For my logo draft project I decided to capture the environment that I love and have spent countless hours in which is the mountains. This design also goes along with my theme and topic which is action sports from my perspective. I looked over many different action sports/outdoor logos to try and draw some inspiration […]

voyager's experiences

Big surprises come in small packages and it is totally true when it comes to Fagu – the most serene of all hill station of Shimla. A quaint little town located in the heart of Himachal Pradesh and not so far from Shimla, the refreshing green fields with the Himalayas in the background, will offer perfect peace […]

Life sometimes gives you the opportunity to make a difference. A recent trip to Nepal provided me and some friends with opportunities for adventures and helping people.

The Sun
IT will be BBQ weather for many today as Britain basks in exceptionally warm 19C temperatures – triple the average for this time of year – but more snow is still on the horizon. Sunny spells in the south and east of England will set the mercury rising most here – with even modest forecasts putting highs at around at least 15C-16C. Temperatures will be in the balmy mid-to-high teens across the country today, with this weather map showing the conditions at 3pm on Saturday The south and east will see the best of the warm and sunny weather – while it is a rainier picture in the north and west. This map shows the scene at 3pm This will make it hotter than holiday hotspots like 10C Corfu, Greece and 16C Alexandria, Egypt. The peak temperature is around three-times the average temperatures of 6-7C in February. It will still be warm in other parts of the UK, with temperatures in the lower double-figure range. But it may not be sun-bathing weather in the north and west – where thick cloud and rain will sweep in early on Saturday. The Met Office said: “Morning fog will slowly clear to leave bright day with sunny spells. “However, a band of cloud and rain will move across Northern Ireland and western Scotland, reaching the far west of England and Wales by the afternoon.

The Met Office forecasts a sunny, warm weekend with temperatures staying around the 16-17C mark climbing to the “high teens” by mid-week. Monday is due to beat the 16.6C February 25 record, with Met Office records stretching back to 1841. February’s temperature record is 19.7C, set on February 13, 1998, at Greenwich, London.

Scotland’s warm weather already broke records this week with temperatures in Aboyne reaching 18.3C – overtaking the previous 17.9C high set in Aberdeen in 1897. The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “It will be warm enough for some to break out the BBQs this weekend, with incredible winter temperatures and sunshine. “Highs could challenge the 19.7C record in coming days.” [web_component id=”web-component-weather” url=”https://www.thesun.co.uk/components_static/weather/weather.c7783189.js” src=”https%3A%2F%2Fiframe.thesun.co.uk%2Fcomponents_static%2Fdata%2Fiframe-sc.html%3Fid%3Dweb-component-weather%26script%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.thesun.co.uk%252Fcomponents_static%252Fweather%252Fweather.c7783189.js”] Bookmaker Coral cut the odds on 20C or higher being recorded in the UK this weekend into 5-4 (from 5-2) as temperatures continue to rise across the nation.

As each new stage revealed itself I considered turning back. With a comrade we would have talked through the options and continued on our way. Alone I felt with each stage I was getting deeper in and further off the beaten track. No mobile reception. The sat phone was a last resort at the bottom […]

Abby in Asia

After about three weeks of travel during my winter break, coming back to Taiwan felt like crossing the finish line of a long but incredibly fun race. I was giddy with excitement to hear the words “welcome to Taiwan” again; my eyes welling up just a little with the happiest of tears. I honestly had […]

Damage Mold

Mold flourishes in damp and warm places. When air humidity is high and your home is warm, mold growth is likely to happen both indoors and outdoors. So what happens during winter when the air is dry and it gets freezing cold? Does mold die in the winter or in cold? It would make sense […]

However, last night camping outside it was cold, windy and super brutal and we didn’t think we would make it until Saturday morning. We decided around 8am to break down, […]

Anyone Can Run an Ultra (and other lies I tell myself)

Another Friday and it’s time for my 150th TWIR. How is that possible? That is close to three years of TWIRs under the belt. Each time I contemplate that, I am reminded that this started as a way of tracking my (ultimately short-lived) ultra marathon training. My how things have changed. Enough reminiscing, let’s get […]

The rumours were rife prior to Christmas that Vail Resorts was purchasing both Hotham and Falls Creek in Australia. However no official word was made by either party by the end of the year and those same rumours began to fade in the new year. We can now confirm today that the worst kept secret in Australian ski […]

We bought a place this time last year and didn't realize the condition of the garage was so poor. On the south side, there's water and soil running in when it rains. On the north side, water leaks in through the personnel door and even under the bottom plate of the wall. Unsure if there's […]
