I'm Dawn-Marie and I live in Ayrshire, South West Scotland.

Think of a rugged coastline with a mix of sandy and rocky beaches, castles, stunning sunsets, rolling hills, woodlands walks and a few magical islands across the water to explore. I still haven't explored all of Ayrshire and Arran.

I started my blog in November 2015 as a personal challenge and to teach myself to write and learn new digital skills. I soon realised that the only way to learn is to do it yourself.

I also feel that my blog will eventually become my digital legacy. My children can look back and hopefully enjoy reading about my challenges. I love them both very much.

I love to go on long walks, hike and cycle. I've not been as active the past few years though and my blog has been quieter. I try to post photos on my Instagram and share videos on my YouTube channel and more recently TikTok.

I hope to get back outdoors this year (2022) to find my inner calm again. Getting outside in the fresh air with my eyes gazing across our beautiful landscape just makes me feel so much better.

I hope you enjoy reading my stories and feel inspired to challenge yourself to try something new.

It's so important to be happy in life. Do what makes you feel alive! 💙
