I have always been interested in the outdoors and have been hiking in the Mourne Mountains for many years. I love travel and learning about other lands and cultures. I speak English, Spanish and I am currently learning Dutch. I have experience walking in a variety of mountainous areas in the UK and Ireland aswell as those further afield including the Picos de Europa in Spain, Gran Paradiso in Italy and the Fimmvörðuháls Trail in Iceland. I qualified formally as a Mountain Leader in order to share my love of mountains with other people and help them to enjoy them in a responsible way. I successfully achieved this qualification having demonstrated, during a rigorous assessment, my expertise in a variety of elements including group leadership in the mountains, local knowledge, navigation in poor visibility, flora, fauna and meteorology.
