Hey folks, I’m Kate!

My mission: To live an adventurous and authentic life. To impact the environment minimally wherever possible, through choosing an ethical diet and mindful lifestyle and finally, to inspire others along the way!

I’m a 30 year old British gal who was first bitten by the travel bug back in 2011. Since then, I have interrailed around Europe, fallen in love with Asia, lived remotely Down Under for the best part of two years and most recently, road tripped around Iceland in some less than desirable weather conditions!

Having always been a keen writer, I set up my blog back in 2015, as a means of keeping in touch with friends and family whilst I lived in Australia. However, it was soon apparent that a wider audience was interested in my shenanigans, tips and itineraries!

It was in Tasmania that I first discovered my affinity with the great outdoors, hiking 1/3 of the statesย 60 Great Short Walks in just a few months, including theย Three Capes Track.

This has inevitably lead me to my next BIG plan; toย thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2019!

        I think next time will be in Lake District as I am moving soon to live in Cumbria. I will miss Peak District.

    Hi, Kate. Thanks for sharing your adventures via your blog. I’ve also enjoyed your lovely pictures on FB. It’s wonderful to see a young woman like you taking advantage of the beautiful places our planet has to offer. I’ll be hitting the AT on March 17th to fulfill a dream I’ve had since university (before you were born, btw!) In two years I hope to do some backpacking in the UK. Best of luck on your through hike and I hope to see you on the trail.
