Live Your Adventure
Holidaysafe is extremely proud to insure Sophie Radcliffe (Aka blogger and all round inspiration Challenge Sophie) on her world wide adventures. She kindly wrote the guest blog below for us, explaining her ‘live your adventure’ philosophy.
When Holidaysafe approached me about working together, we put our heads together and thought about what it was we wanted to inspire in other people’s travels. We decided it was a sense of adventure, of trying something new that seems slightly outside of your comfort and can lead to new experiences.
When we try something new, we grow. We enrich our lives with new places, new people and new horizons.
Try Something New
This year has definitely been about trying new things for me. Whilst partnering with Holidaysafe I completed a 24-hour endurance obstacle challenge in Vegas, World’s Toughest Mudder. Cycled 900kms from Nice to Geneva on the Haute Route through the Alps. Travelled to Atlanta, Georgia to give a presentation at a social media conference. Went road tripping in California and slept under the stars on top of a hill, over looking the most incredible ocean sunset.
I feel so grateful that I have the opportunity to travel and to choose to visit the places that inspire me. I made a decision four years ago when I quit my 9-5 job, that I wanted to live my life to the max and create the opportunities I could only dream of. I knew we only have one shot, and we are the only ones that can turn our dreams into reality, so I started making big changes in my life. It’s led to the most amazing experiences!
After a summer full of wonderful (and some crazy!) adventures, I wrote a blog about my favourite winter adventures and asked my online community (YOU!) to share the adventures and challenges they are planning for winter 2016-2017 for a chance to win Amazon vouchers. It was so inspiring to see what you are all up to! I loved reading about people wanting to share their favourite activities with their children or spouses out. There were also a lot of skiing entries as to be expected and some cool winter climbing ideas too.
The two winners were Kev who is training every day in January to raise money and awareness for mental healthy charity, Mind. It’s their R.E.D (Run Every Day) campaign and something I massively back. I’m a huge believer in the power of sport to create a positive mindset and overall good health. Doing something positive for ourselves that gets us moving and feeling strong and confident each day can create life-changing results.
The second winner is Faye who is embarking on her first proper travelling adventure, and doing a month of it solo! She’s heading to Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia. I am so excited for her and know she is too!
Huge thanks to Holidaysafe for insuring me this year, I’ve really valued the peace of mind with tailored insurance to suit my travels and adventure challenges, but most of all I’ve loved the opportunity to run this competition for you. After reading about all your adventures this winter, it’s made me super stoked to hit the snow myself. Next stop Austria for skiing!
