After an emotionally and physically draining project in Sierra Leone with Matt and Murray I decided to take a well deserved break in The North York Moors National Park with my partner Sarah.

There was only 10 days before my next project started at the International School in The Seychelles and I really needed some time and space to relax and reflect.

We found ourselves a traditional farm house b&b and were so pleased to be greeted by our hosts Anne and Tony with a pot of hot tea and homemade scones with fresh cream and jam upon our arrival.
 
The farm house was just on the edge of Glaisedale, about 9 miles inland from Whitby and perched very nicely in the North York Moors National Park.
The shear scale of the moorland is breathtaking, evoking a sense of natural wonder, freedom and making me proud of being a Yorkshireman.

As Peter Kay once said “it’s nice to go away but its even nicer to come back home”
