HOW TO PACK FOR ADVENTURE

Packing for Adventure

I have been beyond lucky these past few months, heading off on adventure after adventure with some awesome brands that I have literally dreamt of collaborating with. This week was no exception to what is becoming a very cool norm as I headed off to the UCI World Cycling Centre in Switzerland for an Adventure with the team at Wattbike and The Sufferfest.

Hiking the Camino Trail

When the opportunity arose to head off to Spain to spend a week hiking the Camino de Santiago with a group of awesome travel bloggers (Cat, Charlotte and Sarah) and G Adventures, I literally jumped at the chance, only slightly put off by my lack of ‘proper’ kit and experience. Minor details, right? We were set to be hiking the last 115km of what can be a 800km journey and bar the few bits I’d read in books I really had no idea of what to expect. We arrived in Lugo super early and after refuelling with coffee (much needed…
