Every time I come back from a hiking trip, my mind is already optimising my packing list for the next adventure – dreaming of lighter shoes, warmer layers, and, oh, binoculars. I promised myself I’d get binoculars a long time ago. Well, having just returned from a 5-day trip to Hornstrandir, a place where few people venture, I now find myself yearning for a sat phone and those weird-looking shoes that allow you to cross rivers with the grace of a ballerina.
