We met in 2012 and instantly hit it off despite having very different interests.
He tested me over the next few months including a trip to the Lake District when he skinned and butchered a deer for dinner and we jumped in freezing cold water in the mountains.
Six months later we moved in together and I found out a lot more about him, including what he considered to be ornaments.
In 2013, we went skiing (my first time ever) and then spent a week in the Sahara Desert – a first again of course!
Then in 2014, we visited Sweden where we kayaked and wild camped the Stockholm Archipelago and then canoed and camped at the Malingsbo-Kloten Nature Reserve. We got engaged here with the help of Mikael of Nordic Discovery and this was the beginning of a long friendship.
Most recently Adam built his own canoe and drove it out to Sweden. I flew out to join him at the end of his trip and we canoed in the same place we got engaged four years earlier.
Now we are embarking on the next chapter of our lives and Adam is soon to head out to Ontario Canada for the winter. Just short of four months apart…..
