Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling. - Jane Austen (Persuasion 📚) •• •• •• •• #chasingleaves#autumn#fall#nature#pleasure#janeausteen#hiking#bookstagram#wanderlust#livethelittlethings#mytinyatlas#mindfulness#ntchallenge#countrylife#getoutside#outdoors#getaway#explore#wanderfolk#instagood#instadaily#roamtheplanet#landscapelovers#naturelover#landscape#welivetoexplore#instamood#discoverearth#visualsoflife#passionpassport

Another sunset for two. Happy birthday to my solid rock 👦. I still remember our first proper date, years ago, when I ve told you all my flaws and then inflicted you with my list on why we would never work. You thought I was totally insane and proved me wrong 😜 These verses have been read in so many weddings I ve been to but I never truly felt it in a personal level until I met you. «  Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud... it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. » It sounds extremely corny but it is true. 💜 •• •• •• •• #chasingleaves#sunset#sky#love#lake#nature#birthdayboy#countrylife#myunicornlife#getoutside#outdoors#getaway#wanderlust#explore#wanderfolk#walk#instagood#livethelittlethings#instadaily#roamtheplanet#landscapelovers#naturegram#naturelovers#landscape#welivetoexplore#instamood#discoverearth#visualsoflife#passionpassport

On the run again with my new shoes and having a fierce staring competition with a cute calf on the fields. Another post about my er-runs 😕 but I just love this place...and running. If anyone would have told me a year ago that I would be a runner one day I would be laughing my socks off. Are you completely insane? What would possess anyone to go for a run? It’s boring, and painful and I have breasts that, even though small, keeps moving around and besides I can’t run because I have a collection of foot/ankle injuries from being a pretty reckless hiker and two bad whiplashes that I will never fully recover from. There a Brazilian/Portuguese saying that sums up my situation: « Nao gospe para cima que cai na testa » literal translation: Don’t spit up or will fall in your forehead. Basically a little gross way to say never say never! Which I did many times over in my life. When I was on my late teens to early 20s I (silly) though I had myself all figured out and although I have come a long way and I am much more flexible, life still shows me that you always have room for improvement. So here I am, running more than I should (almost daily) and loving it. I mean you must be out of your mind not to love running right 😳😆? It ticks all the boxes: get my daily minimum of 10k stepson only a few minutes, it burns calories, it improves my cardio fitness, I can challenge myself, spend time in nature and breathe fresh air (💕 cold morning air), it gives me energy for the rest of the day, you can see progress quite quickly and it’s a form of meditation. I mostly run for the mental benefits, it just makes me feel good, the rest is a bonus. If you are a runner hater like I was just give it a try, remove the barriers/excuses and see how you feel. If I can, anyone can! If you are a beginner I highly recommend One You Couch to 5K app. Having Michael Johnson as a coach really motivated me on my first 9 weeks. Oh dont underestimate your running shoes, it makes a big difference and find a good shop to help you. Just got my new @saucony thanks to Runners Need Exeter for helping me choose them. And nope I’m not paid to advertise but if something is good is worth sharing

The donkeys, the birds, the pretty view and my morning run. I am used to run in Lincolnshire, or as I call it my Flatshire, not many hills there so running from Sidmouth up to the Donkey Sanctuary farm and back was a bit challenging for a hill-virgin, my calves are on🔥 but the scenery was worth the pain. •• •• •• •• #chasingleaves#hills#devon#runnersofinstagram#countrygirl#morningrun#instagood#travelgram#wanderlust#nature#nomad#livethelittlethings#instamood#sunlight#countrylife#outdoors#calvesonfire#takeawalkinthecountryside#wanderfolk#welivetoexplore#travelgram#hiking#mytinyatlas#flashesofdelight#explore#instadaily#discoverearth#visualsoflife#blessed#landscape

We drove 5 hours to Glasgow from Lincolnshire. The northern we drove the worst the weather became. After a night in heavy weather we woke up in a very damp boat and more rain. Setting off this morning from Largs we were preparing ourselves for character building weather but within 1 hour the rain stopped and the sun even came out from behind the clouds ⛅️ The Scottish 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 landscape always surprises me. It’s rugged and beautiful. Sailing ⛵️ from Isle of Bute towards Portavadie we had this beautiful sky over our heads, just look like it has been painted. I love 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland. Pictures don’t do it justice but it’s worth the try •• •• •• •• #chasingleaves#scotland#sailing#sailingstagram#countrylife#boatlife#outdoors#instagood#instamood#weekend#wanderfolk#wanderlust#welivetoexplore#travelgram#livethelittlethings#instatravel#getaway#nomad#mytinyatlas#wanderer#flashesofdelight#explore#thehappynow#instadaily#discoverearth#visualsoflife#blessed#landscape#passionpassport

I love dragonflies, they are definitely one of my top ten insects together with fireflies and ladybirds 🐞. (I am such a 🤓)These are damselflies, they are similar to dragonflies but slimmer and smaller, they may have been around for 250 million years and when they mate they form a heart shape figure or a wheel. I love walking around here in the summer, there are so many of them and they are everywhere! They look like little fairies and they are so Avatar-ish! •• •• •• •• #chasingleaves#naturephotography#nature#damselfly#mytinyatlas#travelgram#avatar#wanderlust#wanderer#flashesofdelight#explore#thehappynow#getaway#instamood#instaphoto#outdoors#wanderfolk#pursuepretty#passionpassport#instatravel#welivetoexplore#getoutside#instagood#livethelittlethings#instadaily#roamtheplanet#naturegram#naturelovers#discoverearth#visualsoflife

Having a blue day! Having more than one nationality can be a real pain when following sports especially the World Cup. To be honest I would rather watch rugby than football in general but when you grow up in Brazil, football is not something you can completely dismiss and watching the World Cup is a must. After the disappointing knockout from Brazil 🇧🇷, I was really looking forward to see England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 against France 🇫🇷 and support both teams in the final, but it was not meant to be 😞. Feeling privileged to have experienced another World Cup final win. Victoire bien méritée! Bravo les bleus!! 🇫🇷⚽️🙌🏻😍🍻🥂🍾🏆 •• •• •• •• #chasingleaves#livethelittlethings#instapic#instamood#weekend#soccer#sport#coupedumonde2018#visualsoflife#myunicornlife#mytinyatlas#nomad#flashesofdelight#weekendvibes#grateful#allezlesbleus#bandofun#worldcup2018#football#vivalafrance#fifaworldcup2018#champion#sportlover

Does my head look big in this? It surely feels surprisingly heavy. I’m not sure I’m trying to hang loose 🤙🏻 or make a ‘call me ‘ sign 📞. Had such a great time down at the RAF to celebrate the 💯 years, checking out the Typhoon guys taking off and landing from their fly past down in Buckingham Palace a few days ago. Happy days! •• •• •• #chasingleaves#plane#100years#noise#travelgram#passionpassport#instatravel#instamood#instapic#getaway#mytinyatlas#explore#wanderlust#nomad#worldtravel#pursuepretty#wanderfolk#welivetoexplore#instagood#travelstoke#wanderer#leadinglines#sdmtravels#lookup#feelgood#bandofun#celebration#livethelittlethings#thehappynow#myunicornlife
