Hey adventurous souls. My name is Stephi and I am super excited to perhaps be travelling with you this summer. I grew up in a little coastal town in beautiful East Lothian, studied Environmental Geoscience in Edinburgh and have been using the outdoors to find adventure, connection and purpose in my professional career ever since. I’ve worked in many different places and with many different demographics of people and I remain fascinated by the power of the outdoors to bring us together and make us feel alive. This summer, I’m excited to share some of the best corners of my home country with you – I promise there will only be a couple of midges (maybe!).
Place to Play
Icey seas, empty beaches, still mountain lochans, high mountain ridges, underwater kelp forests, and Caledonian pinewoods.
Not a lot of people know this
Once, while on a 2-month cycle trip in Nicaragua, I went to see a local shaman about a pesky rash that had been bothering me. The shaman lived in a cave in the hills and descended to the valley floor every couple of weeks to bestow his healing powers upon the community. His solution to my heat rash was to spit in my armpit – and it worked!
