Connect with Nature

One of my plans for this year is to get outside a lot more than in the last few years, partly driven by a need to put down the phone, and also to get fresh air to blow away the cobwebs...

There'll also be plenty of chance to do that in the next year, as I start my role with the Ordnance Survey as a GetOutside Champion.

I also bought a suitable book from Foyles on the way home from the meeting of the Champions in the New Forest.

It's written by Tristan Gooley: the 'Natural Navigator', and is called 'How to connect with Nature'
