Hi! We’re Andy & Georgina, two recent graduates in engineering related jobs. Travelling, climbing, running and cycling are a few of our favourite activities and we try to get out as much as we can, whether its local trails, a lengthy van drive or even an overnight flight.
We aim to share our passion of travelling on this page, giving you hints and tips with recommended gear for all types of adventure.
Andy has an outdoor background, previously working in outdoor shops spending every penny (and more) on gear for trips. 2015 was a busy year for Andy, working in a world championship winning Formula 1 team while training for a variety of cycling events including La Marmotte and the Amateur World Road Championships. Back in university for completion of his Masters of Engineering course in 2015/2016, cycling took a back seat but climbing picked up, cue Georgina.
Georgina is a physics graduate who spent her childhood spread across several different countries including South Africa and Bahrain. These experiences have influenced and shaped her love for travel, culture and adventure, and have only helped to further fuel her affinity for sports and being in the great outdoors. A former adventure racer, Georgina now concentrates her energy on rock climbing and more specifically, bouldering, outside of her career as an engineer.
