17 Things Only An Adventuress Would Understand

 In the past few years us gals have been increasingly drawn to the mastery of many outdoor activities. On land, sea and in the sky we are making it known that girls love adventure too! Where once it was 'unladylike' to see a woman kicking some ass outdoors, we are now seeing a changing of the guard. That's right, adventurous pursuits are no longer a male domain, us femmes are not turned off by the ever increasing thrills and spills of outdoor adventures, we are turning up in droves as we too want to be tested by nature and its challenges. 

All that being said, we like to do adventure a little different to the fellas, so here's my list of  Things Only A Female Adventuress Would Understand.

1. Your family always called you a Tomboy, because you'd rather play with boys building tree houses than play with any dolls.

2. Your idea of 'going for a walk' is totally different to your work colleagues and the majority of people you know.

4. Necessities in your overnight bag include toenail clippers, nurofen, deodorant , aeroguard and a variety of head bands and caps. (Hair brushes usually take up way too much space).

  • Your favourite stories are written throughout the pages of your passport

  • Truly all you need is  20 seconds of courage.

And your priority on that long stretch of road..... is to prevent blisters at all costs! Ouch!

14. There's nothing like a hot coffee on a freezing cold morning to warm your hands.

 15. Food always tastes better cooked over an open fire.
