Get outside. It’s the best place to be.
The outdoors is full of beautiful landscapes, new activities and adventures and unending places to explore. It can also be a really scary place though, too, if you don’t know what you’re doing – particularly for women and especially because we generally tend to be slightly more cautious than our male counterparts and so tend to avoid putting ourselves out there.
I want to get rid of that stereotype by making it as easy as possible to get us females into the outdoors!
For me, when I was growing up, not going outdoors and being where I wanted to be just wasn’t good enough but as I had no-one else to go with I simply went on my own. I’d pack my car up or wrap up to go out on the bike and just go. But, sadly, I’ve come to understand that not everybody is keen on this – I’m going to suggest it’s merely a matter of confidence in most cases.
Putting myself out there has helped me on so many levels and so now, I want to help motivate other women to take that step out the door, to have their own adventure, push their limits and explore what our fabulous little country has to offer. After all, the first step is the hardest – but I believe once taken, it’s hard to stop.
That’s where this new Women Outdoors series comes in – to inspire you all to get outside
I’m seeking out and asking some incredible women
I want to know how they go about achieving their dream goal or challenge.
- How did they come up with their ideas?
- How did they go about making it happen?
- How did they budget?
- What kit did they take?
- What skills did they need?
You get the idea… All the questions to get you thinking about walking out that door and making your own adventure.
You’ll have to keep an eye out here for these inspiring interviews, coming very soon. Visit my Instagram page (@women.outdoors) for more outdoor inspiration.
