Review: KEEN Terradora Ethos Hiking Trainers

I’ll be honest, I have never been one for hiking, walking yes, hiking – not so much. However, during the winter just gone, I invested in a big, sturdy pair of hiking boots and used them quite a lot. The thing about them is they are big and chunky and…

Product Review: Thermos Light and Compact Flask, 0.35L

I’ve got a confession. I may have ‘borrowed’ Mr ESLT’s flask a few months ago and I may have misplaced it, ok I did misplace it, but never told him. Since then I have denied all knowledge of ever even seeing it. I know, I know, I’m a bad person.…

Christmas 2017: We Ate, We Drank, We Were Merry

Mr ESLT and I have been together 11 years and during that time he has had the whole of 2 Christmas Days off but that was ok because I didn’t particularly ‘like’ Christmas anyway having lost my mum over a decade ago, my dad not being in the picture and…

Aaptiv: Long Term Goals and Travelling With A Personal Trainer

Having spent a month on the West Coast of America and eating ALL the burgers, Cheetos and M&Ms I could stuff into my mouth, it was evident on my return that things had to change! Travelling is amazing, I’m sure you all agree, and the food I discover whilst travelling…

Roam Far and Wide with a YRoam Portable Wi-Fi Device

So the game has just changed when it comes to roaming charges in Europe following a European Commission ruling. It now means that if your mobile phone contract was taken out in one EU country, you can now use your phone – calls, texts and data, in any other EU…

Scratching Countries Off Your Bucket List with Voyage Mapper

‘How many countries have you visited?’ can be a very tough question to answer, maybe you have never made a list or simply cannot remember. There is also the age-old argument of should we even count countries in the first place? A country can be massive, so by visiting just…

Chocolate Lover? Power Up With Protein On The Go!

Eating ‘right’ when travelling can be a tough challenge, with so many great options available it’s often too easy just to eat ALL the food. I’m a nightmare for making the wrong choices. I like to think that I can eat everything I want whilst travelling because I walk a lot…

Protecting Your Digital Identity Whilst Travelling

As an emergency planning professional by day, you’d think I’d know more about RFiD and how it can be used to steal people’s details and/or identity. Unfortunately, up until a couple of weeks ago, I’ll be honest, I had never even heard of it. Liveventure sent us a couple of…

Pro Packing Cubes – Do They Really Make Packing Easier?

Planning and preparing for a trip, I think over the years I have managed to get down to a fine art. Packing on the other hand, I’ll openly admit, I’m rubbish at! For me it’s the most tedious part of travel and something I wish I didn’t have to do.…

Power Up On The Go With A Phinexi iPhone Case

As an avid traveller and travel blogger the need to keep my mobile phone charged at all times is paramount. For me my mobile phone is an essential item when travelling, probably second only to my passport (and Mr ESLT of course), it allows me to make calls, send texts,…

American Tourister Sunbeam Medium Spinner Suitcase

Finding the right bag for a long weekend can often be tricky. I have cabin bags and hold bags galore, but for our recent road trip to the Lake District and up in to Scotland everyone I have seemed to either be too small, especially because I had to pack…

American Tourister Herolite Lifestyle Spinner Suitcase

Travelling with a carry on can be a minefield, seeing as though each airline has different dimension and weight allowances. What’s good for one may be refused on another and no one wants to get to their departure gate to be told their bag is too big or too heavy.…

Samsonite Lite DLX Spinner Suitcase

We take a LOT of trips with hand luggage only, therefore it is imperative that we have fit for purpose cases. Most, if not all, budget airlines have very strict regulations on what dimensions and weight your hand luggage must be. With this in mind, I always choose a bag/case…

Ladival Sun Protection For Safe Fun In The Sun

As Sports Ambassadors for Ladival’s summer #LoveSPF campaign it was essential that we tested out products from their range. Sun protection to me is vital, having had a skin cancer scare in my late teens it made me realise that slapping on the sun screen is vital. I am that…
