In this moment I realised that despite my fear & vulnerability, there was no where else on earth I would rather be, especially not indoors. I turned towards the trail and told myself to take just one step. Then another. Soon my hands were pumping my thighs, turning my legs into pistons that powered from my greater sense of purpose.
As women, our frustrations are many when it comes to purchasing clothing and gear to get outdoors. Here we list the common complaints and ask the question; How and what can we do so brands are aware and understand what our needs are when it comes to adventure and travel-related purchases?
Call Out! To all the hikers, explorers, adventurers of this wild and beautiful country! Join us this November as we support the Hike it Out Campaign and do our best to be more aware of minimising the impact we have on the places we visit.
It happens to all of us. Sometimes, we just fall into a rut and life feels flat, or worse, painful. We can start to wonder why things feel like they're harder than they should be. Here's a little reminder that by simply getting outside, you have the power to change your circumstances.
Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
Pope John XXIII
“The willingness to show up changes us, It makes us a little braver each time.”
There is no question that adventure offers the connection and ultimate thrill many of us constantly yearn for. But there is much more to adventure than the adrenaline rush, the opportunity for a new challenge or exploring new places. Along with adventure, comes a means of education, happiness, and inspiration. With every new adventure, we have the opportunity to learn something great about life.
Adventure can be many things. It can be taking on a new experience, regardless of the outcome. Or seeing the world from a different perspective, even if you’ve seen it a million times before. Maybe to you it's choosing to see the beauty in the extreme? Or do the ordinary differently? Me I'm drawn to explore. I find it strangely comforting when I'm alone with my a backpack on the other side of the world having to embrace whatever it is that may show up.
Indeed, this life is a test. It is a test of many things - of our convictions, our faith, our patience, our resilience, our ultimate desires and of course our priorities.

Heroes are never perfect, but they're brave, they're authentic, they're courageous, determined, discreet, and they've got grit.
It's not only moving that creates new starting points. Sometimes all it takes is a subtle shift in perspective, an opening of the mind, an intentional pause and reset, or a new route to start to see new options and new possibilities.

Ang Roan knows that the challenge of her solo cycle is nowhere near the challenge that people of the LGBTIQ community experience on a day-to-day basis, in terms of the struggle to be accepted by society and in some cases their peers and family.
When it comes to Mental Health, the outdoors can play a key role in healing. Despite setbacks Ebony Hoiberg still hopes to walk across Australia, but at the moment is taking her recovery step by step, just like she hikes trail.

They say getting to the start line is the hardest part. But this time, I didn’t even get that far. When the Rapha Women’s Prestige event was announced, it prompted a flurry of social media messages. “Who’s up for a girl’s weekend in the Hunter Valley?!” “Me!”
Nothing ruins a beautiful moment outdoors more than litter. The whole reason we go adventuring is to feel one with nature, to get back to our roots, get away from the city and experience a place that’s untouched. It's about feeling connected with Mother Nature, rather than imposed on by mankind. Aiming to bring back the beautiful moments, we introduce to you the Hike it Out Campaign.
“Oh no, I am eating something ‘bad’. I can’t believe I am doing this again." This thought process of a ‘mindless’ eater gets stuck in a loop, with additional layers of self-loathing added in with each repetition, while stripping away self-esteem at an equally damaging rate.
