  • Exploring Beyond Dundee (Lake District)

    I love being outdoors. The sun. The warmth (JK this is Scotland).  The stunning views.  Almost comparable to an evening in bed with Netflix and Domino’s.

Some people are stressed, others anxious. Some people don’t even get stressed! But one thing we all have in common is that our minds, and bodies, […]
