A summary of hiking the Jordan Trail

Like with any expedition, I returned home from Jordan to a shower of questions, the most common one being 'how was it?'. It's an impossible question to answer! Expeditions are always so full and so varied. There are good parts, bad parts. Things that go well and...

THE ORDINARY ADVENTURER

Feeling like I wasn't making the most of life, I left my job as a teacher to be what most people only dream of...an adventurer! I have managed to shape a career out of my passion for exploring and sharing. I now live a nomadic existence - going on adventures, leading expeditions and carrying out conservation work.

Most people assume I must be really tough, wealthy and fit, but it's not the case. I'm quite ordinary and want to show that through my blog. A place where I provide very honest accounts and advice on everything I do.

Adverting has made me happier and stronger. Taught me to live a minimalist life where I value experiences over 'things' and has made me fall in love with nature. The life of an adventurer is a great one! 🙂
