This was a very  special trip. Early one May morning four fitness bloggers including myself gathered together at Gatwick Airport for the first time, unaware that it would be the start of a beautiful friendship between us all.

I write about health and wellbeing because, and as I said in my article, “Encouraging others to live a balanced, active lifestyle is a good thing.
