My little boy has invaded my shed as I attempt to work. He was sat on the floor playing his iPad on full volume but now he’s looking at my ‘stuff’ on the walls.
“Can we swap Lego R2D2’s?” He asks.
“No” I say.
“Why” He asks.
“Because yours is all scratched and battered and mine is looked after.”
Good question. Makes me think. I feel like the dad in the lego movie. Not playing with play things.

I didn’t want to like Alastair’s book ‘Microadventures’. Purely for selfish reasons. The moment I saw it I was jealous and wished I’d written it. I’m a huge fan of adventure in all shapes and sizes and spent many years throwing myself into them.
Now-a-days it’s all about grabbing those micro-moments. Making the most of a couple of days precious free time and feeling alive, invigorated and refreshed by nature or just getting some use out of equipment you bought online after a bottle of wine and a reminiscing conversation.
The last few years has seen the Micro-Adventure movement really take off. From camping in the garden to hitchhiking a coastal route. The online conversations I have seen have been championed and curated by Alastair Humphreys. His passion, enthusiasm and attention to detail has been the rallying cry as he has curated and connected, documented and shared.
This collected knowledge, this antidote to modern life has been wonderfully refined and condensed into an amazing book packed with great stories and stunning images. A catalyst for simply getting out and discovering yourself. Heading out in a new direction with a small bag containing all you need to explore, eat and sleep under the stars.
Microadventures is about nurturing imagination and attitude over saving for a plane ticket to a far off land. Buy this book and you will never be able to make the excuse of not having time for adventure.
A wonderful book, so well produced, well laid out and utterly inspiring from cover to cover.
