Hello & thanks for dropping by. If you’re an adventurer (wanabee, newbee, part time, full time, been there done that and got a tale to tell) then you’re in the right place! Even more so if you are looking for someone to share the adventure inspiration, plotting, fun & excitement!

Adventures - the beginning is just a dream

Adventures are often associated with the outdoors, travel & physical challenge and those ones are truly awesome! But I’m expanding the definition a little to includes the other “adventures” I’m on at the moment; career change, country change (hello Sydney :-)), and a self-build adventure (that’s right we are going to build a house!).   If it makes you feel equally excited & nervous, has more highs and lows then a roller coaster and you often wonder what on earth you are thinking then that sounds like an adventure to me!

Daydreaming Adventure will (hopefully*) give you;

  • a push in the right direction,
  • an adventure resource (if I don’t know know the answer I will find someone who does)
  • inspiration,
  • ideas &
  • like-minded adventurers to get plotting new adventures with…

….. so please hang around and see what its all about!

*Hopefully? What?! Well I’m pretty new at this so I need your help to make sure I achieve these lofty aims! That’s right, I need you to help keep my adventure in tact. Because adventures can be taken solo or with friends or with soon to be friends but sometimes we all need a little inspiration and help to pull them off.

September 2014: Daydreaming Adventure was born!

Daydreaming Adventure came about through a birthday challenge! Whilst away with friends for a yurt weekend for my 29th birthday I was panicking about the next years big birthday and not having achieved enough in my life to be 30. My friend Ben suggested I sail around the world; I laughed! But somewhat surprisingly from January to July 2014 I found myself sailing from Australia to London as part of the Clipper Round the World Race! The mere suggestion by Ben saw me taking on this big adventure that I wouldn’t have even contemplated if it weren’t for him. I tried it out with a couple of friends; and it worked! And so the Birthday Challenge was born!

When I set up Daydreaming Adventure I was in Basel, Switzerland, too close to the end of 9 months of extremely happy travel time that had included sailing across oceans with Clipper (my first birthday challenge!), walking the Tour de Mont Blanc and exploring then exploring some more! I didn’t want to return to life as I knew it and was dreaming of my next adventure.

My aim for Daydreaming Adventure was, & still is, to inspire and encourage others to take on their own adventures. whilst making sure I kept a healthy dose of adventure in my own life.

My recent adventures

I don’t consider myself an adventurer, putting myself somewhere between the wanabee & newbee category and I’m definitely only a part-timer. But I have pulled off a few adventures that have made me smile and am keen to make adventure a bigger part of my life. And it seems to be working: In 2015 I managed to get a few more adventures in; (almost) rowing around the Isle of Wight, the 3 Peaks Challenge, a week in Ruby the Campervan in the Lake District, and some lovely walking and cycling in the Chilterns. I however didn’t manage my goal of cycling the Chiltern Cycleway or get anywhere near enough camping in, there’s always room for improvement!

Sailing into Sydney

2016 also got off to a good start, arriving in Sydney just in time to see the new year then flying to Hobart to deliver a Clipper boat back to Sydney.  I now feel privileged to have some awesome new playgrounds on my doorstep; Centennial Park, the coast, Sydney Harbour & of course the sights of Sydney itself.

I need to complete a Birthday Challenge by October and am hoping to drag a few friends along with me so who knows what other adventures may pop up!

A few of my favourite things: camping, friends, sunshine, tea & cake for breakfast!

Beyond adventures I’m not a big fan of talking about myself (kind of tricky on an about me page!) but I do love a list so instead I’ve written a list of things I love*!

In no particular order.. avocadoes, flip flops, sunshine, Fridays, people watching, lattes, icecream in a mug, smiling, walking, camping, hammocks, dogs, the sea, singing even though I can’t sing, mountains, campfires, travel & hollibobs, naps, mojitos, walks along the coast, friends, swimming outdoors … and of course adventures!

*Disclaimer this is in no way a complete list!

PS. writing a “things I love list” is a really great way to cheer yourself up if your feeling a bit down!

If you want to know even more about me then you had better get in touch!

Still Here? Awesome!

Alternatively you could just say hello! I look forward to hearing about, or helping you to plot some awesome adventures soon!
