $10,000 for a school in Tanzania along the way.

Family Negev Adventure (2022)
Wanting to take our family adventuring to the next level, we planned a multi-day hike in the Negev desert. Between us we managed to carry our 1-year old and all our camping supplies (including nappies!).

End2End Relay (2022)
While I didn’t join the whole adventure, this was the biggest one I’ve organised yet! 700 women carrying a baton 74 days the length of the UK from Lands End to John O’Groats….raising £14k for the Woodland Trust along the way.

Expedition film coming soon!!

Paddle Pickup (2017)
I put together a team from Love Her Wild to become the first all-female crew to kayak the width of the UK via waterways (Bristol to London). Along the way we picked up thousands of pieces of plastic pollution.

Three Lakes

Three Lakes (2022)
Sponsored by Craghoppers – myself and adventurer Emma Rosen completed this world-first packrafting (inflatable lightweight kayaks) expedition. Across 5 days, we paddled and hiked between England’s longest, highest and deepest lakes. We did this expedition self-suppoted, wild camping along the way.

Norway Arctic Expedition (2018)
Joining 4 other women from the Love Her Wild community, we attempted to cross-country ski the length of the Finnmark Plateau in the arctic circle, Norway. We were completely self-contained, camping and carrying all our supplies on pulks. This was a tough expedition and we faced -30 degree temperatures and challenging conditions.

The Everest Adventure (2017)
In February 2017, I launched the women’s adventure community Love Her Wild. And with it I put out a blog inviting women to apply to join me on the Everest Adventure. The final team (selected from over 100 applications) attempted to hike the height of Everest over 5 days in the Lake District.

Petra on the Jordan Trail

Hike Jordan (2018)
Along with adventurers Cal Major and Mollie Hughes, I hiked for 2 weeks across the Jordan desert from Wadi Rum to Dana. There are no maps for the area so we had to rely solely on GPS navigation.

And all the adventures in between..
I’m addicted to adventures so there have been lots more along the way! Like our first family adventure 4-day hike and wild camp in Dartmoor. And Seeing a volcano erupt while hiking Acatenango and Sleeping in a snow hole to
Learning to freedive in Israel. One of my favourite microadventures was coming up with The London Bridges Walk challenge and also that time we had an 80m Abseil into Sodom salt cave!
