Meet Andrew White - Dog-owning walking filmmaker and writer from Yorkshire.
What drives you to spend time outside?
It’s where I become alive and feel myself. Always been interested in landscapes, history, heritage and nature – and that sums up the outdoors for me.
Where are your favourite places to go?
As a Yorkshireman, I’d happily spend the rest of my outdoor life in my home county – so much to see here – but I also love the Isle of Man, the Peak District and North Wales.
What is your favourite thing to do outdoors?
I guess you wouldn’t be too surprised if I said walking (!) but I also enjoying cycling – and I’ve recently took up kayaking too… so there maybe a new TV series there…
Who inspires you and how?
My fellow Champs Eli Bishop, Glyn Dodwell and Katie Tunn.
What are your focuses this year to help people get outside more often?
Aiming to get more families out walking together and discovering the great outdoors. Also to get more dog owners to realise a great walk with their K9 friends doesn’t have to be off leads.
What are your 3 biggest life achievements?
My two daughters. My dog Mac – helping him overcome health and anxiety issues. Inspiring more people to go walking through my TV series Walks Around Britain.
3 words you live by…
Happiness, creativity, achievement.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
Can’t think of any!
