Hello New Reader!
Firstly, congratulations on arriving at this website - whether accidentally stumbling across it or being recommended by a friend. I've been posting here regularly since 2015 and there are hundreds of posts and adventure related articles. That's a whole lot of reading and it would be rude to send you off into the wilderness without providing a map. Consider this page as your map.
1. Choose your Pathway
The easiest way to to get around is to work out which flavour of reader you are. Once you're decided that, you can start off on a pathway through the site - and no doubt take a related post tangent at some point. But that's good. That's exploring. Here are a few ideas of where you might like to start.
⛰️ I want to Live Adventurously
🚴♀️ I want to go on a Big Adventure
Depending on where you are on the Crazy Dream to Actually Happening scale, there's lots here to help out. Have a look at Big Adventures for some of the things I've done. The Practical Advice section can help with the nuts and bolts of specific expeditions.
🤠 I want to Mix Adventure with Making a Living
So you want to be Indiana Jones, huh? (Actually, you can learn a lot from him!) Check out some Interviews I've done with people who combine adventure and a career. Also 3 Business Models for Adventurers is definitely worth a read.
📚 Actually, I'm hear about your writing
Hello fellow wordsmith :) I'm a little bit obsessed with writing and storytelling, so although this blog is mostly about adventure, I can't help but write about the craft sometimes too. The Writing category has got the whole lot.
Prefer to listen over reading?
I've got a podcast just for you. This is not a traditional podcast. Think of it as more like the audiobook version of my blog! Or you can check out my YouTube channel - featuring useful how-to guides and adventure movies. Subscribe for new content as it comes.
2. Add Adventure to your Social
Okay, if you're here I'm guessing you're probably already following a bunch of cool adventurers on social media. But you might like to add me to that crew! I'm @travellinglines on Facebook and Instagram - just @travellingline on Twitter (because tweets are short, right?).
This is the best way to get my latest adventure announcements and take part in some challenges with me.
3. Read About My Adventures
You'll find a whole host of stories on this website about my adventures. If you'd like a overview of what I've done and where I'm going, check out this page. I keep it up to date with all my adventures - big and small, past and future, success and catastrophe... Each page comes with a list of related blog posts, so you can read through the whole adventure - from planning to completion.
If that's not enough, I'd check out Intrepid Magazine (I set it up). This magazine is dedicated to becoming the go-to place for women in adventure. There's a print and digital subscription, plus free to read articles on the blog. Eat your heart out 😊
