INTRODUCING THE GIRL OUTDOORS BOOK

I wrote a book! I’m so happy to show you The Girl Outdoors, out now on Amazon and in bookshops. It’s published by Bloomsbury Publishing UK and is available to order in paperback and digital forms.

The Girl Outdoors is a beginner-friendly bible for all women looking for information and inspiration to get out in the great outdoors, get fit, get healthy and have fun.

WHAT’S INSIDE: There are guides to getting active outdoors, from mountain biking to climbing, surfing, kayaking and more. Planning a wild adventure? You’ll find chapters on everything from wild camping and cycle touring to holding mini festivals and scrumptious campfire recipes. Then we’re off round the world with trip-planning advice, essential kit lists and tips on long-term backpacking and working abroad. Scattered throughout are ideas for global adventures, from swimming off Scottish islands to canoe camping in Canada.
