Micro camper van life

Micro camper van life

Pretend Vanlife With 2021 not having the best of starts when it comes to getting out and about, I’m super excited to share some happier news. After years of talking about it, I’ve taken the plunge and bought a van! OK, it’s not really a van. It’s more of a big car – technically a Multi-Purpose Vehicle, or MPV. Vanlife aficionados might well scoff but my pretend van could be the perfect vehicle for everyday adventurers who find themselves with…

London’s Cycle Superhighways

London’s Cycle Superhighways

Regular readers of this blog will know I’m not a fan of cities. As Toby, the steam tram from Thomas the Tank Engine nobly puts it, ‘I prefer the peace and quiet of the countryside’. When I do need to head towards the sights and sounds and shapes of the cities, I always try to turn it into an adventure. Shifting the focus of the trip from work and soulless offices to discovery and excitement. I’ve written before about ditching…

Hot Weather Commuting

Hot Weather Commuting

With today set to be another scorcher, what better time to kick start a new habit and inject some adventure into your commute? Who wants to be sitting on a bus or stuck in traffic in weather like this? Dust off your bike or a pair of trainers and get yourself to the office under your own steam. Funnily enough, one of the most common concerns I hear about a more active commute isn’t the traffic, or lack of fitness…

Walk to Work Day

Walk to Work Day

This Friday (5th April) is Walk to Work Day. What better excuse to kick start a new habit and swap trains for trainers? The health benefits (both physical and mental) of regular exercise are well documented but most of us feel we don’t have the time to make it a regular part of our lives. By using a trigger like your commute to work, it doesn’t feel like exercise – you are simply doing it to get to work. Cycling,…

BST is here

BST is here

It’s 8pm as I sit down to write this. The house is quiet. I’ve had my tea. And I’m a little bit giddy. It’s still light outside! BST is here and I bloomin’ well love it. Although we’ve only had five months of GMT, the dark nights can take their toll. Whether you suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or not, you can’t help but sense a lift in the mood of the nation when the light evenings come round….

Commuting: Better By Bike

Commuting: Better By Bike

I’ve spoken before about the merits of a folding bike to inject some adventure into your working day (Commuting). With Blue Monday just around the corner, the colder weather and the temptation to ditch the new year’s resolutions becoming greater, now’s the time to prioritise regular time outside. I love my Brompton and would recommend them to anyone but appreciate the cost can be eye-watering, particularly if you get carried away with the options list. The good people at Brompton…

Commuting

Commuting

For many people, commuting is the worst part of their day. Unreliable trains, heavy traffic, the British weather – all these can increase stress levels and put us in the worst of moods before the working day has even begun. There is, however, a secret movement out there. A group of people who arrive at work with a smile on their faces. For this group, the commute is an adventure – something to look forward to and, even better, something you get to…
