I have always listened to music because my mum and dad play it all the time, but what really got me into it was going to shows. Our family regularly went to music festivals and when I was three, my parents took me to a festival in Wales called Green Man. I was immersed in music all day every day, and while I can’t remember much in the way of specifics, I remember being there and seeing lots of people and hearing lots of music.

Trying something new is always scary and can cause all kinds of emotions including excitement, anxiety, and perhaps fear. However, it’s always great to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. As we transition into fall, it’s an ideal time to try a different activity on our trail network. Alternatively, check out a trail or trails you have never explored before.
