On the map, the road from Gangtok to Lachen looks pretty straight forward. I mean literally, it looks like a straight north west jobby with a few little turns. But we soon learnt this was far from true. This next stage of our journey was a drive into the north of Sikki...

It surprised me just how perfectly my homemade chairpack slotted into an Exodus Travels kit bag. With a few clothes and emergency waterproofs tucked round the sides it managed to survive the journey to India, without so much as a screw coming loose. Amazing really as i...

On Wednesday 15th November, I grabbed my many bags, and did the final long walk to work…only joking I obviously got a taxi! I knew there would be an awful lot more walking to come in the next few weeks.

Joined by Emily Almond-Barr, the amazing cinematographer who would...

There are only 4 days until we leave for India and there is still SO much to do!

As my friends have probably noticed, I am extremely stressed as there are so many last minute changes and things that could potentially go wrong on this big adventure.

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!

Thanks so much for letting me use it guys, sums her up perfectly :)

Somewhere along the way, during the final six month stretch of her 14 year journey, Alexandra David-Néel came across a fur hat in a patch of woodland. Much to the dismay of Yogden her adopted Lama son, she decided to pick it up.

Yogden was wary of the furry thing,...
