Walking Through Paradise

A Magnificent Journey Through Western Europe’s Largest Nature

A light-hearted, uplifting and inspiring account of one couple’s fifteen day odyssey through the French and Italian Alps, exploring the Vanoise and Gran Paradiso National Parks.

Just five days after their demanding four-week adventure around the Matterhorn, Esther and Dan set out into the wilderness once again. Their goal is simple, to enjoy a peaceful walking holiday in the Alps. However, as usual, the moment their shoes hit the trail their plans go straight out of the window and the adventure takes on a life of its own.

Driven by an inexplicable thirst to always look beyond the next summit, their initially sedate hike from refuge-to-refuge soon becomes an expedition across blizzard-ridden 3000-metre passes, tumultuous boulder fields and snow-packed glaciers, turning each day into a unique pilgrimage through some of the most remote and stunning Alpine scenery they’ve ever seen.

Sleeping in everything from luxury hotels to snow-covered storm-shelters and abandoned tree houses, their quest to lose themselves in the heart of the Alps becomes far more than a search for nice views and exciting stories. It’s about rediscovering the solitude of the hills and the calm of the night sky, miles from civilisation and the chaos of the modern world.

A perfect book for anyone who wants to experience the awe-inspiring magic of Europe’s most beautiful wilderness.

Just Around The Matterhorn

Lose yourself in the heart of the Alps, in the shadow of Europe’s most iconic mountain.

Three busy years after their last epic thru-hiking adventure, Dan and Esther are eager to set out once more into the wilderness. Starting in the beautiful heart of the high Swiss Alps, they decide to try the Tour of the Matterhorn, a loop around Europe’s most iconic mountain. But with no fixed itinerary or timeframe, they find themselves taking a somewhat different route as they hike and camp higher than they’ve ever been before.

Having started out determined to “take it easy”, they instead find themselves pushing their boundaries across glaciers, precipitous ridges and vertical laddered cliffs while also battling illness and at times being hardly able to eat. Yet through the kindness of strangers, the inspirational people they meet and by leaning on each other when the going gets tough, a challenge that could have been a step too far instead becomes the adventure of a lifetime.

With almost 25 vertical kilometres of ascent over 320 kilometres of hiking, surrounded by dozens of famous 4000 metre summits, monumental glaciers and remote mountain valleys, it’s an adventure not to be missed.

Love, Fluff & Chasing Butterflies

Dog Poems Inspired By An Amazing True Story

It was while touring through Europe in a motorhome that Dan & Esther decided to adopt Leela, an abandoned dog on the south coast of Spain. It wasn't something they'd ever planned to do, however, when she wagged her way towards them in a Spanish cafe they found themselves unexpectedly opening their rolling home to this cute little dog in need.

What they never expected was that just two weeks later Leela would give birth to six puppies!

What came next was a story of love triumphing over circumstances as they turned their lives upside down to care for the pups, ultimately taking to the road with five dogs in a motorhome.

Love, Fluff & Chasing Butterflies is a collection of uplifting, insightful and honest poems inspired by their experiences together.
