South Straddie Micro Adventure

How hard could it be to circumnavigate one of the world’s largest sand islands? Hmm, so we may have underestimated the mighty sand island called Stradbroke. Our kayaks were packed pre-dawn and we were on the water at sunrise. The water was like glass and we meandered (also known as “taking the long way”) through shallow …

Kangaroo Point Cliff Climbing

Having fun at KP! Getting ready for Iceland’s biggest and baddest volcanoes and icebergs! This means we are training up at Kangaroo Point cliffs.

Who wants to join next time?

Please excuse my Scottish Bum! I recently came back from the wilds of the Beautiful Scottish Highlands and while I was there I threw in a quick Micro Adventure and climbed the mighty Ben Nevis – The UK’s Highest Mountain (or hill depending on who you talk too) I might have even had a quick dip in a very cold Loch on the way down. The movie trailer will tell all.

But funny as buggery. What works REALLY WELL is pencil shavings using a pencil sharpener, handy and easy to carry.
