Current expedition – Kicking the states

We are kick-scooting over 1,500 miles the full length of the USA! We are using the expedition to raise money for a  school in Tanzania. If you’d like to show your support you can donate HERE.

Catch up with my latest blogs here from the expedition. And follow our journey on:

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.

#9 Kicking the States; now that’s what I call an upgrade

My first thought when the alarm went off at 7am was disbelief that today we’d be crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. I’d been so focused on taking it one day at a time that I hadn’t noticed how far we’d come. But here we were...well over half way and about to cross one...
