There’s a whole world out there
Our paths crossed around 12 years ago whilst working 9-5 in the same office. After a considerable number of years in the holiday letting industry (25 between us to be precise!) we both developed a serious case of itchy feet. Bound by our matched desire to go explore we started daydreaming. Sitting back-to-back in the same office we shared countless crazy ideas and more often than not laughed them away.
We both put these dreams down to our mutual love of travel and adventure. Over the years we enjoyed spontaneous trips to go run half marathons in places like Lisbon and Dublin. Decisions made to quench our ever-increasing desire of wanting to keep moving forward.
In September 2019 we took it a step further. A surfing/yoga retreat in Cornwall sounded like a brilliant idea, neither of us had ever been near a surfboard, let alone attempted yoga – what could go wrong! And there, in the wild and windswept seas of North Cornwall, it happened – the exact moment we knew we needed to take our leap of faith.
This break from the norm offered us a complete mind reset, a chance for self-discovery, and most importantly of all the realization that happiness, freedom, and personal growth are worth so much more. Safe to say, the seed was planted, and shortly after we left our 9-5 jobs and Lakes + Country was born.
So come along on our journey, we promise to keep it interesting.
