“I’ve always been a bit of a rambler and explorer, and now I want to share some of the places I go to hopefully inspire others to put on their boots, pick a direction, and walk. I’m not a driver – anywhere I go is accessed by foot or by train – so I hope this can show others that sometimes you don’t have to go too far out of your area to find peace, quiet, nature and beauty. I’m a firm believer that all of us finding a connection with the outdoors is an important thing – to mainly help us realise who we are when there is nothing, nobody, and no distractions around us.
Lockdown helped a lot of people become more aware of their surroundings and pushed them into the great outdoors, but for some, that’s much harder to do. I hope that these blog posts can at least help some of those unable to venture outdoors – for whatever reason – escape just a little bit, and I very much hope you enjoy joining in with my exploring.”
