Escaped – Much Better Adventures’ all-new magazine

Posted on


Ta da! We’ve published an awesome little adventure mag.

Escaped is packed with our favourite bitesized adventures to get out of the city and into the best of the great outdoors.

Volume one features Morocco’s Mt. Toubkal, the Norwegian Fjords, Slovakia’s High Tatras and Bosnia’s Zupa Valley.

We also interview a legendary Swedish wolf tracker and get deep about ‘Friluftsliv’, a traditional Scandinavian concept and why it matters today.

It is a joy to put together and we’ll be releasing new volumes every sometimes.

Look out for it at places we like around London.

Want a free copy of the first edition sent out to you? Let us know by emailing escaped@muchbetteradventures.com and we’ll get Pat and his cat on the case.

Enjoy.

We’ve won a national business award!

We’re delighted to say we won our first business award last night and are now the proud owners of a shiny gong for business growth!

The #MakingBusinessHappen awards, organised by the University of South Wales, were set up ‘to recognise graduates of UK universities who have gone on to start their own successful and growing businesses with an effective or innovative idea’.

The award includes a generous cash prize which will be reinvested in the business, along with valuable mentorship and advice from the award sponsors NatWest, Santander and the University of South Wales Business School.

We also met some really talented young entrepreneurs on the night in Cardiff (like Edward Shorney, who went home with the Aspiring Entrepreneur award for his startup Go Rookie) and are expecting big things from them all!

The guys on the trumpets were pretty good too:

 

We’re honoured to be recognised and it’s entirely down to you for supporting and sharing Much Better Adventures – thank you!
