As I search the pages of Google, surf brands, budget sports brands, high end sports brands and more, I realise that finding a wetsuit, if you’re not a size 0-14, is hard.
And, I began to feel disheartened, fed up, a bit resentful I’m not a lithe Victoria’s Secret Model, and as if the sports I like doing aren’t really for people like me. I do not feel welcome. But, I like being in the sea, I want to get fitter, where are the brands for people like me?

It took me a long time to find a bag that ticked all my travel needs and could adapt to a trip that consisted of a mix of back packing, hostel, motel and hotel staying.

The obsession continued for about a month before I gave in and bought it for my trip to Australia. It did not disappoint, I love it and here’s why…

Take a look at my review of Teva sandals if you are you looking for a great all round shoe for your next adventure.
Getting the right kit for your trip is really very important. Finding decent shoes is a real struggle especially when you’re trying to fit a month’s worth of clothes and supplies to fit in a 20kg suitcase.

Footwear is tricky when your travel adventure has you hiking in rainforest and up mountains one moment, clambering through rock pools the next and then hitting the city to sight see.
I discovered Teva a week before I left and thanks to next day delivery I’ve had a solid two years of adventuring with excellent sandals!
