7 simple steps to a microadventure
1 KEEP IT SIMPLE Don’t over plan your microadventure so much that it becomes overwhelming – you won’t do it. Just get out there and try it!
2 SHARE THE JOY (SOMETIMES) Head off with willing friends, by all means, but wild camping on your own can also be really liberating, and an extra-special experience.
3 RESPECT THE PLANET Make sure you know the law around wild camping. Aim to set up camp late and depart early, and never leave a trace.
4 COMFORT COMFORT IS KEY Invest in good-quality kit – being warm and comfortable will mak make a huge difference to your ov overall enjoyment of the experienc experience.
5 PACK LIGHT Don’t pack too much as it will feel burdensome. It’s only one night – you don’t need much. A beanie beanie, down jacket and head torch are my kit-list must-haves.
6 CAPTURE THE MOMENT Take plenty of pictures and share them on social media, to entice friends to o join you next time. Photos will also lift your spirits once you’re back at your desk.
7 RELAX AND ENJOY IT Log out of everyday life, switch off your phone, and listen to the sounds of nature.
