Geocaching

Has anyone else heard of this strange passtime?

It’s where you download an App on your phone, which leads you to the middle of no where to look for dirty, usually wet, containers. In which you find a log-book to sign, sometimes a little toy of some description – which you swap for another toy you’ve taken with you – and sometimes an insect, slug or something equally ‘gross.’ You then put it all back for the next Geocacher to find!

It’s a passtime that we have taken to doing to encourage the kiddo to enjoy going out on walks more often and it’s working a treat! We’ve been out most days looking for some of the boxes/caches in the local area and even found new places to walk in order to try and discover the treasures!

While out and about, I also take the camera with me and do a spot of that too. It’s been really nice being able to get out and about, discovering new places while partaking in a couple of different hobbies. In the future, I’ll probably combine a few post-types together (Photography, exploration/walking & geocaching) but I wanted to see if any of my fellow bloggers on here also took part in this particular hobby and if you do, did you find anything exciting on your travels?
