Last weekend I rose with the birds and set off across London in search of adventure. Well, in search of The Adventure Travel Show at least. Even though the show’s been going for 20 years I’d never heard of it before and wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived at Kensington Olympia.
Set out on one floor the place was bustling with eager travellers, keen to snap up a bargain in between seminars and panel talks. We opted to give the seminars a miss – I’m sure they were great but at £45 they were beyond my budget for the day. But no matter. In between entering every competition in sight and lusting after expensive adventure holidays we managed to get along to a couple of panels and they were brilliant.
