Meet Alex, from British Exploring.
"If you asked me when I was younger what I would be doing with my life you would have got a vacant stare and a mumbled answer along the lines of ‘doing…. Something…. Somewhere’.
Though the specifics were somewhat lacking what I was certain of at that age, was that my life should involve exciting and challenging experiences; exploring what was around me and having adventures along the way.
What I have learnt is anything that puts you outside of you comfort zone, making you do, see or even feel something you have never done before is a form of exploration.
With a population of 53 million very different individuals in England we at British Exploring know that ‘exploration’ covers a very wide scope. With this in mind, we want you to let us know what the word ‘Exploring’ means to YOU.
Be it collapsing into bed at the end of a hard days walking, trying out a kebab at the local takeaway with a slightly dubious food hygiene rating, or camping out for the first time; nothing is too big or too small!
Send in your photos and 140 character explanation of why you relate your image to exploring - keeping in mind that the more original, the more personal the answer is to you the better.
With the prize includes a £500 bursary for one of our summer 2015 expeditions, so who knows what future adventures this could lead to…
