The ultimate

camping & hiking gear

I am born in a family that loves to travel the adventurous way. I also love their way of travelling, it’s so awesome. They owned a Land Rover Defender and went on vacation together with their good friends who also owns the same car, but different colour and version of the brand. Altogether we had so much fun going on adventure, we met lots of difficult 4x4 roads to beautiful locations around the world. Unreachable by normal car, the tracks were quite scary at times and our Land Rover took us through every time.

It was amazing to being able to have experienced all this. For sure I would love to continue their way of travelling and I already did some solo vacations. Both adventurous and a little bit of luxury as I couldn’t take the tent with me.

We’ve always had these perfect Therm-A-Rest mattresses and they last a lifetime.

It is important to know which size you should take and with the help of this chart you can find out the right size of your mattress.

So, if you are 6′ tall like me, then I should take at least the Large size. Although I love to have a wider mat as I roll over during the night sometimes.
