The Outdoormädchen, or “outdoor girl”, covers all aspects of life in nature. She has been enthralled by nature ever since she began to walk and is always ready to give new types of sports and tech­niques a try. She has been writing the blog since April 2011, filling it with informative, amusing and simply well-written posts. In the process, the writer always focuses on how women in the branch are doing. Hiking in a skirt, multi-day tours in the Wicklow Mountains and geocaching in all types of weather – and what chal­lenges being a mother brought with it.

Or would you have worked off all of the calories from a slice of Tiramisu by the time you reached this point?
