Even if you’re already pretty wild, 30 Days Wild can inspire you to try new things and help you feel more connected to the natural world.
Christine loves nature and animals, and over the years her interactions with the wild world have evolved from enjoying her garden birds to the more adventurous pursuits of wild swimming and long country walks. 30 Days Wild was a natural fit and Christine has taken part every year since it launched in 2015.
Christine committed herself to blogging about her 30 Days Wild activity every day, whatever the weather. This commitment was tested as early as day two, when the heavens opened on a trip to a local nature reserve.
“I was not dressed for rain! I stood in ballet shoes with no coat! But we decided to take a short visit to the reserve none the less. On our short walk we rescued a bumblebee who was struggling in the rain and snapped shots of beautiful wildflowers like comfrey and meadow cranesbill.”
Water continued to play a part in Christine’s wild June, as she felt the touch of drizzle on her face during a forest bathing session and got even wetter with a wild swim in the Lake District. There were drier days however, with time spent enjoying darting damselflies and soaring swallows. Sharing her wild adventures with the world made the experience even more special.
“30 Days Wild has been wonderful in focusing the mind on the nature that is all around. Also blogging everyday has been challenging but ultimately enjoyable. It feels like a real achievement. Would I do it all again? Probably. There is so much out there to see and learn.”
