3. Rucksack Magazine
I appreciate that this magazine has been around for a short while but it was this week that I "discovered" it. Here is a high quality "online journal and printed bi-annual magazine" which portrays the wild, and adventures, in a most stylish fashion. There are some amazing photos with a sort of haunting quality, even when looking at small details, that is reminiscent of the paintings of Daniel Crawshaw. I assume this I a policy of theirs... and I love it.
Check out rucksack Magazine here.
4. Feel Part of a Community with Twitter Chats
Occasionally I take part in a Twitter Chat; a conversation, usually based around a hashtag that takes place on Twitter at an hour appointed by the organiser. Anyone can organise it, anyone can take part. It is quite a nice way to chat with those who share a similar interest, for example I might do one for outdoor or travel bloggers, when I can. It is a nice way to learn a little and often just to talk shop - that favourite of British pastimes.
Anyway, this week I came across this great little article by @VicAdvisor listing Twitter Chats for travel bloggers and it looks like it could be a very useful resource to enable people to "join the conversation" and feel they are part of a community.
5. Forays in Foraging
Having collected sloes a few days before and then frozen them on Sunday night we started the process of making sloe gin.
"That isn't amazing", I hear you say. Bah... you're probably right, but this is pretty good: Some more boozy foraging ideas from Ordnance Survey, courtesy of @CraftInvaders.
