This month we consider the other perspective.
We interview the man who decided to live as a badger in the English countryside to see how it felt to be a worm-eating beast and we talk to Ray Mears about the enduring appeal of bushcraft in these tech-dominated times. We speak to the friends who decided to run the length of the river Wisla in Poland, as an alternative way to see the country and get super-fit at the same time.
We shun most popular area of South Africa in favour of finding adventure in the “Other Cape”. We surf in south Wales enjoying the kind of empty waves visitors to Devon and Cornwall could only dream of. We go mountain biking in Umbria and see a hardcore side to this Italian region, crushing its stereotype as an upper middle class holiday haunt. And take an unlikely extreme break in Madeira amid hordes of OAP wine tasters.
We ride the Squirrel Trail in the Isle of Wight with young kids and remind bike-lovers with babies that their love of cycling can continue when they have children. They will come out the other side.
And finally, we head to Lapland to ask locals how it feels to live in a place where you have to act like you’re having a very merry Christmas every single day of the year.
These stories and more will be dropping throughout November.
