Outdoors: We absolutely love the outdoors and spending time together as a family is our number one priority.

We’re lucky to live in the French alps which provides natural beauty in bucketloads. Most weekends we can be found either in the mountains or on the shores of the various Lakes the area has to offer.

In the summer we love hiking, yoga, rock climbing & mountain biking but living so close to the mountains also allows us to enjoy winter sports too. We didn’t learn to ski/ snowboard until we were in our 20s but Amelie has been fortunate enough to begin learning to ski from the age of 3. She absolutely loves spending the weekends in the snow and it allows us to spend precious time outdoors together as a family.

We really want Amelie to grow up appreciating the natural world but also to recognise its fragility and the impact we all have on the planet.

You can follow what we get up to whether it’s a weekend walk in the countryside or our travels further afield. We try to make the natural world exciting and inspiring for Amelie and look forward to sharing these ideas with you.

Russ is a professional photographer so will be making sure our outdoor adventures are well documented on our blog.
