About The Urban Wanderer
Hi, and welcome to theurbanwanderer.co.uk, I’m Sarah – The Urban Wanderer. (the bloke is my other half, Jit! You’ll see a lot of him too as he’s my exploring partner)
I’m a misplaced country girl making the most of living in the city by urban wandering. It’s not all about the city though, I have a passion for being outside whether it be the city, the suburbs or the countryside – anywhere I can fulfill my need to explore, take an adventure and enjoy some play!
My mission with this blog is to inspire outdoor adventures for everyday explorers and curious minds. That means that you’ll find something to get you excited to go on an adventure, a kick start that outdoor love plus hints and tips to keep you going.
You don’t have to be a pro to get involved either! Only a short 4 years ago, I got myself off crutches after using them for over 10 years following a knee injury. I took my motivation, added some confidence and determination and I have now gone from struggling to get 3,000 steps per day to an average of 22,000 every day.
Getting outside is the perfect way to make new friends, get to know the people in your area, increase your fitness levels and boost your mental health. All those amazing positives as well as getting to see new things and enjoy the incredible world that is around you.
Join me on an adventure, take part in a quest and start to discover and explore the places where you live. It’ll get you moving, enjoying the outdoors and boosting your mental and physical health. You’ll probably shed a couple of pounds too!
For inspiring photos and to see where I am up to, head over and find me on Intagram – you can also join in with my weekly Photowalk challenges over there too, sharing your pictures from your adventures all with the weekly theme.
Getting outside doesn’t mean buying loads of special kit and heading out to far and distant places! Sometimes the best places are nearby, you just need to hunt them out to find them. On my blog, I share places that you can get to easily from Manchester and loads of places to explore in our fine city – including cool places to picnic!
Just start where you are an the rest will follow!
…and the other sides of The Urban Wanderer
As well as being The Urban Wanderer, I’m a Transformative Coach at Your Happy Life and a food blogger at Susty Meals and know how much food, movement and connection goes to building a healthy lifestyle that will keep you happy and motivated.
Oh yeah, I’m also an eco-friendly cat loving artist with a passion for the surreal. (I love all animals really, but cats are my favourite having six furry friends in my family) I’m sure you’ll get to know more about me and my crazy ways in my posts.
I believe that the world can be seen in so many ways thorough walking – I’m kind of a modern day Charles Dickens, but in Manchester and a woman! So join me in my wanderings, enjoy my musings and findings and grab some inspiration for your own urban or countryside adventures.
For now, get outside and keep exploring!
