Bedrock Sandals Review – Classics vs Cairn Pro’s

In this review I’m going to be comparing two models of Bedrock Sandals, The Classics and The Cairn Pro’s. I’m a big proponent of the “barefoot movement” and try to spend as much time as possible without anything on my feet. This often isn’t practical so I’ve tried a lot of different barefoot style shoes.

Scuba Diving the Great Barrier Reef in 2018

I’ve been Scuba diving for about eight years and have been fortunate to dive some amazing places.

The Wonders of Iceland

Maxpedition Fatboy GTG – Small Shoulder Bag Review

I’ve been using some form of the Maxpedition Fatboy for over five years. I picked up my first one in 2010 just before heading off on a trip through Mexico, Cuba and Central America.

Hiking the Annapurna Circuit

After a long and arduous journey from Tokyo we arrived in Kathmandu, colourful, crazy, congested Kathmandu. After the clean streets and iced coffees of Tokyo, Kathmandu came as a shock. Our taxi ride from the airport to the tourist area of Thamel gave us a taste of what was to come. Crazy driving and traffic, […]
