Introducing Giles Blackie…

We’re really pleased to introduce our latest Everyday Adventurer Giles Blackie who’ll be blogging for us during April…

I think ‘Everyday’ and ‘Adventure’ are two words that have become increasingly important to me over the last few years studying at University. I’m currently in the midst of my final year reading Geology and I have certainly come to realise that a mix of studying and outdoor adventure is needed to keep me on track.

I’m one of the lucky few to have been brought up in Cornwall, so naturally I have been surrounded and involved in countless ‘extreme’ sports to busy myself with. Out of many, I predominantly spend my free time surfing, mountain biking, kayaking and swimming. Dabbling in a few others every once in a while and depending on seasons.

For the last few summers I have been fortunate enough to be employed by the RNLI as a Beach Lifeguard. Not only allowing me to spend literally everyday in and around the Sea, but also providing me with a vast amount of training ranging from Casualty Care to IRB Helmsman.

Over the next month I have a multiday paddle planned down the Fowey River, a few 50+mile mtb loops on Dartmoor and a bit of Surfing in between. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to be April’s guest blogger for Berghaus, and I look forward to sharing my mix of University combined with a pursuit of everyday adventure here in the South West.
