Ideas and Inspiration

First of all, have a look at my Bucket List. This is not a do-before-I-die list, but rather a collection of cool adventure ideas I might do one day. Or you might do one day! I spend a lot of time stumbling across exciting adventure ideas for my job – maybe some of them will inspire you.


Obviously, I have to start by recommending my own books. Now for life-changing business/finance and lifestyle stuff, I would recommend 4 Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss and I Will Teach You to be Rich by Ramit Sethi. If you can look past the ostentatious names, they’re both worth their weight in gold.

For guidebooks, I often use Cicerone – the destination specific pre-amble is often worth more than the routes themselves. If you’re in need of maps quickly then Dash4it is great. Stanfords often has the unusual maps of far flung places that no one else keeps. I’d also highly recommend Scotland’s Winter Mountains with One Axe for people trying to get Winter ML QMDS. It’s a beautiful and well written book.
