What have we been up to?!..Geocaching!

Its been a busy few weeks, with the new school run every morning, a crazy toddler and starting a masters degree, it really has been full on! But I’m back.

So what have we been up to? Our new hobby is geocaching.
Geocaching is ‘an activity or pastime in which an item, or a container holding a number of items, is hidden at a particular location for GPS users to find by means of coordinates posted on the Internet’

So basically we use the app to find an geocache in the area we are in. Once found (which can take a little while if hid well!) we sign the log inside and swap small toys for the next person to find. Theres also the possibility of finding a geocoin or travel bug, which are trackable all over the world!

Not only has this helped us get out more, but dude no longer moans when we tell him we are simply going for a walk. Now there is an incentive to go for a walk and he throughly enjoys it.

If you want to get involved the official website is www.geocaching.com . There is a great to app download here. You can upgrade the app for access to more caches but not necessary when starting out.

Happy Geocaching!
