Find interesting outdoor pursuits around the country is not so difficult. This site is placing a particular emphasis on London and Scotland.
It rains more than 300 days a year in the UK. This is why it is so important to get out on a daily basis to feel connected. Leaving the home and climbing into a car, bus or a train to get to and from work is not enough. You need to find time to remain outdoors. Be it just sitting in a garden or a park, whizzing along on roller skates or on a bike through towns or rolling hills.
Benefits of being outside
We strongly believe that the simple act of being outside is more important even than being physically active whilst outdoors. According to statisticians who are in the know, Brits stay outside for an average less than 34 minutes a day. This includes the times waiting for a bus or train. Compare this with 65 minutes in France and 2 hours and 35 minutes for Spaniards and 6 hours for Costa Ricans. The gyms are full of people who are desperately trying to recreate a sense of the outdoors through physicality.
Feel free to contact us with any suggestion for a unique outdoor topic (like mushroom picking). We’ll gladly look at it and if interesting we’ll add it to this site.
