TopDeck Turkey Diary Day 8 | Fethiye and Home

A continuation of my TopDeck Turkey diary. If you haven’t read the first post in the series yet go and start here.   My TopDeck Tour of Turkey was officially over at breakfast time (sad face), but I had one more full day to spend in Fethiye before starting my (very long) journey back home.

Review: ActiviTea Portable Tea Infuser

Want to take a nice cup of tea out and about with you but don’t like the taste of tea from a flask? This interesting new product from Adagio Teas might work for you – the glass body and removable infuser means the tea tastes exactly how you want it, and there is no need

Review: Keela Belay Pro Jacket

It’s finally cold enough to write this blog post! (I say “finally” because I like proper seasons – none of this changeable stuff – bring on the winter!) I’ve had this jacket for ages but it’s so warm I’ve not wanted to wear it much. In the last few weeks, though, it has definitely proved its worth

Review: Lifedge “Ultimate Cable”

Lifedge, the company who made the absolutely awesome waterproof iPhone case, are back, and this time with an accessory that anyone who wants to keep their phone charged when out and about in potentially wet circumstances – a rugged lightning cable, or rather the “ultimate” cable!  Why might you want a rugged cable I hear you

Three Days Without Chewing. My NOSH Detox Experience.

I was recently contacted by NOSH who had seen my various ramblings about food and bloating and energy levels and other things. They offered me the opportunity to try their three day beginner’s fast. They thought their juice detox would be the ideal way for me to stop, take a break, and give my eating

Walking in Sandals. Review: Merrell All Out Blaze Sieve

As part of the Outdoor Bloggers Weekend earlier this summer, each of the bloggers who attended were gifted a pair of Merrell’s new All Out Blaze Sieve walking sandals to test. It was lovely to have the support of Merrell for our inaugural event, and as one of the organisers I was pleased that I was

Review: Merrell Chameleon Shift Mid Boots

I love to hike. I also love to try out new hiking kit. I’ve had these new Merrell Chameleon Shift Mid Gore-Tex boots since they came out earlier in the summer, and have already had some fantastic adventures with them on my feet. These boots were given to me by Merrell as my Lyke Wake

Review: Flight001 Spacepak from Bear & Bear

Despite loving travel and touring, and having no problem living out of a bag for a few days at a time, I find packing incredibly stressful. That stress is multiplied when I’m packing to go off on my motorbike for a few days. With very limited space, how am I supposed to choose what to

The View from the Shard

Having seen New York from the Empire State Building and Top of the Rock (both stunning and well worth doing if you’re ever in the Big Apple), I have been very keen to see what London looks like from one of its newest tourist attractions, the View from the Shard. Designed by Master Architect Renzo

Review: Regatta Halin Point 214 Two Man Tent

When Outdoor Camping Direct offered to send me a tent to try out at the recent Outdoor Bloggers weekend, I could have gone for a massive tent that would pump up with an air compressor, be tall enough to stand up in, be suitable to cook inside, take a double air-bed and have space for all my

Review: Microsoft Lumia 830

Billed as a good value smartphone with all the trimmings you’d expect from the more expensive models, the Lumia 830 looks like any other Nokia – sorry, Microsoft – phone on the market. Its five-inch display is set in a chunky metal case with colourful plastic back, with a now-familiar grid pattern that can be
