In brief...

I'm a Nature-lover, aspiring conservationist, and wannabe traveller in search of outdoor adventure.
My interests vary from conservation to education to heritage to Nature (biodiversity & wildlife) to outdoor activities to life in general.
They occupy most of my waking moment.

Easter break.

Spent last week hiking part of the Pennine Way, and it was a wonderful break. I was really happy just walking on the moors, even in rain and snow (just not strong winds please), a joy that I can scarcely find in city/day-to-day life. But taking such a long break from work also made me feel immensely guilty, and so it was with renewed fervour that I tackled my project this week. Still though, I can feel the melancholy of the city living kicking in.

Going up Great Shunner Fell (728masl) right before the snowstorm

Frequent companions

The joy of being outdoors

Scrambling over rockfalls beside the river Tees 
Battling ferocious sideways winds along the edge of High Cup Nick


Into the Open Air - Julie Fowlis (Brave OST)
This love, it is a distant star
Guiding us home wherever we are
This love, it is a burning sun
Shining light on the things that we've done

I try to speak to you everyday
But each word we spoke, the wind blew away

Could these walls come crumbling down?
I want to feel my feet on the ground
And leave behind this prison we share
Step into the open air

How did we let it come to this?
What we just tasted we somehow still miss

How will it feel when this day is done
And can we keep what we've only begun?

And now these walls come crumbling down
And I can feel my feet on the ground
Can we carry this love that we share
Into the open air?
Into the open air?
Into the open air?

This love, it is a burning sun
