Irene and Steve, Nearly Wild Exploration founders are off the the Kendal mountain festival (listed here) today. More time indoors but we have found it is a great event for inspiration, networking and just having some time out to enjoy other people's exploits. As well as the expected adrenaline filled crazy stunt films, there are a lot of films which consider how we engage with the natural world, covering expeditions into amazing places and give ideas for more extreme natural exploration. There are also art and writing events as well as numerous stands, mini talks, events and other things to inspire. Well worth a visit if you are looking for inspiration of fancy some armchair adventure!
