Isn’t it lovely to take an afternoon and escape the bustling city for a while? I love London – but I’m always going to be just a little bit of a country bumpkin at heart.
On Saturday afternoon, I avoided heading back to to the Big Smoke and swapped my suede flats for hiking boots instead – it was time to get back to basics.
The best thing about Sussex is that you can drive up a hill and just escape the world for a while. And then, once you’ve wandered and wandered and wandered – you can get back in the car and rejoin it again.
I spent almost all of my Saturday afternoon hiking the South Downs – walking for hours and just taking it all in. It’s important I think, when you’ve spent all week in the hectic pace of the city, to slow down and just enjoy a balance.
Here’s to more adventures!
Messy walks call for old jeans, old jackets and a whole lot of black denim.
Hope you had a great weekend too – whether it was in the countryside or the city.
