Lake_District

After a visit when I was 15, I walked in the Lake District on Duke of Edinburgh expeditions and on trips with mates. Years later, after travelling for a year, I settled here with my partner and kids. That was eight years ago and we now both run businesses in the county. We'll never be true locals, but we've definitely got under the skin of the place :)
