Even the most domestic of tasks can turn into an adventure when you live high in Morocco's Atlas Mountains in the heart of an Amazigh (Berber) family

Kitten rescue Moroccan style

I didn't wake up this morning with kitten rescue Moroccan style in mind, in fact I was hoping to go hiking. But what makes God laugh? People who plan.

Your Rohans or your life!

August 6, 2018

Sometimes you have to take tough decisions. You have to sacrifice something you love for the greater good. I found myself facing just that conundrum atop a high peak in the mighty Atlas Mountains. My Rohan Explorers are dear to my heart but it was a life or death situation.

You know that moment when you realise you have been a disgrace to your gender? That moment when you have let down women all over the world? That moment when you have reinforced every misogynistic stereotype? Yes, this was one of those moments when I was an embarrassment to the sisterhood.... in a big way!

Guelmim desert

How to be brave

April 2, 2018

Hiking in the desert mountains can be quite a challenge. I didn't set out to scare myself when I set out from Tighmert near Guelmim to walk the ridge, but I managed it nonetheless and in doing so learnt some lessons about how to be brave.

An adventurer needs adventures, so with that in mind, I packed up the cats, my bike and my hiking and running kit and moved to a tiny oasis in the south of Morocco called Tighmert for a couple of months. I want to see what living in an oasis is like, explore the desert area and mountains around Guelmim and get to know the Sahara people. My first adventure was a hike from the oasis, across the desert plain to the mountains.

An adventure run to Essaouira

February 13, 2018

16km of pristine, virgin Atlantic beach stretching out ahead of us as we started our adventure run from Moulay Bouzektoun back to Essaouira on Morocco's coast. Winter sun beating down and lots of golden sand to cross.
