25 / 52: Recharge


This weekend has been all about taking it easy and recharging after a couple of very intense weeks at work. Adam just returned from OutDoor in Friedrichshafen on Thursday, I drove from London back down to Poole on Friday. Today turned out to be sunny and warm so we went into town to go for a wander and sipped iced coffees at South Coast Roast. OutDoor must have been great with innovations including the new MSR WindBurner Group Stove System, Osprey's ultralight Levity backpacks and a range of other innovations that I can't wait to test and have a play with.

It was also very full on though so we decided to spend Saturday and Sunday relaxing at home, cooking and eating good food and sleeping in in the mornings.

Now, we're not too far away from our next holiday - a trip to Barcelona. Simultaneously, we are planning a short trip to the Lakes next weekend (more about that soon) and possibly a bigger adventure in the Dolomites in September. More about that when we've actually finalised plans. For now, and while we keep recharging, here are a few fun reads for you:
