Adventure is not always hiding somewhere in the middle of a desert or floating out in the deep salty waters of the Atlantic, it can just as easily be found in an loft conversion in Chalk Farm or in a forest in the middle of zone 6.
That is why I decided this blog does not need to be just about the far away travels, which, let’s face it, I can only afford once in a while, and don’t have enough time off work for anyway!

This blog has taken many shapes already in the short time it has existed, but increasingly it is gravitating towards climbing-related topics, as I am a little obsessed with the sport.
I’ve spent most weekends this summer outdoors learning to climb on different types of rock and in different styles. So far, my climbing partner Valentina and I have covered North Wales, Sheffield, the Wye Valley, Southern sandstone and limestone in Frankenjura, and we also have a trip to Italy coming up, and climbing plans in warmer climes in the winter.
Recently, myself, Valentina and our friend Tamsin embarked on an ambitious project to create videos, vlogs and blogs about everything to do with climbing and our lifestyle as we learn and develop our new skills.
The project goes under the name Vertical Souls. We have a Facebook page and a YouTube channel, and this blog will act as the written outlet for our thoughts and experiences.
Please follow us, like our Facebook page, and give us all the support you can! We are very committed to making this project work long term.
Thank you, and happy adventuring 🙂
