Review quote

All about finding happiness outside and championing easy adventures that we can all try. Sian covers it all from how to travel solo to specific suggestions for active women's holidays, plus advice on how to forage and cook in the wild, travel in a campervan, create a shelter, rock climb and take the perfect outdoor photo. * Project Calm * Lewis is as enthusiastic about campfire cooking as cliff jumping and cross-country skiing, and will inspire you to do whatever you fancy ... [her] chatty, can-do attitude and her intolerance of posers of all stripes is refreshing. -- Stephanie Cross * BBC Countryfile *
