Astran & Elisa take Ollybars to 'The End of the World'

Astran & Elisa take Ollybars to 'The End of the World'

Elisa sent me an Instagram of her wild camping trip to Rota Vicentina on the Atlantic coast of Portugal. They'd survived for three days fuelled by Ollybars! I had to know more .......

"We recently came back from a summer holiday in Portugal, in which the two of us hiked the Rota Vicentina trail, along the gorgeous shores of the west coast of Portugal. This nature resource once know as the 'end of the world' consists of countless stunning beaches amongst rouged, shear cliffs, massive sand dunes and green, Rocky Mountains covered in fragrant shrubs. There is no civilisation in sight so we could trek for miles on end not coming across a single building or person.

The days where hot with the sun shining down on us intensely. The fragrant ocean breeze carrying smells from the camomile on the cliffs gave us a breath and kept us going. In contrast, the evenings were chilly with blustery winds carrying sand and fresh ocean spray up the beach. We kept shelter at night in our tent, setting it up at the end of each day and blowing up a little inflatable mattress. Astren and I, in our little tent, humbled by the massive sand dunes, the high cliffs surrounding us and the roaring sound of the crashing waves on the raw, natural coastline.

Our backpacks were heavy, all our food supplies and water had to be carried with us in order to get us through the warm, endless days. Our main source of energy came from our little secret, Ollybars. These delicious bundles of goodness, all-natural ingredients, slow release energy, kept us going for long periods at a time. They also kept us motivated while we traipsed through the sandy paths, fantasising about our next snack stop when we could have a break and eat our scrumptious Ollybars.

Flavor, energy and nutrients aside, Ollybars were the perfect snack for the camping trip as they were light to carry and easy to pack. We fitted so many of them in our backpacks that we could both have one each day for breakfast and lunch. Filling and satisfying, they offered our fatigued bodies all the nutrients needed and made our challenging trip that little more comforting and special.

I have always been the adventurous type, since graduating from school my very first travels alone consisted of small excursions around my home country, Australia. Later on, and as I grew older and more fond of traveling, those excursions grew to bigger, longer trips, covering many countries at a time and lasting for months. When I eventually met the love of my life, I settled in London and frequently made trips and journeys together, all over Europe and the U.K. I had met my perfect match.

On behalf of both of us I would like to thank Ollybars for providing for us when nothing else was available and giving us the fuel to appreciate the amazing nature and great outdoors" Amen and thank you Elisa & Astren :-)
