The Travel Collective is about like-minded people coming together to share stories and be creative – all at the foot of Skiddaw in The Lake District. Over two days in October (21-22), you'll join the Millican Basecamp on our farm in Braithwaite, just outside Keswick.

Also joining us will be Miscellaneous Adventures, who will run a two day woodcarving workshop, teaching you the skills and craft of wooden spoon making, in a calm and creative setting. You’ll also learn a few super-useful outdoors skills and unlock some of the secrets of the woods and surrounding nature.

On the Saturday evening Millican will host a series of campfire talks by Andrew (Miscellaneous Adventures), Jorrit (Co-Founder of Millican) and a Guest Speaker (to be announced), as they tell us about the role travel has played in their lives. In the shelter of our Tentipi we will eat and drink together and share the meaningful journeys we've been on.
