A Microadventure

A Microadventure

Earlier this summer I heard about the idea of Microadventures – mini adventures that inspire you to take a break from the busy-ness of life and get out and cycle/walk/run/hike/swim/explore somewhere new. Because really, why not?

As I am always a fan of new adventures, I found a fellow adventurous spirit (yes, that’s you Emma) and we set off on our own cycling-inspired microadventure. Despite threatening clouds (and frequent stops to repair Murray, my trusty cycle) we ventured from Belfast to the coast south of Comber, and set up ‘camp’ somewhere under the stars between the incoming tide and field of fresh looking leaks. It was beautiful, indeed.

So without further adieu, I present to you, our visual documentation* of the journey!

*In the spirit of adventure, I opted to experiment with motion instead of still photography. For the record, it’s harder than one might think to hold a camera steady while cycling and trying desperately not to crash…

As a designer and photographer, I love how inspiration can be found in so many place, how a bit of fresh air and 24 hours without a computer does wonders for the brain! Needless to say, I’m definitely addicted to the idea of microadventures; now I just need to find a bag that’s bigger on the inside to fit enough layers for warmth in the coming winter…

    I enjoyed this a lot. Think the girl in the hammock looked more comfy than the one on the ground (in the ace pyjamas!)
