Last year we set ourselves a challenge to visit every county in the UK. Initially set out as a 12 month challenge (we were even featured on the BBC News website!) due to our change in circumstances we are taking the time element away and focusing on intentional travel in our own country.

It’s all too easy to get comfortable when you’re at home and think “oh, yeah, we must go visit that living country museum down the road some day.” But when it’s been 10 years and you’ve still not been you’ve got too lazy.

In order to get motivated and explore our island we are setting ourselves a challenge to visit EVERY SINGLE COUNTY IN THE UK.

We will tick off and hopefully link our stories as we get through our list of UK counties. Stop by to see how we get on.
