    These classic Czech bickies, adapted by Di's mum Barbara, are a tradition in the Westaway family at Christmastime, and they are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. They're so good because the main ingredient is love. 

    We call them Vanilla Crescents.

    How do you feel about pooping into a zip-lock bag and carrying it in your backpack? What about digging a hole in the ground for your business?

  • Birthday Celebrations

    If you’ve got a birthday, anniversary or other celebration while you’re out hiking, it can be hard to know what to bring to make it feel special.

    Here’s how to do it.

    Most people know walking is good for them. We feel it - in our bodies and in our brains. But could walking in nature actually help prevent and treat clinical depression?

    The secret, she says, is the dressing. Here's her super simple, secret recipe.
