Welcome. Välkomna. Bienvenue. 

I'm Kate.

An award winning outdoor and adventure blogger with an insatiable need to be in the mountains or near the sea.

This year I'm fortunate to have been reselected 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. Some fared better than others...

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 climbing...

I drink too much tea, have been on Mastermind and can sometimes be found giving naval history talks to cadets and schools. Email me to find out more.

I volunteer with Team Rubicon UK & The Duke of Edinburgh's Award and have chosen them as my charities for 2018's crazy events.
