About Me

Winter Hill ,Horwich, UK
About Me Jake ,I am 11 years old and have Autism. This Blog is about what I can do not what I cannot,sometimes people think I cannot because I have autism ,this blog is about challenging that!I have lots of special interests, in particular running, exploring and this blog shows a small amount of what I get up to! Please be careful as some of activities I do may look easy are not , I know Winter Hill very well I can get off safely and know what to do when the weather closes in ,to keep myself safe I use high performance clothing and footwear,waterproof/ breathable/reflective/thermal layers. in layers so I keep warm and dry , I take my safety seriously and I always take care when out exploring. My dad is very experienced on the fells he is teaching me how to keep safe.I can use a map and compass, the hills can be windy , very cold, be wet , misty and boggy. STAY SAFE! check out under my link's for advice on safety from Bowland and Pennine Mountain rescue.

We are visiting Brussels to go and see one of the best dinosaur museum I have been too !

some of buildings we saw on the way to the park

It was a great Park

Leo and mum ! it was called Duden Parc ,
I am learning some words in  French , they speak French and Flemish in parts of Belgium !


















I had to be careful to make sure Leo held on!






Evie and a Turkish girl !





Leo had to be careful at the top of the slide !
