Just like any loving parent, I want the best for my children. I want my children to learn to love maps.

I love maps, I always have. There is nothing quite like unfolding a map, laying it out on the floor and then stretching out alongside it to take it all in....

Based on the weather on our 125 mile drive we were expecting to get wet! And when I say wet, I mean drowned-cat drenched. It poured most of the way. The coastal hills of North Wales were shrouded in a soggy blanket which was being consistently and vigorously wrung out...

Who better to share adventures with than your family? Growing up as one of 7 children there was never a shortage of adventure buddies. And we were very lucky with the places that we lived, and the places our extended family lived, that there was a never a shortage of p...

Just over a month ago I wrote a blog post stating I would be giving the Wildlife Trusts 30 Days Wild a go, and I certainly succeeded in having 30 wild days, although not all of them in quite the way I had intended.

I knew it was going to be a busy month as I was startin...
