During my 20’s I travelled for five years, visiting many beautiful countries, meeting many interesting people. I travelled for so long, hoping to rid myself of my wanderlust, but alas, I fear this only made it more ingrained.
Dan is a man of the mountains, it’s part of him. I suppose spending his Uni days in deep Wales does that to someone… soaring hills and large wooded expanses. We both love adventure. And long for it.
Nowadays, with two boys, a house, and job, we can’t just gather up our bags and head off to the great open road like we once did. Instead we plan and take micro-adventures close to home. Saying that, I would love to one day take the boys to India or South East Asia.
Instead, we enjoy being inspired by stories of expeditions. Recently, I discovered a beautiful magazine – Sidetracked – and immediately knew it was for us. Awesome photography coupled with great articles written by intrepid explorers, thrill seekers and adventures nuts. Volume 2 is a beaut! I particularly love the cover story, about the Tibetan nomads, of Chang Tang. I have always wanted to visit Tibet. And the herdsman in Mongolia – the photography!
Dan and I have devoured this magazine, it’s beauty & the adventure – it has inspired us to plan trips and to get out there more.
Get inspired – go buy volume 1 and 2 in their shop.
