Welcome. Välkomna. Bienvenue. Tervetuloa. Aloha. Salve. Fàilte.
After gaining a degree in International Relations from Plymouth University, I wanted to join the Royal Navy, before becoming a defence correspondent. I swiftly then realised that would probably never happen... Kate Adie I am not, though I can rock body armour and a helmet if need be. I now run operations for a private maritime security company.
I started this blog as something to do around work as I love writing, and now I try to spread my love of adventure and the outdoors with everyone I meet! This year I'm fortunate to have been chosen as an Ordnance Survey GetOutside Champion.
There is a nautical theme running throughout my blog, as I adore the sea and all things relating to it. I sail, I teach Sea Cadets and have tried almost every water-sport imaginable. I have blogged about all things sailing over at Southampton Focus previously.
I'm also a huge naval history geek. I was a quarter finalist on Mastermind with a specialist subject of 'The Life and Career of Horatio Nelson'.
Last year I reached the summit of Kilimanjaro and am in the planning stage of my next adventure!
I'm a sucker for a mountain, after a childhood spent playing with skipping ropes on the stairs, climbing the 'Matterhorn'! If I'm not at work I'm either up a hill, by the sea, in the gym or learning to climb!
Aiming to summit Mont Blanc in 2018 and the Matterhorn in 2019.
