Winter Walks

There's something so refreshing about exploring the countryside. Especially when you've spent the majority of 2015 cooped up at your desk doing uni work!

Frosty puddles, snow falling and wildlife galore! Winter is one of the most magical and enjoyable times of the year to go walking and exploring (providing you wrap up warmly!) Some of the fondest memories of my childhood have been walks with my parents in the remote areas of Scotland, Wales, The Lake District and the North York Moors. However, I've been slacking and it's been a long time since I walked anywhere further than the fields where I take my dog. So I've decided it's time for a change! I'm planning to spend 2015 exploring more of the beautiful countryside I'm lucky to live near to. (This also helps with my New Years Resolution to get fitter. Two birds with one stone!)

So I donned my pink wellies, jumped in my car and headed to a nearby National Trust park, armed with my boyfriend and a camera! We had such an amazing couple of hours out in the fresh air, walking, talking and taking in our stunning surroundings. We saw plenty of deer and pheasants, and it began snowing towards the end of the day which was super exciting (I love snow!!). Overall it was just a really lovely afternoon and it felt so amazing to get outdoors after spending way too long trapped inside writing essays! It was so beautiful, especially looking out across the lake as snow was falling on it, the pictures don't do it justice!

I can't wait to get out and about to more lovely places like this through the rest of the year!
