I’ve always been into travel and adventure, whether that be by canoe, kayak, mountain bike, ski or my own two feet. These days though… I mostly use ten feet (eight belonging to my two horses).
I’ve travelled many places in the world (mostly with a white water kayak) and enjoy expeditions under my own steam of some sort -generally lasting for as long as I can wangle off work! For work -I am a Paramedic Practitioner employed by the Scottish Ambulance Service. 12hr shifts are long and tiring but it does give a good work/life balance with plenty of time off for adventure and exploring.
I’ve explored places such as remote areas of Turkey, Canada, Mexico, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Australia, America, Sweden and most of Europe. However, my favourite place in the world that I always come back to, is the Scottish Highlands.
Since 2010 I have been exploring the Highlands by horse back and it has taken me to stunning places near where I live that I never knew even existed. With the horses it has encouraged me to explore the Glens rather than always bag the hill! I love the slower pace of travelling with a pack horse and the flexibility it gives, being able to camp in more remote places as you have everything you need right there with you!
