|Hello and welcome to June! Time for evening bike rides, river swims, and sleeping on hilltops…
👉 For years now I have been running a Summer Solstice Microadventure Challenge. Start making plans for some moments of wonder in the build-up to the summer solstice on June 21st. Go nice places and do good things. (And win fab kit by Alpkit…) Details here.
👉Moments of Wonder. A 45-second film to give you some ideas for seizing the summer.
👉 Do you live in Yorkshire or know it well? I’d love you to answer this short questionnaire if you do. I am looking to find interesting people and places around Yorkshire as part of an ongoing project into the world of living adventurously.
👉 A brilliant website if you’d like to learn to tie knots. (And if you don’t want to learn to tie more knots, then we are no longer friends.)
👉 I was honoured to be invited to become an ambassador for the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, a small charity doing big things to support the people, landscape and wildlife in this special place.
👉 Watch This Self-Proclaimed Idiot Hop Freight Trains in the US. A fantastic little film about a way of travelling that I’ve always fantasised about doing (NB: lots of swearing…).
👉 Anna McNuff has just set off to run 100 Marathons. Barefoot. Follow her adventure or join her, here.
👉 A poem In Praise of Walking.
👉 Forget Coding, we need to teach our children how to Dream.👉
