Top Tips for the Active Adventuress...

 

Don�t spend a fortune on sunscreen...
No matter the season, being in the great outdoors for extended periods of time requires sunscreen, everyday, all day. Journeywoman suggests shopping for it at home at your favorite discount outlet. If you wait to buy it in a foreign country you�ll probably end up paying a whole lot more. One Journeywoman reader wrote to tell us about having to spend $40 for a 600 mL bottle in a small French village. sunscreen

Buy your silk underwear in Hong Kong...
We don�t mean your sexy black underwear. We mean long underwear which is a great buy in Hong Kong and is perfect for the active traveller. There are T-shirts and long sleeve tops in various colours that are produced as underwear but are nice enough to wear outside. They're very comfortable, especially in humid, hot climate and warm in winter too. And they don't need ironing so they're good for travelling and outdoor adventuring. Look for them in the women's underwear section of Chinese Arts and Crafts (Star House, opposite the Star ferry in Kowloon or at the Harbour Centre, Wanchai) or Yue Hwa Department Stores on Peking or Mody Roads in Kowloon. (Jan Hamilton, New Territories, Hong Kong) no bikini

A Journeywoman is always prepared...
A small bottle of water is never enough. When you are hiking, biking or walking, carry adequate amounts of water with you especially if it�s very hot and your destination is off the beaten track. P.S. Pop a mini first aid kit into your backpack, too. You never know when it might come in handy. Add a bottle of antibacterial soap -- the kind that needs no water -- and you�re all set. sun

She does a biking trial run...
A couple of weeks before you leave for your biking holiday, take a shakedown bike ride of 30-40 miles with full packs to determine the condition of your bicycle under weight and stress. Learn how to balance the added weight. Decide what you can take out of your packs to make them lighter. bike
