Being in the outdoors is a big part of my life. It’s my work, it influences my hobbies and is also important in how we spend our free time as a family. Creating this blog and putting my thoughts and feelings into words has not only been a big challenge, but is a slightly scary commitment.
So, here we go.
Firstly, I must say I huge thank you to my sister and brother-in-law who gave me all the information and support that has helped me get to where I am now. THANK YOU!
When people ask what I do for a living I explain that I have an ‘outdoor office’. I work as part of a team that provide outdoor activities to children and young people in Cardiff. I also have huge elements of training which bring up a number of challenges and experiences which I would love to share.
I have a creative element to my personality and nature is a big influence in my work especially, when it comes to my love of photography.
Most importantly, the outdoors is a huge part of our lives due to my beautiful 6 year-old daughter. She is at her happiest when she is knee-deep in mud, or attempting to climb an extremely high tree. She really makes me see the outdoors in a fresh and exciting way.
So, I’ve explained a little about what the outdoors means to me and how important I feel it is.
My first question, to set the ball rolling, is how and why the outdoor world is important to you?
I look forward to any and all comments, and I can’t wait to hear from you.
