Travel and Outdoor Education

I’m a passionate Traveller and Outdoor Educator.

I’ve worked in and out of the Outdoor Education industry since 1989. I’ve seen many changes over the years where young people are less resilient, parents are more risk averse and the general fitness levels of everyone has decreased.

More than ever Outdoor Education is important therefore, I write posts on my experiences and adventures that hopefully will enlighten others to the benefits of spending time in nature and for some, stepping outside their comfort zone.

Travel – say no more. The statistics show that travelling whether it’s to your local park, the next suburb, the beach, the mountains, the next state or overseas has major benefits to people and I’ve seen that first hand with my own children who were born in 1998, 2000 and 2002.

Here are some articles that you might find interesting and I appreciate comments and feedback.
