Win a copy of The Girl Outdoors

I still can’t believe I wrote a book! Publishing The Girl Outdoors has been one of the best things ever to happen to me, mainly because of how wonderful it has been to share it with other lovers of the great outdoors. Writing it (all 30,000 words of it!) and seeing it come to life have been a good reminder of how amazing it is to get out and explore wild places, whether you fancy trying a new sport, travelling the world or just going camping for a weekend.

The Girl Outdoors: the wild girl’s guide to adventure, travel and wellbeing is a beginner-friendly bible for all women looking for information and inspiration to get out in the great outdoors, get fit, get healthy and have fun. It’s available on Amazon for £9.74.

If you have a copy, I hope you love it and that it inspires many adventures of all sizes for years to come. If you haven’t, this competition is for you! I have five signed copies to give away.
