Luxe Tempo is perhaps a lesser known camping brand, but today I thought it would be nice to feature some of their gear. Because Luxe Tempo is a great company that produces high quality, lightweight gear that’s perfect for backpackers and wilderness explorers, like myself. All of their products are designed to maintain an optimum level of weight and space. A single rucksack can hold all of these items, along with clothing and other small gear, or you can simply strap them to the top or bottom to remain completely hands free. Their Sleeping Pad perhaps weight the most of these three featured items, but even so, by comparison to comparable pads on the market, it seems lighter and smaller when stored than any other of its quality.
When it comes to hiking and mountaineering shoes, I prefer an all-terrain shoe that has the capability of keeping my ankles unbroken, while keeping my feet cool and comfortable. This requires a special build of shoe that protects the foot from the outside, but allows for a breathable experience on the inside. The outer fabric must be strong, typically Gore-Tex, and the tread must be thick and dynamically designed to allow for optimum traction. Because if you’ve ever spent hours upon hours trekking through forests, through wetlands and over mountains, then you know what I’m talking about. A shoe is meant to get you safely from point-A to point-B, but the problem that a lot of economy shoes have is that they either don’t properly protect the foot or they aren’t built well enough to withstand the elements. And if you’re without either, at any point, you will encounter some serious problems; from moisture issues to a slew of physical injuries.
No matter how much one might like their job, everyone reaches that point where they would just have a break. It’s important to make the most out of holidays and vacations because they are your one shot of recharging the batteries for another long round of work, not to mention all the other duties that might come up such as taking care of the kids or the house. Now, you might be inclined to wonder about the best vacation destinations available. Truth be told, as long as you’re having fun and relaxing, any destination can be considered the best. But there really is no doubt about the fact that occupying one of the various Fiji private villas available is something you can’t go wrong with. There are many locations available along the numerous islands that comprise the country, such as the Raiwasa Grand Villa.
So, there I was… (that’s how all good stories start out, right?) In a remote region of Ireland, hiking up a mountain with a massive rucksack weighing me down and a camera bag strapped over my shoulder. The wind was whipping at me in bursts of seventy and eighty miles per hour, nearly bowling me over. As I staggered with each step up the crooked, narrow steps, my mind went numb with the task at hand and for awhile I lost track of progress and simply inched forward. The day was cloudy and warm, and the fresh sea air from the Atlantic blew in a subtle chill that kept me cool enough to go on.
The Spate EH INS Boot is a dynamic industrial boot that may be the perfect option for travelers who rough it and explore the wilderness. Not only because they’re made surprisingly well, but due to the wide range of features that Dr. Martens has designed and included in the shoe. Dr. Martens are one of those famous brands that are better known for their fashionable shoes, especially when it comes to their boots with the more youthful markets of the world. And what they’re lesser known for are their industrial line of boots; at least in the fashion circles. But there’s no reason for that, because they make a fantastic hardcore boot with all of the safety features one could dream up and desire. Read further as I’ll cover these features more in-depth.
Backpacking the world and roaming from place to place is a special thing that only people who do it truly understand. There’s a freedom in being able to wander, where there are no time crunches and no external expectations, and (if you’re lucky enough) no end date. It’s not the easiest way to travel, but it certainly can be the cheapest. Sure, your back is burdened with the weight of your rucksack, and everything you own is strapped over your shoulders, but when you can go for months, living out of a pack, and see and experience the different cultures, the landscapes, the difference from where you originated, you’re giving yourself a unique opportunity to be reborn as a new you; one that has seen things that few others have and one that has experienced other cultures, ways of life, and new perspectives that you never knew existed. Because once you’ve expanded your mind to accept the new world view, a real understanding of what life is, can and will grip you, if you search long enough and with a true enough heart.
