#UKexplore February 2019

#UKexplore February 2019

Well how amazing has February 2019 been! The weather towards the end has been utterly incredibly and even amazing for over half term. What a change from last year when it was snowing!

From the looks of it you have all been out and about exploring and having lots of fun in the sun. I’ve even seen pictures of kids running through sprinklers in the garden in swimming costumes. I wasn’t that brave.

We now have over 38k photos tagged #UKexplore (I’m hoping that we might make it to 40k next month what do you think…. we love following the hashtag and we hope you enjoy it too. So what have we been up to in the UK.

When I am exploring the UK I tag all my UK days out photographs #UKexplore on Instagram and if you aren’t following me over there I’d love you to do so! You can also keep an eye on what we’ve been getting up to. 

Just in case you aren’t aware what #UKexplore is, it is our Instagram community that we have invited you all to join in with and share your favourite places across the UK and your outdoor adventures. To join in it doesn’t have to be a photograph one of the 534 National Trust properties (although we do think they are amazing); we want to see your ‘off the beaten track’ spots, too. It could be the most marvellous of meadows, the perfect place for a picnic, the loveliest lake for skimming stones, or rambling routes for running along. Wherever and whenever you’re out exploring, simply take a snap and upload it to Instagram so we can all share in your adventures and explore the UK with you. All we ask is that you use the #UKexplore hashtag so we can find you. You don’t have to be a blogger, anyone can join in and be in with a chance to win. So without further ado, who have I chosen this month….
