Since I'm doing this Walk 1000 miles 2017 challenge with Country Walking magazine, I've had a ton of people say 'Oh I couldn't do that - where do you find the time?!' equally I've had many people say they'd like to join in too which is great! However I've noticed that people seem to be … Continue reading Outdoors: 7 Ways to Walk More in 2017
Pictures throughout are some of my favorites from 2016. Head on over to instagram to see more! I managed to take most of Christmas off (nothing to do with my amazing organisational skills - just luck I think.) Christmas in our new home with all of our families around us has been exceptional. As my … Continue reading Lifestyle: Hello January 2017!
I'm certainly making an effort to get outdoors more often - in fact twice a day every day. Over on Instagram, I've been on a 2 week walking challenge - 2.5 miles a day .

Well it's been a sunny Saturday in North Wales and we've been using it to our advantage to paint the fences, summer house and benches.

Anyhow, during a break, one of the neighbours popped around with … Continue reading Day 25 Eating Wild #30DaysWild
Hello, I can't believe 30 days wild is nearly over. I've had so much fun documenting my wild experience and whilst I've not documented everyday (partly because during this, I've been getting my new house sorted) I have been outside come rain and shine. I'm generally an active person anyway but I think this challenge has … Continue reading Day 22: Listening to Wild Sounds #30DaysWild
Wow Day 7 of the 30 Days Wild challenge and I'm having so much fun! Are you? A few nights ago, I spotted a glow of golden peeping out from the hills and I just had to chase it for a photograph! I encouraged Nan to come along with me since she likes to stay active … Continue reading Day 7: Chase a sunset #30DaysWild
Some of you may know that I’ve recently moved. I’m now living on a small holding about 8 miles from a town and around 4 miles from a small village with one shop and a pub. You probably think I’m mad don’t you? I get told it all of the time – ‘you’re 24, you … Continue reading LIFESTYLE: IN TO THE WILD WITH ME -EMBRACING CHANGE
