"The great outdoors, adventure and my dog are three of my favourite things. I like to combine all three of them as much as I can! Exploring the Lake District most weeks taking photos of what I see along the way, I believe that making the most of your home country is super important. I also have so much fun on the green lanes and offroading in my old Jeep"
