Sometimes you don’t have to journey too far for an adventure.
Last weekend we took a road trip through The Pennines, the mountain range that divides the North West of England from Yorkshire and the North East. This area is widely regarded as one of the most scenic place in the United Kingdom, it certainly didn’t disappoint.
We didn’t have a plan of where to go or what to see, just to explore and spend some time with nature. We started in the village of Wearhead in County Durham and made our way back towards Leeds in West Yorkshire.
The quiet stillness of the early morning sun afforded us some truly breath-taking views, and the ethereal light made everything seem like a magical secret.
I love being alone in a place as you can really feel and appreciate it for what it is, instead of trying to constantly avoid other people or things.
It took us a lot longer to get anywhere since we stopped pretty much every mile. There was just so much to explore.
Sitting amongst the flowers and green house in the sun was the perfect end to our mini road trip.
So next time you have a weekend at home, take some time out to explore your local area.
