The Outdoors – One Man’s Nirvana

I have a passion and interest for the outdoors which is second to none. Growing up in rural Nottinghamshire, England,  I spent much of my youth exploring Sherwood Forest and working alongside my German grandfather in the countryside. Often travelling to far flung scenic landscapes, my grandfather proved to be a major influence in shaping my love and appreciation for the land we live in.

I spent many happy days out amongst the trees, birdwatching and seeking flora and fauna – often staying out overnight in a D.I.Y shelter. So, some things don’t change!

It’s only in recent years I’ve pursued my passion for the landscape in such an obsessive manner (due to a health scare), often over-ruling any other interest in my life – though the wife always comes first. Currently a suburbanite – perhaps it’s not a surprise I feel that longing to be back out in the countryside?

There’s more to it than that, of course. But it’s where my heart lies and always will.
