About our guest

After moving to the West Country in 1998, Fi developed a love in equal parts for Devon’s shoreline and moors. Following a successful career as a secondary ICT teacher, Fi now works as a freelance copywriter and author whilst managing and co-authoring the popular outdoors blog Two Blondes Walking.

Fi’s writing is inspired by long walks across the lonely moors of Dartmoor and icy swims in the winter seas of Torbay. Her second passion (after writing) is working with young people in the outdoors. Fi is a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition leader and has been an Ordnance Survey ‘Get Outside’ Champion since the programme began in 2016.
