Hi, I’m Bronwen @bronners.harris I grew up in Australia, I now live in Bristol. I camped and hiked a lot as a child but it hadn’t ever been a regular thing for me as an adult. I spent the majority of my time outside of work in gyms/crossfit and genuinely loved the atmosphere, competition and community it provided for me.
Due to injury I needed to look at other ways of keeping active. I headed to Wales to hike amongst the waterfalls for exercise and got hooked. I’m out every weekend and any other chance I can get, in Bristol and further afield.
Being outside in the fresh air is definitely amazing and so good for my wellbeing. But my favourite part is that I’ve discovered it’s the best way to talk about everything and anything with my sons without electronics. We have recently started mountain biking together and they are very excited to climb Snowdon this summer!
Currently making plans to solo hike the West Highland Way! It will tick a lot of firsts off for me and greatly take me out of my comfort zone……I can’t wait!
Hiking really is a great way to connect with people. Thanks for sharing your story and good luck with Snowdon and The West Highland Way.
