A Breath of Fresh Air

Walk Buckinghamshire

After a week of long commutes and rushed gym sessions, there’s nothing better than stretching your legs in the great outdoors.

Taking a breath of fresh air and getting some colour in your cheeks is the perfect remedy for a week in the city.

Especially when you have weather like this.

With the family in tow, we headed over the hills in search of the perfect pub lunch.

It was hard to believe that this was the middle of January. With the sun beating down, scarves and gloves were peeled off, replaced by sunglasses and light jackets.

With the ‘Into the Woods’ soundtrack ringing in my ears, my eyes scanned the forest for a flash of Red Riding Hood or a creepy Johnny Depp.

Instead, I settled for a fleeting glimpse of a deer’s bum…

Wildlife photography may not be my forte…

Emerging from the woods, we were greeted by swaying fields of wilted corn and fluffy bushes of Bedwine.

Eye-wateringly expensive but a treasure trove of home inspiration.

I was in heaven.

Just don’t look at the price-tags…

With the walk over, we scraped the mud off our boots and headed to the pub. With a gin & tonic in hand and a steaming plate of lamb and mash in front of me I was perfectly content.

Sometimes a breath of fresh air is all you need.
