Spend four fantastic days on Loch Awe in Scotland in the hand of the great team from Howl Bush craft. The relaxing location and the team made this a very enjoyable journey. The knowledge both leaders had about canoeing, camping, Scotland, craft, fire, wild food etc was unlimited.
You were always in safe hands, yet never felt like you were in bubble wrap or on a guided tour. You took part in the day to day decision, the cooking, fire making – you really made the experience yours.
There were so much to do and learn that I often forgot to take my normal amount of photos 🙂 Though I did managed to record some great soundscapes, do check out soundscapes@woollypigs (bring your headphones)
At Howl we specialise in journeying skills, the Bushcraft we practice and teach is that of the traveler. There is a wonderful simplicity that comes from taking a trip in the outdoors, a pragmatism gleaned from necessity. We draw from this experience in the field to teach a set of skills and knowledge based in expedience and realism, skills that actually get used while outdoors
This is our home away from home, our tent. Totally bliss and calm when out camping. This location is in the Neouvielle Lakes in the Pyrenees.
Taking part in Photography: Developing Your Eye I is a 10-day photo challenge for bloggers of all photography levels, from beginning photobloggers to pro photographers over on wordpress.org. This is Day One: “Home” — Get Oriented, e.g. learning your camera so that you feel at home with it.
That prompted me to post a photo of a place I feel very much at home, no matter where I’m pitched, my tent.
Prompt: When you think of home, what do you imagine? You might picture a house from your past, your favorite neighborhood hangout, or a city you miss. And while home is often found on a map, it can also be less tangible: a loved one, a state of mind, a forgotten time.
