For our very first highlight on our amazing Elsewhere Ambassadors, we're handing over the blogging reins to Bec & Matt, an awesome outdoors-loving couple from Warrington, Cheshire! Over to them...
We are both so passionate about seeing as much of the world as humanly possible. For us, the outdoors provides a magnitude of tranquillity and serenity. It is a chance to escape the rat race of everyday life . As a couple we are constantly on the go and throw ourselves into all that we do. We love hiking together and climbed our first mountain Helvellyn, when we were 17 years old. That was just the start of our love for the great outdoors, any chance we get to travel somewhere new, we're off. We've since conquered 7 summits together, inter-railed around Europe, completed the NC500 and have jetted off to 12 countries together. Everywhere and anywhere is on our bucket list. We like to dream BIG and live boldly in all that we do - we believe in making every single day count and living life to its absolute fullest.

We plan to one day convert our own van into a mini home on wheels. The thought of waking up and experiencing the sunrise in a new place every day sounds like the dream to us. There’s so much of the world , we want to experience it all; new cultures, new landscapes, new shots for our Instagram (make sure you give us a follow @_.escapingtheordinary._). We always find ourselves being drawn back our first summit- Helvellyn in the Lakes. After not much thought or prior knowledge on sailing, we decided last year to take the plunge and buy our own little sailing boat that we keep at Glennridding sailing club, just at the bottom of Helvellyn. The Lake district feels like home away from home and having our own little sailing boat there just makes it feel that bit more special to us.
