The Canary Islands are nothing if not a varied holiday destination, at once offering the horizontal tranquility of golden beaches and the rugged beauty of Lanzarote’s stark, volcanic landscapes. Therefore it’s no surprise that an excursion in this diverse corner of the world requires an eclectic range of kit.  Luckily for you, in this post, our friends from the island of Lanzarote, Optima Villas, will be providing some practical tips on what to take when embarking on an excursion to the Canary Islands – leaving you fully prepared for all these incredible islands have in store.   Invest in hardy footwear First things first, let’s talk footwear. While flip-flops may be your go-to choice for relaxing poolside at your luxury Lanzarote villa or heading to the beach, you’ll need something a little more robust on your feet if you want to experience the Canaries’ true beauty off the beaten track. From craggy cliff faces and rugged lunar landscapes to sandy deserts and lush forests, one thing your walking shoes will need to be prepared for is a varied terrain. Flimsy plimsolls and sports trainers won’t cut the mustard if you’re planning to explore on foot, so be sure to pack...

“My golden retriever Ember and I love hanging out in our ENO DoubleNest. It’s big enough for both of us, but sometimes Ember doesn’t like to share! Can you blame her?! I try to take my ENO with me everywhere, because you never know when you’ll want to hangout and enjoy the scenery. Hammocks aren’t just for summertime activities and warm climates. Some of the best hammocking spots can be found and accessed in the winter, when bodies of water are frozen over! On this particular day, Ember and I went hiking and then spent a chill afternoon soaking up some much-needed sunshine and enjoying the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains and frozen sea ice that stacks up along the shoreline. I love the face that Ember is making at me in the photo. It’s almost like she’s saying, “Don’t even think about asking me to move over…” She won :)” Kyle Rudy: March 2016 Photo Contest Winner   Check out more of Ember’s adventures on Instagram @emberbristol Don’t leave it up to Kyle and Ember to have all the fun!

Winter HammockingThough it might seem far from a wonderland at times, with freezing temperatures and icy sidewalks, winter has a lot to offer the outdoor adventurer. For the adventurous spirit, cooler temps open up the door for skiing, snowboarding, and all kinds of winter treks. When there is snow, even a familiar neighborhood can become an exciting new world of sledding, snowball fights, and shenanigans! Any winter activity will require special some preparation. From keeping your head, hands, and feet comfortably warm, to making sure you don’t lose any toes to frostbite, the proper precautions can make a huge difference. Here are some ways to make sure you’re not caught off-guard before going into the great outdoors this winter: The items you pack will depend on your specific activity. For example, if you are running in the cold weather, you should dress in layers; you can take some off if you get warm, or put more on if you get too cold. In the winter, you should always have extra gloves, hats, sweaters, and socks in case you need to layer up or if your clothes get wet — especially if your plans involve snow. Certainly, the equipment you need depends...

Backpacking with dogsEveryone has their own preference when it comes to backpacking, some people love to go ultralight, some are more in it for comfort, and others want practical. For backpacking with a dog, being prepared without over packing is my main goal. Below, I have my list of items I consider essentials and would never leave the house without when backpacking with my dog Goose. 1.) Dog backpack I am aware not all dogs can carry a backpack either for size or age of the dog, but if your dog is healthy enough then I say take advantage of it! If you don’t know if your dog is ready for a backpack I recommend taking them to your vet and asking your vet to conduct a physical exam to determine if they are physically ready to wear a backpack. Ok so your dog can wear a backpack that’s great, just remember to not dive right into a backpack full of dog gear remember training is key to keep your dog happy and healthy. Start with short hikes and lightweight in the backpack and slowly increase the weight to the target weight. A maximum of 25 percent of your dog’s body weight is a rough estimate. But...
Growing up I ran the urban streets and tracks of St.Louis, Missouri, but eventually running became something I had to do and not something I wanted to do. I stopped running shortly after this. About a year later, I discovered trail running and rediscovered my love for running. When I first started trail running though, I was shocked with just how difficult and exhausting it was. I say this not to discourage but to make you aware that the first time you try this you may get discouraged too. Here are some trail running tips I wish I knew before I hit the trails. 1. Safety Making sure you are safe is one of the most important things you should do when trail running. A good rule of thumb is never trail run alone. Invite a friend or have your furry friend tag along. I do understand though that running with someone else isn’t always entirely possible. Just be sure to tell someone when and where you are going. You never know what may encounter on the trail and it’s always a good idea to have a safety backup. Be as prepared as possible. I compiled some questions to ask...
