Bex Band is founder of Love Her Wild, a female adventure community.
In 2016 I I decided to hike the length of Israel….despite being completely unfit and inexperienced. At the time I was fed up with my life and worn down from working jobs I didn’t enjoy. I was looking to shake things up and for no apparent reason hiking over 1000km seemed the logical solution to me at the time. While on this 2 month journey I discovered so much about myself. It also spurred a new passion for not just adventure but also for inspiring others to get outdoors.
Shortly after I founded the women’s adventure community, Love Her Wild. I began taking all female groups on expeditions and conservation work in both the UK and overseas. Traffic to my blog soared and before I knew it I was a speaking, writing and adventuring all over the world.
Adventure has not only helped me become the best and happiest version of my self but has also given me the confidence to create a life and career that I love.
Big Wales Retreat is going to be an exciting opportunity for me to share my story. Of all the talks I have delivered, festivals are my favourite. Sat in a tent, stripped away from your life luxuries and surrounded by like minded individuals, you are presented with a unique formula. One that allows the headspace to dream and the inspiration to imagine change in your life.
I look forward to seeing you there! Who knows…..maybe next year will be the year that changes your life forever!
