This year, Berghaus decided to add an adventurous twist to this and perhaps start a new tradition in the process! Instead of giving the title to the first person entering your home, they decided that in 2018, we should make our first-foot the person we first GetOutside with.
I love a new year's day walk. It's a chance to clear the cobwebs from Christmas and start a new year on the right foot, as it were.
And so, along with my mum and stepdad, I headed down to Portland Bill in Dorset for a walk along the coast path!
The lighthouse is your typical red and white striped one, the one we all drew as children! There have been lighthouses on Portland since the Roman times, due to the shallow reef and the tidal race, which was super choppy on the day we were there thanks to the inbound Storm Eleanor.
In fact, my stepdad still ski's in a Berghaus jacket he got a long, long time ago and that's going strong too, so I'm looking forward to taking my new Ridgemaster jacket out and about on some more outdoor adventures in 2018!
I definitely feel that I got the year off to a good start as I have so many outdoor adventures lined up!
I think I've found a new tradition...
