All About Me

My name is Deborah. I am a blogger, writer, poet, ‘story-ographer’, and adventurer – an over 50 something, redefining how to live the second half of my life more thoughtfully, simply and slowly. With pen and my camera in hand I record my experiences on this journey we call life. Sometimes to the mountains, sometimes across the sea and sometimes along a country lane.

I grew up in the north west of England, Lancashire to be precise. I grew with easy access to nature and many opportunities for adventures. As a child, I loved spending time at my grandparent’s house, playing hide and seek in the empty pig pens, collecting eggs and picking apples in the autumn, which would be stored in bedding boxes in the old, static caravan ‘down the field’. As I grew older, I began wandering the woods and hills of The Forest of Bowland and The Lake District. I travelled to different places in the world, New Zealand, Slovakia, Turkey, USA, Morocco,  but I always returned home.

This blog is a space for sharing thoughts on mindfulness, travel and life.
