5 ways to discover more outdoors

Today’s Britain is a society of Netflix devotees, Youtube starlets and online gamers, as a nation we spend 90% of our time indoors, why! As a travel blogger it’s my passion to get out there, explore, and immerse myself in new activities. Here, I give you 5 ways you can shake up your routine and explore more outdoors.

Discover new cultures

Travel is all about discovery and pushing your limits. How many photos have you seen of the limestone caves of Thailand, or the selfie on the edge of the Grand Canyon? When considering your next holiday ask yourself, how can you make the most of the surrounding areas, check for inspiring walks and seek out the best viewpoints.

Explore more locally

Travel isn’t always about catching a plane. Can you say you’ve discovered all your surrounding areas have to offer? I’m blessed to base in Teesside, which is positioned on the verge of the Yorkshire Dales, Northumberland & the East Coast. We spend our weekends taking local walks, it costs nothing but time to get out there!

Mountains & Hikes

Set yourself a challenge, this month my fiancé is taking part in the 3 peak challenge which consists of climbing the 3 largest mountains in the UK (England, Scotland & Wales) in 24 hours. Not quite up to this extreme? No problem, choose one and take a leisurely stroll up, we promise the views from the top will be worth the hike.

Say no to hotels, say yes to alternative accommodation

A weekend away? A hotel? Been there, done that! Research alternative accommodation surrounding your chosen destination, how about a narrow boat on the canal? Or a Treehouse in the forest? Canopy and Stars have something to suit everyone.

Take up an outdoor activity

Find something you love doing outdoors, for me that’s Geocaching. No matter where you are there is always a Geocache close by. The worldwide outdoor treasure hunt has allowed us to discover a range of area’s we would never have visited. Thank you Geocaching!

Daily Booth; Social Media

I’ve had a bit of a Social Media kick as of late and decided there’s a few band waggons hanging around I feel the need to jump on.

Firstly, I’ve traded in 365project for blipfoto. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this one yet and it still remains to be decided whether I keep up my 365 alongside blip. I felt a new community was in need. After a year on 365 I’d become settled, content, if you will, so a new challenge should hopefully hold my interest a little longer.

Secondly, as of today, I’ve joined the Daily Booth community. Not quite sure how it work yet, nor what I will gain from it I thought I’d try it none the less. Thus, proving that new hair really does give you a new lease in life.

.. it would appear noone likes me on there yet! .. anyway .. if your a lover of any of these feel free to get intouch.. I need a friend.. or 10!

Jenna Marbles; Youtube Sensation

American TV; Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl returned to the UK last night with a bang. The episode saw Serena host a Tiffany’s themed shower for Blair and her fiancé and, as always, scandal was rife.

Here are a collection of my favourite quotes from Monday nights show. Feel free to suggest any that I’ve missed.

Seems Charlie’s in hot water, and she’s about to get burned- Gossip Girl

I will not tolerate this insubordination! Are you her minions or mine- Blair Waldorf.

If you excuse me I’ve gotta go kill myself, or max out my credit card… Whichever comes first!- Blair Waldorf.

Oh please! You’ve said more slanderous things than John Galliano after a few cocktails- Blair Waldorf.

Oh please, does anyone know what not invited means!- Blair Waldorf.

Looks like this showers officially over, and this time it’s B throwing in the towel- Gossip Girl.

Loyal readers, I’d like to apologise to all of you for this awful and embarrassing breach of security that happened tonight. In bad times like this you have many options. You can choose to go on the offensive and come out swinging, or you can pack your bags and admit defeat, or you can drink yourself into oblivion and hope it will all go away. Whatever I choose to do to win back your trust, one things for certain, this is not the end between us ‘cos try as you might to fight.. you know you love me.
