This Is My Way: Olivia's Story

Olivia Wood is a lover of all things outdoor, an all-action, one-woman enthusiast. She hikes, bikes, mountaineers, camps and climbs. At the root of her enthusiasm is the wish to inspire others, particularly her five-year-old daughter and her converted partner, who both accompany her on her adventures. She wants to reject the idea that a 9-5 is everything, to pass on her passion for the landscape and the adventure to be found in the British outdoors.

Neil used to be a bookworm, an "indoor" type if ever there was one. After finishing a PhD he writes short stories about spooky places and odd people. Living in Switzerland, the Canadian Rockies and the north east region of the USA convinced him that there was something to be said for this whole outdoor thing. Now he runs everywhere he can, competing in races most weekends and endlessly planning the next great adventure to some far flung part of the world. Recent trips include Costa Rica, where he tried and failed to surf; Vietnam, where he almost got stuck in an underground tunnel; and back to Canada, where he came face-to-face with a bear. Watch this space for further updates on Neil's global bumblings and the occasional athletic success.
