Hi, I'm Ola
In 2014 I escaped my stressful 9-5 life in London and travelled the world, to learn more about myself and define my dreams and ambitions.
Stepping out of the safety of my day-to-day routine, having adventures and navigating through unexpected situations helped me to grow in confidence and conquer my anxieties. I returned to London a year later, more hopeful and assured, ready to start again.
However, mounting financial pressure and a lack of direction saw me slipping back into the same routines I had escaped in the first place. Anxiety slowly manifested, and after a few years I developed chronic migraine, which forced me to slow down and focus on recovery.
I learned that life is not defined by circumstance. I found adventure in smaller spaces and discovered communities that inspired me to get outside and follow my passions.
Spending time outdoors helped me to connect with what was around me and shift my focus
from escape to embrace.
By combining my love for nature and photography I'm building a life in which adventure, travel, fundraising, conservation and documentary making take centre stage.
I've travelled extensively across more than 30 countries and planned several major expeditions. As well as offering great travel advice, I've compiled some top resources from adventure communities and folk who helped me discover my potential.
I hope to inspire others to get outdoors and discover their own adventures, big or small.
