Heading yonder this Christmas? I thought I’d put together a handy little travel guide compilation. You’ll see that many of my posts are ‘slow food and hiking guides‘. I like to eat and hike, both mindfully.

A favourite dawn shot, climbing Mount Amos.

From my point of view, if I get 100 people to leave their comfort zone and get out of the city to move and eat real food in regional areas…well, I will die in peace knowing my job is done. If you’re planning some bush hikes this Christmas, here is my advice for planning a great hike

And so, a round up of some of my trips. Hopefully they inspire you to get out and explore new destinations.

    Thank You! It was a real pleasure reading all your posts, not only these few about your trips… Wishing you many pleasant trips in the future and many more interesting and very inspirational posts…
    Merry Christmas!

    Thanks Sarah… These posts of yours (in particular the Skoki Lodge and Dorset pieces) have helped shape some of my travel planning for next year. I’d been wanting to go to Europe for a long time, and after gritting my teeth and saving pretty diligently for 18 months I finally paid for the final chunk of a month-long holiday taking in Paris, Berlin and Prague for next May, just last night! Yay! I’m ‘just a waitress’ so this is no small achievement.

    Anyway, as part of this we’ll be doing a four night hiking trip in the Tarn Gorge, in the Languedoc-Rousillion region of France. I’ve organised it through a tour company and we’ll be doing ‘inn to inn’ hiking with transport between villages for our bags each day. Seemed the easiest way to do it because the region is so remote, and so much of the rest of the trip will be around urban centers.

    I loved seeing all your photos of the journeys and adventures you have taken over the last year or so, and hope I will have some amazing memories (and hiking Insta-porn, haha!) of my own to look back on after our trip.

    Thanks for sharing, and Merry Christmas!

    Hi Sarah, these guides are all great. So inspiring.
    Please come to South Australia and provide a travel guide to Flinders Ranges! Perhaps in autumn/winter once the weather is less harsh 🙂 Merry Christmas.

    Your photos, your words, the lovely food… I can’t believe I haven’t called my travel agent and started packing already. There’s no time to waste, life is meant to be lived. You’re such an inspiration and I’m so glad you take the opportunity to share with us.

  • Ahhh Sarah, this is perfect!! Last night I became completely overwhelmed trying to imagine holidays to various ‘warm’ destinations for Winter 2015- it felt ‘ick’ and I instantly feared landing in a soul-less environment and feeling set up as a consumerist tourist- which is the ‘ick’. So the antidote to my overwhelming fear? ‘Sarah Wilson will help simplify and clarify this’. Sure enough, you have. Bless you! Happy New Year to you too- may 2015 be your best yet x
