  • Norfolk. It’s quite nice #morningstroll
  • A year ago I set off to trek across part of the Empty Quarter Desert in Oman. It was a mix of silent beauty, extreme environment and hilarity. My book about the journey is out in less than a fortnight and Now, the team is editing hard to deliver an amazing documentary. Coming very soon! #exploration #adventure #expedition #emptyquarter #desert #oman #arabianjourney image by @simonbuxton
  • Tweed season has begun. Arabia, my latest book is published on 1st November. I’ll be launching at @stanfordstravel book store in Covent Garden at 5pm- get your ticket if there’s any left. See you there @hodderbooks #arabianjourney #tweedtime
  • “For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilisation, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints.”
Robert Louis Stevenson. Come listen to my tales of adventure in my upcoming nationwide theatre show ‘Journeys through the badlands and beyond’ starting on 28th October in Sheffield. Tickets available on ticketmaster or local box offices. Link in bio.

  • Working the seasons builds a rhythm and connection with the mountains. For me, autumn is a time of renewal and reflection; on the slow changing landscape, shifting colours and timelessness of it all... some stolen wildness returns, lifting the spirit and encouraging it to soar free.

  • Autumnal wanderings... “...love pursued with fervour is one of the roads to knowledge.” #nanshepherd #mountainwanderer #autumnintheair #footstepsinthesnow #escapetothehills #goouttogoin #wheneveryonehasgonehome #whereisyourparadise #rejuvenation #mountainsoul #nobadviews #thisismyforever #alifetolive #firstsnows
  • Autumnal colours in the afternoon sun make for a sweet reintroduction to the granite... in between catching up and putting the world to rights @stuart_macdonald_guide finds the flow on a Fine Line.

  • Difficult to fall out of love with a place with trails and mornings and views like this... starting by headtorch from a dark, still valley; the sun catching the aiguilles rouges and lighting them like slow burning candles... cruising along beneath familiar peaks and just enjoying the sense of being alive.
“Isn’t it wonderful to be alive? You know, you can forget all about it. Then suddenly you remember, and think of all the things you can do. Here I am. I can walk around. I can talk. I can see things and remember things. I’m alive. How wonderful.” #sofialoren #gratitude #howwonderful #whatwecando #happiness #chamonixisalwaysagoodidea #trailrunning #alwaysalark #upearly #mindandbody #fitandstrong #makethemostofit #autumnroutine #autumnal #justbeing #alive #thewonderoflife
