Top Family Blog

#1 – The Outdoor Dad

Congratulations to our winner Oli at The Outdoor Dad… The Outdoor Dad also featured in our Top 10 Outdoor/Adventure and Inspirational blogs! Oli is the ultimate #dadgoals sharing his adventures with his partner Gemma and their boy Sonny! From canoeing to camping Oli is sure to inspire any parent to make the most of family life.

‘I’m Oli, a first-time dad enjoying the biggest adventure of my life, and the smiley little dude in my arms is my boy Sonny. I can’t even begin to tell you how much of a legend he is, and this blog is all about the outdoor adventures we’re having together.

I was lucky enough to grow up in the green (and wet, and windy, and cold) hills of the southern Pennines with parents who let me roam wherever I wanted. From a young age I was obsessed by the outdoors, but it’s only since becoming an adult with a 9am-5pm job that I’ve really begun to appreciate what it means to me.’

‘I started this blog as something to do around work as I love writing, and now I try to spread my love of adventure and the outdoors with everyone I meet! I’m a sucker for a mountain, after a childhood spent playing with skipping ropes on the stairs, climbing the ‘Matterhorn’!  If I’m not at work I’m either up a hill, by the sea, in the gym or learning to climb!’
