Hiking for world mental health day

Healthy body, healthy mind

October 9, 2018

World Mental Health day reminds us all that we need to take care of our minds and souls as well as our bodies. So, here is my call to action.... get up, get out and have fun in the wonderful natural playground that was created for us.

Your Rohans or your life!

August 6, 2018

Sometimes you have to take tough decisions. You have to sacrifice something you love for the greater good. I found myself facing just that conundrum atop a high peak in the mighty Atlas Mountains. My Rohan Explorers are dear to my heart but it was a life or death situation.

How to be brave

April 2, 2018

Hiking in the desert mountains can be quite a challenge. I didn't set out to scare myself when I set out from Tighmert near Guelmim to walk the ridge, but I managed it nonetheless and in doing so learnt some lessons about how to be brave.

Planting a future in the Moroccan Mountains

March 25, 2016

I had gone up to the mountains to meet friends for a couple of days of hiking. Remote and wild, we had fantastic days out across canyons, up river beds and into secret valleys. Our host and guide, Ali, not only shared his knowledge and experience with us, he also invited us to help him plant a wood of almond trees. Leaving something for the future.

A mini adventure

April 23, 2015

Two days is long enough for a mini adventure. Especially when getting to the Atlas Mountains involves a battle with a bus driver, a hair raising ride up and a brakeless ride down a very twisty road, and a final safe haven in a tree house.

Three diets for fitness: paleo, vegan, calorie counting

April 4, 2015

I piled on the pounds towards the end of last year. Lack of a clear running, cycling or adventure goal for January, the delights of Christmas and a lack of will power all came together and helped me gain that extra fat. For the New Year, I decided to combine some research with a quest to lose weight. Three months - three diets that different nutritionists swear by - paleo, vegan and calorie counting. I thought that a month for each was a fair crack of the whip.

Fancy a cuppa?

February 17, 2015

I'm currently taking part in the Run Until You Drop challenge. You run the number of miles that correspond to that day in the month. Sounds easy. Well it is pretty tough going, and relentless, but, as always, there are moments that gladden your heart.
