Craghoppers put to the test: The Inca Trail

After 10 years of dreaming of trekking the Inca Trail and seeing Machu Picchu, It had finally come around! Some friends and I decided to plan and allow our adolescent conversations become reality.

Walking Thought To Significantly Promote Weight Loss

A recently conducted study has shown that walking briskly for 30 minutes proves more fruitful in reducing weight than going to the gym for half an hour. The London School of Economics carried out the study in a bid to discover which method of exercise promotes the most weight loss.

Cycling Beyond Berlin

We live in the future. To prove this I only have to say three words: mosquito repellent clothing. My boyfriend, Tom, and I have just started our cycle tour around the world, and countries that are considered to be a high-risk malaria zone are on our itinerary.
