Microadventure Inspiration

A microadventure is an adventure that is short, simple, local, cheap – yet still fun, exciting, challenging, refreshing and rewarding.

As the world’s population becomes increasingly urbanised, busy, and stuck in front of a screen, microadventures offer a realistic escape to wilderness, simplicity and the great outdoors, without the need to ski to the South Pole or go live in a cabin in Patagonia.

The appeal of microadventures is that they make adventure accessible to people who may have very little outdoor experience.

I hope that this page will answer most of the common questions I get asked from people looking to go on their first microadventure. If you have any other suggestions for tips I should add to this page, please let me know.

These posts should be all you need to get off the sofa, out the front door, and up a hill for the night…

And, of course, I’d be delighted if you buy the Microadventures book.

Tools of Titans I’ve followed Tim Ferriss’ musings on self-improvement, ‘lifestyle design’, and getting shit done for years. Tim’s podcast has interviewed a staggering range of successful people (including the decidedly wonderful Derek Sivers and Seth Godin who taught me masses about building an online audience) and […]
Spielberg A few years ago I used to watch a lot of films, particularly documentaries, and jot down notes for my blog (like Jiro, Sugarman, Man on Wire, and Anvil ). The death of Lovefilm led to me stopping, unfortunately. So […]

Committing to Providence, Creating Your Life  OK, so it’s a bit weird to post a blog post about yourself, especially one filled with so many kind things said about me. But if we leave that aside, I think this is a really interesting article about allowing […]
