Rob was the editor of Adventure Travel magazine between 2016-2019 and is now a freelance contributor. Many weekends spent exploring the mountains and glacial valleys of the Brecon Beacons as a teenager fuelled an insatiable lust for adventure early on in his life, and ever since he has travelled the world in search of new places to explore.
Growing up, I was the only girl at Scouts – finding thrills in the camping, rock climbing and night hikes that were rarely offered at Girl Guides. Since then I've continued to seek adventure wherever I can, from volcano boarding in a remote corner of Nicaragua to spending seven months in the French Alps attempting to perfect those parallel turns.
I started working with Adventure Travel in 2007 at which point I could be found skiing in Canada, biking and paragliding in France and white water rafting and quad biking in the Caribbean. However, after two stints on maternity in 2014 and 2016, the adventurous side has slowed down a little. I currently work Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays in the office and am just as busy being a mum on the other days!
As a mother of three, my biggest adventures are about getting outdoors with the kids on the weekend, going for walks in the countryside and exploring the best that Warwickshire has to offer. Having graduated from the University of London many years ago, I joined Adventurize Media in 2011 and the rest, as they say, is history.
I’ve worked for Adventurize Media for nine years now, though I took a hiatus in 2011 to ski guide in Meribel. I’ve always chased adventure and I climbed the Eiger when I was 15, and Mont Blanc the year after. Having seen glimpses of the beauty that this planet has to offer, I've made it my mission to explore and experience as much of it as possible.
