I'm really pleased to announce that the charity I will be raising money for is Freedom Kit Bags!

Many girls and women from rural and low-income areas of Nepal don’t have access to disposable sanitary products, and even if they did the amount of rubbish pollution pr...

The last time I went to India I was only 16, which is around the same time I first read My Journey to Lhasa by Alexandra David-Néel. It was a hugely eye opening place to visit when you're that age,  especially if you've grown up in Colchester...

Most of it's a big blur,...

Check out this little video that History's Women Adventurers put together about Alexandra David-Néel, who they describe as the ULTIMATE ADVENTURER!

This is the book that directly inspired the whole Woman with Altitude project, My Journe...

I have to say, I've been learning an awful lot whilst organising this expedition to India, especially when it comes to the old kit I'll be taking with me.

I've had history lessons on many items including backpacks, hats, walking boots and probably the best of all,...

I met my wonderful friend Bryony on a beach in Sri Lanka. We were both there to learn how to surf, on a week long "intensive surf course". 

If you've never been surfing before, a warning for your first time - it's not as easy as it looks and you don't look any...

This famous image of Alexandra David-Néel below will be the inspiration behind everything I'll be wearing on my journey. The image was taken in 1923, before the final stages of her 14 year journey around Asia, when she dressed as an elderly beggar woman, and secretly e...
