This year has certainly been full of surprises for better or worse, with Covid-19 putting mass travel on-hold, as streets emptied and skies cleared of traffic. The summer offered some respite as we tried to escape the everyday with adventures closer to home, but now lockdown 2.0 has brought a halt to even domestic travel, with the UK divided on strategy.
The change of season has now reinvigorated old and new restrictions, meaning doorstep travel is a blessing to behold, if only to help the mental health of many who continue like me to work from home in the confides of the same four small walls. Keen to revel in the little things and appreciate those simple pleasures experienced in-between the madness that has been, I share a few highlights from my adventures of Britain’s National Parks that I visited for some much needed outdoor therapy over the brighter months.
Whilst I was unfortunately unable to venture further North this year, I do hope to explore the multi-facets of other national parks next year. I really have found a new appreciation for those journeys much closer to home, but admittedly like so many others I will also be hoping to venture someplace most exotic as well for a change of scene when we can. I’m intrigued to here from my readers, where will you go when we travel again?
1. Dartmoor National Park, Devon
2. Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales
3. New Forest National Park, Hampshire
4. Exmoor National Park, Somerset & Devon
